I was looking for a case to handle my Leica X1 compact camera, after trips to all the usual places locally (didn't want to wait for specialized photo item), I went into Office Depot and found this case. Perfect, it opens completely at top so I Can slide camera in without scratching it or LCD. Padding is good. I feel case would be protected in a reasonable accidental fall. Extra pockets top of lid and side do allow for spare memory cards, camera shoe for tri-pod/monopod, etc... I can't say I have ever had a bad Case logic product, well done on this one.
