After shovelling through hundreds of amazon product pages searching for a case for my new Nikon Coolpix L18 8MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom (Ruby Red), I chose this one.
Many of the cases offered for this camera seemed kind of tight in their interior dimensions, and this one seemed the most ample yet compact. Many came with package deals with other equipment (including some really tempting tiny tripods, etc.) but all around, this seemed the best I could find at a good price.
Many others of tighter dimensions claimed to have room for extra batteries and HCSD cards, but the comments claimed otherwise (yes, I even read the comments to chose the right bag; call me obsessive but I want this camera to last a good long while, concealed in a hip pocket).
This one has enough room to carry some extra Energizer® e<sup>2</sup>® “AA” Lithium Batteries For digital cameras, portable audio players, and more and a few SanDisk SDSDB-4096-A11 4GB SDHC Memory Card (Blue). I would put the SD carsd in the zippered outer pocket, and slip the carefully wrapped batteries inside the main pouch alongside the carefully wrapped camera.
Right now I just have an extra SD card in the outer pouch, and the camera inside, wrapped in an extra large bandanna for extra protection. There is enough room to wrap the camera inside a large bandanna and everything to fit comfortably.
These Litium batteries have really put in alot of service so far, and give no indication of letting up soon. (I know they will falter when I least expect it, when I can least afford them to fail!)
Another really strong selling point for this camera case is the extra long shoulder strap which comes included. I am certain it can extend out to four feet. I folded it up and carried it in the outer patch (yes, it can fit inside there!) but then decided it makes more sense to leave it at home in the closet until needed, since I basically carry this camera and case concealed in my front hip pocket comfortably and safely. Fits fine, but it is good to know whenever I want to play Joe Tourist, and not Spy Camera Sam, I have that really long and comfortable shoulder strap at home.
The latches for clasping the shoulder strap are high quality. The zippers look ready for work as well, so I am counting on this case coming through for many projects down the road. It is so much easier to carry day to day at all times than my great DSLR, the Nikon D40 6.1MP Digital SLR Camera Kit with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G ED II AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor Lens, whose shoulder strap is really too short for comfort and ease of carry. I guess it’s really supposed to be a neck strap, but hey . . .
Great bag, more features than you might need that are good to have just in case (a real shoulder strap, that outside pouch) at a fair price.
You really can’t go wrong here.
