One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Swiss Gear Sherpa Camera Case

I’ve had this Swiss Gear Sherpa camera case for more than a week now to protect and store my Canon PowerShot SD780 IS. I went with this instead of the traditional Canon Leather Case that I normally would go with, like I did for my Canon PowerShot SD630.

What I was looking for was a smaller camera case than the Canon leather case. But I wasn’t finding any luck at any of the brick-and-mortar stores for instant gratification. I came across this Swiss Gear case and it wasn’t smaller, but bigger. Funny thing is that it felt smaller in the hands despite the larger physical dimension. Maybe it’s because it’s a soft case and not a hard one.

The Canon PowerShot SD780 IS is a small camera. Because of its small size, it slides very easily into the Swiss Gear camera case. It has a lot of extra room with a good amount of padding. Not as much padding as the Canon leather camera case, but good enough for the SD780 IS.

What sold me on the Swiss Gear case besides price was the extra space where you can keep a spare battery and a SD media card. I just don’t see why many camera designers not design extra pockets and such for things like this, Canon included. A media card pocket wouldn’t take that much room!?! I found myself looking for a place to carry a spare battery and media card when I had the traditional camera cases. And as a guy, and don’t carry a purse, it sucked. I don’t like my pockets full of items.

The only real downside to this case that many cases also suffer from is the ability to snap this to a belt or backpack strap without removing/undoing your belt/strap. It does have a belt loop, but one that can’t snap on and off. It shouldn’t be hard to design something like, this since it would basically use the same design as cell phone cases these days.

Now, the question is, would I recommend it? The answer is yes. I am looking forward for this case to last me a while.
