camera case

BillieBB from Weatherford, TX on 3/15/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Hate it!!!!!!!!!!! Too much trouble to use. The flap on top is way too cumbersome and in the way trying to get the camera in or out. Would never have bought it if I had see how it opened. Whoever designed it obviously didn't plan to use it themselves.

Pros: NONE!

Cons: Flap is in the way every time you try to get the camera in or out of the case.

Not a bad case afterall!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Overall, I like this case, but I wasn't too happy with the top of the case. Although it provides good weather protection, it is inconvenient to open as I had to almost roll the front flap over the cover to get to the zipper. I don't take pictures in inclement weather, so something a little simpler would have been sufficient. A detachable shoulder strap would be nice, as well, but is not a significant consideration in this purchase. However, it does hold my Coolpix P90 with plenty of room along with the camera peripherals.



Yes, it works on Canon SX 10 IS

Kim from Big Island, VA on 4/7/2009

After reading reviews for cases, I still was not sure if this case would be large enough for the Canon SX10 IS. I compared the interior dimensions with that of the camera and could have called on Crutchfield's advisors, but decided to just get it and hope it worked. It is perfect. It is not big and bulky and cumbersome, holds just what you need (extra batteries, computer cord, manual, shoulder strap) with a little extra space to spare. And if it rains, don't worry. This has a great rain flap so the zipper never sees a drop.



Nice bag

Shawn from San Antonio, TX on 3/8/2009

This bag is the perfect size for me. I have a Nikon Coolpix S550. I am able to fit the camera, charger, instruction book, USB cord, extra batteries and SDHC card in the bag. It has ample space for those of us who are tired of the tiny bags out there. It is not too big for those who do not wish to lug around a large bag either. This bag is sturdy, strong, and will give anyone years of use.
