Is the RX100 Really Fragile?
Oct 9, 2012

My RX100 arrived yesterday weeks before I expected it (Sony rewards shipping can be slow) so now I need to make a quick decision about a case.  I kept my previous camera, a canon s90, in the Olympus soft case, which doesn't 'snap' closed on the Sony.   I usually traveled with my s90, in its case, in my bag with wallet, keys, iPod, etc, figuring that the case cushioned the lens assembly, etc.  then when  I was walking about indoors or outdoors ready to shoot, I would take the camera out and wear it on a  cross-body sling strap.  I felt that so long as I didn't drop the camera or bang it hard against something a hard surface the camera was safe.

I feel as if there are a lot of threads here about  a sense of fragility about the camera and lens assembly and I'm wondering if when the camera is in my bag I need to protect it with a more solid case like the Sony 'leather' case. It would still be small enough to fit in a bag.  Any opinions from RX100 owners?
