New Camera Strap Designs

Posted by Simon Harrison on Monday, May 13, 2019, In : Products 
I have been experimenting with some new handmade leather camera straps recently. I have four out for field testing at the moment. Just to check that they all work as they should!
I have tried to think of something that is not common in the world of photographers and their cameras. Being Leather I know that they are stylish, and as they are made entirely by hand they are all bespoke. But I have also used some fittings from the saddlery trade. The Globetrotter shoulder strap for instance, uses a...

So just how much weight can one of my handmade leather camera straps carry?

Posted by Simon Harrison on Wednesday, April 24, 2019, In : News 
"Can your camera straps support the weight of my *insert camera model*? It weighs *insert weight*?" Is a very common question I am asked. And the answer is invariable. Yes! Yes it can!
Now as a picture is worth a thousand words I thought that I should test one.


So this is my Globetrotter camera sling supporting a 25lt water container. And yes it is full! so that is around 25kg supported quite happily.

This then made me think. What else could I hang from that strap. Hhmm! What's that in the backg...

Camera Straps - What one suits you?

Posted by Simon Harrison on Tuesday, April 2, 2019, In : Products 
A simple search of the internet will throw out a myriad of camera straps. From the standard manufacture's stock one, to custom made bespoke straps costing more than your camera!
My ethos is different. I make camera straps that are designed to do their job, with strength, and style. I use leather from JE Sedgwick. JE Sedgwick make the finest English Bridle Leather that has the strength, durability, and robustness required of a modern day camera strap.
So what strap do you need?

Do I need a Camera Strap?

Posted by Simon Harrison on Sunday, June 28, 2015, In : Products 

You have brought your new camera and decided that you want a decent strap to go with it, but wait a moment. How do you know what strap you need? If you have used cameras for years then this is not a problem, but if photography is new to you then try it first. See how you prefer to hold the camera; maybe you like to carry the camera in your hand, then a wrist strap is for you. Other people like to carry the camera across your body over your shoulder so perhaps you need a longer shoulder strap,...

Padded Camera Strap WIP

Posted by Simon Harrison on Saturday, February 28, 2015, In : New Products 
A work in progress for a padded camera neck strap. I've worked out the padded neck part but not sure what to put on the ends to connect to the camera. My thinking has been to stick with what I know and buckle a couple of small bridle cheekpieces to the ends with hook billets to connect to the camera fittings. Or should I stitch webbing straps with standard camera fittings? or something else? Any ideas?
As my photos show I haven't got a clue about cameras!
