Product Description

Leather Case for Panasonic Lumix LX5 Camera Brown

Customer Reviews

Also goes super-well with the automatic-open lens cap you can buy, which opens automatically when you turn the camera on and extend the lens...

It is well made, stitched well, feels good, and if it is not real leather, it still is very good quality material and I have absolutely no complaints.

Provides good protection for the camera thrown into a briefcase (though the leather case itself is so nice it cries out for its own protection!).

Yes, It's a nice case; fits well, well made and looks cool, but it is NOT leather. You will also find that the case fits so tightly that if you purchase the optional lens cover which automatically opens and closes, the case won't fit over it. I found this quite disappointing, to say the least. Unlike many other styles of cases, this case does not have any extra tiny pockets or room to keep an extra battery or extra storage media with you, so if you're expecting to be taking pictures all day when you're on vacation you may find that a bit inconvenient.

Probably a good case for $25 but be aware of 2 things.

1. The pictures give the case a nice distressed look one might expect on a slightly used real leather case. (This case is pleather). I knew it was not real leather but did not realize it would have the completely uniform brown color you see in the 3d product image. I don't imagine it will age well like real leather but maybe a little roughing up with 3M pad or some such will improve the look initially.

2. The case is very tight fit. I am hoping it will stretch out with some use but the first couple of times I have put the camera in the case it has been a very tight fit and I am somewhat afraid of damaging the camera. I have to stretch the sides of the case to slip the camera in. You need to remove the camera completely from the case to use it (it is not an ever-ready case) and so with each insertion and removal it is possible that buttons get pushed or the camera gets damaged.

On the good side. Seems high quality for the price, stitching is attractive and camera is well padded in the case.

I may or may not use this regularly with the camera.

Follow-up after couple of weeks of use.

1. Rubbing it with 3M scotch brite pad did give it the "distressed" look I wanted without breaking through the pleather. Not saying anyone else should do it. YMMV but it worked for me.
2. Case loosened up with use and no longer seems tight. It does give the camera protection but when you want to be ready for a picture you will want the camera out of the case. It is not an "ever-ready" type case.

There's very little I like about this case. The "leather" isn't leather from what I can gather, the color is an ugly light brown and it smells terrible inside the case. While I want to protect my camera I ended up just leaving this case behind and taking the camera naked instead. The positive reviews on here are kind of confusing, quite frankly.

The case fits the camera tight. Sometimes I fear the camera body might get scratched due to the friction. The case smells really bad, keep it in sun light for a few days spray some strong perfume and it will be ok ;)

If you fit the Shoulder strap on the camera then it becomes difficult to keep it in the case. I instead use the hand strap supplied with case and fit it on the grip side of the camera. So even when the camera inserted inside the case, the hand strap hangs completely outside and is easy to use...

I was expecting a case where you just flip open the front cover and you can go about shooting. When it arrived, then did I realised that the camera has to be manually inserted into the leather case. There's also straps for both the case(which is actually a holster) and the camera. The hand strap for the camera is not really that practical since it pops out from the holster and make it seemed ugly. Not attaching the hand strap is not an option either since it makes handling the LX5 a little risky. Not really that practical.

The camera case was packaged in a plain plastic sleeve, nothing else. I'm giving it five stars because it is a rigid case so it provides protection, it is also very retro stylish. It's not a Lumix brand case, nor is it leather. When you're spending $20+ bucks why would anyone expect leather? Probably a knock off but it does the job just fine and a real lumix case would run $100+. So when I'm ready to spend that, I'll shop for the real stuff.

1. Fit - does not really fit my LX5 well, it can be fitted in but not properly fitted.

2. Smell - the leather smells so much that I couldn't use it for months before the smell was gone.

I'd give 1 star for the uncomfortableness of it for the above two reasons.

first of all this case screams retro/antique.. it is very well made and the stitching is all straight and uniform.. it is padded inside, hard outside.. comes with a hand strap for the camera, and a shoulder strap for the case itself.. i am very pleased, even though it was pricey -- i feel it was worth the cost.. very nice.
