CASES FOR LEICA R
 
Dear visitors of this page(s), let me finally introduce "officially" my very special SS Tripod "flush" SCREW, the one that some (few) buyers of my cases already knows... Sincerily, I am quite proud of this my idea ! Unlike Leica cases screws, and, as far as I know, unlike ALL cases screws, this special "Luigi's" screw still leaves the case bottom perfectly flat, without the uncomfortable protrusion on the bottom, that prevents the case (and the camera) to rest firmly even on the most flat surfaces - His design permit to easily operate it with any thin coins, and in the lower part there is the useful TRIPOD hole, with the smaller thread, the one actually used by ALL makers.

It is quite costly, Eur 60 each (fitted), because: 1. every screw is hand made with a lathe - 2. the screw is all made in solid stainless steel, of which I am a fanatic user, being me a "boat's man"... - 3. to fit well it is a not easy job, it takes a lot of time and care, and there is always the risk to ruine a NEW case
 
ATTENTION
: the "Bottom SCREW" is not fitted in our cases by default
It will be fitted ONLY upon a clear request, and a payment for it

Here, my proposal for an (half) case for your Leica R9-R8 fitted with the DMR
(we have a new DMR items available, boxed, warranty, all papers, ask...)


Of course, I will make upon buyer's request the two proper round cutouts on the
front side, for the possible setting of the existing front controls...


Please, look at the new pictures below (April 2006). Them are showing the DMR case either in
"Aged Brown", and in black. The black one comes with the command cutouts in rear, and in front sides.

Y
our Leica R9-R8 fitted with the DMR will have a serious and practical "dress"
that allows to operate all the necessary technical buttons, wheel, and screens.
Please, inspect carefully my pictures of it, and understand how difficult is this case.
You may have it in black, or natural (tan) brown. Other colours upon request.
Euro 250
without strap. The optional (identic leather) "deluxe" strap is offered at Euro 60

TWO R9-R8 MODELS - We still have ready for sale the two half cases for your
Leica R8 and R9 reflex cameras: a "STANDARD R8-R9" half case for the camera
and lens, only, and the "WINDER R8-R9" half case, that accomodate the
camera with a R8-R9
WINDER
(and a lens) fitted (NOT the motor )
3 NEW PICTURES below (2017) in MY Natural Aged Brown...

I try to keep this case color always ready to ship, case Eur 200, Deluxe strap Eur 60


here a new, special "edges" finish in RED, made upon request at Eur 20 extra...
I will offer this special finish also to other cases models, of course



The rear cutout is made ONLY upon buyer's request, at NO extra charge.
However, I consider it not so necessary... It's up to you

R8-9brown-reddishbottom.jpg (92703 byte) R8-9brown-reddishsdr.jpg (87926 byte)
Those are eight pictures of the STANDARD R8-R9 half case. Please trust me,
it has been a very hard work to make it (them), being the R8-R9
cameras shape
NOT symmetrical, really a difficult job
Euro 180 without strap (that is an optional, and cost Euro 60 extra)

R8-9brown-naturalbrownFrontMot.jpg (93908 byte) R8-9brown-naturalbrownRearMot.jpg (78212 byte)

This is the WINDER R8-R9 half case, recently pictured, where you may put
your R8-R9 camera with a WINDER (NOT a motor) fitted on it.
Euro 200 without strap (that is an optional, and cost Euro 60 extra)

Attention: only upon buyer's request, if you want to fit a tripod...


...for an extra Eur 60 amount, I could add a MY special Stainless Steel "flush" Tripod screw that leaves the bottom side still flat (unlike on ALL leica cases), allowing to fit the tripod to it. Here two (poor) pictures os this technical solution. My special screw may be operated with the use of a coin...
Upon a possible buyer request, and confirmed order, in about 15 working days I can make
and ship the FULL case for R8-R9, either in black or brown finish, and also (in some
more days...) in any of our other 12 available finishes ! Strap NOT included,  Eur 400
as always, my Deluxe strap is an optional at Eur 60

A small item that represents one of the "secrets" of many professional photographers...
A new very special product MADE and offered by Luigi
Please, look attentively... I am introducing the NEW two "soft shutter releases"
buttons for Leica and other cameras, 16 mm diameter for your finger's comfort.
For Bessas I am making them smaller - I know, several are offered around.
But, those two models are made in SOLID STAINLESS STEEL
TWO models: "Concave" and "Convex" - Euro 20 each, choose yours
I suggest you to purchase it/them along with a case, avoiding to pay the shipping
cost for the soft release, alone - I already placed one in EACH of my own cameras...


ATTENTION: for my "how to purchase" INFO page, please click HERE

However, I can't guarantee the paint duration... (NOW quite strong )

I thought to post a feedback of a kind buyer, about this item(s)

Positive feedback rating   Wonderful service. Soft release is well made. You won't believe the difference!
