When a your order will be placed, it would help A LOT if you'll sent more that
one color option, please ! In fact, with so many models, fittings, and colors, it
is really impossible to have all in stock, then with more possible options, I will
be able to may ship your items in a shorter time, avoiding disappointing delays !

The good news: very probably, thanks to a well qualified websites engineer,
(seem that) in a few MONTHS the Leicatime site will become finally "modern",
allowing the buyers to complete their purchases with a couple of clicks, just
filling
(for leather's goods) the proper "online form" !  :-) - Please, be patient a little more !

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.

Along with the special SS Tripod screw, in this picture you may see the HAND STITCHING !
(...a nearly lost art...)

 

It is quite costly, Euro 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 !

Of course, the SS screw position in the cases for M8 is the proper one...
 
ATTENTION
: the "Bottom SCREW" is not fitted in our cases by default
It will be fitted ONLY upon a clear request, and a related payment for it. !

CASES FOR LEICA M8-M9

..if you are interested to the M-Mate2, please ask, or read
his page, clicking there:
Please, read carefully this short warning :
Three or four (only) of the many buyers of my cases for Leica M8, wrote me
believing that the rear LCD/commands cutout of their exact case was made
wrongly, slightly too low, because the upper edge of the LCD protrusion was
still a little covered (2-3 millimeters) by the leather. Well, it is NOT a mistake !
It is exactly MY DESIGN for this case, made for several good reasons that I
prefer to don't reveal. The COPIERS around, not understanding that, may
supply a larger rear cutout. I don't want to make a different rear cutout.
And, the leather doesn't covers, almost at all, any image portion !
 
Please, read with some patience this whole LONG page, there are so many options !

Euro 180
for the HALF case, with rear cutout and rear door, either removable or hanging

I make the half case for M9-M8, in the "grip" shape, in TWO models, which prices are the same, Euro 200 without strap:
1- Half case for M9-M8 with a MY "built-in-grip", that can NOT fit the Leica M9-M8 grip
2- Half case for M9-M8 "for" the Leica M9-M8 grip, then the owner NEEDS the Leica grip !


Finally, after YEARS of researches, I found a quite cute GRAY leather
for my Premium line cases ! A darker gray (as in the picture above)
and a more clear gray.

Euro 200 for the half with my Built-in-grip, with rear cutout and rear door, removable or hanging (suggested)
Euro 200 for the half "for Leica M9-M8 grip", with rear cutout and rear door, removable or hanging (suggested)
Suggested fast Fedex Priority shipping, Euro 25 to EU or USA. Euro 32 elsewhere

Please, look at this newky posted pictures: a my special Military Green
half case for M9-M8, with "built-in-grip", NO rear flap (option available upon request).
shown with the according Deluxe strap and the according, useful Battery-SD cards carrier

Export Prices: half case Euro 200, Deluxe strap Euro 60, Battery-SD card carrier Euro 40, SS Concave Euro 20

Hanging door (my preferred), detachable door, or NO door, same prices...

Please, look attentively (below)at this my LATEST, special leather
finish: the "Natural Aged Brown", recently obtained ONLY
with a long, patient, exquisitely done hand work !

It cost Euro 20 more, then for M9-M8: Euro 200 the Standard half case,
Euro 220
the (pictured) "Built-in-Grip" model, and the
OPTIONAL Deluxe strap is offered at Euro 70 if alone, or at
the same "normal" price of Euro 60 if ordered with a case
Suggested fast Fedex Priority shipping, Euro 25 to EU or USA. Euro 32 elsewhere


THE LESS KNOWN (BUT AVAILABLE !) half case  made "for Leica grip", Euro 200 too...

Some (very few) of the kind buyers, after received theyr cases for the Leica M8/M8-2,
wrote me asking WHY the rear, upper leather's strip is slightly covering the upper

All my M9-M8 and M8-2 cases are made in that way, being it a MY design
choice !  (Let the several copiers around do a different design...)

