    Admittedly, I am a bit obsessive when it comes to cases. I tend to want something that fits every accessory into one place so I don’t have to search around for things. Granted, this is not a small, discreet case, however it fits the bill perfectly!! The camera has its own spot and is well protected. The headbands (one that fits the waterproof casing, one that has a open shell)?? They have their own spot too, and they both fit snug and secure. All of the other mounts, memory cards, tripod mounts, mini tripod, and other accessories?? All neatly tucked away and protected!! You may not want to take this entire case on a bike, but that’s okay…..take what you need for the day. But it is compact enough to pack in an overnight bag or weekend bag, and take everything with you. This was a GREAT purchase!!

    Good Case But…, January 6, 2015

    If you look at the photo, specifically the space where the camera fits, you’ll see that it fits snugly and securely. The one I received today has a significantly larger and differently shaped cutout resulting in about 1/2″ excess space top to bottom and 3/4″ front to back, i.e. even with the strap the camera flops around (see photo)

    Will it hurt it? Probably not and I’ll end up making my own custom inserts, but I could have saved some change buying a generic case for half the price and make my own inserts. So that’s why I note the issue.

    As for the case itself, it’s definitely well constructed, I’d rate it’s construction and materials on a par with my Tamrac, LowePro or ThinkTank gear. The design lends itself well to holding other than Sony accessories which is a plus since I won’t have need for most of them, but can always use more storage for gadgets for my cameras.

    One design complaint. It’s a water resistant case, it’s definitely going to float for a time if dropped in the water, which around here is usually mud black, might be better to have the case in an option for yellow, easy to spot from a distance. Or an idiot like me leaves it in the grass and wanders off…

    I’ll be keeping the case since it’s a decent case and by the time I pay shipping and everything not worth returning because of the loose camera fit, I’ll fix that and be happy, but something to note if your picky about that like I am. If I invest a few hundred in a camera, why take shortcuts protecting the investment.
