2.0 out of 5 stars No Protection, poor design., March 1, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Case Logic DCB-306 SLR Camera Holster (Black) (Electronics)
I wish I had spent more money on a better bag for my prized camera. I purchased this bag a couple months ago and it worked well for a time... until I dropped it (like less that a foot from the ground.) Because of the way that the camera sits in the bag, with the lens facing down (it fits no other way), my slr lens took the impact. So now the end of the lens is at a tilt and wedged in place. The local camera shop told me it isn't worth it to fix it because of cost since it was just the standard kit lens. So now I have to buy another lens (luckily it was just a kit lens) but that's still $125 minimum! I can't imagine a more expensive lens being damaged due to the complete lack of protection that this bag provides. I'm giving it two stars simply because the lens didn't crack. Basically this bag will protect your camera from scratches. It also doesn't provide much storage and the strap is very cheaply made. I never give bad reviews but this is just crazy. If the fall had been from higher up I might understand but what is a camera bag for? I'll be giving the bag to my mom for her point-and-shoot. I would NOT recommend this bag to anyone for their pricy SLR.

For those concerned about this eventuality, I would suggest placing a fairly stiff foam collar for the lens in the bottom of the case. Make it taller than the length of the lens by at least an inch. Place the camera lens down in the case with the lens inside the collar. This provides some extra "crush space" if you do drop the case with the camera sitting in the case lens down.

If you dropped a baby would you expect proper protection to cover any resulting injury?

If the baby was in a car seat and dropped 6 inches from the ground, Yes, I would expect the car seat to prevent injury. But it's a camera not a person. The purpous of a case is to protect the camera, if not I would just carry it around by the strap.

I agree. I have since used the case with extra padding when I need a small case I can fit in my backpack.
