    This is a basic cover for the NEX6. The material feels pretty solid, and everything works pretty well. I took off one star because the way the case is designed prevents easy access for photo taking. You have to unbutton both sides and take off the cover completely to take a photo. This is hard to explain in writing. So, suffice it to say that if you plan to use this constantly between photographs, then you will find this more cumbersome than other solutions. However, if you only treat this as a protective layer during transport in a backpack or something, and that you will take off the case completely when actually taking photos, then this case will serve you very well, at a very reasonable price.

    Nice case but doesn’t fit (terrible quality control), May 28, 2014

    The case itself is very nice especially for this price, with one critical flaw that makes it useless: It doesn’t fit (just barely).

    Since other reviewers seem to be commenting on fit variation issues (e.g. some reporting the case is too loose), it sounds like the manufacturer has a terrible quality control process and is shipping a lot of cases way off spec. If you get lucky, yours just might fit, but it’s a gamble.

    More details: The bottom of the sleeve just a few millimeters less the thickness it needs to be to actually fit over the bottom of the camera. As a result, trying to screw it in all the way causes the rear lip of the sleeve to press against the display smashing it upwards dangerously, so I didn’t try to force it (scary, as this might have even damaged my camera). I tried everything to see if I could extend the lip, but the bottom just doesn’t have enough depth.

    I’ve read the other reviews and it boggles my mind that we are all talking about the same product (or are we?). I received my camera case about a week ago and immediately put it one my camera. No problem at all and fits perfectly. It very obviously is made for the NEX-6 because it avoids covering any sensor or dial or viewer. Unlike one reviewer, I have no trouble swinging the LCD viewer out as SONY intended. Maybe the issue is bad quality control, but I took a chance and was rewarded with a cover that is just right for my camera. I give it only four stars though because the two bottom snaps are secured very tightly and I don’t want to force them and ruin my cover. This is only a minor problem though since the hanging upper cover is not in the way for any shooting I will do. It is well worth the money to try it.
