Introduction

GARIZ design group was established in 2003 by a professional industrial designer. They make high quality leather cases for most new cameras, often within a few weeks of release.

Gariz case uses premium leather and a metal base in their half case designs. Their products are durable and do the job. I’ve had mine for about a year, travelling all over the world, and it still looks brand new. They also focus on ease-of-use, so you’ll be able to access your battery compartment, SD slot and all buttons/functions without removing the case. This might seem logical, but most brand manufacturers like Sony, Fujifilm and Olympus don’t have these features in their available cases.

Pricing is comparable (or a bit cheaper) with major brand cases, and it is possible to order through their Facebook page.  I ordered mine and it arrived within a week.

Conclusion

Since cameras keep getting smaller and use smaller capacity batteries to keep the size and weight down,  it is a real hassle to unscrew the case while shootings to put in a new battery or SD card. It seems the Gariz case have found their niche here, providing logical, stylish and easy-to-use cases for the modern rangefinder camera. Major brands should take note!
