Taking pictures on the go is fun, especially with an instant camera like the Kodak Printomatic. It's smart to have somewhere safe to store your Printomatic when you're done using it or between adventures. You want something durable that will protect your instant digital camera from rough movements and the elements. Thankfully, there are plenty of good cases to choose from.
LTGEM's EVA hard case is a perfect fit for the Kodak Printomatic, and it keeps your camera safe while storing accessories and replacement photo paper secure behind zippered storage. Carry the case around with the wrist strap for convenience, or remove the strap entirely. The hard shell case will protect your Printomatic from scratches, dust, bumps, and moisture.
Over the shoulder case
The Fintie Soft Pouch is a universal-style case that fits numerous cameras, including the Kodak Printomatic. It's made of super-soft yet sturdy fabric, and it comes with a long removable strap, so you hang the case over your shoulder. The non-scratch interior keeps your camera secure while a built-in pocket offers just enough room for extra paper or other accessories.
This case is made of premium Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) to help protect against bumps, drops, and scratches. It also happens to be water-resistant so you can feel safer transporting your camera on a rainy day or when the humidity is high. Clip the case to your backpack or purse using the included carabiner or tuck it inside your travel backpack.
This soft case is the perfect option if you're looking for something that won't take up a lot of space. The interior is lined with a soft fabric to prevent scratches, and you can tote your Printomatic around using the convenient wrist strap. There are three cute patterns to choose from, and they're all lightweight and moisture-resistant.
The official case
This is the official case that Kodak sells for the Printomatic. Although it looks basic, it features a pocket for holding replacement photo paper and comes with a detachable strap so you can wear it over your shoulder. Kodak offers it in three colors: blue, black, and grey.
Compact camera bag
Alongside your Printomatic, you'll be able to store your wallet, smartphone, and a few small accessories inside this satchel. It has a detachable shoulder strap so you can sling around your shoulders like a purse or around your shoulder like a messenger bag. You can even split the interior space into sections using the included Velcro storage dividers.
Just about any carrying case will protect your Printomatic, but there are other convenience and personal factors to consider when choosing which one to buy. Cases with detachable shoulder straps are super convenient since they allow you to move about hands-free between shots. You'll also likely want a case that has a storage area of some kind so you can bring a charging cable and replacement photo paper with you wherever you go.
Of all the Printomatic cases on the market, we think the LTGEM EVA Hard Case (opens in new tab) is best in class. It's affordable, has a built-in storage pocket, and offers superior protection against drops. If you'd like your case to double as a small purse or bag, consider getting the Evecase Shoulder Bag (opens in new tab). It's got a stylish look to it and provides plenty of storage space. If you want something slim and lightweight, go with the Fintie Soft Pouch (opens in new tab). It's a small pouch that hugs your camera and comes with a wrist strap.
