    Hippie strap for TLR

    Hello!
    the question for TLR lovers.
    Does anyone by chance know where could i get a strap like this: http://flickr.com/photos/scape/3723908526/sizes/o/?
    the point is i need belt fastenings, not metal ones (rings).
    on ebay so far i've seen only metal fastenings like this:


    but those don't suite to my autocord or rolleiflex i'm going to buy.
    and of course i want the hippie colors)))

    I've got one very similar to that, a tad wider though I think, and more of an orange colour. It lives happily on my Yashica Lynx :P

    Looks like a guitar strap.

    I used to have straps like that - back in the 70's. I'd send you one but they all wore out and are gone. In the photo, her socks clash with the strap - typical hippie.
    And Tony, my first one was a guitar strap - worked fine.

    Holy freakin' 60's Batman! I think I finally threw out the last strap I had laying around just a couple of weeks ago. Find aa nice strap that you really like, and get creative with how to fasten it. I'm sure a clever person such as yourself can cobble something together.

    I get mine from garage sales. Sometimes I'm forced to buy the camera its attached to! Most of them, though, have the sort of fasteners shown in your illustration. Perhaps your local camera store could get you the correct fitting, and you could find a way to mate the parts? When I got my Rolleiflex, I just happened to have a suitable strap down in the junk basket.

    I had a couple of those years ago. They never lasted long. They always fell apart.
