Hand-made leather camera case for Panasonic Lumix GF-1

We are pleased to announce an addition of a Panasonic Lumix GF-1 version to our popular range of hand-made leather camera cases. The Lumix GF-1 is Panasonic’s answer to the Olympus E-P1. Unlike the Digital Pen this Lumix has a much more utilitarian feel, making it the perfect everyday camera. A quality camera case will make this plain and elegant looking camera even more presentable and also protect this valuable camera from external knocks while at the same time be smooth in the hands when using it. A detachable back cover protecting the LCD display is available as an option.

These camera cases handmade by an artisan, one by one, in the old center of Tokyo. Their quality and feel are extraordinary; “Perfume of REAL leather, high quality finish and stitching” writes one satisfied customer.

A unique feature of this case is that the strap attaches to the case, not to the camera as with most other cases. This case effectively cradles your GF-1 safely and gently, safeguarding your investment.

Please note we also carry the official Lumix GF-1 cases made by Panasonic here.

Web Shop on summer holidays

The Japan Exposures Book Shop has returned from its break and things are back to normal. Now it will be the general Web Shop’s turn to take a holiday, which will be from August 10th until September 10th. However, there is a good chance that you won’t notice much of it as we will continue operations almost as normal.

Everything will run as normal except the following, which will resume September 10th:

 
Sales of virtually all other items like films and accessories will continue as normal — which of course includes books –, so don’t restrict yourself.

In other news, Camera Hirano has informed us of a slight price increase of their hand-made leather camera cases. Effective from 1st September 2009, the price of all cases will be increased by ¥2.000. Quality does never come cheap and this is no exception. Similar to many other products in our selection, we are very happy being able to offer these precious items for sale at all. Life’s too short to compromise on quality.

Hand-made leather camera case for Olympus E-P1

We are pleased to announce an addition of a Olympus E-P1 version to our popular range of hand-made leather camera cases. The Olympus E-P1 Digital Pen is one of the most stylish digital cameras we have seen in years. A quality camera case will make it even more presentable and also protect this valuable camera from external knocks while at the same time be smooth in the hands when using it. A detachable back cover protecting the LCD display is available as an option.

These camera cases handmade by an artisan, one by one, in the old center of Tokyo. Their quality and feel are extraordinary; “Perfume of REAL leather, high quality finish and stitching” writes one satisfied customer.

A unique feature of this case is that the strap attached to the case, not to the camera as with most other cases. This case effectively cradles your E-P1 safely and gently. It deserves it.

Yes, there are cheaper cases out there, but not at this level of quality. Even Olympus’ own mass-manufactured case and strap will cost almost what this high-quality hand-made case does.
