This weekend I picked up a case for my new Canon G10 camera. I had to order it at Yamada Denki, since not a single store that I went to had it in stock. It’s actually a very nice retro styled leather case.
The top and bottom parts separate easily and quickly so you can take pictures in a snap. All of the controls are open and easy to reach while the case is attached. Sorry I couldn’t take a picture of the camera in the case (I was using it to take these photos).
The bottom half screws into the bottom of the camera. So you can unsnap a couple buttons and let the top half dangle when you’re taking the photos.
Also a tripod can be attached while the case in on. Also there is openings on the side for the neck strap so you can hang it around your neck while it’s in the case. All in all a fantastic case. I recommend it to any G10 owner.
P.S. I’m now officially past 10,000 hits! Nice!

I don’t know if you noticed in yesterdays post that in the top left corner there was a blurry spot. No it wasn’t a ghost appearing in my pictures, it’s a nefarious air or water bubble. Not being able to fix it myself, and a cost prohibitive repair fee, I bought a new camera. I introduce my new Canon G10.
Please forgive the blurry spot, I used my old camera to take these pics. The G10 is basically the highest level camera that isn’t a SLR. In fact the quality of the photos are in-line or higher than some SLR cameras.
The body is fully metal which makes it very durable. The screen is a huge 3 inches and very high resolution. The controls are very easy and intuitive to use. Like the handy ISO dial on the top of the camera.
I took some test photos to try it out and see the image quality. It was night time when I got home, so I took this shot down the street at our house.
The next day I took some other pics around Kakuda.
In the mountains too.
It’s a really great camera, and I’m looking forward to taking many photos with it. Hopefully for many many years.
