Ideal for compact cameras
on 9 April 2009
I previously carried my Pentax Optio S12 camera around in a leather case to prevent the stainless steel casing getting scratched but then always had to find somewhere to tuck the case when taking shots.
This wrap is the ideal solution, it attachs to your camera via the tripod hole and wraps around the camera and fastens with a velcro strip. The bar attachment that fits via the tripod hole can be moved to the side by slightly loosening the screw should you need to access the battery/card compartments. When you want to take a photo just unwrap, (the wrap hangs below your camera still attached) take your picture and wrap camera up again.
The wrap itself measures 21cm x 11.5cm and is made of soft, stretchy neoprene fabric which is quilted for protection but not too bulky and it comes in different designs.
My camera measures 8.7cm (w) x 5.4 cm (h) x 2.1 cm (d) and this case is an ideal fit. The manufacturer guidelines state suitable for cameras up to 11.4cm x 2.5cm depth.
The picture here shows a screw fastener to the tripod hole indicating that a coin etc would be needed to undo it. Mine has a clip attached to a smooth topped screw for fastening/unfastening which folds flat when not in use.
I bought this based on the previous reviews and have to agree it's a great buy!
