The "Ever Ready" camera case

Whatever happened to the "Ever Ready" case?

I was somewhere today where I wanted to take the camera (and did in fact take some pictures) but was doing something else as well. I would have preferred the camera to be protected but didn't want to lug a large bag around, or draw too much attention to the fact that I had a camera. An ER case would have been ideal.

Maybe it has to do with the proliferation of P&S cameras which open and shut on the one hand and the variety of lenses of different sizes that we carry around on the other.

Yeah, Olympus made some leather never ready cases for the E-410 although I don't know if they were available outside Japan.

They supply a semi hard case for the E-3/E-30 cameras and a different one for the E-500/E-510/E-520 cameras in North America.

I probably haven't used one in in the past 20 years.
