The Pentax PTX-227 Compact Flip Case is a handy way to carry around your digital camera. The case is held via its rear belt loop leaving you hands-free for other pursuits such as using your phone or even eating. The case is designed in a horizontal format that means when you wear it, it won't keep bumping into your hip. The exterior is a polyurethane material that is complimented by a soft interior lining that is gentle to the finish of your camera. It's accented by a large Optio logo.
