Which one? Franiec custom grip or Sony camera case?


I recently received my Sony RX100. And, while I like the small form factor, it is as slippery as a wet bar of soap.

Right now I just have the wrist strap attached, but am thinking of either the Franiec Sony RX100 custom grip or the mucho expensive but lovely Sony carry case for better grip. Price not being a factor in my decision.

I'm not interested in 3rd party knock offs of the Sony brand case. Please do not suggest that. But might be interested in one of those generic neoprene cases from OP Tech, etc.

I usually carry my cameras (Canon G10, MFT camera(s), either in a small belt pouch i.e.. lowepro, or if carrying multiple MFT cameras, in a small shoulder type bag i.e.. domke f 5xb. Never in factory camera case(s).

For those who own either, which one did you decide on and why?

With the Sony carry case attached, is the camera still pocketable in something like cargo shorts or pant pocket? Either in full or just the bottom half case on.

Camera is for family and travel vacation snaps.

Thanks for any advice and your thoughts.
