    Hi

    Received Canon A70 from Digital Depot yesterday (complete with free tripod and free 256mb memory card!), looks great and very easy to use.

    Anyone got recommendations for a case (only for the camera - I've already got one of the bigger ones for holding batteries, memory cards etc).

    So far though, recommended!

    Have a look at the compact Lowe Pro range.

    A friend bought the A70 and got a small Lowe Pro pouch to go with it. It's very snug fitting and very well padded.

    He bought his from Jessops, but, as you've ordered one, that's a little irrelevant now :)

    is that one going to be big enough? Just looked at the link, and, although it's a crappy photo, it doesn't look that big.

    Apparently yes - a few people have ordered them in the forums on dpreview.com but I'll soon find out!

    Well I've got the case yesterday (the LowePro D-Res 10) and I can confirm for any budding Canon A70 users who after a case, it fits just fine (if anything I was quite surprised how big it is - not that's it's huge or anything but just larger than the standard camera).

    It can take the camera, 4/8 batteries and a few memory cards (there are special compartments for the memory cards). Just wait until you see all the padding inside - I get the impression you could drop the case from a great height and the camera would still be ok! One other unique feature is the waterproof cover which goes over the bag!

    So that's it - got my camera, charger and bag now time to start taking some serious pics - first impressions are very good though and the pics so far have come out very well!

    Cheers

    well, everything turned out OK for you :)

    Now does anyone have some suggestions for me?
    I have a caseless Fuji S602 zoom.

    The Lowepro case recommended for that camera is the 40AW.

    That looks like it has space for camera + memory + batteries plus lenses!!

    I just need camera + memory + batteries.

    If I have to :( I'll go into a hi street store and check out some bags, but does anyone have a suggestion of a bag they've used with a Fuji S602 ?
