    Just some quick pics of the Hirano half-case on my GF1. I'm posting these because another member wanted to have a closer look at what the case is like.

    Thanks Paul. Am I correct that that is not the recessed tripod mount? Looks very nicely made and I like it in brown, too. Perhaps this will be the "new" classic?

    No problem. The bottom screw accepts a small tripod:

    I wonder if Hirano would like to be an MU-43 affiliate?:wink:

    Very handy little tripod, too!

    Nice

    I do like the look of this but I went for the Panasonic ever ready case as it provides full cover for the GF1 +20mm lens, fits in my coat pocket and I can still unclip the front and have the half case on the camera.

    It seems these just don't exist for the Olympus, at least they don't seem to be easily available over here in the USA. I would ideally love to have one with a front cover that came off with a snap...like my old OM-1 case.
