    Luigi's leather Rollei cases

    Hey guys,
    cruising flea bay this morning, and saw Luigi's leather from Italy, featuring Rollei body cases for vintage Rollei TLR cameras. However they are very expensive. 750.00. Damn!!! I was wondering when someone was going to make custom case for these guys.

    I've heard folks rave anout his casesN but that is just rediculous. But I'm sure he appreciates you posting an ad for him.

    That is a lot but as an owner of a couple of his half cases for my Leica MP and CL I can say his workmanship and materials are absolutely top notch. I find cases awkward for the Rolleiflex TLRs and though I have some original ones for mine I use the cases only in storage and completely remove it when I use the cameras.

    I've considered going commando with Rollei, however I'm little nervous on banging my camera on things.

    Commando is the only way! To get over the nervousness there are two approaches: bang it once and get the dreaded situation behind you, or adopt a technique of constant awareness when walking with or handling the camera. I chose the latter.

    if i think it will be rough, i use the 'cord -- it was pre-banged.

    And, seriously, those cameras are pretty tough. They can handle hard use

    If your heart is set on his cases, it's usually cheaper if you order directly through his site. I do second the awkwardness of a case on a TLR.

    For $750 you can get a decent Rollei with the original case, some accessories, and have $$ left over for film.

    This is a premier quality Italian leather hand crafted luxury product, they don't come cheap, ask yourself if you had the skill to make one considering the man hours necessary to make one, how much would you sell one for ?

    I'd sell one for as steep a price as I could get. I'd certainly make one for my caseless Rollei Standard. But to pay that price for a camera case, when as I said I could get an original case with a camera inside for less, is just silly.
