I normally never use a case around a camera, I think the last time was with my 1970's Canon FTbn.
However, I found that with the XP-1 my pinkie was falling below the bottom of the camera and it was slightly uncomfortable for me. I toyed with the idea of the Fuji grip, but what put me off was that it blocked access to the SD card slot and battery compartment, a problem I could do without, I had enough or unscrewing base plates on the M8 thanks very much.
I then found the Gariz half case on eBay.
It took 3 days to arrive from Korea to the UK, a couple of days for Parcel Force to then find my address
What I like about it:
It does add extra depth to the base of the camera, my pinkie finger is now on the leather not below the camera.
The leather adds to the bulk of the grip which again helps me.
I can still access the battery and the SD card.
All camera controls are just as easily accessed as before.
The new tripod socket is nearer the centre of the camera, away from the battery compartment.
Although the base is metal, the rim of the base is leather keeping it and the table scratch free.
The quality of the leather, stitching and lining are very good.
Only one minor quibble:
Requires a coin or similar to tighten the screw into the camera tripod thread, would have been nicer with a fold away D ring perhaps. Saying that I cannot see me ever wanting to take the case off the camera.
On this basis I would give it 9/10.
