    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 ?

    pixie,
    Thanks for the help.
    I gave up on buying online, and went to my local Jessops.

    The Lowepro 40AW didn't look as huge in real life as it did on the www!

    I bought that bag. £22.49, - even cheaper than I'd seen it online...

    Seems good quality, and has a waterproof cape that can be fitted if the weather turns a bit wet :)


    Oh! You gave up on your 602, but with a :( - It wasn't the cameras performance that let you down was it?
    It's a bit different to my old Fuji Finepix MX1400.

    hi kevenh,

    Glad you found a suitable bag - sounds a good one as it's waterproof!

    I bought a 602 back in December, but found that it had a CCD problem as every image had a mark in the same place (it looked like a burn) from a small cluster of dead pixels.

    I got a replacement camera sent to me, but this one had the same fault in a different area of the image, so I sent it back and got a refund. I haven't yet got around to buying another, as there are rumours of the 602 replacement! :)

    Nasty! Err! Is this going to be easy to spot if a prob on mine?

    I read rumours of that on a US based camera forum, but dropping my old Fuji camera on to a hard floor kinda speeded up my replacement plans :) / :(

    Yes - it was easy to spot, especially looking at the image at 100%. Here's a link to cropped sections of images taken by each of the two cameras, I used these images when I emailled Fuji, and they confirmed it was a camera defect:

    I could have kept the camera and edited them out, but I didn't really want to have to do this with every image I took!

    Great way to get a new camera! :D
