The Fujifilm X20 is a nice, fine quality camera to use without any case - however it is a camera that you come to care about and I am happier if I have it 'wrapped' when going out and about. There are several cases made for the X20 this one is about £25 more than I expected to pay for a suitable case - but this case really is very neatly tailored for the X20, I have not resented that extra £25 . In the full case closed the camera is very well protected. Top half of case drops down after release of magnet catch and allows full use of the camera. This top half can be unfastened from its two sturdy press stud fastenings leaving the camera in a skeleton leather base and sides which hold the camera well - In this mode it is actually not that much different from using the camera with no case. Strap fastens to the camera lugs at all times, leather case has clips that hold it to the strap, camera fits tight, safe and snug into this bottom part of the case. Be aware though that you will need to fully lift the camera out of the case to gain access to battery/card bay and also for access to the side external connections bay. Not difficult or lengthy but does take a few moments. Also be aware that the way that the top of the case opens is counter intuitive - but should not be because when you have used it you will realise that all cases should open this way - the magnetic fastener is at the base, the front of the case lifts up and flips back over the top of the camera and hangs down behind ( in such a way that all back controls etc. are fully accessible, and the top part of the case is hanging down below the camera and well clear from any possibility of obstructing the lens' view). If you were happy to pay the price for this camera then I think, like me, you will be well content with the price paid for this case to keep it in.
