It took me forever to find a small, functional bag for my new Canon PowerShot SX10 IS. The one made by Canon (PSC-4000) doesn't seem very functional or rugged. Here's the one I settled on:

http://products.lowepro.com/product/Nov ... 977,20.htm

The main compartment really couldn't be any smaller, but there's still room in the other pouches for 4 extra batteries and their charger. The bag is very well thought out and constructed.

I would actually recommend this bag over that one as all it's dimensions will fit the camera correctly.

I had the Clips 100 at first, felt great and seemed to fit fine, but turned out the dimensions weren't quite correct and it was too small.

Indeed, the Clips 100 is too small. The dimensions on the bag I linked to fit the camera fine. It's snug, but there's no strain between the camera and bag.

I nearly bought that one Matt, the problem is after measuring the camera, the short measurement is smaller than the camera dimension.

The dimensions are fine. Have a look at them:

Yeah, i saw those, strange thing is, i actually measured mine, and it's just shy of 4 inches deep, so i don't know where they got those measurements from :(

Hmmm...I stand corrected, and so does Canon. It looks as though they excluded the lens cap as well as the rubber eyepiece around the viewfinder from their measurement. I didn't notice the discrepancy because I load the camera into the case on its side, as shown on the Lowepro site. It fits fine like that, but doesn't fit quite as nicely right side up. Thanks for pointing this out.

Anyone considering the case in the original post should know that the camera will only fit in the case when on its side.

Tsk tsk, Canon.

So we can conclude that the Apex 110 is a good option also for the SX1?

Correct, it also has a movable divider inside with numerous pockets for everything, a weather bag (integral) and a lens wipe built in, though i'm not sure about using that yet.

Anyone using a more attractive bag/wrap that they can recommend? I hate the boxy look and wonder if there is a good wrap so I could throw it in a big purse/larger bag? Or just a more attractive case with a bit of extra room for wallet/keys....thanks

Canon's official SX10 bag will suit what you're asking.
