Anyone with a camera needs to have a case. Though some cameras are very small, they still could use some protection. The camera that I have is very awkward in shape, but I wouldn’t exchange it for any other type. However, to get the camera case that was made just for my camera, I would have had to spend a lot of money. Instead, I went out to find something else, and I was glad that I did. The one I got is not perfect, but it does work.
The one I found is a generic camera case that is square, though my camera is not. This meant that I had to buy a larger size to fit my lens inside, but even then, the fit is kind of tight. However, it does help, and it also have a strap. Besides the padding to protect the camera, the most important part of the camera case just might be the strap. It has to be long enough to sling over your shoulder, if that is what you wish, or at least long enough to fit over your wrist. It also has to be durable. You don’t want the strap to break while your camera is inside, even if it does have great cushioning.
Lately I have noticed that many new styles of camera case look more and more like a purse, and they may even double as such. These are for girls, of course, and seem to be aimed at the younger crowd. The ones I saw were pink, purple, and blue, and were covered with rhinestones. They were certainly cute, but I’m not sure that they are something that I want to walk around with any time soon. Some of them also had a pocket for a cell phone, but it was a little small for mine anyway.
If you are looking for a new camera case, but you don’t want something that looks too young or too much like the tired old bag, you can find some really neat and updated versions of the camera bag on eBay and other shopping sites that have that sort of thing. Like laptop bags, they come in all types. Some are stylish, and others are fun. They also come in colors if you can find them, and they are all pretty much the same when it comes to their main purpose. They are still made to fit the cameras of today, but they are made to be just a bit more fun.
