rx100 case
Oct 22, 2012

i know this has been discussed numerous times, but i have not seen a single post mentioning the megagear leather camera case which is essentially the same as the sony leather case. See below.

http://www.amazon.com/MegaGear-Protective-Leather-Camera-DSC-RX100/dp/B008QWEKO6/ref=sr_1_cc_3?s=aps&ie=UTF8&qid=1350929609&sr=1-3-catcorr&keywords=rx100+case

would this be enough to prevent dust from entering the lens? or it's best to settle with a pouch?

Sony RX100

All the cases help to prevent dust, but not 100% guaranteed.

I got a black leather C1 case from www.cutecamcase.com; fits both my RX100 and my Richard Franiec grip...

I went with the Sony case because of the snug fit and the fitted corners on top.  The lens, charging port and battery cover are all protected.  When I looked at the mega gear case photos  on amazon the lid appeared poorly fitted and loose.  If you don't want to spend the extra money for the Sony case you'll get more protection from a pouch.

They are in Korea. Go to their site because they have other colors and what they call "the Gun Shot" sling. There's a hand strap also. Very nice looking and well made cases. The site is english friendly so you won't have a hard time navigating around. You can look up the exchange rate and they're not at all expensive. I'm deciding on the RX100 or maybe the Nex 7 but if I do I'm going to get one of those cases.

The Gariz half-case is beautiful but other than making the rx100 less slippery its not clear to me what function it provides?    Is there a version on the Gariz website that is a full case?
