Product Description

MegaGear "Ever Ready" case is the Best Canon PowerShot G16 case

There are many cases out there and although some of them can accommodate a wide variety of cameras and models, the best ones are definitely those that have been made specifically for a certain model.

What makes the MegaGear "Ever Ready" Case stand out from the competition, is the fact that it has been designed specifically with Canon's best selling G16 camera in mind. The case is made of PU leather, which will keep your camera safe from dust and falls. Its interior is lined with a really soft fabric, which will ensure that the lens of your Canon PowerShot G16 camera won't get scratched or damaged, while you're carrying it inside the case.

But perhaps the coolest thing about the case is the fact that it uses MegaGear's, "Ever Ready, design. If you see a photo opportunity, while your camera is stored in the case, all you'll have to do is pull open the specially designed flap, and you will be able to easily take the photo, as if your camera wasn't in the case. You won't even have to take it out of the protective case in order to put it onto a tripod!

If you are looking for the best protective case for your Canon PowerShot G16 , then the MegaGear "Ever Ready" Case, is definitely the one for you.

High-quality, high-functioning, high-fashion! I am a photographer, not exactly professional, but more than a snap-shooter. I purchased a Canon G16 so I would have a small, purse-sized camera with me all the time. Since the camera goes in and out of a purse, I wanted a case to protect it from scratches, lint and the like. MegaGear's "Ever Ready" leather case is made specifically for my camera. It fits perfectly and does an excellent job of protecting my camera as I drag it in and out of my bag, without adding a lot of bulk. The case is easy to open and doesn't have to be removed in order to shoot a picture. It is very well made and I love the retro "Brownie" camera look...serious cool factor!! The neck strap is comfortable and adjustable, but I usually have it wrapped around my wrist anyway. That is my only wish for improvement on this case - a leather wrist strap, because I never shoot with my camera around my neck.

Had some surprises with the MegaGear camera case for my G16 camera.
1. Three of the seven photos in the advertisement show the camera in the case with the bottom snap unsnapped. To me, this implied the camera would be used in this manner. Wrong! The only time you would unsnap the lower snap is when you are removing the cover completely. Trying to flip the cover backward over the camera results in part of the cover covering the lens and would result in lens damage if the camera was turned on.
2. Opening the case by unsnapping the side two snaps is very clumsy. Took some practice before becoming comfortable opening the case without wearing the neck strap (to insure that camera was not dropped.)
3. The show stopper!
Trying to attach the case to the camera proved to be quite difficult and when attached, the camera was loose in the case. Discovered the problem was that the threads on the attachment screw were incorrect. After rethreading the screw, attachment was relatively easy and the camera was secure in the case.
Verdict: The case appears to provide adequate protection for the G16's vulnerable screen and built in lens cover I would only recommend this case if you are able (willing) to rethread the attachment screw.

First, the case itself is beautiful, and extremely well made. It is possibly to rotate the upper part back enough to use the camera with it on, but there's a trick to it:
Take the snap off, and flip the upper back enough to turn the camera on, then rotate it around until it's stopped by the lens. If you rotate it too far before you turn the camera on, the camera will detect the case blocking the lens and it will give you an error message.
I had a great time shooting with it all day, without having to remove the upper part at any time.
I do have two small issues, though:
One, the mounting screw on my case is very slightly offset, so I have to nudge the case to the right to get it to thread into the camera. I'm not really worried about this, though, because being a leather case, it will eventually conform properly to the camera.
Two, the nylon ends on the leather strap are pretty flimsy. I'm keeping it as a back-up strap, but I'm sticking with the one that came with the camera, because it feels more secure.

My father had an old Leica with a leather case like this one. When I saw this it reminded me of his, so I got this for my new Canon G16. It is a very durable and cool looking camera case, and I am very happy I bought it. However, please note that you have to remove the case to change the battery--something you have to do often with this camera. This requires unscrewing the brass screw that holds the case on. (It screws into the tripod mount hole.) It is a bit annoying, but I can't imagine how else they might have worked around it.

I got this case to protect my camera as compactly as possible, without having to lug any big bags around. Turns out everyone loves it, I am apparently quite hipster, and get tons of compliments. My dad had a similar case on his Canon AE-1 a million years ago, so that must be why I like this case so much. Leaving the flap attached while shooting is kind of annoying, I usually just pop it off (SUPER EASY!) and put it back on when I'm done. Great protection, fitted for THIS camera, and make you look like a pro. How could you not like this!

overall satisfied, only one element the unclipping of the cover.
i am a grab and shoot amateur photographer, the cover, if not unclipped on two points is in the way of the zoom.
therefore i unclip on the right hand side and on bottom, wich leaves the cover dangling and oftens unclips, and drops

ratio quality price: very good
patricle: strap long enough, access to controls: very good
elegance: very

I love the look of this camera case. The only thing I don't like about it is that I have to remove, unsnap, half the cover. It's not fast and easy to get the case off to take a photo. I usually have it stuffed in my bag which defeats the purpose. Hopefully you'll have a fix for this. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for that.

The case is gorgeous and seems to be well-made. The issue I have with this case is that the natural way to use the case in "ever ready" mode is to unsnap the two side snaps and let the front of the case flop down and hang by the single bottom snap. But that single snap is not that secure and the front's fallen off a couple of times. This bottom attachment point could use a redesign to make it a swiveling fastener that needs to be deliberately undone.

So, to cope and use the case with my camera for actual picture taking, I completely take off and stash the front of the case.

The case is quite attractive, though. Someone at a meeting that saw my camera in this case immediately started talking about how old fashioned it looked, like something her father had owned years ago. It does replicate that vintage old school Leica / Kodak Reflex / Exacta / Practica / Canon style hard ever ready case look and feel.
