I wanted to take some time today to discuss a question I am always asked on my instagram feed. That question is....What strap is that? Well to put the subject to rest the answer is Hyperion
A while back I was looking into straps for my Fuji X Series cameras. I didn't want anything pretentious or with complicated hooks and sliders. I really didn't even want a quick release system. All I was looking for was a utilitarian style simple strap that could be worn cross carry or around the neck. Easy on easy off. Something that wouldn't get in the way when I shoot. A strap that if I so wished I could wrap a few times around my wrist while raising the camera to my face for some added security.
Well enter Hyperion Camera Straps handmade and owned by a wonderful gentleman named Pavlos. Pavlos makes these straps in an assortment of sizes, designs and materials. They are amazingly comfortable and completely customizable. Delivery is quick and I almost forgot the best part. They hardly break the bank at 15/23 Euros (Thats $17 - 26 USD).
Needless to say Im obsessed.
Not only do they check all the marks I've stated above they also look amazing on your new as well as old Vintage cameras.
As you can see below I have an assortment of Hyperion Straps, and why not at the the price they sell for. I choose the 135 length. I'm 6ft and 245lbs and this is a great cross body carry length for me.
If I got my Hyperion I'm ready for my day of shooting.
