    It’s a… camera case. Not too much to say about it, really. It’s a bit bulky for my (relatively slim) camera, so I really only use the case during transport… like, in my carry-on bag at the airport, or in the car on the way to the concert. Once I get to where I’m going, I ditch the case, ‘cos it’s too bulky, even in winter when I wear a big, puffy jacket with lots of pockets. I also wish the case had a small hole in the top that you could run the hand strap through. Most of my previous cases did, and I didn’t realize how annoying it is to NOT have one until I got this case and always have to either carefully insert the camera (with strap) into the case, or just let the strap hang out the side… which is ugly. Still, for $7.99 I can’t complain, really, It’s a name-brand Sony case for less than my local Wally World wants to generic cases.

    Having recently picked up a Canon PowerShot ELPH 300 HS I was in search of a decent case and could find none that fit my criteria locally, or seemingly on Amazon. I’m not sure what the obsession with zippered compact camera cases is, but I wish it would end.

    My requirements were pretty simple:
    * Flap closure, secured by Velcro, Magnets, or clasp
    * Modest padding
    * Secure fit for a compact camera, specifically the 300HS
    * Room for at least a spare battery and memory card

    I cannot express how much I don’t care about the strap/beltloop/fastener, or even to some extent, the material that its made of, as long as it is relatively durable.

    This case fits the bill perfectly. The camera compartment is lightly padded with a dense foamy material, covered in that velvety/microfibery stuff that lines high quality eyeglass cases, and CD sleeves. No worries about scratching the camera or display on this. The velcro flat closes securely, but doesn’t require me to fumble with the case like a zipper would. The small, zippered front compartment perfectly holds a spare NB-4L battery, and the camera compartment itself fits the 300HS snugly and securely. It is literally like they were made for each other. With this wrapping around my 300HS, I probably won’t have a heart attack if it drops to the floor or even falls down a flight of stairs.

    The strap on the back is an interesting contraption. I’ll try to add some pictures of it to better depict it. The D-Ring at the very top will make it very easy to secure to a belt loop or laptop bag with a simple carabiner.

    As is typical with most Sony-branded items, the quality is very high. The outer material is high-denier nylon, with a bit of decorative mesh-ish stuff and some vinyl/leather on the front where the logo is. The edging and all seams are well stitched, the strap on the back is VERY well stitched. There were no loose threads or thin stitching that is usually the evidence of shoddy construction. As stated before, the lining is very soft and smooth, making it easy to insert and remove the camera. Even the thin zipper used on the accessory compartment is top-notch. Sony gets an A+ in construction and durability.

    I’m usually a stickler for branding, and I’ll admit, i have to suppress my dislike at having a Canon camera stuffed into a Sony case, but in this particular instance, I couldn’t be happier having the mixed brand. If you have an ELPH300HS, and your requirements list looks like mine, this is the case you want.
