My camera has become an extension of myself. I swear, I feel like it is my third arm. It seems like I am toting around my camera more than my purse these days. I have been on the search for a worthy camera strap for a long, long time but I hadn’t found one until I stumbled onto the Fotostrap! The one I am showing you today is in the shade Orchid and I have the Fancy Font Initial Monogram on the shoulder pad. The lavender orchid shade was inspired by this year’s Pantone color of the year, Radiant Orchid, so it is highly fashionable and on trend right now!
I love the strap MOSTLY because of the length and durability of the 100% genuine leather and canvas fabric. The specifications on the strap are: Total adjustable length: 46.5″ to 49.5″, Length of decorative portion of the strap: 32.5″, Width of camera strap:1.5″, Width of attachment strap that fits into camera body: 7/16″, Shoulder pad: 8″L x 2.5″W! It is longer than most other straps and I like that because I find that I like to use it as a cross-body sling. It tucks the camera away from whatever I am working with and helps prevent damage to the lens.
The ergonomic shoulder pad with non slip padding is really pretty and comfortable on the arm. I love the stitch detail! The padding on the bottom side feels sort of rubbery and it makes sure that once you get the strap situated to your liking it wont slip or slide off! Another fine attention to detail is the brass hardware that allows the strap to hold up to 40 lbs! I am not quite sure why that would be necessary for me but those photographers that have the CRAZY big lenses would definitely need a strap that supports that weight.
With every purchase, Fotostrap donates 10% to Fotolanthropy, a non profit that captures and shares inspiring true stories of people that have overcome adversity through photography and film. I always love knowing that a company as awesome as Fotostrap also gives back! I wish more brands did, honestly.
I am completely in love with this Fotostrap camera strap. It has a stylishly-classic feel to it and makes my camera feel more like an accessory than a tool. I have been using it for a couple weeks now and I can’t imagine NOT having it! I am really getting into photography a lot more lately and I spend half of my day playing with lighting and shooting product photos styled 100 different ways. I think that this strap has really assisted me in becoming a better photographer.
