Proporta Maya and Hard Digital Camera Cases Video Review

Whilst watching import jobs tick over slowly but surely, and waiting for my Samsung U10 video review to up load, I took some time to give you a glimpse at the Proporta Maya Camera Case and Proporta Protective Hard Camera Case, both of which are pretty good offerings for pretty different usage cases.

The hard camera case isn’t that hard, in fact it’s veritably squishy but still a little more protective than your average slip case. It has two zips which, when undone, reveal an elasticated insert which holds the case pretty much closed, preventing the accidental escape of your camera. Inside there’s also a little netted pocket for SD cards or, if you can squeeze one in, a spare battery. I use it to hold a MiFi access point plus a spare battery. For attachment options you have the Karabiner clip, excellent for anchoring the camera case to the inside or outside of your bag, or a harness if you’re into that sort of thing. There’s also a tight belt loop, if that’s your preferred method of securing a camera to your person.

For people who want a simple, pocketable slip case there’s the Maya Camera Case, in a very nice black and green faux leather (also available in brown/orange and white/red) with stylised stitching and a velcro fastening. I prefer it as a camera case because it offers quick and simple access to the camera inside, always handy if you keep a camera around for spur of the moment photography. IE: on holiday!

The Maya case is less protective, but still well padded, and the narrow velcro flap lets your camera lanyard out of the top so you can carry it safely around your wrist.

Anyway, without further ado see the video review below:
