Also bought two of the webcameras from them
Cases from pimori (sp?) With top with holes for camera cable.
One pi is running rasplex client streaming from a synology 412+ nas. Wired . Works well for sd.

Plan on using the other as a indoor or daytime security camera.

I got mine from element14 when they first came out as well, but have just checked now and they don't appear to offer them for sale in NZ any longer, it just points you to trade me for some weird reason...

However, I can highly recommend nicegear.co.nz
They are excellent to deal with.

EDIT: Actually, I may have been wrong about them not offering them for sale in NZ... if you click on 'Business' instead of 'Consumer', it'll add it to your cart no problem. That being said, they do say "If you do not already have a Trade Account with us, please note, you must be able to provide proof of business status.", so I'm not sure what the criteria actually is to be able to buy off them.

element 14 will still sell a "Raspberry Pi and case" to consumers in NZ. Got one of them 2 weeks ago.

I ordered mine from TradeMe because that's where NZ.element14.com redirects you to. Item delivered the next day.
