My two piece “leather” case for my Fuji X-10 gets quite a bit of use. If i am not using the camera, it is in the case for protection.
If i am only going to shoot with the X10, i will bring it with me inside the case, along with spare batteries and an extra SD card (these fit into my pants pockets quite easily). There is no need for a full sized camera bag.
The case has served me very well. It also adds some bulk to the camera for a more comfortable grip; though, my wife does not like it and prefers to use a “naked” camera.
Since my little X10 has it’s own, comfy, posh little house, i thought, “why shouldn’t my X-Pro1 get the same treatment?”. Why not indeed.
The Fujifilm X-Pro1 Leather, Two-Piece Case & Lens Case:
When i bought my camera, i saw the leather case, sitting up on a shelf in the store. However, i did not look for to long after i noticed the price.
As with most Fuji accessories, the case has a slightly hefty price tag for what it is. As i had pointed out in my post about the leather half case for the X-E1(https://d7100shooter.wordpress.com/2013/10/03/fuji-x-e1-brown-leather-half-case/), i could have bought a pair of leather shoes, with far more leather, for a more reasonable price.
At the time, if i remember correctly, the case cost around $180 CAD. Over a year later, the retail price is a more acceptable $74.95 at the same store at which i purchased my X-Pro1.
But wait………….. there is now a discount in place!!
With the discount, the price is now $49.95. My guess is, that they are just trying to move the stock since the X-Pro1 is probably not a big seller anymore. Well, i will happily help them get rid of one of them….
….well, at least i hope my wife will.
The “big four-oh” is around the corner:
I have not been very keen on birthdays for quite some time now. To me, it is just another day. However, i more then welcome any gifts that come my way. Strange, i know.
The “big four oh” for me is this year. Personally, i don’t understand what the big deal is or even how to celebrate it. Furthermore, i am not even sure what “special” gift to ask for. According to mom, it should be something memorable and long lasting.
I have given my gift ideas to those who need them, but i am not sure they fit the above criteria. Though, i know i will be happy with either of the ideas that i have given.
My gift idea list to my wife includes the leather case for the X-Pro1. I will be happy with that, i’m not difficult.
The case is a two-piece case, just like the case i bought for my X10. It has two snap buttons on the bottom of the lower half in order to attach the top half.
It comes with a strap, which will most likely end up being a spare for me. It also comes with a lens “pouch” that i would use for my spare battery and spare SD card.
It will be nice to be able to just go out with my camera without a camera bag. Simple & light, perfect.
Once i get the case (see how optimistic i am?), i will do a mini review as i did for the case for the X10, complete with photos.
Stay tuned and honey, if you are reading this post, this is what i would like for my birthday. Love you
Thanks for looking.
