    LIMS-LE-HCA6000BK-Genuine-Leather-Camera-Half-Case-Black-for-Sony-A6000 LIMS-LE-HC

    Searching for a little protection for the A6000 and came across this half case...
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/LIMS-LE-HCA6...item3ce52799b3

    Anyone heard of this one?

    Was considering the Gariz half case, but expensive!
    This would seem to be a good alternative.

    Opinions?

    Looks like a great fit from the photos and the metal bottom is awesome! Not sure about the actual "quality" though. Considering the price difference it's a hard decision.

    Looks good, added thickness of 1/4" to the bottom will give you better grip. Tripod mount is in line with lens on Gariz case it's offset to the side.
    I would love to see case like this one with Arca-Swiss groves on the bottom plate, so you can use it as a case and quick release plate.

    I went ahead and bit the bullet...

    I wanted this for my trip to Walt Disney World for a little bit of protection while being exposed to the park's obstacles... other people!
    You'll never know who or what it might get in contact with while being strapped to your side.

    I feel with the extra .25" on the bottom, it will provide a better grip as Obelix mentioned...now I'll have room for my little pinky

    Since it is shipping from Korea, their regular "free shipping" will not suffice...probably wouldn't receive it in time.
    I asked about their expedited shipping and they wanted $25 additional for the service.

    WHAT!?!

    I responded back telling them that I wasn't paying almost half the cost of the item for shipping!
    They said they couldn't do anything about the shipping cost.

    I made them an offer...which they "could" have refused.
    I asked if they would except an offer of $70 shipped via EMS and confirm that I would receive it before August 15, 2014

    They agreed.

    Once I receive the half case, I'll post some pics and let you guys know my thoughts on it.
    Unfortunately, I don't have a Gariz version to compare, but I'm sure it will be better than the Sony LCS-EBC "pleather" version!

    Thanks for the comments!

    Thanks Obelix.
    I sure hope so too...even if it arrives a couple of days after the 15th, It will still be before I leave for WDW.
    I just wanted to make sure, so I requested it for that date.

    My First Impression...

    Received the LIMS half case today.

    Came in general brown cardboard box.
    Shipped from Seoul, Korea.

    Inside, the actual product's box was completely wrapped in bubble wrap and securely taped sealed.
    The half case packaging is ok...nothing to write home about.
    Made of thin black cardboard with manufacture's logo on top lid, smaller logos on left & right sides...back contains label with specs & items barcode.
    Bottom right hand corner is label indication what color and which model it is for...this case the Sony A6000 in Black.

    Opening the exterior packaging, inside was the half case contained in a beige drawstring pouch with logo.
    The pouch is very thin and doesn't really provide any kind of protection...maybe from mild scratches.

    First impressions are very good.

    As described, it is genuine natural leather with white border stitching and a sort of cross weave pattern...very nice looking.
    The inside of the case is embossed with the logo design and is made of some soft felt, so no worries about scratching the camera.

    The base is made of 6061 Aluminum with a flat grey finish.
    There is an opening for the battery & SD card for easy access.
    The bottom has been machined out for probably weight reduction.
    In the center is the a screw that fits into the tripod mount on the camera...this is how the case is attached.
    Using either a coin or flat head screwdriver.
    Right above the screw is a threaded tripod mount to attach either a tripod plate or for me my Carry Speed sling strap ball-head.

    Fit and finish is very good, but not perfect.
    There is a bit of gap where it wraps around the grip...maybe with extended use it will mold into shape.

    The feel of the case does provide a overall better grip, but it's going to take a bit of time for me to get used to it.
    Due to the leather, I'm uncertain how much "grip" it will provide if your hand gets moist from sweat or rain/snow.
    This I will have to see.


    Here is a few pics of the half case
