The NEX-5 gets Sassy in Yellow Leather!
Sep 22, 2010

Pure vanity but hey! Some people have asked about cases for the NEX line of cameras. I recently bought a Clay Smith case from EBay. It's not cheap but it is very well packaged, smells like new leather (i.e. it's not fake) and it will certainly protect the camera. In other words it's everything a camera case should be!

(And no - I am not affiliated with the EBay sellers of this product but they should probably thank me for the free advertising!! ;))

Packaged very nicely:

Fits the camera perfectly - doesn't add too much extra bulk:

A bit tight with the LCD cover but that's a good thing - prevents the LCD from staying out:

Built-in tripod socket screws into the one on the camera, literally impossible for the case to fall off this way, or for the camera to slip out:

The only issue with the leather strap is that it's quite short. It's only for carrying over the shoulder - around town. I put my Domke strap on it for hiking:

Domke works very well this way:

So how do you dress your NEX?
