NEWS: RETO Releases KODAK Multi-Purpose Camera Strap With Quick-Detach System

By Molly Kate

RETO Production Ltd has brought us a new camera strap, a thick, stylish, multi-coloured, fashionable accessory for holding our beloved cameras secure while out and about. The KODAK Multi-Purpose Camera Strap is designed with a “QD” or Quick Detach system that allows cameras to be released easily at speed.

The camera strap is intended for multiple ways of wearing including as a neck strap or a crossbody strap. It has an adjustable length from 83 cm to 145 cm and is 2.5cm in width. The maximum load capacity is rated for 88 lbs or 40kg.

RETO has even included attachments for phones in addition to cameras, making versatility a focus in the product design. A shorter Velcro strap which is part of the larger strap can be removed and used for smaller accessories.

Metal swivels are key to the Quick-Detach system. These are made from aerospace-grade aluminium and milled using high-precision CNC. This ensures every strap connector is created accurately. The strap also uses UHMWPE rope which has a high strength-to-weight ratio and allows for a little bit of stretching.

Six colours are available for the KODAK Multi-Purpose Camera Strap including olive, silver, burgundy, purple, black, and khaki. In the box, RETO provides the strap adjuster, o-ring, QD snaplock, phone hook adapter, and a phone strap card.

I was reassured that there seems to be an unlock button that needs to be pressed to operate the quick release - I think I'd want to know that it wouldn't deploy too easily. I'm not keen on the (velcro) attachment for the webbing under the ring - that seems like a weak spot (unless they have an extra safeguard that isn't shown in the video). Price is a bit nosebleed...

I am sure the QR button is on the top of the cylinder. This type of connector, if made well, is very secure. Really Right Stuff's plates often have a hole to accept this kind of connector, and they sell a strap for this purpose on their site. This connector is also used on rifle straps. I use one to heft a D850 with a long lens, with the connector (RRS strap) attached to the lens foot plate. No issues at all. This strap seems gimmicky, and I agree with an earlier comment that it too much metal in proximity to the camera. Kodak's effort is appreciated though.

It can possibly work well. But it looks like a lot of metal very close to the camera...
