Post A Photo of Your Camera with Favorite Camera Strap

I love my Gordy's camera strap on my Canonet. Post your photo's showing off your favorite camera strap. I chose the grey because I thought it blended well with the silver & black of the camera.

A genuine 1970s embroidered strap rescued off of an unloved Pentax Spotmatic.

I could never quite find a strap that fit my idea of how a camera strap should be, so I decided to make one.

That looks like a huge leather strap on the side to me.

I'm liking this one...got one on the F3 and another on a Canon A-1...one more is made up and ready to attach but I don't know which camera it will go on...
I made this strap from a leather strap and horse tack I found at a local horse mart...

I have recently converted to Gordy wrist straps. I like the large size.

A lot of love for Gordy goodness. Anyone liking the Luigi wrist straps? I have his neck strap but it's not long enough, been thinking about getting a wrist one instead.

Make these myself, using buckles salvaged from old Nikon straps with rivets (short size) and leather from Tandy leather (they describe the strap as "saddle string, 1/2".

This is the first Gordy wrist strap I purchased. I have them on a few more of my cameras.

My favorite strap is no strap. I always carry my camera in this position along with a pocket full of film and a spare battery.

edit: that goes along with my favorite camera bag being "none". I guess that is because I never made a photo with my camera hanging from a strap or in a bag but my photo-ops typically only last for around a second or so.

That looks like a Coral snake, indigenous to my country. Tiny and deadly.

i wear my straps long so that the camera is in a similar position…my hand is always on the camera so i just have to raise my hand, camera to face and shoot.
and if i need a hand or the camera slips then the strap is there for my comfort/rescue.
