This case just doesn't measure up!!!
on July 16, 2012
I absolutely love this case and I am very disappointed that it does not "measure up." Pun intended. ;) The dimensions of the case are promoted as 4.8" long and even in someone's wildest imagination this case isn't close to being 4.8" long. If it were it would probably fit my camera, which it does not. I bought it for the new Canon PowerShot D20 (Canon's newest camera for underwater shots). The measurements for this case are advertised as 3.2 x 1.2 x 4.8 inches and the camera is advertised as 2.8 x 1.1 x 4.4 inches. I measured the camera before ordering this case.
In the interests of anyone considering purchasing this case, I have measured the case seam to seam on the outside (with padding the room on the inside makes it a bit smaller I would assume). Now I am just using a trusty wooden ruler, but this is how it measures: 2.75 x .75 x 4.25 inches (that last measurement is a bit generous). I don't know if Case Logic has a quality control issue and the case is supposed to measure as stated, but the case we received, as I said, definitely does not "measure up"!
Other than that it appears to be a well-made case. Maybe I can use it as a change purse... just kidding... I will be returning it. I will probably order this case: Case Logic UNZB-2 Compact Camera Case (Black) from Amazon. It is supposed to be a bit bigger than this one and since this one almost fits my camera the UNZB-2 should fit. Hope that helps anyone shopping for a case for the Canon PowerShot D20.
