There's also an outer pocket to carry extra film and an inner laminated mesh pocket to stow additional accessories. You can carry the TLZ Mini by the convenient top handle, use the non-slip, remov-able shoulder strap, or slide it onto your belt or the optional Lowepro Belt & Buckle.

Comments about Lowepro Lowepro TLZ Mini:

This case seems to be as good or better than the camera mfg. case that came with my previous DSLR
with the exception of not being a custom fit.

I bought this case for my recently purchased Nikon D40 DSLR. I am pleased with how well the camera w/lens fits inside. It has what feels like quality dense padding and outer material. I may try and insert some additional foam padding cut to the contour of the lens/body to attain a snugger, more custom fit.

Good but minimal case
By RussellVerified Reviewer from Los Angeles, CA on 11/22/2006
Good Value
Minimal protection
Best Uses:
City walking trips, Storage

Comments about Lowepro Lowepro TLZ Mini:

As the description suggests, this is a good, minimal case to for an SLR camera with a compact lens. It is fairly inexpensive.

Be advised that it provides only very minimal protection. I dropped my brand new D50 onto the pavement while it was in this case, and it cost me the lens. The camera body survived unscathed.

I would recommend this case for storing your camera. It will keep the dust off, and protect it from scratches and small bumps and bounces. I would also recommend this case for traveling if you have a larger, better reinforced bag in which to carry it. If you already have a nice day-pack, you can avoid buying an expensive special-purpose camera case.

I have also used it on day-trips around the city. However, it cannot accommodate anything but your camera, and perhaps a water bottle clipped to the strap, so this use will have limited appeal.
