Advantages hardwearing, little pocket for spare memory card
Disadvantages expensive and quite bulky
When I went out on the hunt for a case for my Sony Cyber-shot U DSC-U30/S camera, I was looking for a few basic things:1. The camera had to fit snugly into the case
With these ideas in mind I went off to investigate all the usual camera/electornics shops nearby. I soon began to realise that I has little chance of getting everything I was after.
On the up side, all the cases were fairly sturdy, had storage pockets and were in gerneral within a reasonable price range.
HOWEVER, the smallest cases that any of the shops had on offer would have fitted two Cybershot-u cameras in it.
All I had to judge from was the picture in an order catalogue that was briefly waved at me, but assuming that the case tailor made for the camera would be ideal, I bought it.When the case arrived I was rather disappointed.
Yes, the camera fitted in snugly, there was a little pocket in the back that would hold a spare memory card and it seemed fairly sturdy,BUT....
with the camera measuring at 8.5cm x 3cm x 4cm I was rather disappointed to find my sleek, slinky, tiny camera, when popped into its little case, now measured 9.3cm x 5cm x 5.5cm!!! That's two and a half times its original volume!!! On top of this, there was no way I was going to be able to store spare batteries in it, and since I tend to go through batteries more quickly than memory cards, this wasn't ideal!On the more positive side, it definitely seems to be sturdy enough for general travel. I haven't yet tried any extree sports with it! (it is most definitely NOT waterproof)
