4.0 out of 5 stars Just the job for Fuji's X10 - and others too., 22 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tamrac 5693 Digital 3 Black (Electronics)
Being an existing user of several Tamrac bags I know all about the build quality and exceptional durability of these products.
That being the case, it was a foregone conclusion that I'd be knocking on their door again for something in which to house my new Fujifilm X10 compact.

I wanted a compact case that could house the camera, a cleaning cloth, a spare battery (or two) and the memory cards. If it could be mounted on a trouser belt then so much the better.
I didn't really want to be shelling out for the extortionately priced original Fujifilm "Never Ready" leather two-part case as it doesn't hold the vital extras and anyway I wanted it to use rather than to look at. Not only that, but with the Fuji case you have to remove the lower portion to change the memory card or the battery. And changing the battery is something you tend to do a lot of with the X10! This Tamrac case does the job very well indeed.

The fact that the neck strap can be unclipped is a major plus as it means that it can be belt mounted very easily. The method of securing to a belt is via a loop at the back which is sewn at the top and secured by two press studs and some velcro at the bottom.
My preference would be for the belt loop to be stitched at both ends, but this would require the removal of the belt to fit and remove it, which is not always practical if you're going to sit down to dinner in a cafe, etc.
The fixings have proved very secure thus far and I have no worries about it coming off.

Any downsides? Well, only the usual Tamrac one. Namely, they will persist in using their own brand of clip rather than fitting something from LadderLock or similar. When you're fastening the bag you have to feed the top part of the clip into the buckle whilst keeping it all straight. If you push at an angle then the catch will 'jam' requiring you to try again.
It's not a major deal, just a tiny annoyance that keeps any Tamrac bag from earning 5 stars in my opinion.

It can also take a small manual 35mm SLR instead of a digital compact (Just!) so it's quite a versatile bit of kit really.

Can't go wrong for the price. Recommended.
