I bought this Wrap Up Compact Camera Case to protect my Sony Cybershot T500. I had previously bought a leather case for it but it was cumbersome to lift the camera in and out every time I wanted to use it, and it also increased the camera's bulk in my bag.
But this case is perfection! It screws into the tripod hole on the camera and then simply wraps round the camera and fastens with Velcro. When I want to use the camera, I just pull the flap and let the case go - and it hangs down out of the way. When I've finished taking photos, I just wrap it back round and put it back in my bag. I can grab my camera and be taking photos in moments - but keep the camera protected in between shots.
The case is made of squashy, thick, stretchy nylon (I think it's called Neoprene), and offers a good amount of protection without bulk. I would think it would fit most compact cameras.
I love clever designs that solve a problem - and this does exactly that.
A LATER ADDITION TO MY REVIEW:
I ordered a second Always On case last week for my second camera, and was disappointed to find that the screw was different. On my first Always On case (a black one), the screw with which you attach the case to the camera had a little handle, which made it easy to tighten and untighten. The second case (a blue one) just has a screw head, so you need to use a coin or a knife edge or a screwdriver to tighten or untighten it. For many people this may not be an issue, but in order to download my photos to my PC I need to take the case off my camera so that I can sit the camera in its cradle.
I emailed the company that make these cases, and they replied saying that all the newest designs will have the little handles. Obviously I had an old design.
I still absolutely recommend these excellent little cases, but thought it was worth mentioning to anyone thinking of buying one: perhaps check to make sure that it's the new design with the handled screw on.
