Offical Leather Case for G11 from Canon China and Herringbone strap

I bought it from Canon China,I think it is only avaliable in China at moment

unlike SC-DC65A,this case looks and feels retro.

Since I'm a retro guy, I think it makes a handsome rig. Good job.

I somehow ended up with the one for the G10 - Decent fit, but the the flip-out screen could not be used... Some delicate adjustments with a pair of tin-snips and a black sharpie to the edge took care of this in about 60 seconds. Pictured with the Domke Gripper strap.

Thanks for the quality pics. I ordered mine over a week ago so I should get it with a week. Nice looking case. Ordered from Ebay for about $28.

Re: Offical Leather Case for G11 from Canon China and Herringbone strap

Kellymac & Mrpink,

I've been to the E-Bay site for Canon G11 cases. All that I've seen are for the G9, G10...and supposedly for the G11. (wrong) The problem being the back does not have the cut-out for the G11's articulating screen. One of the sellers from China even gave a disclaimer for his site, saying he included the G11 by mistake.
Does your case have the cut-out for the G11 screen?

Regards,

G

Re: Offical Leather Case for G11 from Canon China and Herringbone strap

Hi,

I just thought I would let you know that I was able to order one of these cases on ebay. It is the correct case for the G11 in that it has the cutout in the back to allow you to use the articulating screen. It's not cheap...$119 shipped from Hong Kong but it is a lovely case and it should protect the camera very well since it appears to be high-quality rigid cowhide.

Thanks!

Wooow $119 is quite expensive,it is around $55 in China. But I think it is still worthy anyway,at least you cant find any in USA.

The strap is from a Korean brand called Herringbone

Here's their website:

hi,

I think you bought the wrong case.There are lots of fake cheap case for G10 everywhere in China,and the seller will tell you the case is supposedly for the G11.but it is not true

Re: Offical Leather Case for G11 from Canon China and Herringbone strap

I tried to go to Canon China and place an order. I actually saw the case pictured and tried to navigate to it. All I can say is that I wasn't successful...no matter how hard I tried. I won't go into detail...all I can say is it was very frustrating.

I would agree the case is terribly expensive...but I do like the idea of having low-profile protection for the camera while I'm out and about. I don't like the idea of lugging around a lot of padded baggage.

I will check out the strap...Thanks!

Hi,

The title of the product is "Original Brown Leather Camera Case for Canon G11 G10 G9" and the seller's name is "easyworldwidetrading".

I hope this helps.

I think the case you bought is actually for G10.

It is the official one, but it won't fit G11...

If you have noticed that the back does not have the cut-out for the G11's articulating screen. ( you can see the last pic I posted and compare with the seller's pics.)

Also, the official case for G11 is with the strap as the first & second pic I posted.

Hi Mr. Pink...

(Great name BTW!) I have looked at the case nine ways to Sunday and the one pictured is cut out in the back. Nonetheless, I am concerned that somehow this won't be the right case. I did take steps to make sure things would be resolved properly if the case is indeed the wrong one. The seller guarantees things and will take a return if it isn't right. I put it on AMEX so if there is a dispute it can be rectified (AMEX is very customer friendly) and it was paid through PayPal...if there's a dispute they will help out as well. Hopefully if it turns out I've purchased the wrong item, I will still come out alright.

In the meantime, I did check out Herringbone. They offer a wide variety of items but I didn't find a neck strap for cameras among them. Nice stuff though.

Maybe you can tell me how you managed to purchase this case via Canon China. I couldn't navigate to the camera case at all. It was very frustrating.