A NEW LESS EXPENSIVE CASE FOR M8 !
Dear visitors of this pages, let me introduce (February 2008) my new "Basic"
half cases models for your Leica M8 ! Of course, I prefer and suggest the
"Premium" line ones, but, for whom wants to save, here a very affordable
half case solution, made with the same design of the more costly former one.
 
Differences between the "Premium" and the "Basic" line cases are:
 
1- The use of different leathers, less costly, but still of a good quality, NOT poisonus !
2- The Basic cases are NOT hand stitched along the bottom side perimeter, a long job
3- The Basic cases are lined with a less costly inner suede leather, also fine quality
4
- The Basic line cases are made and offered with a limited colour choice, for now
 
The five pictures there below are showing the black and the Talc brown "pebbled"
Le cinque foto qui sotto mostrano il nero ed il Talc brown "granuloso"

Prices are: Euro 90 for the Basic half case for M8, hanging flap, any of the 4 colour finishes
Euro 110 for the Basic half case for M8, hanging flap, with MY "built-in-grip", any finish
Euro 25 for the Basic strap, 95 cm fixed lenght, with protectors, but NO shoulder pad
Euro 14 for the Basic Wrist strap,
 
instead...  invece...


ATTENTION: for my "how to purchase" INFO page, please click HERE !
 
The four pictures there below are showing the black and the hot whisky "smooth"
 
Le quattro foto qui sotto mostrano il nero ed il colore whisky "liscio"

le differenze tra la linea premium e la basic sono:
 
1- L'uso di materiali diversi, ma sempre buoni, per l'esterno
2- Le basic NON sono cucite a mano lungo il perimetro del fondo
3- Le basic hanno una fodera scamosciata meno costosa, ma buona
4- Le basic NON vengono offerte in una ampia gamma di colori

- Mezza borsa Basic per Leica M8, nera o "hot whisky", Euro 90
- Mezza borsa Basic per M8, con la mia "grip", stessi colori, Euro 110
- Cinghia per detta, Basic, no spallaccio, lunghezza fissa, Euro 25
- Cinghietta da polso Basic, per detta, Euro 14

Le pelli sono 4 tipi:
 
1- Nero granuloso ("pebbled", in Inglese)
2- Nero liscio (smooth)
3- How whisky, un marrone rossastro liscio
4- Marrone granuloso ("Talc brown, pebbled")


M-Mate™ - quick (SD Memory Card) loading for the Leica M8

Introductory price: To order, click here or email to: webmaster@leicatime.com

US$ 210 for abroad the EU (VAT exempt) - Euro 150 for the EU... (Euro 180 VAT included)

    Shipping costs, with a MY special insurance :
Euro 15 worldwide by Registered Air Mail (slow, 10 to 20+ days, with recipient's signature)
Euro 25
worldwide by Fast Fedex Priority, (but Australia, Russia and a few other countries, more costly)

Actually available only in black (special, durable paint) finish, well matching the Leica black one

NOW I AM ALSO OFFERING A CUTTED, USEABLE CASE FOR THEM, as well,
I offer also to may modify most of the existing half cases ! (But, not from outside the EU...)

When Leica designed the M8, many of the traditional features of the original Leica film camera were retained, including loading film by first removing the bottom cover (“baseplate.”) To insert a memory card into the Leica M8, one must similarly completely remove the baseplate. Some reviewers called this ‘eccentric.’ Others called it ‘awkward.’



While the design decision is open to debate, there is no doubt that changing SD cards on the M8 takes more effort, and creates a bit of a juggling act as compared to swapping cards on other digital cameras. 

Not so with the M-Mate! Swapping memory cards is now a snap.

Please... LOOK at my SPECIAL CASE FOR M8 + M-Mate1 !
 
Only Euro 20 extra for the special work...

(but, Euro 30 in order to modify a your existing case...)




As well, available since time ago, the special slot
for the useful accessory "ThumbsUp" model 1 or 3
...
Also for it, Euro 20 extra, made only upon request

Let me explain: often I make some cases "hard to sell", just for the satisfaction to offer

The Deluxe strap is not included, it cost Euro 65 apart, if required, as well other accessories...

and when opened them are hanging from the case. With strap, Euro 190

Here, my proposal for an (half) case for your Leica R9-R8 fitted with the DMR !


