A quality Caselogic bag... but for very small cameras.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Case Logic TBC-302 FFP Compact Camera Case (Black) (Camera)
I own a Canon S95 and have been using a Case Logic case with it for months and it's the perfect size... close fitting, but with a bit of room for wrist strap and spare battery in zippered pocket.
I recently bought a Canon SX260 HS and after test fitting it in the case I have for the S95, I found it would work well for the new camera too.
But for some unknown and inexplicable reason, Case Logic doesn't put the item number anywhere on these cases! Two tags on the case, and neither has the model number!
So I bought this TBC-302 based on the dimensions and the fact it appears nearly identical to the case I already had.
It's not the same, unfortunately, and I found that this case is much too tight for the SX260 HS.
I finally figured out that the case I had, and wanted, is listed as a camcorder case, rather than a camera case. (I went to Case Logic and entered the camera model and it didn't even show the case I wanted and have been using.)
It turns out the case I had and wanted to buy a second one is the TBC-312 pocket camcorder case. I don't think Case Logic even makes it anymore, as it's not listed on their site, but is available here.
One thing that is different is that the TBC-312 has bar tacking reinforcing stitching on the top AND bottom of zipper compartment on front of case, while this TBC-302 only has it on top.
If you have a camera that isn't super compact and small, yet is still a small point and shoot, or a super zoom point and shoot like the Canon SX240 or 260 or the S95 and you want a case that's plenty snug but not super tight, the TBC-312 is the way to go.

Glad to help you avoid my mistake. The TBC-312 seems to have that extra .25 inch or so that makes a big difference. Still plenty snug, but you don't have to stretch the case to fit the camera, and there's a little space for strap, spare battery, etc. Don't know why Case Logic doesn't even list or suggest this case for cameras such as those I listed above.

Bought the Cannon SX 260 and was about to buy this case, but I'm going to buy the TBC-312 now. Thanks.
