ULYSSES & Gariz Case

artm, your criteria for what is price appropriate is not a criteria anyone else participating in this discussion follows. The real world doesn't work in the manner you demand. Your "point," repeated ad nauseum, is based on a fantasy of your own making. The price of the cases discussed is a bargain. The quality is outstanding. The efficacy of the cases is high. The aesthetics are marvelous. In short, what's not to like? (Yeah, I remember: the cases are not made of neoprene and don't cost $20.)

As someone else recently suggested to you, if you don't like any of the factors that everyone else favors, go play in another thread. You've made your "point," (and it's not constructive).

pcg: I am not the only one who thinks these cases are overpriced - do some reading. Perhaps I've given others the guts to say what I have said, we'll see. I am not in my own fantasy, pcg. I will bet that even you have a price point which you wouldn't exceed for a case. You may not be too bold to say so!

I realize I offended some but so what? I've been called a racist, was I offended? Hardly, as it was an idiotic comment from flawed analysis.

Again, enough already...

p.s. I would buy a Gariz if it were half the price and had a strip of leather above the LCD. It still wouldn't be perfect for me but good enough.

Okay, we get it..you don't wanna pay the price for these cases. Now get out of the way so the ones willing can do so :)

I understand your point..somewhat. But you're barking at the wrong tree, so to speak. If you have a problem with the prices you have to complain to Fuji and the makers of these cases..not the users who are willing to gladly pay for what they perceive to be worth the cost.

Yes let's move on. I understand everyone's point of view. The thing about 'value' is subjective.

I started this thread is to let people know there's something out there to consider rather than the poorly valued case that Fujifilm gives us and priced ridiculously at that. With the money saved from Fujifilm, one can get better cases as in the Gariz one or saved some good, hard-earned money by getting the same OEM case straight from the source (China).

The thread here, as in any other threads in this forum, aims to help everyone who loves their cameras, to use them more effectively and more efficiently according to their needs. That's the thing, we do things and buy things according to our own individual and unique needs. This thread is for those who have bought the cases to put in their 2 cents of feedback so that any other people who are thinking of getting it can buy it with better knowledge.

As the new year comes and the middle east and the EURO region is imploding (politically and economically), the last thing we want is the forum to implode too. There's too many good things here to see it go down the drain like DPreview. Let's not make that happen.

I wish everyone here a blessed new year ahead!

pcg: I'm debating between the Gariz and the Ciesta case. If you had to do it over, which would you buy? I like the look of the leather better on the Ciesta but if the battery door is crazy hard to open...? What's your take now?

If you guys are set on a case without access to the camera's bottom cover, just take it to a shoe repair guy and have him cut out a hole in the bottom and stitch it up. Very inexpensive solution to your problem.

Collier, sorry to be late responding. I've been in NYCity and just back home...

The Ciesta is a fine case, period. But: If I had to do it again, I'd go the extra $20-30 and buy the Gariz. I think (1) it's a stunner, and (2) the bottom access option is ingenious. That said, removing the Ciesta takes all of about 12-15 seconds, hardly a problem. I used Luigi cases on M3s for over a decade which had an identical removal issue. At the time no one thought about it: Now we gripe! To some degree, all pretty funny. (Perspective, perspective, please!)

Of course when we do not have options, then we live with it. Now when there's someone who gives a damn about being practical, and with a metal base at that, then the value proposition goes to Gariz and of course we can gripe as there is someone who shoes it can be done.

I have the korean horesbenru case with the cut out of the bottom and keep thinking, that should be in the design a long time ago. Cheaper than the Gariz without the metal base but has the loop for the Blackrapid.

So I met the objective of getting something that is value for money, already designed the hole at the bottom in mind and is close to what i want, I can't be complaining much. And yes it looks great by the way.

Thanks. Appears it is only available for the X100. Same garish red thread for the black leather. Gariz remains a couple notches above HB on aesthetics. Still, it's nice to see increasing options.

Yeah I have a Gordys wrist strap (I plan to get a black black one and move this to my D90) and a leather neck strap (not gordys) that is now only attached to the other side, but I usually remove.

Do Gariz will definitely be better than HB. So what's left is the decision on whether to pay more for the metal base (which is really classy) or to wait for the HB's x10 equivalent. And when I mean pay more..it is like a hundred dollars more.
