      Comments about X Vario Camera Protector (Black):

      Yes, it's not cheap, but it's an original Leica case, and gives a little extra grip on the side. Of course it would be nice if the bottom hinged so you would have to take it off when changing batteries and SD cards, but it's fine. Easy on and off.

        Doesn't fit very well and you have to remove to get to a card or battery.

          • Awkward Design

          Best Uses

            Comments about X Vario Camera Protector (Black):

            Whilst the protector case is made of good quality material/leather, the fit is awkward, and the absence of a connecting strap above the lens makes the entire construction flimsy. It also makes the handling of the camera rather clumsy.

            In essence (and in particular for the price): not recommended.

                This protector is attractive, well constructed and protects the XV as advertised. The grip on the front also works well.

                A must-have addition to the camera

                  Best Uses

                  • Camera Protection
                  • Increased Ergonomics

                  Comments about X Vario Camera Protector (Black):

                  While the ergonomics of the X Vario are very good, the somewhat smooth surface of the front of this camera could use a little something extra to facilitate firm gripping. This well-made leather accessory provides that something extra. The surface is not too smooth and not rough at all. There is also a small vertical bump on the right side (not good if you're left-handed) that provides a little extra hand and finger support.

                  A secondary benefit of this leather protector (I'd not call it a case since it only cradles the camera and not fully enclose the camera) is that the bottom is protected to minimize dirt and dust from getting into the battery/SD card area.
