About me:

Slowed down a lot now but I still want to know . . . what's round the next bend ? . . . what's over the next hill ?
Its just a lot harder to walk up the hill these days . . .

  • Thanks again Onion Man - you were a total resolution. I need to say thanks also, to all the conntributors who helped with suggestions and  ideas - I'm really very grateful to you all.
  • Onion Man - I forgot to mention - Camera World are nil stock. Didn't want you to think I'd ignored your advice :-)
  • Hi Onion Man - That's brilliant, a Panny Part No. - perfect! I found three sources; Park Cameras, Castle Cameras, Jessops - all  quoting prices in the £58 to £60 bracket, as you said I would. My ...
  • Replied in Top-load pouch
    I can see I'm not going to get away with a brief description of what I'm looking for without getting bogged down with the "why" - so I'll explain. The GX7 doesn't come with a custom bag, so I use a ...
  • Replied in Top-load pouch
    Hi Jacques - like I said earlier, I a lready have a pouch,  I'm looking for a full-body case. Thanks for the suggestion though.
  • Hi Chas - Like you, I used a full case in my film days and yes, they can be a nuisance but I managed. I've never seen either of the straps you mention and they both look like good solutions. If ...
  • Replied in The Case
    Jim - yes, I see your point. Not normally an issue but as I'm attempting to use a case designed for a different body it might well be so in my case (excuse the pun!)
  • Replied in Case for a GX7
    Hi Len -- like I told Chas, I'm looking for the protection offered by a full case if i can find one. I'll report back on the fit of the A6000 case. (and also on the suitabilty re it getting in the ...
  • Hi Chas - thanks for that, it looks really good but its a half-case and I really want the protection of a full case.
  • Replied in The Case
    Now that surprises me, I've always thought that tripod screwfixes were universal so that any tripod could be used on any camera. Possible that I'm just not used to small-bodied cams. Just have to ...
  • Replied in Case for a GX7
    Yes, the half-case is an attractive option particularly from the point-of-view of it increasing the effectiveness of the camera grip - plus they actually improve the look of the camera (probably a ...
  • Replied in Case for a GX7
    Thanks for the suggestion Jeff - I might have to resort to that . . . Just amazed that Pany dont address the issue better - having said that, I don't have any experience of Pany, perhaps it's their ...
  • Replied in GX7 case
    Hi Martin - Thanks for the link, very interesting. I think the one specifically for the GX7 is the one I tried initially but there are some others which look as though they might accommodate the ...
  • Created question thread Case for a GX7
    Tried the Pany board but was advised to try here. Bought myself a GX7 to try the mirrorless route but I'm astounded (or wrong!) to find that Panasonic hasn't made an effective case for the camera. ...
  • Replied in GX7 case
    Yes, I realise that's the case - I couldn't decide which board would be best - a scan of this one showed plenty of GX7 references, that's why I chose it. I'll take your advice and post the question ...
  • Replied in GX7 case
    Hi Richard - Yes, already got one very similar but it's what I'm trying to move away from. I find it's too much like carrying two things. Thanks for the suggestion though.
  • Created question thread GX7 case
    Bought myself a GX7 to try the mirrorless route but I'm astounded (or wrong!) to find that Panasonic hasn't made an effective case for the camera. I thought this "Panasonic DMW-CGK22XEK" leather case ...
  • Hi Charles Thank you for not simply chucking it out when you realised - much  appreciated. Your crop is very interesting and it's made me realise that I'm guilty of automatically restricting my ...
