X10 Premium Leather Case
Its shape is defined bt the camera. Its colour and texture is simply perfect. With its easy-opening design it adds pleasure to photography. Fujifilm's pursuit of excellence is visible in every detail. From the colour of the leather, to the spaces between the stiches and ist overall beauty. And just to prove that every detail has been considered, the top of the case snaps shut via a hidden magnet rather than a snap to prevent unnecessary damge to the lens.See all Product description

I did the right thing! I used a temporary cheap "camcorder" case while I waited this case to be delivered, and while the "camcorder" case was small and good, once I inserted my X10 on the Fujifilm case, they become one same thing in the same moment! You can take pictures easily with the camera in. If you are taking lots of pictures in the same place, you don't have to use the objective cap all the time, for this case has an excellent objective protection (does not replaces the objective cap, but prevents you from covering the objective so many times).
The only drawback this case has is that there is no compartment present where you can store memory cards, batteries etc. It will keep your X10, and that's it. But it is true that thanks to this, the case is so easy to carry.
I would definitely recommend this case, it's beautiful, well made, and it provides a really strong protection for your X10. (Also, it comes with a replacement leather strip, better than the one that comes packaged with the camera, and of better quality and strength.)
Three aspects of the case are worth describing, because not all every ready cases (ERCs) are designed the same way. Firstly, the bottom half secures to the camera via leather loops with press-studs which hook over the strap attachments on the camera - this is totally secure if the camera strap is fitted and quite easy to remove when required - but not very secure if you haven't fitted the strap. The other type of fastening routinely used on other ERCs is to screw into the tripod socket. I personally prefer the strap loop fitment as I always fit the strap, and it prevents any chance of over-tightening or cross-threading a tripod mount fitting screw, or scratching the camera baseplate, and also gives a flat base to the case (most but not all of the tripod screw types tend to have a very prominent knurled knob for the fastener which completely unbalances the case when it is set down - flat-based versions usually need a coin to fasten or unfasten them). The Fujifilm case is flat-based whether the front is closed or removed.
Secondly, the front fastens "back to front" - that is, you open it by undoing the centre front attachment point of the flap on the base, and flipping it up and over the camera backwards, so that the opened case front hangs down from the back of the camera, with the inside of the case's nose pointing towards you as you shoot. This may seem unusual as most such cases hang down from the front of the camera with the outside of the nose pointing towards you whilst open, but in fact this case's approach means it is far less likely to make an accidental appearance in your shots when you leave it attached whilst open. The case is attached to the body whilst open or closed by two press studs on the rear of the base, which are pretty strong but easy enough to unfasten intentionally and also to reattach (some designs can be quite hard to refasten). Being two points, the case front does not spin whilst open, which is good.
The third point is the other part of the closure. When opening and shutting the case front, the third attachment point at the front of the case base is used. Unusually, it is not a press stud but a concealed magnet. It has a reassuringly firm action and is inside the case material between the leather and the inner lining (on both halves) so it cannot scratch the camera. It is also well-shielded - although both halves are powerful, very little magnetism is detectable on the parts of the case where the camera is housed - most of the magnetic field is directed outwards. This design means you don't have to mess around trying to line up a balky, strong press stud fastening when reclosing the case.
Last point - this case, though marketed for the X10, is equally suitable for the new X20. The two cameras have an identical size and shape, and although this model (the LC-X10) has technically been superceded by the LC-X20, which Fujifilm markets as being suitable for both models, the only difference I am aware of is that the LC-X10 has an X10 logo embossed in the top centre of the front cover and at one end of the strap - I'm guessing that this has been changed to X20 (or something that would be suitable on either camera) on the new case, though I've yet to see one! Worth noting though, since the X10 case is currently considerably cheaper than the X20 one, and easier to find in stock. The X10 logo isn't painted in, just embossed, so it's pretty subtle.
As a disadvantage you have to uncase the camera for USB port, battery charging and if you want to use a tripod.
But for me it's not a problem and I would buy it again!

Difficult to take photos with it dangling down, so tend to remove the hanging part- which is easily done.
Good protection for camera.
