    This case for the Sony RX100 II fits the camera perfectly and provides all the protection one could want from a glove type case. The top half is completely removable if desired (held on by two sturdy snaps), or it can be left on while taking photos without a problem (I personally remove it while actively taking shots) though it might slow you down a bit keeping it out of the way of the lens as it swings freely. Also, taking the top half off when not transporting contributes to the overall handling and diminutive appearance of this wonderful little camera. If you’re familiar with the old leather camera cases from earlier decades, especially the 40’s and 50’s, this will certainly seem reminiscent. The overall design and implementation of features is very well executed and should satisfy just about anyone interested in protecting their valuable camera with a retro style case that will add a touch of sophistication to their Sony RX100 II. It has elicited several positive comments from those who have seen it attached to my camera. This case will not fit over the optional grip (from Sony and other third party vendors) that can be attached to the RX100 II, but I’ve found that once this case is placed on the camera it provides a very positive grip that allows for secure one-hand operation. One note regarding materials used however. The case is described as “Dark Brown Leather Camera Case.” The case is not true leather but a synthetic material which, in my view, is virtually indistinguishable from the real thing and may actually prove more durable in the long run. I would enthusiastically recommend this case both for its stylish appearance and excellent protective value.

    Great case. I get more questions about and compliments on the case, than I do on my RX100IV. The retro styling is really nice. Most people assume it’s a film camera just based on the case.
    Build quality is solid. Slightly padded on the backside, where the screen is covered. Soft suede feel on the inside is nice on the camera. I’ve had it for months now and the slight weathering and wear on the case just adds to it’s character. If you use the power cable to charge your RX100, you can access the port to do so without removing the camera from the cover. On the downside, the only thing I don’t like, is that to access the battery/SD card compartment on the bottom, you must unscrew and remove the camera from the case. Given the pretty high power consumption rate at which the batteries need changing, this can be a bit of an annoyance. But my only complaint about what is a really nice case.
