Terrific looking leather case. May I ask where you got it?
Same question here: where did you get it from?

Thanks! I got it from eBay, seller: eBay My World - tomakorea which I presume the TOMA brand seller! Shipping was a long wait ~2wks but it arrived safe and sound.

I have received, and installed, the Gordy's strap for the Q and I soon realized that I should have NOT ordered the tripod screw/fastener because it is very big and it does make the camera look sort of weird.
I emailed Gordy's and ask whether this could be modified to adapt a BlackRapid-type of fastener instead.
I will not attempt to modify it myself for fear of ruining the Gordy's tripod screw, so I will wait and see what can be done about it.

Here are a couple of pictures of the setup and of the possible fasteners which would certainly look better.

It reminds me of this. Hope you get it sorted out.

I wanted a super-strong/thief resistant strap for wandering the streets of India and selected the Lance strap.

That looks like a hangman's snare or something.

I have a shameful secret. I really like using $1.00 Nintendo Wii wrist straps on small cameras. They are fully adjustable and work really, really well.

Link.

I thought about going that route, great price.
But went with the smaller Op/Tech wrist strap instead.
Detaches easily, comfortable, and it's made in the USA.
I have the larger ones on my K01 and K5.

For smaller cameras I like the Olympus adjustable wrist straps. I buy one for all of my small cameras (like the Q).

You will like it, great lens on the Q. I picked one up in a bundle that has a broken aperture. Close in it has a very narrow depth of field.
