In the old film cameras era, I recall that when you purchase an SLR
camera, it usually comes with a soft or a hard (leather) case. The
case is attached to the camera via a screw to the tripod mount at the
bottom of the camera. I wonder why they do not have any more of this
type of camera case? Since it is attached like a "skin" to the
camera, I usually did not need to buy a camera soft pouch case. The
case will protect the camera outer shell from dust, and perhaps little
bumps; although it will not likely help to reduce impact if the camera
falls. On a second thought, I also wonder if the new padded camera
cases that you can get at the camera stores nowadays can protect the
camera if it falls either. Anyone has some thought about this?


The correct term is NeverReady Case.

When I got my first SLR (Nikon F) in 1969 it was assumed that only rank
amateurs used the "never ready" case. Anyone who knew what they were
doing, or wanted to appear that way at any rate, just put a neck strap
on the camera and skipped the case. Have assumptions changed?

The 'manly' thing is not to have any case. The black body with the scarring
of the paint to the brass metal surface showed that you were truly the
testosterone troubadour of the photog group. ARRUGH!

If you shot any kind of volume, they just slowed you down.

Even today, I don't put my camera in a case, my wife does. She's always
telling me the camera is protected in the case. And, she's trying to teach
our daughter to keep her camera protected. So far, our daughter seems to be
more like her old man, keeping the camera out and handy.

Still, had I had my cam in a bag at the zoo, my lens would be in better
shape today...

Take Care,
Dudley

Actually, lugging around the Nikon F required some testosterone. Even
with the plain pentaprism it was (is) a formidable beast and a valuable
weapon in the field when swung at the end of its camera strap.
