    Does anyone have any suggestions for finding a case with a heavy duty belt clip that a moto photon will fit in while in a otterbox defender case. While the otterbox itself is great, the belt holder leaves alot to be desired for. I need something I can trust to stay clipped on my belt while working in a outdoors environment.

    OK, here's the thing. Don't buy the defender Otter Box for the Photon if you EVER want to use your camera at night. Something is messed up with the plastic "bridge" between the optical sensor and the LED flash. The flash floods half of your image at night. If you MUST have an otter box, get the "commuter" series (That's the one I have). It does NOT have a belt clip, but you can use this product : Buy Custom Accessories Universal Cell Phone Belt Clip online at CVS.com

    yeah, it's CVS, but it's the cheapest one out there. It's probably the best bet. I've posted on Otter Box's site too, about this, and they don't care apparently.

    I agree on the the fact that it floods the lens, but I disagree that they don't care.
    For starters the Photon doesn't take great lowlight pics anyway. Secondly I have dealt with OtterBox on a few occasions in the past, and they have never let me down. I will defend their customer service all day every day. More people should have the courtesy and respect for their customers that this company does. You want to fix the flash problem? Take a cotton swab and put it in some acetone then shake it off. Slowly go around the oval where the LED flash is. DO NOT drip any on the membrane. Go slowly and make sure you get 3/4's of the way down. The acetone will etch the plastic giving it a matte finish and will lessen the amount of flash pollution to your pics. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU MESS UP YOUR CASE. GO SLOWLY.
    But the problem with the weak clip is a problem I had, (PM SENT) they took care of me again.
