Preface from an earlier post on this strap:
An odd tradition I have has to do with camera straps. For digital cameras, it is those little Peak connector dealies that I am sure have a proper name, but I do not feel like Googling it right now. Once I decide I am going to keep a camera long term on they go. Once a camera is dead to me off they go.
For film cameras it is not so clear cut. I will often not attach any manner of camera strap, but once I do it is a little more serious. If I go ahead and purchase a strap specifically for a camera la-di-dah we have ourselves a keeper for sure.
…I figure it is time to make an honest camera of the G1 and purchase a proper strap. There are plenty of great brands. Last time around with Contax G I went with a Gordy wrist strap. A fantastic strap and I highly recommend it. But this time I was looking for something different. A chord strap perhaps. Coordinated even.
The f8 is a lovely strap.
There it is ladies and gentlemen. The exact strap that I was thinking of. Ordered it right away, but this time in black, and arrived today. (Packaging pictures from last go around below. Same set up this time.)
I will give it to Fab. They had a bit of flair to the presentation with the bag, bit of string, signed note, leather camera protector rings, and all.
Went on just fine as one would expect and looks quite spiffy I must say.
Once again, I think Mr. Witherspoon would have approved.
Furthermore the strap feels quite well made and I expect it to last. Will mention again that I appreciate the leather protector rings. Ordered it to fast to notice that they came with and I very much appreciate them being included. Looks the business and protects the camera body from the rings.
I chose the shortest strap since last time so it would be easier to wrap the strap around my wrist and handhold the camera without worrying about catching the strap on things like doorknobs. Worked as well as I expected, but this time I wanted more length so I could manage the head and shoulder through the strap maneuver and swing the camera behind me if I wanted to so I chose the middle length. So far so good.
Great looking and quality build for a reasonable sum.
Another great addition to a great camera. I close with a few more product shots.
