Finding the Right Case for Your Digital Camera

Digital cameras are sensitive equipment, and you need to protect them in a well-padded camera case. The camera case you get depends on factors such as how you use (and store) your camera and how much money you have to spend:

  • Using the case that came with your camera: Some digital cameras do come with their own cases, but most of these cases are pretty flimsy and not up to the job of keeping your camera safe from harm.

  • Getting a discount case: You can pick up a decent, padded case for about $10 at a discount store, like the one shown in this figure.

    Look for a serviceable padded camera case like this one at your local discount store.

  • Heading for the camera store: If you want to spend a little more, your closest camera store has top-of-the-line digital camera cases and full-fledged digital camera bags that have room for all your batteries and other gear.

    You can get high-end camera cases and camera bags like these at a camera store.
