On the things I invested in last year was a new camera. I wanted a few more options than just the basics, but also wasn't ready for a DSLR. The camera I finally decided on was the Canon Powershot G12.
I don't know that much about cameras--and honestly they don't pique my curiousity enough for me to learn any more than I need to know to get the job done--but this camera seems to be something between a simple point-and-shoot camera and a DSLR in function and looks.
The first thing I noticed was my new camera didn't fit in the wristlet style camera pouch. So for a few months I kept it in this clutch, which worked pretty well. I could keep the battery charger, manual, and camera together in one place.
But I wanted a pouch just for the camera and over the weekend that is what I made!
It has a drawstring top under the flap:
Overall, it turned out perfect! I can still keep everything together in the clutch, but now the camera has a little more protection in case the clutch gets knocked off my desk or some other disaster strikes.
