This beautifully designed case is pretty much a "must have" add-on for the G10 - it fits the camera perfectly, is visually totally in keeping with its "retro" look, fully protects it against bumps & scratches, won't get lost as it remains attached to the camera at all times, even with a tripod, and is quick & easy to use - just unclip the two rear poppers and the front drops down to let you take your shot. The only problem is that you have to take it off to access the camera's battery & memory card chamber which involves unscrewing the large knob on the bottom of the case, removing the camera etc., and then rescrewing the case back on - a time-consuming but unavoidable "downside" with this type of design. And, of course, it's well over double the price of Canon's "pouch case" alternative. Worth the money and the effort involved in accessing the battery & card chamber? Well... it looks great, it feels great and, once you've seen it in action, you'll want one.
