I have often struggled to find the perfect camera strap to fit all my wants and needs. From a functional standpoint, many straps available in the market come in lengths too short to be worn cross body, my preferred method of wearing. I’ve also had mixed luck finding a strap with attachments that match my cameras. I also prefer a thin, flexible strap, as they’re more comfortable to wear for me. On top of that, any strap I wear needs to be durable because I pretty much always have my camera on me and I need to be able to trust that strap.
From a superficial standpoint, I like my gear to have a matching aesthetic, often adding a bit of color to standard gear. Or, as another photographer friend says, “a bit of whimsy!” My personal go-to color is red. Having lacked luck in finding a strap that matches all my personal requirements, I started making my own, tweaking my design as I went. Made of soft, durable, full-grain leather, I’ve come up with something that fits the bill for me: the ErickPHOTO Camera Strap. I offer multiple colors and lengths so I can hopefully fill your needs too!
- Camera Shoulder Strap (Shorter Neck Strap Optional)
- Full Grain Leather with fine Stitching and Metal Hardware
- Length 40 to 50 inch (made to order)
- Weight Limit 3 kg (6.6 lbs)
- Very Soft Feel and Durable
The strap is soft to the touch and durable, made with full grain leather and is available in different colors to match your personal style. It is designed to be used as a cross body shoulder strap for your Leica camera or Sony, Nikon and other mirror-less camera systems that don’t exceed 6.6 lbs. I’ve even used it on my Hasselblad 500CM.
The strap is made in the USA by hand, please allow 5 business days to manufacture plus shipping time. We typically have black and red straps already made, those normally ship within 2 business days.
If you are ready to order, send me an email or go to eBay and ensure you write your color selection and lenght in the PayPal Payment message. If you fail to specify what size you need, it will default to 50 inches and will send a random color. My favorite is the red, just FYI 😀
The standard strap has one buckle, for more security and peace of mind I can also add a second buckle. Just let me know what you prefer.
