Searched for a little protection for the A6000 and came across this half case... http://www.ebay.com/itm/LIMS-LE-HCA6...item3ce52799b3 Cost was $57.95 with free Economy shipping. Was considering the Gariz half case, but it's so expensive! This seemed to be a good alternative...at almost half the price. I wanted this for my trip to Walt Disney World for a little bit of protection while being exposed to the park's obstacles... other people! You'll never know who or what it might get in contact with while being strapped to your side. I feel with the extra .25" on the bottom, it will provide a better grip...now I'll have room for my little pinky Since it ships from Korea, their regular "free shipping" I wouldn't have received it in time. I asked them about their expedited shipping and they wanted $25 additional for the service. WHAT!?! I responded back and told them that I wasn't paying almost half the cost of the item for additional shipping! They said they couldn't do anything about the shipping cost. I made them an offer...which they "could" have refused. I asked if they would except an offer of $70 shipped via EMS and confirm that I would receive it before August 15, 2014 They agreed. Received the LIMS half case today. Came in general brown cardboard box. Shipped from Seoul, Korea. Inside, the actual product's box was completely wrapped in bubble wrap and securely taped sealed. The half case packaging is ok...nothing to write home about. Made of thin black cardboard with manufacture's logo on top lid, smaller logos on left & right sides...back contains label with specs & items barcode. Bottom right hand corner is label indication what color and which model it is for...this case the Sony A6000 in Black. Opening the exterior packaging, inside was the half case contained in a beige drawstring pouch with logo. The pouch is very thin and doesn't really provide any kind of protection...maybe from mild scratches. First impressions are very good. As described, it is genuine natural leather with white border stitching and a sort of cross weave pattern...very nice looking. The inside of the case is embossed with the logo design and is made of some soft felt, so no worries about scratching the camera. The base is made of 6061 Aluminum with a flat grey finish. There is an opening for the battery & SD card for easy access. The bottom has been machined out for probably weight reduction. In the center is the a screw that fits into the tripod mount on the camera...this is how the case is attached. Using either a coin or flat head screwdriver. Right above the screw is a threaded tripod mount to attach either a tripod plate or for me my Carry Speed sling strap ball-head. Fit and finish is very good, but not perfect. There is a bit of gap where it wraps around the grip...maybe with extended use it will mold into shape. The feel of the case does provide a overall better grip, but it's going to take a bit of time for me to get used to it. Due to the leather, I'm uncertain how much "grip" it will provide if your hand gets moist from sweat or rain/snow. This I will have to see.
