Artisan & Artist ACAM-77 Soft Leather Pouch Review


As usual, I tend to incorporate a long introduction to explain my buying process and why I picked something specifically over the 100,000 alternatives on the market. If you’re not into longwinded introductions and don’t care why I picked this specifically, feel free to skip over this section.

The challenge with the X-E3 is that if you want to carry it around in your laptop bag, there isn’t the availability of hard cases you can find for the X100.

Attach the plate and you’ll be stuck without being able to remove the battery or SD card.

2. For some users, the choice of X-E3 wasn’t based on it is small size, and by nature, increasing size isn’t a problem for them; increasing the size often provides a more comfortable grip.
