These filter lenses allow capturing subjects which are around 35 cm away. Akin to the bundles above, all the accessories are color-coordinated to match the color of the camera.
The case fits snugly — as it should since this is the official case from Fujifilm. The case is made of synthetic leather and costs $10. It comes with a durable shoulder strap which is adjustable to use the camera more comfortably. The case covers the entire body (leaving the flash, viewfinder) and the lid snaps to the body while covering the lens, when not in use.
As per a fraction of users on Amazon, the case seems a bit tight initially. The good news is that it opens up in the long run. Because of the snug fit, at times the camera may power on its own.
An important point to keep in mind is that there's no extra room for film packs, as it doesn't have extra pockets.

The strap snaps at the back which makes it easy to remove the top cover of the case.

The Katia case has more than 79% five-star reviews on Amazon with most users praising its quality and eye-catching prints.
