Pentax LX meets Minolta XD7

So I got fed up of the ridiculous optech strap ends on my LX, and decided to do womething about it. Enter my old XD7 (scrap) – my what lovely strap lugs you have!

A large amount of wrestling with wire cutter pliers to unscrew the Pentax fittings from the body, and a good glug of Epoxy resin later and the Pentax can now take normal straps, that don’t get in the way when shooting!

It;s very much a non reversible process, but considering my LX is not far away from scrap itself, I’d say it was worth it.
