Leather Camera Straps

Leather Camera Straps

When every camera out there feels mass produced and feelin' the same, there's something fulfilling about customizing it with your own personal touch. Whether it's a technological upgrade (like adding an Eye-Fi SD card) or replacing the stock camera wrist strap with a leather one, it's the little tweaks that really make the difference. In addition to giving it a vintage-like appeal, one of the biggest pluses in having that extra grip around your wrist from having it accidentally fly onto the pavement or into a pool of water.

Quality materials are even harder to come by. We've tried eBaying a few of them and trust us, don't get the cheap ones - they break within a few weeks! Best to try some of the smaller shops like Gordy's Camera Straps or Andy's store for a custom made one to your liking. Straps start at around $20.

Got a cool mods that retro-fied your camera? Let us know about it in the comments!
