Many thanks, may I ask which lowepro fits it best?   Would love a wee leather ever ready type but can only fond them on ebay, which I no longer trust.

Hi Paul,

Sorry took so long but I was away and then had to dig it out of my closet and look up info at Lowepro site since I didn't have model number.

The kit I bought at Costco came with a leather case Canon PSC-3200 with a belt loop. However, it is very snug and has no room or pockets for anything else :( So I looked around and found a Lowepro water resistant fabric pouch (Ridge 20) that was a perfect fit and had a zippered pocket for extra cards and an expandable 2nd pocket for extra battery, etc. It was only about $10 USD (now on the Lowepro.com website..search for Ridge 20.. sells for $13USD).

I just now took a photo for side by side comparison. The leather was really too snug and I worried when it got wet, it might shrink :(

Hope this helps. I'm sure there are lot of other candidates but I found the Ridge 20 perfect size and quite small. I usually forgot it was on my belt and a quick unzip and the camera was out and ready in 2 seconds.

Brilliant, many thanks. Leather case looks very smart but take your point re: practicality

Thank you once again

Opted for a manfrotto nano iii, right price, right size nice design.

Could only find the lowepro ridge online and really wanted something today.

Thanks again.
