I can't wait until these two lovely pretties are here and on my camera
Nice. Of course you will post a photo of it when it's set up, correct?
There are those amongst us that will be interested to see it.....
Photos will be up as soon as they get here,
What a tease.... Sheeeeesh
I'm going to try to avert my eyes...otherwise I might be tempted. I do like that little ladybug, especially. Oops, I mean ladybird!
Ordered them from here, not a bad price!
Hey that's exactly what I bought....well I got the silver "Bug" and the black A&A strap. Can I just say, you are going to be very very very happy! Mainline are top guys too!
awesome! Glad you had a good experience with them. It's my first time ordering online with these guys. Just need to get the leather case sometime and would like the hood as well
Do the soft release things work on any camera or are they particular to one type? Not that I'm eyeing them up or anything...
They only fit the cameras with a thread in the shutter button as they have to screw in. Unless you cut off the screw bit and glue it on I guess???
Thanks for that link, Kerri, I'd never heard of these guys before.
Oooooh sounds a bit dangerous for me. I guess I could try it out first with blu-tack and if I like it get the superglue out.
Yeah they not really made for something without a thread :-(
And I had to constrain myself Sue! You know me! Lol
Had a couple of folks PM me about the A&A strap and the match Technical (Thumbs Up) bug. Here's what they look like on my X100. Tacky? I don't know, but I do know she's mine and I'm looking at her with a father's eye
Bug soft release - gives you a little more control and makes your shooting SO much more comfortable. Though I've not mastered the trigger technique to save a stop or two on camera shake.
A&A strap - the adjustable version is great, easy and quick on-the-fly adjustment for around the neck and across the shoulder....and no straggly bits (which I hate from other straps!). Also not only super-comfortable around the neck or shoulder but wrapped around the wrist....good for someone like me who couldn't decide between a neck and wrist strap. Two for the price of one
They are here!!!!! Got here this morning
Great service from the shop and a free awesome quality micro fibre cloth too
Love these two accessories and will be dealing with these guys again in the future
Needless to say, here are the photos!!!
Sweet. Oh very very sweeeeet! :clap2:
Love the reds. So how comfortable is the strap?...and have you spot the difference with the soft release? Love mine both.
Yeah, the Mainline guys are great. I have a few of the microfibre cloths now, like all their stuff even the freebies are top quality. Then again they only deal with the top-end of the camera market. If you're ever looking for used stuff then check them out. Oh how I have been tempted by their Leica stuff and other film cameras.
I was in the showroom on Monday. Cost me 2k including 2xA&A straps. Was nearly 8k. Thankfully I don't have that kind of credit anymore.
Sounds like you walked away with a little more than a few A&A straps - and complimentary lens cloths....pray do tell.
I like the strap so far and have noticed a hell of a difference with the soft release already!
And they do look awfully cool! Hehehehe.
