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.....

I'm going to try to avert my eyes...otherwise I might be tempted.:wink: I do like that little ladybug, especially. Oops, I mean ladybird!

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???

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 :blush:

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 :wink:

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. :2thumbs:

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.
