    Hi Guys,

    Any thoughts on how to repair a Voigtlander Vitomatic IIa's never-ready case?

    Due to age, the straps already came off and all I'm left with is the bottom part of the case, I wanted to place a strap unto the body instead but I realized my version didn't come with the lugs.

    Any thoughts? DIY experts? Modders?

    Thanks!

    Jurgen

    Get a strap that screws into the tripod socket. Gordy's or Stephen Schaub(?)
    Or take a wrist strap, cut it from the screw and use a very narrow belt/snakeskin for a strap.

    Hey John,

    That's the best suggestion so far, I almost forgot about the tripod mount.
