Tanner Goods Camera Strap Review

As everyone, I have my favorite places and regions. I love Oregon and just so happens that a lot of companies I admire are based there. It’s their home, their soul, their land, and their products. Tanner Goods is a Portland based company that does some really cool everyday carry products. Their range of bags is probably one of the best looking out there. As many artistic people, the craftsmen at Tanner Goods couldn’t pass on an opportunity to make something for photographers, and about a month ago I got my hands on the camera strap they make. Chances are, …

Trillo & Son Leather Co. Bresson Sling Strap Review

I’m a little too passionate about camera straps. Most likely you found my blog from one of my previous straps reviews or giveaways. In the last 1.5 years I had the priviledge to review and test some of the best straps from all over the world and there is one more strap I want to feature today. There is a pretty cool story behind how I virtually met Hiram, the man behind Trillo & Son Leather Co. I keep checking the news about straps via hashtags and in the media, so one day I stumbled on Trillo & Son Leather …

Topo Designs: Camera Strap and Light Hip Pack Review

I’ve been a very big fan of Topo Designs and how they present the brand for quite some time now. It you want something very well designed and looking great in the outdoors, then Topo Designs is your brand.

Artisan Obscura + Tap & Dye Limited Edition Straps and Buttons

A year ago today I published my Camera Strap Review, which in one day got 3,850 visitor hits. It was and still is my biggest single day for the website. Since then I updated the review and included more companies that do quality straps. In the last year, over 20,000 people looked at that post. It all started while I was in New York, right after my rental of the Sony a7R. I was sipping hot tea and looking at Tap & Dye website. I thought those straps are pretty awesome. I was planning to buy one. What happened after …

Peak Design CapturePRO Camera Clip with PROpad Review

For someone who has used dozens of camera straps in the past year, making a transition into camera clips was a natural move. I’ve seen pretty much everything there is for straps and I was curious to get my hands on Peak Design CapturePRO camera clip. There are multiple versions of the setup and my plan was to see how secure these clips are, how much they can hold, and how comfy they can be when used on the waist or on the camera bag or backpack. I received the shipment with the CapturePRO Camera Clip ($79) with the regular size plate, …

The big camera strap review

Introduction Who would have thought that only after about 6 weeks I will be sitting at home and looking at the best handmade camera straps from all over the world. What started as a simple “Why not try and see if I can get a few straps for a review” thought turned out into possibly the largest major strap review there is. Today I have 16 fantastic straps in this review and all of it was possible thanks to the people who made these great products. The best thing about trying to reach small companies is that someone will actually …

Custom SLR gear review: Glide Strap, C-Loop, Fotopro Monopod

For many photographers having good gear is essential. The camera won’t take the photos by itself, but it can inspire to use it more and in different creative ways to capture the best shots possible. For me my gear is very important. I always want to have the best tools for my needs. A few years ago I found a company called Custom SLR when I was looking for a strap to carry my camera across my body. I generally do 2-3 hour shoots and my camera is always heavy. I want to be absolutely sure it’s secured and protected, …
