Further increasing its catalog of quality optics and accessories, MINOX USA has been named the exclusive distributor for Artisan&Artist Camera bags, according to Thorsten Kortemeier, executive chairman of MINOX. It includes Leica M Series half-cases and a variety of straps.
Imported from Japan, A&A bags pride themselves as being discreet and fashionable without being flashy -- nothing on the outside to let the curious know a valuable camera lies inside. They become an essential part of your camera gear in the field.
Modest on the outside, yet inside lie all the tools needed to provide quick access and maintain rugged protection for prized cameras and lenses. The lining of A&A bags is a soft-combed cotton, which is gentle on all camera gear. Outside, there is a range of choices - including supple leather, ballistic nylon and watertight canvas - to keep the valuable contents safe and dry.
Photographers looking for the best result will not settle for the second best material. A&A has the knowledge, skills and experience to determine which materials to use in order to produce the best camera accessories: the finest leather from Tuscany; exquisite silk and rugged canvas from Japan.
Removable interior dividers use a system of Velcro fasteners and nylon straps with tough buckles, so each bag can be customized to the owner's specific needs. A&A bags use only top-quality materials, with the best double-stitching, the most hardy straps and buckles attached so every one may last a lifetime, even with frequent use.
"MINOX is proud of this new association with a company that shares our dedication to delivering high-quality products," Kortemeier said.
