Canon DCC-1000 Soft Case for PowerShot SX200 IS by Canon

For my money buy the Gem case which is utterly secure, has plenty of space and costs a third of the price.

I'm a newcomer to the Shardlake series so I've only been able to buy the paperbacks; a pity since I can tell that I'm going to read them again and again. As a lawyer I can tell that the legal research is impeccable and as a fan of historical novels the wealth of fine detail makes me wholly comfortable in Sansom's London.

More please Mr Sansom.
