I would appreciate a make and type recommendation for general purpose carrying case for the S2 IS/S3 IS camera. The camera case should protect the camera from reasonable banging around and just big enough to carry a set of spare batteries and spare memory card.

I have an old 35mm camera that has a snug fitting leather case. Great for out

in the woods. Do they still make them and if so what one fits a S2 ?

Thanks for any info.

Also how much banging around can digital cameras take ?

I took my 35mm camera hiking, got a few bangs on rocks and trees.

It also survived a few falls in slick creek beds, will a S2 survive such ?

Thanks for any info.

I was a Lowepro fan with my previous camera (Minolta Dimage 7Hi), but I couldn't find one that had a fit I liked with my Canon S3 IS. I picked up a Case Logic WBC4 at Wal-Mart for under $10 and it seems to have a nice snug fit for the camera with plenty of pocket space for batteries, etc. Check at http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=4875469.

With the 100 do you have space for anything else (e.g. lens adapter, extra batteries etc?)??
Otherwise there is the 110...

What did you get as a case for the Canon S3? How does it fit?

How about the lowepro REZO 110 (http://www.lowepro.com/Products/Shou...zo_110_AW.aspx)??

Anyone try this bag? Looks like it could fit the S3 and some accessories. I'd like the 4 million dollar home by Crumpler but its a bit pricey..

Looking for a bag that can hold:

S3
Lensmate 52mm adaptor
batteries
Spare SD card
Maybe battery charger (small) - not essential

But that isn't toooo bulky and obvious that its a camera case. Any suggestions??

I have both the Crumpler 3 Million Dollar Home and 6 Million dollar home. If I decide to carry just the S3is with the lens adapter attached with some spare batteries then I use the 3 Million dollar home.

If I wanted to bringalong my Ipod Video, mini Sonyvideo cam and Tele and wide lens converter then the 6 Million dollar Home is th eone I use.

You have any pics of the S3 in the 3 million dolllar home (open)? Just for comparison, there are no crumpler store near me so I'll have to order online...:roll:

:|Anyone else have pics of their S3 + accessories in their bag?? :idea: Read lots of posts about 2$ million home being fine for S3 + lens adpator, others say 3$ just about fits (its only 1 inch deeper from the specs, same width etc), Ahh! This is tough.

Would go for the M-Rock Rocky Mountain or Lowepro Edit 110 but they look too much like camera bags, will be walking round the city with my cam, don't want to look too much like a tourist and get mugged!
