Works very well
on December 29, 2013
This is a well-made and designed case. It fits the Nex 3N very well with the stock lens attached (note- it probably won't fit if you have a telephoto lens on) and has an easy snap closure. You can unsnap the two bottom fasteners and the camera is ready to use, just like that- very quick and easy. I stuffed the included microfiber cloth in the lens holder and just don't bother with the cap; protection is really fine as is.
The case bottom screws onto the tripod mount and also has a thread so you can still use the mount with the case attached. The case is pretty thick leather with felt lining inside. There are no strap loops on the case itself, you still use the camera's loops. The screen is unobstructed when you unsnap the cover. Being leather, the case itself affords good grip and looks nice.
The only downside I see with this case is the ports aren't accessible when the case is on. You have to take it off completely to get access to charge or transfer pics. Wish they'd left a cutout for that spot, even at the expense of some bump protection there.
Note: the shoulder strap that comes with it is not like the one in the pictures; it's just a nylon fabric strap and a bit on the narrow side. I'd actually say the stock strap is better, but either way it's just a strap. The case comes in a drawstring bag.
