      The Tamrac 5689 is a great fit for the later G-series Canons. It holds my G11 and a couple of spare SD cards, and accommodates a ProStrap Deluxe Loop Strap. Wear it on your belt and your co-workers and others will just think you've got a larger cell phone. The 5689 looks smart, and the Velcro means never scratching your camera with a zippered enclosure. The only caveat I have, however, is that the Velcro has tended to "pull" a little in the six months I've owned the case.

      I bought this bag because of the large size to accomodate my Panasonic LX3. I like to have the camera accessible on my belt while my Nikon D200 with a large zoom rests my camera bag over my shoulder. Most of the other digital cases I have used have been well padded but frustrating when it comes to getting to the camera and redepositing it quickly and safely. I was always afraid that I was going to drop it while fumbling with zippers and tight fitting sides.This bag takes care of all those problems. With the velcro flap I can get my Panasonic out in one easy motion and redeposit it quickly and safely. So, it does what I bought it for. Caveats or cons, unfortunately, are numerous. The bag does not have much padding in front and would be helped immensely by some.The LX3 fits very loosely, but I have fashioned a few small foam inserts which work very well. I prefer that it is a little too big rather than too tight. A little more internal or side padding would be good also. The small compartment on the outside for batteries or data cards is basically unusable (as are many on other cases).Most importantly, the belt loop is not the quick release style found on almost all other cases, so every day you have to unbuckle your belt and slide it on. Good luck getting it over to your left side easily. I appreciate the safety factor in the permanent style loop but Ive never had any problem with the quick release style, especially now that most companies include a backup snap. This is a decent case and I use it regularly with no problems. Until LowePro, CaseLogic or Tamrac come up with a large, well padded, quick release belt case this will do just fine

      Great bag

          Comments about Tamrac 5689 Pro Compact Digital Bag (Black):

          The bag fits my Canon Powershot G16 well. I would say it is the perfect fit if you don't use the Canon camera strap. But if you use the Canon strap attached to the camera like I do, then it takes some time to fit that strap inside properly when keeping the camera in the bag (you could also choose to just leave the Canon strap hanging out, but it still requires you to fold one side first). It was a problem at first, but then I found the way to fold it and now it is fine. In the other hand, getting the camera out of the bag is quick and easy.
          The material of the bag seems very high quality. The bag doesn't seem well padded, but the material itself is thick.
          I recommend this bag.

              Comments about Tamrac 5689 Pro Compact Digital Bag (Black):

              The Tamrac 5689 Compact Bag that B&H bundles with the X100S in their "Camera Basic Kit" was taken back immediately because even with a crowbar, the protruding lens on the body won't let you jam the X100S into the thing! You would think that somebody at B&H might have tried to see if the bag would work with this body before the put that bundle together. I don't really care, because if it's not in my bag with the Canons, it's gonna be around my neck anyway, and I will bet that after a few months the paint is gonna be rubbing off quite nicely…I don't mind if the brass shows through.

              I'm sure it's a fine little bag, but just not for the Fuji X100S.

                Excellent quality construction (stitching, seams, hook and loop, etc.) -- typical of Tamrac products. I bought this pouch for the Fujifilm X100S and it fits perfectly. Thanks to B&H reps for recommending this specific model.

                    Comments about Tamrac 5689 Pro Compact Digital Bag (Black):

                    I had purchased a Fuji X100s and wanted a belt pouch that it would just fit into. B&H recommended this bag for the X100S, so I took a chance and that is what this product delivers.
                    The X100s will just barely fit into it and that is exactly what I wanted. It's fairly well made but after a month and a half a couple of seams are starting to unravel.

                    I do not use the strap as I hate neck straps. I bought this to go in my belt and this is the source of my major complaint. The belt loops is fastened at both ends and I prefer the kind that velcro closes at the bottom, so that you do not have to take the belt off to put it on.

                    Fix this Tamrac and you'll have a winner.

                      I used this bag for four days at Disneyland with a Canon G-15 camera. It's the perfect size and fits like a glove. There's enough room at the bottom for a spare battery which the camera can rest on. It attaches to your belt and opens with a handy velcro fastener. About the only drawback is that you have to undo your belt to remove the case, but with a case this small and light, who wants to remove it?

                        I was looking for a well made, relatively inexpensive belt holster for the GR with a flap on top rather than a zipper and this one mostly fills the bill. It's well padded and has a front pocket for extra batteries, etc. While not the most compact example, the bag is a perfect height, with some extra room in width and depth. This makes it very easy to grab and extract the GR. I don't have an OVF for the GR or lens shade/filter adapter but it's possible that that combo might fit.

                            I got this to protect my Canon G15 when hiking or running. I put this into a small day pack. It's roomy enough for my G15 and the stock strap and is nicely padded. There was one defect--one part of the velcro closure for the small pocket ripped off from the bag material. Fortunately, it wasn't the velcro for the large flap.

If you are looking for protection for the Power Shot G cameras, this is it, padded,compact, Belt loop, quick and easy.

                                      Great little camera bag. Holds my Nikon 7700 easily and securely.
                                      fits on the belt (has a loop) and works well under a jacket. the bag also has a feature to hold extra memory cards and has a velcro tab to keep them from accidentally slipping out- somebody was thinking when they designed it!

                                          After carefull review I decided to choose this case for my Nikon Coolpix P7700. The case is built solid and it has a pocket for an extral battery and memory card. You will slide the camera end first into the case leaving your strap exposed through the flap on the case. You can't do this with other cases. You can wear it on a belt to free up your hands and neck.

                                          If using this bag for the G12, you will find a good, but not tight fit. I suggest that you buy it if you are looking to carry a few other small items in the bag--like additional battery, memory card, cables, etc. seems quite sturdy.

                                                  This case is a good fit for my G12. Not too tight. I keep spare battery in bottom of case with room on top for G12.

                                                      I just use this case to protect the overall safety of my Canon G12 while it floats around inside my back pack. Good part is that my camera fits snuggly inside. Bad part is there's little room for anything else.
