Camera Strap

The Humble Strap: From Shoelace to Salvation – By Tim Snow

The epitome of simplicity; it’s a strap. It attaches to your camera to help you suspend it from your shoulder or neck to keep your hands free to drink tea. To help avoid accidental drops. To help express yourself and your style.

Camera straps can range from highly refined designs using the best leathers and brass money can buy to being literal shoelaces. Seriously.

Punk rockers with studded camera straps, old journalists with 15 rolls of film held by elastic to the strap, seatbelt style straps…I’ve seen them all!

Peak Design Slide Lite, Field Pouch, Leash and Cuff – A System Review

For the last month or so with varying levels of commitment I’ve been using a Peak Designs Field Pouch with (and sometimes without) a Peak Design Slide Lite strap.

Cordweaver/Peak Design Strap Review

A few weeks ago I was mooching about on Instagram, and came across a brand of camera strap by the name of Cordweaver.
