Anybody have a source for good case/screen protector/battery for Canon elph?

finally bought a Canon sd450. I now need a screen protector for the thing, a case, and an extra battery.

Ebay has a slew of merchants, so if anybody knows of a reputable one w/ good products off-hand, that would be helpful. I found that quality of screen protectors can vary (e.g. the folks that make my treo protector don't make one for the canon).

Any other source is much appreciated..

thanks

canon probably makes a case that will fit the camera well. Lowepro makes excellent cases.

thanks..... I did find a decent-looking protector on ebay for like 8 bucks. Will look into lowepro for a case..

any old battery off of ebay will be fine, right?

i'm not sure. see if they mention their mah - essentially how long they'll last. sometimes 3rd party are better than the original mfg.

Nice-looking case, but no room for accessories: [www.amazon.com]



It is what it is.

That's the case you want - or one like it … it's almost a hard case. For the SD series, which finds itself inside your pocket more often than not, a hard case is essential. The soft cases are nice, but they do little to protect the very fragile lcd panel on back from pressure when the camera is in your pocket.

thank you for the case recommendation. I put it in my cart :-)...now to find something else I want for about $11...hmmm...

I also have a gift certificate at LL Bean and may get this one, as I think there will be room enough to hold my extra batteries when I take it backpacking..:

or, do you think the amazon one will be fine bouncing around in the lid of a backpack?

I have a Case Logic brand leather case [www.caselogic.com] that fits my Canon SD110 digital Elph exactly. I always have my camera with me in my purse, so I wanted a case as small as possible that would provide good protection for the camera. This one is perfect for that.

I got mine at Wal-Mart over a year ago, I'm sure it was between $5-$10. The sides are stretchy material that expands to fit the width of whichever compact digital camera you have. Take your camera with you to Target or Wal-Mart or the like and just try out cases there - lots of choices and you'll be sure to find one that fits exactly how you'd like it to fit.

This may be the same one - it looks a bit different because the camera shown with it is much slimmer than my Canon, so the case looks slimmer:
