Great Quality and Fit,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Panasonic DMW-CLX5PP-K Contoured Leather Case for Lumix Cameras (Black) (Electronics)
I purchased a Lumix DMC-LX5 because it was offered as one of Amazon's Gold Box deals. The camera had great reviews. When I purchase a camera, I consider the accessories too, primarily the spare battery cost, flash size and cost, and one of the primary accessories, the case. For a year, I had the LX5 camera on my Amazon "Wish List", as well as this case. In comparison to other cases, this case does appear to be expensive. Nevertheless, I elected to order it.
The case is superior quality. The surface is smooth, with a very custom fit to the camera. The bottom case attachment to the camera is a solid quality, knurled knob, not a die-cast knob used by some third party manufacturers. The attachment of the upper case (the larger section that covers the lens and screen) to the lower case, uses three snap connectors, typical of most custom camera cases.
I am currently using the neck strap that was provided with the camera. The camera support loops have side openings in the upper case, making removal of the upper case easy. I likely will try a wrist strap in lieu of the neck strap, which should not be a problem to use.
I highly recommend this case. I took the camera with me on an extended weekend vacation, taking the upper case off and on dozens of times each day. Never an issue with removing the upper case or returning the case to its assembled position, i.e. the fit and quality snaps worked well each time.
This case protects the camera wonderfully and this case will add value to your camera selection.
