What strap are you using for the Q?

Recommended Posts

How long the strap is ? It's comfortable to let it lean on the chest ? Thank you.

I just updated my article with a few new straps I have been using on the Leica Q (bottom of the article)

There's a link to their website http://www.sunlows.com and I think you will have to mail them to find out if they have a dealer in Germany. Else Turkey isn't that far away for shipping. They shipped mine to the US.

I haven't use Luigi's enough yet to give my opinion, but I hope to have one up soon along with some pictures.

I pre-purchased (another) Lance Strap - I have loved the neck strap on my X100s.  This time I went for the wrist strap, but I'm not sure if I won't also put a neck strap on it because I like having it on me when it's not in hand.

 

 

I had a flimsy little cord attachment/wrist strap as in this picture on my Fuji 100S....don't ask what happened when that thin cord broke over a concrete floor.

Yeah!  This would've been my first wrist strap, but I already contacted the maker to swap for the lug type...

Those string connectors are fine for smaller light weight cameras but Leica cameras tend to be more dense and heavy and I would not trust one.  Further, a sharp object or someone with a razor blade can remove it from you in an instant.

I use a BlackRapid Cross Shot in black. I hang my Nikon DSLR on my right side and my Q on the left. The Q's strap is set long enough so it goes into the inside left pocket of my vest.

 

Out of the way and unseen. If I go out with the Q solo, I have it at my right hip. Strap is super secure and stays out of the way. Also makes the camera a bit more stealth like than a chest strap.

 

I have a wrist strap, but if it is going to be with me all day, the shoulder strap is more comfy imho.

Are you still happy with the strap? Or is anyone with this strap still happy?  I am leaning towards this strap (black) with a little longer length. Thank you.

Yes, I'm still happy with it. Personally I love the length, but the color has faded a bit.

I use a Tap and Dye Legacy strap for my Q.  I originally spec'd a lenght of 50" which turned out to be too long.  I emailed the company about sending back for re-work and got an immediate response from the president of Tap and Dye saying 'no problem'  Shortened by 6 inches, waiting for it to come back.  Right now using the Leica strap which actually works fine.

Kmak, how are you finding the Hard Graft strap? I'm collecting my Q on Saturday and was eyeing it up just the other day as I'm a fan of using a wrist strap.
