It was listed as a HARD CASE and isn't really.

When I ordered this, it was described as a HARD CASE for a point and shoot camera. I wanted something that I could store my camera in to travel with or throw in my backpack on a hike and not have to worry about my camera being damaged and this sounded like just the thing. In reality, it is and it isn't.

Is it a harder case than a fabric camera case? Yes.
Is it hard enough to be relatively crushproof like, say, an eyeglass case? No.

Some issues I have with the case:

1. With my bare hands, and very little pressure, I can collapse the empty case to half its size in the middle of the case. The edges are better reinforced. Again, it is not what *I* would call a "hard case."

2. The case is only padded on one side (the back) of the case. There is no padding at all on the other side--just a thin fabric lining.

3. I found the zippers quite "draggy"--i.e., opening and closing them took some effort, especially when the case is in the fully-open position. Sure, you don't want the zippers so free that they fall open and risk your camera falling out of the case, but you don't want them to slow that you miss a shot because you couldn't get the camera out of the case fast enough.

4. I found it pretty cheap looking for the price.

Pros:

1. Shoulder strap for the case is included.

2. The case provides a place for a belt or fanny pack strap to go through so you could wear it vs. having to hang it around your neck.

3. There is a pocket inside the case to keep accessories away from the camera.

That's too bad. I would have a problem with having a case where the zipper dragged, I need my camera at the ready, so that would really annoy me. Nice write-up!

Yes...definitely a bummer as it is otherwise perfect to attach to a belt or fannypack and have the camera at the ready. Perhaps with use the zipper will loosen up.

I love Case Logic for their laptop cases! I'm sure that their camera case is pretty good as well, but I know that you were looking for a hard case. Good luck in your search for a new one! :)
