Stop Digilux 2 strap scratches

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I have noticed that most D2s seem to have arc shaped scratches near the strap lugs, which appear to be caused by the plastic connector covers scratching against the sides when the camera is being carried. Some of the non-OEM straps available have protectors in place to stop this but I note that the Leica straps (even for the M series) do not.

 

Until my new strap arrives, I have found that a small circle of felt can be placed over the lug and the strap connected over the top to prevent such scratches. It doesn't look too bad (see attached) as a short term measure but more importantly it should prevent my camera body becoming scored like every other D2 seems to be.

 

I hope that this helps someone.

I have a few offcuts of red leather that i plan to use for a similar purpose.

 

Still waiting for my strap though. I ordered it via Jacobs and I now suspect it will not arrive.

M's all have that piece of plastic that protects them from the strap. The very first M6's did not, I had one and used blace tape on it. I finally sent it back to have them added when that became standard issue.

Hola a todos.

 

Para proteger a mi Leica Digilux 2 (Tambien lo tengo hecho en la 3) de los arañazos laterales les he pegado un protector de pantalla que tenia de sobra.

Me va de maravilla.

 

Saludos.

When I bought my Digilux 2, I cut up a generic LCD screen protector to create two patches that I fitted just above the eyelets on either side of the camera. They are almost invisible, but have kept that area of the body scratch-free.

 

Best regards,

 

Doug

      Hi, can anyone recommend any good quality straps that include the protection flaps that go over the attachment points.

      I left the M's shoulder strap in the camera box since day 1, until lately I need a camera strap for my Nikon Z that comes with a fugly strap.  I realize the Leica strap is actually a very good!!  It's very easy to put on or remove, the buckets is not touching the camera body and it's light weight.  I think I have really brain washed by seeing too many M with leather strap on the internet, so I kinda automatically went to buy a leather one without checking it out first.

      I effectively ruined my hideously expensive multifocal eyeglasses with LTM-photography (Leica II & III, FED & Zorki)

      A little too late, I started experimenting with various washers etc but found that most items increase the viewing distance and lead to incomplete viewfinder / rangefinder coverage, which is restricted enough with eyeglasses on classic LTMs anyway.
       
      There may be some professional solutions around, but I have come up with a low cost, dispensable item, which may not be perfect on aesthetic grounds, but works very well in the field for me. I did not bother with geometric perfection

      I used a 12 mm and a 6 mm punching tool respectively, and some general adhesive cloth tape from the hardware store.
