I love the case. It does most things I want from a case. But I do have an issue with the camera holder. The ribbon cable comes out under the pi and has to be bent to get back up to the top, past the sd card, which is awkward. I've already snapped an sd card trying to loop the cable through. If the lens hole was slightly higher, the camera could go in the other way up and the issue would go away. Or is there a trick to this that I'm missing?

Excellent product. How long will it take to become available? I need 25 Quattro Raspberry Pi cases as soon as possible.
