Good protection and fast access to your camera
on 8 January 2015
I bought one of these camera wraps for my waterproof Panasonic FT3 camera then tried it on my other compacts cameras and found it a perfect fit for all and I've since ordered more for the rest of my pocket compact cameras - I'm converted!
The case measures 114mm wide x 210mm long and will fit most compacts up to 25mm thick. My Panasonic FT5 is 295mm thick at its widest point but the case still fits thanks to its stretchiness. The neoprene cases have most stretch including the pink spot while the black & white check, which has a PVC outer has less so bear in mind the fabric if your camera is a bit over 25mm.
It fits by screwing into the tripod socket on the camera which is great for cameras such as the FT3 where the battery and memory card compartment are located on the side of the camera. For cameras with battery access on the base then it simply slides along a runner so there's no need to remove the case.
The only downside is if you regularly use the tripod socket then you'll need to remove the wrap completely. However, if you simply stand the camera on a flat surface for 'tripod shots', then the base of the wrap and its flat screw ensure this is still possible and the camera will still be stable.
I like the wrap because it provides protection to the vulnerable lens and monitor while also ensuring the wrap can be quickly unfastened to take a quick pic without having to fumble around with zips or other fastenings on a conventional case.
It's such a simple but most ingenious design which is very practical in use, yet doesn't seem to be widely available. A highly recommended purchase for any small 'pocket' camera.
