    Classic/Vintage Camera Straps

    Goodday,

    Although my newly acquired Olympus OM came with the original rubber? strap, I am looking for a new camera strap. Something classic or vintage or old school, whatever you want to call it.
    I found a few sites that offer these straps, but I didnt come across any I really liked.

    Ebay
    http://camerastrapstore.com/
    http://www.camerastrapworld.com/came...-camera-strap/

    Looking for something woven or canvas.
    So does anyone know another good shop/website that sell these straps?

    My local camera shop has a box of second hand straps from cameras they have taken in part-exchange that you can buy for what ever you choose to offer. Worth asking your local shop if they can do the same.

    None of these straps look "classic or vintage" to me and I've been a photographer for more than fifty years.

    I second this. I recently purchased one of his tripod straps. Very pleased with it. Seems to have numerous camera strap options as well.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    I always thought those "Hippie" woven straps from the 60's and 70's looked cool. Been tempted to pick one up for my Rollei.

    Those often started out as guitar straps.

    They more often than not show up *with* a camera. It's like buying the camera for the lens. I've acquired a number of these old straps via the cameras they came with, but there's very little market for the straps on their own at a price worth the effort. Try selling one for $20 on eBay and see how many years it sits there. Most of the DSLR crowd wants to wear the strap that came with the camera because, well, it tells everyone they're shooting a Canon 5D Mark II for heaven's sake. That alone is proof of their photography acumen
    In life you only get one great dog, one great car, and one great woman. Pet the dog. Drive the car. Make love to the woman. Don't mix them up.

    I like black cameras and plain black straps that don't draw attention to me.
