Lust List: Gordy’s Camera Straps
Considering my Sony RX100 cost about 40 times more than a garden variety point-and-shoot camera, I’d expect it to come with a quality strap. But it does not. It comes with a shoelace attached to a string.
I wanted a strap I could securely attach to the tiny ring, let hang out from my bicycle jersey pocket, and slip my hand through for easy access.
While sifting through Sony camera internet forums, I discovered Gordy’s. And I’m ecstatic I did.
Gordy’s Camera Straps are made by hand on Whidbey Island just north of Seattle by Gordy and his team. The straps themselves are built from leather with the base wrapped in wax-dipped polyester cord for strength and durability.
The loop is both functional and beautiful. The stiffness of the strap combined with the flexibility of the polyester cord makes this the perfect strap for my application. The loop is large enough for me to fit my hand through easily, and it feels safely secured even during rolling photo shoots.
Gordy also makes a great neck strap, the Zoe combination strap.
Secure your favorite camera and snap on.
