Sponsor shout out: Gordy's Camera strap sling variety

A Gordy sling screwed into the tripod mount on my R2m while leaning seductively against a M3.

Nice beefy strap, doesn't look like it will wear or break.

I couldn't figure if one would fit my Rolleiflex T.

John, you could fit a regular strap on a T by introducing D-rings into the existing slots (i've done that on my T)......but I recently got an old Rolleiflex strap and am planning to send the end clips to Harry Benz & have him make me a new strap ....like this but a simpler version. He could make you exactly whatever you're dreaming of....

Love The Brogue... if only he would personalize it with the camera owner's name in place of his logo!

Great fan of Gordy's straps here!

Black and red for my Bessa !



Now one is with the M10 and with the Nikon FM2T...
In the past I also used one for my Rolleiflex...

used to use the gordys wrist straps a lot but found them to wear my lugs on my M2 pretty bad. No fault of the strap, just carrying any M by one lug is going to eat away at the brass lugs a lot faster than normal.

I have a tripod socket and eyelet strap for LTM cameras that I used for a bit too.

I like the gordys, but I prefer my domke's more. Still great straps and anyone who's looking for that style strap I'll definitely recommend.