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.

Your 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 280
without strap. The optional (identic leather) "deluxe" strap is offered at
Euro 60


Do you want this case with the two front cutout, too ? Just ask, please.
Do you hate the (so practical...) VELCRO ? OK, ask for it made with snaps !

The last case we made for the Leica R9-R8 fitted with the Digital Modul R
A FULL CASE, which front "nose" may be also longer that the one you see in those pictures

Bad pictures, fastly made with a flash ! But, I was in hurry to ship it to the patient buyer...
Of course, the front Nose may be detached, leaving HALF case...
Made only upon a firm, paid for order, in about 20 making days, Euro 540,+Euro 60 for deluxe strap

Upon request of a very good and friendly our customer, (a lady), I made two prototypes of a completely NEW, FULL case for Leica Digilux 2. I am sincerily quite satisfied of the result, then I decided to start his normal production. It is not too large, it is protective, and... In a few days I will have it available even with two delicious, useful "accessory cases": an inner "pocket case" for TWO Secure Digital extra cards (with the one into the camera, them are THREE !), and an extra case for the D2 hood and his cap, that will be easily fitted to the strap, as Leica, Rollei and other manifacturers where offering in the past times !  Prices are: Euro 320 for the complete case, black or brown, Euro 60 for the optional strap, Euro 10 for the cards case. (Price of the hood case,
Euro 60...)
Suggested fast Fedex OR EMS shipping, Euro 25 (half case), Euro 32 (full case)  to EU or USA. Euro 32 (half case), Euro 38 (full case) elsewhere

HERE MY HALF CASE MADE FOR LEICA DIGILUX 2, AND PANASONIC LUMIX LC1 !
 
 

LET ME SHOW THE former SUGGESTION OF CUTOUT FOR THE LCD SCREEN...
But, it is not so necessary, in my opinion ! Do you "feel" the leather quality ?

 

Finally, my (half) case for Leica Digilux 2 and Panasonic Lumix LC1 is ready !
Please,  click on  thumbnails to enlarge the pictures. The case, made with my usual, best quality leathers, cost
Euro 200, + Euro 60 for the optional, identic "deluxe" strap. A cutout for LCD can be made upon buyer's request. Also only the ROUND one, smaller that the LCD screen, but still enough for a certain  picture's quality control. The following pictures are all made to the last three prototypes of this "difficult" (to be made) case. I prefer and suggest ONLY the right-side cut, allowing to use all the settings (the covered one may be pushed throught the leather, I will add proper engravings). The LCD screen is of course not visible in  this case, but remember that in the electronic finder you may BETTER see any picture. However, for whom WANTS to see the LCD screen I can make the rectangular checking cutout, but it is  made ONLY upon a specific, clear request, and if requested, I will add FOR FREE a crystal clear transparent, soft special PVC product that, "pushed" on your camera LCD screen, will protect it from any scratches. NOTE that all prices of my cases are in EUR. 
 

Your Digilux 2 case in gorgeous BLACK finish...
 

you may see it in the BROWN leather, and the new operating cutout
 

... in FOREST GREEN, and new, in the FOX colour, or even a wonderful (costly) Green CROCO !

or, in a delicious (costly) also genuine, breeded BROWN croco !
 
ATTENTION: for my "how to purchase" INFO page, please click HERE !
 

NOW, A FULL SIZE LCD SCREEN CUTOUT IS AVAILABLE, but I
don't suggest it. Making it, the upper side leather would remain
quite thin, and the case become LESS protective for the screen.


Look carefully at those pictures, that are showing several different cutout
options, and shapes. Any suggestions (and request) will be accepted !  :-)
 


Euro 200, + Euro 60 for the optional, identic "deluxe" strap
However, this is my final case design, and suggestion.
A round or rectangular "LCD" cutout will be made upon request.
Suggested fast Fedex Priority shipping, Euro 25 to EU or USA. Euro 32 elsewhere
