    What kind do you want? Just about any camera strap will work with it.

    I have a Yashica branded skinny strap. Not sure if it is originally from a 124G or one of the rangefinders but it is in good shape. PM me if you want it/want photos.

    When asked, you'll probably tell them it's the first digital prototype of Canon, made in 1978??

    My Yashica TLR's strap says Nikon D300, My rolleiflex's has a bright shiny D600 strap.

    It's been said many times, that most camera straps from camera manufacturers
    do a better job of advertising their brand name, then actually being a good camera strap.

    For comfort, durable utility and value...it's hard to beat an 'OP/Tech' strap.

    OP/Tech, Classic Strap, (adequate for your Mat-G):

    OP/Tech, Pro Strap, for heavier/heaviest of cameras:

    Maybe I should have been more clear. I am looking to find a original Yashicia TLR leather camera strap. Thanks to those who provided web links. I really liked the straps at jodiescamerastraps.com

    I think I may have what you are looking for .I purchased a 124G from Mark Hama and he sent a strap with it , I believe it has Yashica imprinted on the inside of the strap through out the length , LEt me get home and I will see if I can find it

    Good luck finding the original, I know I have seen them around...But I do second the Optech strap as a great second choice. I use them on a couple of my cameras, including an RB67, and love them. They do a pretty good job of distributing the load of some of the heavier cameras out there.

    That's the one I'm currently using on a Canon EF :confused: (I know I should be ashamed). At least its's a good strong bit of webbing.

    I think that the original strap on my 124G is one of those miscellaneous plasticky / vinyl things. Doesn't really look like leather. Who knows when it will give out.
    I''d better replace it with a web strap ASAP.

    At that site I find abundant information on the decorative side.
    But what is the underside made of?

    Thanks again for all the replies. I did purchase a new strap at the new camera store in town.
