Modifying leica case
Anyone modified their Leica ever ready type case so that the strap lugs stick out of it? I would like to do this so that I could attach the camera strap to the cam from the outside of the case like you can with the Luigi and Zhou cases. This feels safer as id be relying on strap attached to metal lug on the camera rather than an old leather strap attached to an old leather case.
I did consider getting one of the Luigi/Zhou etc cases but that's just spending more money (also the Luigi cases are crazy expensive too) and more importantly, the Leica case feels pretty rigid and hard and like it would offer better protection in a drop than a soft supple leather case (Luigi/Zhou) would and that is more important to me.
I have one of these cases where the lugs stay inside the case like attached. I guess I’d have to break off the loops that attach the leather strap to the case then make some kind of holes or slits. Anyone done anything like this?
