Default Good case for S414?

Can anyone recommend a good case for the S414? Don't really like the looks of the Minolta case - would prefer a padded case, smaller is better, but large enough (duh) to hold the camera and an extra set of batteries. Thanks in advance!

I bought a LowePro Z20. However I specifically wanted something just big enough for the camera, a set of batts and a flash card. I also persuaded a kind guy in the camera shop to give me a wrist strap he had spare. That's nicer than the Minolta neck strap. But you need a strong wrist!

PS have you modded the on/off and function switch dial yet? VOX

Vox...actually the camera doesn't even arrive until tomorrow! What's this mod? I've read about the sensitivity of the on/off switch.

You'll find when you push the camera in and out of the bag or carry the bag, it will tend to turn itself on. However, they seem to have some overload protection to switch it off when the zoom tries to extend (inside the bag!). If you set up the camera off time in the menu, that helps as well.

Check my recent posts, I described what I did, cut out a piece of plastic like a doughnut ( I gave the sizes) and slip it under the function switch knob for more friction. Couldn't really think of anything else, other than take out batts or add a switch (tricky!). VOX
