    All of my guitar straps come from Get'm Get'm (though most came from Ebay - $60+ for a guitar strap's a little steep). They're beautiful things though.

    Just noticed they make camera straps - couture for your camera?? All I can say is, the quality of their guitar stuff is first class. Take a gander (though on eBay you might find discontinued patterns - some of my fave guitar patterns aren't in production anymore):

    I can see one of my Hasselblads asking, "Does this strap make me look heavy?" :D

    Everyone knows a Canadian company Levy's make the best guitar straps in the business http://www.levysleathers.com/browse;cat,786;Classic-Guitar-Straps, and the Get'm Get'm camera straps are too flashy for me, I prefer plain black Domke Gripper Straps that don't attract attention.

    As pretty as my guitar straps are, I'm with Benji myself, just gimme a plain strap for my cameras. I could see these being a nice gift for someone (possibly a lady?) into fashion and shooting.

    The Levi's straps - they have some pretty nice designs, but most of theirs have that super-thick puffed-up leather thing going on, I like the soft get'm's personally.

    For my guitars, I have some really cool brocade get'm straps, each carefully chosen for a specific guitar - and yes, they mate for life!

    I'm a plain strap guy myself, but this one is calling. Don't think I'll put it on my Nikon, though. Maybe on my Holga.

    Nice straps..but damn! I dare anyone to show up at a wedding with a camera hanging off one of those :smile: Also, seems a sure way to get a street shooter to get beaten up as well. Not exactly "stealth". :smile:

    I've always been challenged when it comes to straps. Speaking of guitars, my acoustic still has a Guitar Hero strap attached - after desperate measures at a university gig.

    That... is a holga strap if ever there was one.

    A teal blue version would be tits on a Diana!

    Hmmm...."tits on a Diana". Sounds like a figure of speech. Good thing the cameras are not called Fred or something.

    Could make a good name for a band...

    The "notes" app on my iPhone is used whenever I think "hmm, good band name".

    I'm up to about 80 now, if anyone needs one. But I'm keeping Crystal Meth Gayle.
