[I was supposed to post this yesterday (October 6) but I got so sad because of Steve Jobs' passing that I decided to wait a day more...]
I've always believed that all gadgets should be housed in a proper case. For me, this is especially true for those gadgets that have a very nice screen that can be scratched one way or another. Whenever I have a new gadget, and the wife can attest to this, I always get stressed out looking for a gadget case or bag.
However, for cameras, I find that Lowepro is a good place to start. Most of the time, their stuff are so good that, more often than not, the is the only place that I need!
Consider the Canon Powershot SX230 HS. It is a point-and-shoot camera but it is not really that compact. Even when switched off, there is a protrusion where the camera hides, ie it is not entirely flat. So, really slim cases are out.
However, there is one case that I really liked because it stretches out to accomodate the lens barrel: The Lowepro Dublin 20.
The stretchy neoprene material makes the case snug but not overly tight. The stitching is great and the construction is of high quality. There is a belt loop so you can easily attach the case to your person - one less thing to worry about losing when you are out and about making your next masterpiece. However, I rarely put things on my belt anymore (I used to do that when I had a pager, then a belt case for my phone, then... the memories...). So, I just put a carabiner on the belt loop so that I can attach it to the outside of my bag, as an example.
There is also a pocket for an additional SD card, perfect for those times when you just let yourself go with your photography.
The Lowepro Dublin 20 is a very nice case to have around and to protect your camera.
