    Strap Options for Rolleiflex

    Hi Guys- I have a Rolleiflex Autocord Model K4B and I don't have a strap and I was wondering how I could get one without spending a lot of money.

    Try a Leica M strap -- the kind with the separate metal element that you can remove from the strap, fit to the camera, and reassemble. I hear they work well.

    My problem is that I need the strap to have the metal clips on the end to right into the Rollei....

    I got one of these Op/Tech Super Pro Straps for my Mamiya RB67, and it is really nice. Everything I've read about straps for MF cameras speak highly of these. I dont know if its too much money for a strap, but you sure dont want a nice, expensive, HEAVY camera hanging by a thread.

    I always thought that, with the myriads of Rolleiflex models and variations about, we needed a good resource describing those many different incarnations of Rolleiflex TLRs.
    We have such a resource, for instance in the shape of Rolleiclub's TLR page.

    But i think it is even harder to figure out what strap (or rather what clips) fits what camera!
    Maybe one of the resident Rolleiflex gurus can compile an illustrated guide?
    Perhaps giving alternatives (like Trask's suggestion for a Leica strap) too?

    I found a new old stock strap on ebay a few years ago for around $60 but I had been looking for a new strap since 1986 :0

    There are 4 or 5 listed here: http://www.manfredschmidt.com/rolleiaccess.html

    Gordy is your friend. I use his straps with all my cameras, wrist straps, neck straps, TLR straps even a sling strap.

    The Op/Tech straps are extremely comfortable when used with a heavy camera.
    I even attached one to the Sekonic L-398, to make it more manageable.
