        Comments about Fujifilm Half Case for the XE1 Camera (Saddle Brown):

        The Fuji half case gives the camera setup a fantastic aesthetic that's generated a number of compliments in the short time I've owned it. The leather seems like good quality, stiff enough to hold its shape but soft on the fingers to give a decent grip.

        I particularly like the smart touch Fuji added: there's a small hinged "door" on the bottom to allow access to the battery and memory card.

        Comes with a matching leather strap which carries the look. The case attaches with small loops around the strap lugs, it does not screw in through the tripod socket as some half cases do. However it seems to have a reasonably firm hold and I haven't experienced any significant "wiggle" or lack of steadiness.

        Be aware that there is no tripod socket on the bottom. That's pretty common with this kind of case so it doesn't affect my rating, but I've had half cases for other cameras that have managed to include one.

        The closes thing to a "problem" I've experienced is that it makes hitting the right arrow key slightly less comfortable than it would otherwise be. Very minor and not worth the loss of a star from my rating.

            I use this on my Fuji XE-1. It adds a tiny bit of bulk but a lot of protection. It is great as an extra grip surface. It is really nice looking and adds a lot to the integrity of the already appealing XE-1. I would buy this over again and recommend this to anyone interested in adding protection to their investment.

              Comments about Fujifilm Half Case for the XE1 Camera (Saddle Brown):

              This half case fits very well, and adds just enough bulk to make the X-E1 feel really good in the hand, without adding too much bulk. I did not use the leather strap, as I prefer the original Fuji strap that came with the camera. The little door for the battery and card access is very nice to have.

                  Great quality case for the money. Adds nice heft to the camera which aids in griping the camera. I would highly recommend the product. It also offers quick access to the battery and SD card slot.

                      Quality construction and well designed. A fantastic accessory for the X-E1. Only one problem:where's the tripod mount?

                          This case fits the camera very vell, and adds just enough extra mass to make it easy to hold the camera securely. The little door for access to the card slot and battery works well.

                                  this case is for people who like high quality leather. leather is smooth and fine-textured. it looks and feels expensive. strap is nice too
