    A friend and I just started HighKey Camera - and we make awesome camera straps that are much better looking than the black, drab one you're probably using right now. They're pretty awesome, and definitely add style to you and your camera!

    Check them out!! :D

    Nice idea. None of them perfectly appealed to me, but I was totally like "ooo! I need a cooler camera strap!" I wish you had some more "normal" colored ones... I know these muted earthy colors are all the rage, though.

    Very nice!

    I think I'll stick with my tougher-than-nails camera strap, thanks. ;) (I freaking love that strap; forget about trying to cut it and making off with my camera. Bwahaha.)

    You should allow people to request styles, looks very professional but i would threat to buy one,do you have any evidence of how tough the strap is?
    i wouldnt want to pay $30 then it ends up snapping thus causing my camera damage
    it looks pretty sturdy but i would like confirmation (maybe a video of you guys tugging at it and hanging it from places to show that it can bare with the weight of a camera perfectly fine)

    Not a bad start, but your designs aren't to my taste.

    I got the TPF strap, which is a fantastic strap. I don't know if they still sell them here. Then I got a Smugmug strap which is better than the OEM and was FREE. Finally, I really like the Black Rapid strap. This is great when in crowds, where you need to make yourself smaller and/or working with two cameras.

    None of my cameras sport the Nikon strap. I thought the black strap with garish Nikon Dxxx was ugly and gives clues to how much your gear is worth. Not too cool in some places.

    Criminal/Criminal-soon-to-be: "Hmm, that guy has a Nikon D90. Pretty decent 12MP camera; I could sell it for $400. Yeah, I should steal it."

    Criminal/Criminal-soon-to-be: "Hmm, that guys has a fancy camera with a big lens on it. Must be worth something."

    Which one is more likely? :lol:

    (I highly doubt that someone lacking enough subtly so that they would mug you and take your camera, knows so much about cameras that having a Nikon or Canon or w/e strap is going to make a difference.)

    Okay, how about that I think the Nikon straps are fugly and not very comfortable. :biggrin:


    Not all expensive lenses are big. Not all criminals are uninformed.
