    Michaelbsc -- yes, a true hippy aficianado would know about leather work -- and macrame!

    I can see it now: a macrame hemp strap, with seashells and peace symbols woven in as appropriate.

    Hey, I'm not makin' fun -- I graduated from high school in 1969 just south of San Francisco, so I was there, man! Long live KSAN....

    I did'n know the strap was hippie when I have bought that in the 70's.
    A hippie symbol with a thing that looks like a weapon...

    Aint that the truth, a similar contraption on a Zenit Photopsniper and a 300mm lens nearly got my head shot off in Belfast several years ago.

    You needed a 12 gauge, not a 300mm lens!

    I have one that I use on my FM. Came with it and it is by far the most comfortable strap I have! I was told it was bought in Mexico, but by the design on it, i think it was made in the US. I would say your best bet is to just buy a guitar strap and modify it.

    Thanks to Benjiboy for the reference to
    www.souldier.us -- I just got a strap from
    them for my SL66 and I am very happy
    with it. I usually don't engage in camera
    porn but I am attaching a photo of the
    camera (with a Petzval mounted) and
    Souldier strap. They use recycled auto
    seat belts for the webbing, and stitch
    the fabrics onto it -- very nicely done.
