Wanted: a pair of pentax leather strap protectors


Link Posted 23/03/2014 - 22:01
Has anybody got a pair of the leather protectors used to stop damage to the body of K5 & K3 cameras that they want to sell or do you know where I can get some please?
Searches on Pentax/Ricoh site and eBay was fruitless.

Photo of what I am talking about below but I don't need the metal rings.

I mean try an old glove/leather offcut and cut them out yourself.

Or get a cobbler to try for you.
Lurking is shirking.!

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, older lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

Thanks for your help everybody. I realise that they are not Pentax specific but I was looking for, shall we say, some that looked reasonably professional. I am sure that any I tried to produce would not look that good!!!

Anyway I have now found some at a more reasonable price at: http://cameramill.co.uk/shop/camera-lug-protectors/
