Instant Deployment Case - Cool!


Recommended Posts

My instant deployment device is no case. Only case I have is and old old Benser that is useful occasionally when traveling.

This is just MY opinion, but that is not pretty and kinda bulky. I don't even see how it would work unless you like to walk around with your arms behind your back like in the photo, or bowed like you were challenged to a duel at sunset.

Luigi made me a M case like this... I opted for the shoulder strap as I don't have the hips for your version

Cool case I wonder what that would look like for M and Noctilux...?

 

Luigi will make it to your exact size request.. I had mine made to hold my M8 & 50mm Lux... Had him add a belt loop slot on the back and a couple slots on the inside to hold a couple extra SD Cards... But I find I only keep the camera in it when I pack it in the suitcase... When I walk about it turns into a holder for a pair of lenses and the camera is strapped over my chest for "Instant deployment"...

I'd really love such pouch/bag, but pairing my M9 with a summilux 50mm, it's just going to be too thick..

 

I have no problems using my Fogg Flute with my M9 and a 50mm Lux ASPH attached.

Lord that's ugly.

 

From the original blog article...

 

"The best bit is that no one has any idea what the case is and what might be inside it. I’m not one of those M9 owners who wants everyone to know I have one. I am much happier if no one has a clue. I bought my M9 to take pictures , not to draw attention to myself."

 

So while the camera is in the case no one knows you have an M9. What happens when you decide to take a photograph?

 

Secondly, I have a funny feeling that wearing something like that might just draw attention to yourself despite what you hope for in the last sentence.

Ahemm. I still find my technique the fastest with any lens attached.

 

It was inspired by the 'Western gunfighters" in old movies. They had to get the shot in, or die.

A side point.

The Leica rangefinder rides best, IMHO, vertically. The CL had a strap attachment that allowed this and also kept the bottom plate attached to the rest of the camera when changing film, etc. But the M9 straps allow only for a horizontal carry.

Leica used to, I believe, make an old clip that would screw into the tripod hole so that you could attach the camera to a belt. It would then hang vertically, again, which IMHO is a better attitude than horizontally.

You could not do this with a digital camera b/c the clip would likely mar the back screen, or at least get in its way.

All the belt stuff, however, is a bit too much to me. I would love a way to hang the camera vertically, however. It is more discrete and anatomically friendly.

I will reserve comments on the style merits, or lack thereof, of the original post.
