The brand new hand built Speed2 Sling camera straps have gone live!  After a long, successful life, the original Speed straps have made way for the newly designed, adjustable version.   Based on feedback and conversation, I redesigned the Speed sling to incorporate a spring loaded cam buckle which locks the strap in place and is adjustable from 16" to 29" in length, and is designed to wear over one shoulder and across your body like a messenger bag. Available in a rainbow of colors, the Speed2 is ready to rock now!  If you act fast, you can find a...

We are excited, and proud to announce two new camera straps!  The Genoa is a 3/4" wide flat shoulder strap with a tubular construction that allows better weight distribution than a standard flat strap.  It won't cut into your neck and shoulders and provides a strong, light weight strap with a nice, contemporary look.   The Tommy wrist strap is a completely new design, using a new Bavarian Check material spliced into a closed loop.  It is thicker than the Vector wrist strap, so it allows more weight to hang comfortably from your wrist.  The Tommy is the first Nauti...

Heather and Mat from Mirrorlessons.com have written a review on the Vector, Cascade, Speed and Regatta straps! Heather brings up the point of the Speed strap being a bit long, and non adjustable (currently working on a remedy through new design for that!) for her which didn't suit her needs or style, but really liked the Vector and Regatta straps. If you've not stumbled across Mirrorlessons.com before, I'd suggest doing so.  They're great folks, and longtime friends that I've collaborated with over on my photography review blog for years.   An honest, and appreciated review in real world terms.  Have a read...

Over the years, I've been lucky to meet and interact with many amazing photographers, reviewers, developers, manufacturers, writers and just generally cool people within the industry.  Andrea at Digital Silver Imaging (an amazing print lab that does digitally generated silver gelatin prints) is one of those people, and also runs a blog centered on the lovely Leica Monochrom camera at leicamonochrom.com I'm working on a fun review of some print and framing options from DSI for my personal photography review blog (here) and had sent Andrea a couple straps as a thank you.  He decided to write up a review...
