Thread: Casing required for ultra-compact in pocket?

  1. #1

    Default Casing required for ultra-compact in pocket?

    For an ultra-compact slipped into trouser's pocket and brought out day-to-day ready to take interesting shots anytime like a handphone, is it necessary to put it in a casing to prevent wear-and-tear on the camera casing or protect the camera?

    Any practical real life experience/feedbacks to share thus far, especially from photographers who have such a habit of carrying a P&S around wherever they go.

    Do you keep sandpaper in your trouser pockets? Are your trousers so big that you can still fit a casing?

    By the time wear and tear starts to show, the camera is obsolete.

    Stop being kiasu and use the camera for what it was meant for - taking pictures.

    This sounds so true! Just that I notice whenever one buys a camera, the dealer tends to bundle/give a casing like it's an absolute necessary accessory to "protect" the camera. Almost like a ingrained mentality to want to put a camera in casing before bringing out. Yeah, and I do worry about the bulk with an added casing.

    there might not be sandpaper in your pockets but there certainly will be coins, keys, mobile phone etc etc that will scratch up your camera.... get one of those $2 neoprene bags from Daiso can already
