Nobody wants their precious camera to be sliding around in an ill-fitting camera bag.
This bag features two positional straps which literally secure your camera in position, taking the weight of your camera, and minimising movement.
How would you feel if the screen of your much loved camera was scratched by a badly placed zip?
Here at GEM bags attention to detail is something we believe in, thats why we have screen protector flaps on internal zips. A little detail that could make a big difference.

The following devices are known to be compatible with this bag:
I am delighted with this case, which I bought for my new Panasonic FZ200. It is well designed, sturdy and beautifully made. The camera fits perfectly with the lens hood screwed onto the camera in the reversed position, leaving space for the camera strap on top. The zipped compartment inside the case neatly holds my shutter release and spare memory card, and I use the front zip pocket for car keys and phone when I am out and about. When choosing this case I also considered a similar one made by Lowepro. I decided against that after reading that the front pocket closes with a short strip of Velcro, with the result that small items such as memory cards and spare batteries can fall out. The zip pockets on the Gem case are far more secure. I would recommend this case to anyone with a Panasonic FZ200 or similarly sized camera.
Initially I had selected a different case on line. I was called within 5 minutes by a very polite young man, who informed me that the item was not in stock but could be sent to me within 28 days. I said that I needed to have a case within 21 days because I would be going overseas. The young man asked what make and type of camera I had, and within 10 minutes he phoned me to suggest an alternative, he even sent a link to my email with a picture. I called him and said I would have it. As it was cheaper, he would arrange for the balance to be credited to my bank. The following day the money was back in my account and the day after the case arrived. It was a pleasure doing business with such a polite and helpful young man.
This is an excellent bag of this type, well made and thoughtfully designed. However, it had two drawbacks, both of which can be easily remedied. As supplied, the bag comes with two 'bridge pieces' which support the sides of the camera. GEM do not appear to have noticed that modern cameras are not symmetrical and that the lens is offset to the left. The first thing I had to do, therefore, was unpick the stitching of one of the 'bridge pieces', cut it down to half the size and stitch it back up again. My second observation is that, although there is plenty of space in the lower part of the bag, there is nothing to stop your spare battery, for example, from swimming around. Another strip of velcro would solve this problem but unfortunately, unlike bags from other manufacturers which I have used, GEM have used nylon instead of a velcro compatible felt for the lining. Please, GEM, would you line your bags with a velcro compatible felt and provide three bridge pieces, two 40mm wide and one 20mm wide?
