Gordy’s Camera Strap: Love it

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.

  1. I use one of these too. I’m a big fan. At first, they seem a little stiff and inflexible, but they soften up soon enough. I actually used a bit of baseball glove oil on mine to help it soften a bit!

    I always think my X100 feels very safe and secure with the Gordy strap in place and though they’re definitely a bit bigger than ‘normal’ straps, they do feel better.

  2. Oh man, I’ve drooled over Gordy straps before! And I’m totally with you — I HATE standard camera straps. I finally started using the one for my D700 though because my husband kept telling me that using a camera with no strap was like riding a bike with no helmet — and I’m always the first to scold friends for not wearing a helmet, hah). So, it worked. But they totally get in the way. -__-
