Nice 1/2 case without spending a 1/4 of what the camera cost me !

    Thanks to "Aperture" (London) i managed to pick up a almost un used mint RX100 today at a great price.
    I do find it SMALL...! and would like to add either a good grip or a 1/2 case etc to give me "something to hang onto" !
    no question i love the camera and can't wait to get onto the streets with it


    don't wish to ruin it with one of the nasty PU "leather Ebay cases. Need to source something for about £20 max as i believe in keeping it real and not going nuts!

    Also..3rd party batteries and chargers. I think the idea of that silly little door you plug the charge lead into is messy and will break........ so how about these battery /chargers sold on ebay ??? i prefer to remove a battery to charge it and like to carry a spare battery at all times


    thanks

    I didn't get a case, I went for one of the Aki-Asahi leather kits. Looks very nice and adds some grip too, and it doesn't block the battery door.

    I have an Ebay charger and spare battery, no problems with it at all.
