I’m the type of person that must have cases on pretty much everything I own. I’ve got three kids so it’s not exactly like I’ve got a lot of disposable income to replace things that get broken so I like to make sure they’re protected with cases. Today for review our friends at Love Cases over in the UK have sent me the Case Logic TBC-302-BLACK Ultra Compact Camera Case. This case isn’t for any specific camera really, it’s meant for small cameras, or ultra compact ones like the name says. This little case is meant to protect your camera and it even has a pocket to take an extra battery with you. It’s minimalistic yes, but sometimes that’s all you need.

What’s in the Box?
There is no box, the case just comes in a bag with a cardboard backing.
The case is small of course and it’s primarily made of nylon. There’s a small pocket on the front or top of the case for things like an extra battery, memory card or even a USB cable possibly.
On the back is a nylon strap that can be used to attach the camera case to your belt for safe keeping. It also has a metal carabineer for extra security or to clip it to your bag or elsewhere.
Here’s the inside of the pocket, yes it’s a striking bright yellow in color. The pocket slightly padded.
Here’s the main camera compartment, it’s a soft nylon with fairly thick padding on the top and bottom to protect your camera. The soft inside material shouldn’t scratch the camera or LCD screen. The zipper is made so it won’t actually touch your camera. When zipped shut there’s an extra piece of material under the zipper so it doesn’t touch your camera, a nice little feature really.
Impressions / Review:
This case is for ultra compact cameras like my Nikon Coolpix S570 and pretty much any camera of similar size. It’s not a case made for any specific camera, just for up to a certain size so it can fit many out there on the market today. For me this is a Nikon Coolpix case, but for you it could be for any other camera of similar size.
My Nikon uses small, flat, rectangular, rechargeable batteries. I found that I can fit the extra battery and a memory card in the front pocket comfortably.
My camera fits nice and snug in the Case Logic case. It’s a fairly tight fit, but not so much as to strain getting it zippered shut.
I think this little case will do a decent job of protecting the camera inside from most minor bumps and drops. The inside is soft so the LCD screen with be safe, you won’t have to worry about it getting scratched or any other part of the camera really.
Overall it’s a decent little case. Sure it’s not some huge thing with all kinds of pockets for accessories, but sometimes you don’t need all of that. A case like this can be used by itself or you can put it in your bag or purse and not worry about the camera getting damaged. It’s a nice little case when you don’t need to take a lot with you but still want to protect your camera. The small front pocket lets you take an extra battery and memory card with you which can be handy.
I like it, and for the price I think it’s worth it to protect your camera. So if you’re looking at camera cases then make sure you check this one out.
