In the old film cameras era, I recall that when you purchase an SLR

bottom of the camera. I wonder why they do not have any more of this
type of camera case?


Because they don't come at no cost.

But, I've never used any that ever came with any camera I've owned.


If your using the camera, you don't want the case.

There would be the case of perhaps climbing where you don't want
the camera getting bumped around. Then you have to undo the case while
your hanging from a cliff.

I carry a camera almost all the time. I don't use it all the time,
I just like to have one with me. The case is pretty effective at
protecting the camera from minor bumps. I agree that I would
normally remove the case entirely before using the camera.

If you're scrambling you should be able to stand hands free most of
the time. If it's the kind of climbing where most of the time you'd
fall off if at least one hand wasn't being used to hold you on then
you ought to be using rope protection. And if you're using rope
protection you should be able to get a camera out of a bag without too
much difficulty. Rock climbing photographers who track heroic climbers
up very difficult rock faces will change lenses while hanging (on
rope) from a cliff.

If you carry an uncased camera up difficult climbs or even scrambles
you do run quite a serious risk of it swinging round into a damaging
impact with rock, or you slipping and crushing it into the rock.
