FOTOStrap Vintage Inspired Camera Straps

** 2013 Holiday Gift Guide Feature **

I have loved photos and taking pictures for as long as I can remember. I have had my own camera since I was a teen and maybe even before that! I was always taking pictures, especially of my friends. Today is no different. I have several cameras and my favorite one is my compact DSLR. I take it every time we leave the house and go some where out of the area. I don’t want to miss a great shot! Dressing up my camera with a comfortable strap seemed like a natural step as the one that came with the camera was nothing special and often felt really short on me. I am excited to share with you this beautiful strap I was asked to review for you from

FOTOstrap is known as the camera strap that gives back. They offer beautiful vintage inspired camera straps that are made in the USA with genuine leather and canvas fabrics. The FOTOstrap’s are individual works of art as they are crafted with brass hardware and a ergonomic leather shoulder pad with non slip padding. The color choices are awesome! There is something for men and women alike!Fotostrap-Sky 2

I was sent a lovely sky blue strap. The first thing I noticed while bringing it out of the nice display box was the leather smell! I love that smell! It reminded me of my horse’s harnesses. The craftsmanship on this FOTOstrap is top notch! It is nicely finished and of very high quality all around.

The strap is made longer than a regular camera strap so you you can wear it cross body, if you choose. The is great for those that use several cameras to get the right shots or if you are adjusting your set up. I love the adjustable length too. Perfect for taller or shorter people so you can get just right right comfort level. It adjusts from 46.5″ to 49.5″ by simply moving the buckles where the camera will attach. It is just like a leather belt with a brass buckle on each end of the strap.

This is a fabulous item for the photography lover in your home. I love that these can also be monogrammed with your name, initials or even business name. It would go right on the shoulder pad and look so professional too! This is truly an awesome, well made strap that will hold your larger professional style camera, comfortably with no issues at all.

Plus with every purchase, FOTO will donate 10% to Fotolanthropy, a non profit that captures and shares inspiring true stories of people that have overcome adversity through photography and film. That is a special touch. I like that.
