Leica Q3 Half Case


Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I read earlier threads about the internal plastic base of the Leica slim case damaging the finish of the Q3 base and was wondering if this was just a bad batch or an actual case design flaw? Does anyone have a Leica slim case where the plastic at the base isn’t exposed and is covered with leather?

Yes, my green half case has a small piece of leather attached inside the case so that the Q3 doesn't touch the plastic base of the case.

I guess you've already seen my posts on the other thread so it would be good if other owners could comment.

Do you find that taking the camera in and out of the case with a leather interior also wears on the camera finish? I say that because there is no access to the flash card from the base of the case from what I understand.

The base of the half case (metal)Leica caused scratches Side  on the memory card case and I added thick self-adhesive felt on the base.

Bad point for Leica!

Thanks for this. I ordered an open box black Leica half case from B&H for $200 last night. I will see if the plastic on the inside is covered or not. Easy to return otherwise.

Do you find that the felt repair significantly affects how high the camera sits inside the case?

I’m not sure I like the fact that there is no protection at all on the usb port side of the Q with the Oberworth case.

I have the Oberwerth half case and actually like the fact that it doesn't block the port cover, as access to the card slot on the bottom is blocked if you are using a tripod screw in the base. I've not detected any risk to the port cover so far from it being not covered by the half case.

Just received my Leica case from B&H (used but "like new" for $200) and the company has clearly made changes to the prevent damage to the base of the camera by adding leather to the internal base. Also, unlike earlier reports of not being able to tilt the rear display with the case on, I have no problem doing that too.

Je viens de recevoir mon étui Leica de B&H (utilisé mais "comme neuf" pour 200 $) et la société a clairement apporté des modifications pour prévenir les dommages à la base de l'appareil photo en ajoutant du cuir à la base interne. De plus, contrairement aux rapports précédents selon lesquels je ne suis pas en mesure d'incliner l'écran arrière avec le boîtier allumé, je n'ai aucun problème à le faire non plus.

Be careful, it's exactly the same as mine that scratched my case. It's the metal part on the left that scratches. That's why I added the self-adhesive felt!
