    Where do you order your photo supplies? These straps are easily available (search for "wrist strap"), but I don't know which vendors have reasonable shipping to Turkey. Here's the one stocked by B&H Photo. Keep in mind that most FEDs have 3/8" tripod sockets, so you might need a 1/4" to 3/8" adapter. They are also available very cheaply - I bought mine off eBay.

    Hello Terry ,

    I searched the google , lower the price of good , higher the shipping cost. BH sent me an Leica Mini Zoom , camera was 60 dollars and shipping was 65. Some sites offer handmade straps , way too expensive. Fed 1 costed me 45 dollars plus 30 dollars shipping from Ukraine via my sisters ebay account in France . I buy things from local market in Istanbul , that is only color negative film. I need someone from APUG to sell me a strap. If not , I will build one from handsom sailing rope like my old IIIC Leica. Fed have no lug like Leica.
