2. Camera Strap
Another product that comes highly recommended as one of the best accessories to the Leica camera, is the wide camera carrying strap. Toting around a camera when a traveler wants to be hands-free to enjoy their excursion can become difficult and a camera can be cumbersome and get in the way of the photographer’s endeavors and experiences.

3. Leica SD Card Credit Card Holder, Leather
Preserving the Pictures, How Accessories Can Help
One of the most important accessories to have is the storage space offered on an SD card for the Leica camera. Not just any storage space will suffice, a leather SD card holder will aid in keeping the fragile SD card safe and secure, and is designed like the style of a wallet’s credit card holder to gently tuck away the cherished memories captured on film on the cards.
Leica offers a credit card holder, in addition to the SD card holder, and one of the best features of the accessory is that it comes pre-made in genuine leather of either black or cognac. SD card holders are an essential accessory to have if the photographer doesn’t wish for the storage cards to become lost or damaged, and they are the best way in which to store the excess of photos and memories, to be able to convert them to other forms of media.
4. Camera Holster Systems
The last accessory that every Leica camera owner should possess is the safe and secure leather holster. The holster is designed to carry the camera close to the body for not just the protection of the camera from being damaged, but it is a great holster to ensure that the camera isn’t stolen from an unsuspecting tourist if their hands are preoccupied with other things.
The holster’s belt is rip resistant, proving that it is difficult for someone to grab it and rip it away from the body, and to ensure comfort, the holster is designed to be adjustable and lie across the body so the weight of the camera is carried across the shoulders and not just the neck.
