I'm looking for a half-case for the X20 (which will hopefully be arriving here soon). What I'm looking for is a case that:

* allows access to the battery and card (and ports) without removing the case
* has a tripod mount on the bottom
* doesn't have an ugly logo anywhere except the bottom (as does Gariz, Ciesta, etc.)

I suppose I should add that I can't afford a Luigi.

Thanks!
J.D.

LOOK AT GARIZ (GARIZ.OM). I HAVE ONE FOR MY X100S AND IT IS FINE QUALITY AND FUNCTIONAL.

Thanks. I went ahead and ordered the Gariz, even though I don't like the silly embossed thing on the leather.

No, unfortunately. I have the Gariz "Black Label". It has been years since I have had a Carling.

 

The Gariz is quite nice. It is a fine leather with a metal bottom. It does not have to be removed for tripod use, and is secured on there with a screw-in device that is used for the "Gun Shot" sling. I have not yet received my sling from Korea, so I am not sure how that works. I have some concern the the camera hangs down from its tripod ring device - lens side down. Should I forget that I have it on and sit down on boulder, I could damage my lens hood or worse the lens itself. I like the idea of carrying with the strap across my chest. I hate climbing over fallen trees and rocks with a camera hanging from my neck. I envisioned clipping a micro clip to the attaching thingy then to a belt loop as I hike. I think idea is good. I'll let the forum know how it works after I try it.

How does the Gariz 'Black Label' differ from the other Garix half-cases/covers?

The standard edition is a smooth fine leather. The Black Label, which costs about $20 more, is a highly textured leather only available in black. The texture is very similar to the surface of most camera coverings,

Ashley:

 

The link you posted is for a cheap ($20) imitation leather (i.e plastic) full cover, not made by Gariz.
