Ya you're not going to break that strap! :shock:
here ya go. my ultimate favorite camera of all time (as is - no meter)!!!!
I learned the neck strap technique from a pro fashion photographer that I met while hiking the Inca Trail in Peru. She had a pretty badass camera (can't remember it though) and was not going to lose it. I had heard many stories of straps being cut and cameras taken before anyone knew what was going on, this strap prevents that.
It is made of from aircraft cable (same as a clothes line) available at any hardware store (I got it Canadian Tire here in the north) for about 30 cents a foot. It is coated with plastic so it is very smooth and actually quite comfortable around my neck. And that is where it is going to stay. No one's getting my Maxxum 7 unless they are up for quite a fight...
P.S. If anyone reads POP Photo, I wrote a letter to them about this strap as it pertained tothe article Herb Keppler had about camera straps. Who knows if it will get printed though.
I'm a one-camera-guy so I don't have any I've taken personally. My baby, you could almost say I sold my sanity for it...
I love my Hassy too :love:
