    Does anyone know if any of the leather Soviet or Ukraine eveready camera cases will fit the Bessa R camera?
    With thanks,

    Sam,
    I cut the height down about 3/4 to 1" on an old Kiev 4 case. I removed the front portion to make it a 1/2 case. It is just a little longer than my R2a, but the case/tripod hole fit perfectly. I did replace the original K4 screw with a 1/4". Seems to work fine.

    Somehow I recall that a Nikon FM/FE case will fit a Bessa R. You can find one at the bargain bin at your no longer in business camera store.
