I bought this case from Jessops yesterday:

http://www.jessops.com/online.store/categories/products/lowepro/apex-60-aw-black--47601/show.html

It's the LowePro Apex 60 and is the smallest case you can get to fit this beast. Well at least that's what the Jessops salesman told me. But although it's a snug fit, the camera does squeeze in nicely.

The case is actually better quality than I expected, It has 1 divider inside and 2 internal pockets, also has a rubber base plate and a stow-able waterproof canopy, a belt fastener and a neck strap.

Pretty good value in my opinion.

Actually the case described above does feature a velcro-secured belt-loop.

Entirely not obvious, but once you pointed it out and I did a little snooping, you are correct. My concern/complaint is that I'd ideally like something that is easier to open when it's hanging off my belt, but I suppose I can keep looking and get something to get me by in the mean time.

Thanks!

I agree - this case, whilst snug in two dimensions, does feel a little fat along the lens axis direction, too. A simpler velcro-top belt case would be better for quick access, imho.

Lowepro Newport 30

Picked up the Lowepro Newport 30 at Best Buy here in the US - comes in 3 or so colors - and fits the camera quite well. It's not too padded so it's overall not terribly larger than the camera. It has a belt strap.

The reason I chose the LowePro Apex 60 is the fact it has extra internal compartments, a rubber bumper base and a waterproof cover yet still be very compact, quality materials and really good value. I managed to get it on special offer for £21 though I think it's around £28 now (but probably available elsewhere cheaper)

See the Jessops video for this case:

Well worth it in my opinion.

The only official accessory I see on either the AT&T or Samsung site is a screen protector. I'm currently using a small cheap CaseLogic camcorder case that was in a discount bin at Staples. It is bigger than I'd like, but at least it is big enough to hold the camera.

Would like to know this as well. Picked up my Galaxy Camera today at AT&T and they had no cases. Went to a couple other Cell Phone Accessory stores and nothing. Nothing on Amazon. Makes me wonder if they decided they weren't going to sell enough to make it worth even a minimal order of the cases...

Search google for "Samsung Black Pouch - Samsung Galaxy Camera", you will find a case for it.
However, I order it on Dec 9 at AT&T, I have not shipped until (Dec 13) now.

Id assume thoose would be mockups of proposed accessories, and Samsung will only start making them if the camera proves successful

These seem to fit the dimensions of the camera, (I measured the one I got today) -

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hama-Canber...SRKQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1355781564&sr=8-2 - could be a little loose inside

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Hama-Canber...1_fkmr0_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1355781564&sr=8-2-fkmr0 - could be a little tight inside.

I'm actually just gonna go down to my local PCWorld tomorrow and test a bunch of bags and see which fit this baby the best.

I went go pcworld and tried on a bunch of cases, and got the Lowepro Tahoe 30. It fits the camera snugly and has a small pocket on the outside for an extra memory card and/or battery.

Pcworld is selling the camera in a bundle with the lowepro apex 20aw, which is way too small. I tested the 30aw and it was too small, and the 20aw is smaller than the 30aw.
