LEATHER HALF CASES for LEICA Q
new 2017 "street photography" edition
The new Case for the Leica Q will benefit of a total renewed constructions and procedure, since the camera is very compact for being a full frame, we are doing a slimmer half case,and especially the leather get a new "special treatment" that force the leather to take the shape of the camera (it's a old secret practiced from hundreds of years between tuscan leather artisans....). There is also a new LCD backdoor integrated in the case, to make the case once dressed on camera even more slimmer (the new backdoor of the size of LCD has 2 small "wings" that make almost impossible to loose accidentally contrary to the old backdoor with bottons). It's also possible to have access to all buttons keeping protected the LCD
THE ONLY CASE WITH A 360° PROTECTION AND WITH A REALLY ERGONOMIC GRIP
the case doesn't include a neckstrap: if you want a neckstrap also you must buy it separately
- WITH OPTIONAL GRIP IN METAL, INNOVATIVE, ERGONOMIC AND STYLISH GRIP THAT FITS THE HALF CASE DESIGN (It required 6 months of work for grip S designing and production, we found this metal grip the most ergonomic we have ever tried, it is slim and do not add bulkness to half case, but is very ergonomic and studied exactly for being holded by fingers while keeping the index finger on shutter-release button. The design fits the leica and case design. Designed by us and produced by the same company that does metal accessories for the top italian and french brands. 2 layers of painting and 1 layer of protection for avoiding the fingerprints to be left on the grip complete the manifacture)
- ALL CASES HAVE ALSO A BOTTOM MAGNETIC DOOR MECHANISM FOR REMOVING MEMORY CARD AND BATTERY KEEPING THE HALF CASE ON CAMERA
- A BACKDOOR IN LEATHER IS INCLUDED IN ALL Q CASES
- AVALAIBLE IN DIFFERENT COLORS/KINDS OF LEATHER(SEE BELOW)
It's a very complex case, and we consider price is very competitive since is included the magnetic mechanism and backdoor also (that our competitors sell this 2 options at the same price of our whole case)
Our leathers, our work: each our leather is worked by tannery for us following our requests, using the same traditional methods for hundreds years (all vegetable tanned, no chemicals at all).
Our case are Hand made by some of the most skilled italian artisans with more then 30 years of experience in this field.
Each case is unique, there arent 2 identic cases couse eache leather is unique, the aging process (also hand done) its different on each case (so some case could be more homogenous, some will have some streaks, tonality could be
different also). This is not a defect, but the result a of a long hand made hand work, we dont produce hundreds of "identical copies" like in an Sindustrial process.
Vegetable Tanned Leather:
This type of natural tanning proess uses tannin extracted from plants (mimosa, chestnut, quebracho, tara, etc etc). Vegetable tannage is a very old procedure dating back to prehistoric period, a very slow process wich is considered an art. The formulas used by each Tuscan tannery is a well kept secret, a result of a careful blending of Tuscan culture and knowledge, passed down through the years from father to son.
Each skin is unique: this uniqueness means that it does not have a uniform apperance, which represents the leather quality. THe exclusive material is subject to the same wear as the person who use our half cases, the skin will gradually acquires that worn look who every person get with the life.
our best quality Black leather, very soft leather that produce a beautiful case with very confortable neck strap, with a beautiful irregular texture, not matte not glossy, impregnated with animal fats during the work in tannery, with a incredible smell of leather (sorry you cant smell from your pc monitor..this is a pity) Using black leather is a risk, since if its cheap its visible at first "touch", well we have seen hundreds of black leathers here in Tuscany when we visit tanneries, and we can assure you that you will not find any other black of this quality around...
