PROS: However, 1) the fit is acceptable and does not add bulk to the camera, 2) it looks perfectly fine, and 3) has openings for all needed places on the camera including tripod mount at the bottom and IR sensor by lens for optional remote.
4) Also--and here's why I had to give it a full 5 stars--this skin COMPLETELY COVERS the annoying, distracting, little red light that continually BLINKS beside the lens while you are recording. (The person doing the recording cannot see the light anyway, but it is very distracting for the person BEING recorded! Also if you are trying to discreetly record something, you can forget it with that blinking red light. I do not think there is any way to turn it off, unfortunately.) Anyway, I was THRILLED to find that this skin COMPLETELY blocks the blinking red light! (Way better than using black tape. ;-)
5) In addition, the skin gives some protection around the lens (which has no cover), so makes it less likely that the lens will get scraped/scratched when the camera is lying down on it's "back." (The back is of course where the lens is, as on a cell phone, so the lens side is constantly being sat on tables, etc.)
My only other issue is the power button is completely covered. The button still works, but the button lights up to tell you the camera is charging (and shut off when charging is complete). So, since it's covered, you can't be sure you're charging the camera (or when charging is completed).
Overall, it's a good little cover for the price.
All in all i give this gem an A-. Much better than most cheaply made, poorly fitted cases ive had in the past.
Bought this just to protect the overall body of the Zx3 camera. With it just being made of silicone I don't expect much protection from high drops but just wanted to reduce the chances of multiple small scratches being accumulated quickly overtime. Plus Im out on a trip soon to test it out even further!
-Fits well (for now; with it being silicone, one should expect it to stretch and warp eventually).
-Only one side has a slot open, should have both to access the other side of the camera if need be.
(only one con for now!)
Great for the price, does what it's supposed to; being made of silicone and all you should expect it to warp eventually. I recommend this only for protection of MINOR scratches, don't expect the whole shabang for an item this cheap and a product made of silicone material.

I should have purchased this product when I purchased my Kodak Z3x. The feel under your hand makes it feel as if it wasn't going to fall out of your hand. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Jeffrey Turner
it fit my camera well, nothing is blocked and it adds protection (and a better /comfortable grip).
It does what it is intended to do.
