Low profile case that protects against scratches,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bluecell Dark Brown color leather classic DC digital camera protection case/bag/cover for Sony Nex 5 Nex5 with 18-55mm Lens Camera,flash (Camera)
Just took my camera to India and I used this case to protect it from scratches. Worked well. The main case snaps off when taking many pictures, and quickly flaps open when taking a quick shot. The case doesn't add much bulk at all, which is great when traveling, and allows you to use the strap that comes with the camera (I haven't used the strap that came with the case). It allows you to keep the flash on the camera, even though I never used the flash during two weeks in India and 400 pictures.
Don't expect this case to protect the camera against anything else though - it's not sealed, so won't protect against rain, dust, or dirt. It also isn't cushioned so won't protect the camera from smashes or impacts - a clear cost of having a slim profile. The material is fake leather (a plastic composite), but it seems durable and looks fine. The inside is lined with thin felt.
End verdict: I would gladly repurchase this case.
