I didn’t bring a strap with me for the E-P1 on our two week Colorado trip. That meant I either:
(a) carried the camera handheld
(b) kept the camera in my backpack, a Lowepro CompuDaypack (<$40 new on eBay) which has a quick access compartment for the camera
(c) kept the camera in a pocket of my cargo shorts (not many DSLR like cameras can fit in a pocket!)
All three worked fairly well, but I want to find a camera strap that will help me secure the camera but not interfere with any of the previously mentioned options. Some straps are too bulky or obtrusive, often getting in the way more than helping.
So I’ve been researching a good camera strap for my Olympus E-P1. I looked throughout Colorado and didn’t find anything satisfactory. So right now I have my own homebrew solution in mind. However, here are some interesting strap and hook resources I found while researching online:
The “Y strap”
STRAP – I believe this has been around long before the “Y strap”
“Swiss made” Le hook
Where to buy, option 1: Russell’s For Men | Swiss Made le Hook
