This case is not bad either. Very simple and great leather feel.


It's a well-made case, but it has no opening for the battery compartment like Gariz cases have. Etsy cases screw on to the camera with a metal piece that has its own tripod socket, but you have to use a coin to take it off to change your battery or SD card. That's a dealbreaker for me.

Note, Etsy is like ebay, in that it is just the site that people sell at, it isn't a particular shop. So there could be various different cases offered for sale at etsy.

In terms of getting the case off, you can get various knurled tripod screws that have a 1/4-20" screw thread, and you can then attach the camera to that threat as well. For example, if the case is only 5mm thick, you might get:

Here is one with a longer shaft:

An alternative that does not offer the ability to be mounted on a tripod, but lies flatter would be something like:
