LEICA PROTECTOR M CASE FOR M CAMERA
If you an avid Leica fan and love rangefinder style, there is an undeniable desire to protect and cherish your Leica camera. So, you decide to purchase a strap may be a new case to make sure your investment is well protected. Afterall, Leica’s unaltered approach to classic body styling since the early days of the company’s founding has resulted in a genre of cameras that defies the passage of time.
There have been many style of cases to protect Leica M type cameras but nothing really surpasses the quality and the build of original accessories. Leica M protector case provides a snug fit, nice stiching and detailing to accentuate the classic lines of Leica M camera with intelligent design that not only allows a better grip but also allows easy control of the dials and buttons to operate the camera.
A protective case does more than afford a better grip but also stop unwanted scratches, dirt and dust. Leica achieves to provide all this with their M protective case and does not compromise on the quality or style. Case features soft nappa leather that only grows more beautiful through use, resulting in a very classic beauty that have come to be associated with Leica cameras.
After using Leica M protective case for a few weeks, I have become very accustomed to the ease of gripping the camera more firmly. I, now, wonder how I used Leica M without for so long. One other quality that I admired with the casing is that I no longer had be as careful with placing my Leica M240 camera on hard surfaces. Personally, I like the look of factory paint vanishing from the edges of the camera after a few years of use which goes nicely with a leather case that also ages with use but remains as functional as the day it was placed on the camera.
If you are to purchase this durable case from Leica, you will first notice that it subtle, nothing flashy or anything that might draw unwanted attention. Secondly, you might notice the stitching and the suede like fabric that line the interior of the case. There are no blaring logos on the front or the back of the case which is a welcomed detail. There is a subtlely placed stamped Leica logo at the bottom of the case which helps you identify that this is indeed a true Leica product.
When you place your camera first time in Leica M protector case you will see that it is perfectly shaped to fit a Leica M body. There is no play at all once the case is placed on the camera which is something to watch out for cheaply made casings from the far east. Next you will see that the casing does not add much weight to the body and lens combination but merely compliments it like a scarf to a jacket on a cold winter’s day.
For obvious reasons, casing will not provide sufficient protection against drops but that is not the reason to buy this casing. Most modern DSLR type cameras come with hand grips and Leica’s M line continues to maintain its classic lines which means that a carefully crafted, subtle grip along with protection from scratches will go a long way in making your experience with your Leica M camera a more pleasant one.
Before you run off to buy your Leica case from your local store, you might one to check on Ebay, you will probably find better pricing and a deal that might leave with some extra cash to buy a filter for your favorite lens.
