I thought I would try this cheap case for my new Canon Ixus 230 HS. Looks-wise it's quite nice with unobtrusive black and grey fake leather. You could use the carabiner to attach your camera safely inside your bag or to your belt. Although the camera fitted well inside the case, and was well padded, I was disappointed about the additional bulk, which turns a neat little camera into a chunky item. Not really what I would want to slip into my handbag. There's a velcro seal which is clumsy and makes the flap stick out. The sides of the camera are mostly exposed except for some elastic panels. I therefore returned the case and bought the Canon leather case which is splendid - although much more expensive.
