If you’re in the market for a new camera, chances are you’re not focusing too much attention on picking a strap. For the veteran photog looking to add some style to his kit, though, New York-based startup A7 offers a line of all-leather straps that’s hard to pass up.
Handcrafted in the United States, A7 straps (starting at $65) have a distinct vintage appeal that makes them look like they were designed with older analog cameras in mind. Of course, they’ll also go great on your state-of-the-art DSLR, and if you’re still rocking that stock nylon chord that came packaged with your kit, A7’s products will be a significant step up in both quality and aesthetics.
Of course, it’s still just a strap at the end of the day, and you sure as hell don’t need a piece of handmade leather hanging around your neck to take good pictures. But if you want one, these are the way to go. Check them out at the A7 shop.
