AFshoot as you already know have some great products, this Leather Wrist Strap by Deadcameras is yet another cracker of a product. It has graced my Leica M6 over the past 6 months before being turned over to another member to be used with her Fujifilm XE-1 for the last 6 weeks. As expected ...... fantastic.
The attention to detail is superb, brilliant stitch work and signature red pin are all a great touch for the soft leather wrist strap. I have used other wrist straps such as the 'practical' Gordy's Strap, the 'luxurious' Louigi's wrist strap and the almost forgettable 'Noose' by Crumpler. This strap by Deadcameras stands out from the group and at a price point of $66 plus postage, more than justified.
Carrying a camera around using a wrist strap can be taxing. Crazy as it seems the wrist can get fatigued if the leather is on the stiff side. I have found this the case with a fare few wrist straps I have used over the past 25 years. This strap in particular is an exception, it was great to use all day with no discomfort- subtle soft and a pleasure to handle.
It's the attention to detail which I find outstanding in this luxury wrist strap. Just like the full length counterpart we reviewed last year , their wrist strap is neatly finished off with stitch work and burnishing of the highest quality. A nice rubber wring makes width adjustments for your hand easy and visually stylish. Unlike other wrist straps (Noose by Crumpler), this has been designed by those who actually use cameras daily themselves and that listen to other photographer's critiques. The manufacturers of these great straps has left nothing to chance, every part and component works as it should and is exceptionally executed.
So without going to overboard (bit late) I love this strap and give it a massive 4/5 Thunderbird Points. There is nothing not to like ..... grab it and you will be a very happy camper I assure you.
