Which Case for the Ricoh GR III

Hello there

Which case could you recommend for the gr III.
There are few pictures and infos about the gc-9 and gc-10 and I saw no pictures with the gr III inside.

Which (better?) alternatives are there?

I use a lowepro ridge 30, it's discontinued and cost me $3, but for size reference it should help. Fits well with a pocket for two spare batteries. If you want to use with the viewfinder attached you'll need a larger case.

If it helps judge other recommendations, I'll add that size differences between the older grd models (I have a grd1) and the GR iii make it a tighter fit for the latter, seems that the camera is slightly thicker.

I have the GC-10. The things I like about it are:

- It fits very tightly around the camera and doesn't add much overall bulk.
- It holds shut using magnetic strips under the leather, so you dont need to align anything it zip it up.
- Im a sucker for things made out of leather. It feels nice in the hand.

To be honest, it was expensive and when I opened the box I did have a moment of thinking Is that it?, but in actual use I like it a lot.

If youre looking for something more cost effective, Im sure there are lots of generic cases on the market that will do. Its basically a normal size for a compact camera.

I use an Optech neoprene pouch that fits snugly around the camera (a bit too snug with the viewfinder, but I don't use that much). Adds a bit of bulk but protects against moisture and provides reassurance in case of a fall. Cost me $30 CDN.

The Bundlestar Blackstar V4 Kameratasche schwarz Gre (L) works perfectly for my GRIII.
