Case for Q

I am in need of a case to slip my Q in when I throw it into my bag...

Just something to protect the camera with lens mounted from general inside a large bag knocks and scrapes etc. Obviously something with a little padding would be ideal, and if possible a 2nd padded pocket the proper size for a 2nd Q toy lens would be super magnificently awesome (or even 2 pockets for 2 toy lenses)

Anyone got any suggestions or ideas?

Doesn't seem you're looking for a case, more a small bag.

Pentax make this case.
Pentax Q Camera Case O-CC115 White - Protection & Casings

And these you can got from a third party.
Amazon.com: COSMOS

I don't know of any cases large enough to fit the camera with the lens and have room for more lenses.
You could maybe look into the case for the limited lenses?

You can use the Lowepro Apex30, i have the 60 (holds camera with lens and two extra lenses in their baggies) they can be worn on your belt via double velcro locks or carried on shoulder with supplied strap (not manly imo)

This is the 30

I'm looking to buy a Q very shortly and have been looking at half cases which worked well with my NEX

These look really nice and seem to be about the only genuine leather ones I can find.

I bought the Pentax leather case for it. I like the look of it but I am not crazy about having to use a camera strap for it and the lack of a belt loop or clasp. Currenty use it if I am throwing the Q in a bigger bag or just carrying it in the car or in my hand.

Just picked up something like this (not sure if this is the exact model) at Best Buy for cheap. Honestly haven't tried it out yet, but I think the Q will fit nicely in it and it is nicely padded, weather resistant, and has a belt loop.

I have a little phone lanyard/strap thingy on 1 side of my Q

Works nicely for carrying around a little more securely than usual

Its something like this, but a genuine Sony Ericsson item! lol

Love the look. Makes me wish I picked up a white one now, the brown matches the white pretty well. I wonder how it would look on black...

Unless I am missing a trick, the one thing I am not thrilled about my leather Pentax Q case is that I have to detach the leather base to get access to the battery compartment or to change memory card. So kind of a pain in the butt!

apex 30 too small

I just ordered an received the Apex 30. This bag is way too small for a camera with lens mounted. I may give it to my wife or mom for their cameras, because I really like the interior pockets and velcro straps. Is the 60 big enough to put the camera in with a lens attached?

I like the look of the inverted triangular holster cases, but it's obvious one can not accurately judge the size of these things when not in person. (Case Logic SLRC 201 is probably made for a full-size DSLR -- too big, but I'd like something like this.)


I don't like the look of the quality of the leather cases I see for the Q. Does anyone have any other suggestions?
