There's something reassuringly boring about camera cases, with their black weatherproof fabric and chunky zips. Seeing a gap in the market for something a little more stylish, Lowepro's Luxe range attempts to redress the balance.
Part fashion accessory and part camera bag, the Luxe cases come in a range of colours and are made of soft leather with contrast stitching. Inside the lightweight case, there's a micro-fibre lining to protect the camera, as well as slots to store memory cards (and credit cards) if you want to travel light. The range is targeted solely towards women — just take a look at the delicate wristlet and pastel colour collection — which is a shame given that some more neutral colours would make them appealing for both genders.
Measuring 10x4x7cm, the cases will be a tight squeeze for all but the smallest point and shoot camera. Prices range from $34.95 – $39.95.
A stylish storage solution they may be, but just like your favourite leather bag, think twice before you take your precious electronics out in the rain in one of these...
