Well, it looks like the camera has been selected for your next ghost hunting expedition

Or maybe just for Halloween...

Very nice. I toss those hippy straps in the trash because they can really scar up a camera. I think the saving grace for yours was those extensions that are still on the camera.

As for your case, where the wear is, if you want to get all picky about it, you can use leather dye to restore its original look. I use Feibing's leather dye for dying leather and ebony wood -- great stuff.

Thanks for the suggestions. The roll-over edge seams are badly worn/frayed in places. This is normal wear, but a little worse on this case than most. Leather dye might help the appearance though.

Picked up a Super Program off ebay this week. Looks to be in great shape. Putting the first roll through it.
