Ever-ready case for Fujifilm X10 and X20,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fujifilm Leather Case for X20/X10 (Electronics)
Having read the rave reviews of this product I decided to splash out and pay a premium price for Fuji's own offering instead of buying a Chinese equivalent.
So the "Made in China" logo came as a surprise.
Still; iPhones are made in China, too.
Yes; it's good. Is it as good as others say? I'm not quite sure. I shall have to see how it lives up to wear over the next few years.
Mostly I use it as a half-case, as the flap won't cover a lens hood. But that is so with most cases. When I'm carrying the camera without intending to use it I leave the lens hood off and use the flap instead.
Some have criticised the lack of a tripod bush screw to retain it, but I prefer to have the base flat for standing on things, and the retaining straps seem reasonably durable. (They are usually the first bits to wear out on these cases.)
In the end you buy a case like this to protect the camera. And cameras are to be used, often in inclement conditions. Look at News Photographers' battered old Nikons and Leicas! Wear of the case is acceptable if the camera stays safe.
Incidentally there is no X20 or X10 logo on the case, so don't worry it will spoil the integrity of your model.

Very useful comments. The camera certainly needs/deserves a good protective case. Not certain about the implication of 'won't cover the lens hood' - I use my camera with a filter that pushes the lens cap out a little further but only attach the lens hood when shooting, for me it's not a permanent fixture. Am I worried about not having a tripod bush screw in the base - it would be a 'nice to have facility'. I work in two modes - grab shots and more seriously landscape photography using long exposure times where a tripod is essential. However having said all of that I will in the end probably buy the Fuji case.
