As you know we work with many people and companies here at Digital Bolex to bring you higher quality products at lower prices. This has worked well with Ienso, the electronics design company, Pomfort, the software company, the Kish, the lens company, and now Tas Merah, a leather case company.
We would like to introduce you to Orlando from Tas Merah who is making a custom designed leather case for the D16. He even made his own D16 camera mock up based on our specs to test it with.
This case is real leather and will retail for $150. There will be other cases in the future from different materials, but trying to stay true to the Bolex brand we have decided to go with leather for the first case.
As he says in the video there will be a small compartment on top for lenses, and the case will of course feature Digital Bolex branding on the front and top.
We have also sourced leather wrist straps that are very very similar to the straps that were sold for Bolex cameras in the 60's.
Pictures of the strap: (The one on the left is the new strap, the one on the right is vintage.)
We have decided to include these wrist straps with all of Kickstarter cameras. I don't know if they will be included in the subsequent camera packages, but they will be in the packages for the first 100!
We are doing our best to keep with legacy quality and design for these elements.
Let us know what you think!
Thanks, Elle, Joe, and the Bolex team
