The "Always Wear a Camera" Calfskin Camera Strap Model "Magnum" for the Leica SL, Leica S, Hasselblad X1D and Hasselblad cameras
By Thorsten Overgaard
I like many camera straps, and I have quite a few. But then sometimes I want something made just for me. That's how I made a few camera straps that you can now also get. We started with the Leica M and the Leica Q, and finally we found a simple design for the Leica SL/Leica S. A beautiful, black calfskin camera strap that comes in two lengths, 125 cm and 145 cm (both adjustable 9cm in length), and with handpainted orange edge, made of 3mm soft calfskin leather.

The Leica S and the Leica SL models have a strap lug that requires a quite different strap design, and generally they tend to become complicated and bulky. My goal is always simplicity and simply a strap that holds the camera. We now found a way to make just that. If you like simplicity made in extreme quality that you can feel whenever you tought this strap, it's the right one for you.

I like simple things
A strap of exquisite quality, soft and discrete. A metal ring in each end to connect to the camera strap lug. The exact right length to have across the chest. Doesn't stick to the shoulders, doesn't slide too easily. With a handpainted orange edging to make it special, and a silver stampled "ALWAYS WEAR A CAMERA" that whispers to you in the morning. That's all.
No metal or plastic adjustment rings, no fancy stuff added. No adjustment is needed for a strap that was made the right way.
