Street Strap: retro style camera straps

 Street Strap camera straps


I stumbled upon the Street Strap camera straps via Facebook. Besides the fact that they look beautiful, if found the 52 inch version very interesting. As I do a lot of street photography while traveling, and always carry two cameras, a strap this of length would prevent the two from bumping together.

So I decided to give the 52 inch version a try. Pretty soon, my Street Strap arrived safely from the States in an excellent zip lock plastic bag. As the connector is made to be connected straight to the strap hole, you’ll have to remove the little triangle connector typically used to connect a traditional strap. Olympus cameras do often include a nifty tool to do this, but if you don’t have one, a small coin will come in handy to open up the ring connector.

Quality and usability

I was at first a bit worried that the round nylon woven strap would offer less support than a strap band. As long as you’re not trying to hang a heavy DSLR around your neck, this straps provides enough support and comfort for long photography trips without any worries.

Because the 52 inch version is a bit longer than the earlier 46 inch one, you can just leave your camera dangling on your hip, whilst (in my case) keeping your second camera rested on your chest. Works great, and my camera bumping problem is solved.

It’s worth noting that the Street Strap is a quality item, all hand-stitched with leather end-wraps to prevent fraying. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now, and I am considering getting a second 46 inch version. Highly recommended for mirror-less camera owners. Available via their website and Amazon.
