Gordy’s Camera Strap: Love it

with 13 comments

Call me weird, but I pretty much never use camera straps. Whether on a photo walk or a paid gig, carrying a point and shoot or my dslr, what’s most often keeping the camera at my side is the death grip I keep on it. I don’t know what it is, but I feel like they just get in my way.

But my goodness do I love this new “Gordy Strap” I just got in the mail for my Fuji x100. It’s a highly-durable, simply-beautiful, hand-made leather strap. This wrist strap that I got is just one of the many different kinds of customizable products available at Gordy’s website. I just might need one for my dslr now. Hmmm.

Found this little gem stashed away in a box of photographic studio equipment my father gave me recently. The Ansco Cadet, apparently manufactured in the late 1950s, features a  switch on the front to move between color and black & white format film (127mm), a cool red shutter release on the front face, and ports on the side to attach a flash strobe. My sister also remembers shooting with this camera when she was growing up in the 60s.  To me, this thing is seriously cool, but I can’t get the shutter to work.   Such a shame…
