Canon PSC-1000

Just got my case for my new digital camera today. It’s a Canon PSC-1000 (grey) made specially for the Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital ELPH. After searching online for a good deal since this is a “urgent” and “needed” purchase, Derek and I decided to get it off eBay. It was $42 shipped for 2 making it $21 each.

Amazon.com did have it, but it was going to be $26.xx + tax, making it almost $29 shipped. I did find it cheaper in a couple places, but they were either “shady” or not in stock.

The case comes in 2 colors: grey and burgandy. One of our requirements was that it was grey. I’m not much of a red/burgandy guy. Another requirement was that we needed it ASAP as I carry my camera with me everyday (in my backpack), so I didn’t want to get it beat up or scratched.

After searching high and low, the 2 cheapest reputable stores I found it at was:
JR.com – $17 shipped (using $10 Google Checkout sign-up bonus)
Adorama – $19.50 shipped (when ordering 2)

However, Adorama gave me an estimate of 4-6 weeks before it would be in stock and I didn’t even bother with JR.com

Here are some pictures of it:

Here’s a couple pictures of it with the camera inside the case (taken with my Samsung SGH-t519 camera phone):

It was shipped from Rancho Santa Margarita and took only 3 days to get here via USPS First Class (Monday to Thursday). If I had ordered from Amazon.com, it would still have taken 2 days (Monday to Wednesday), so I’m happy with the overall shipping time. If you’re interested, check out Hobby Monster. Then again, California to Washington isn’t that far.
