Now that I've got this, I can finally plug the camera into a power source and make extended length timelapse recordings. It works for that. Compared to the waterproof case, this case feels very fragile. I definitely would not want to drop it with the camera in there. I'm planning on using mostly for static situations, so it's not as much of an issue, but I've consistently surprised with how cheap all the genuine Sony accessories feel, despite the prices. I agree with others in that this should have come with the camera. It can be a little annoying keeping the access door open while trying to get the camera into the case.
Solves the problem of not being able to access the HDMI OUT and Audio IN when mounting the camera to a standard tripod 1/4-20 mount. Also serves as a better case than the waterproof one due to the fact that the camera lens and built-in mic don't have to be compromised by the case. This is my preferred case over the regular clear case EXCEPT when damage protection is a concern. They should have come out with this from the start.
