What strap are you using for the Q?


Recommended Posts

I have done it like this. No scratching and easy swivel when I twist the strap. No tendencies to loosen.

simplest and most solid -a recipe I used for all my previous cameras. 20cm of climber's thin rope. Available in a range of colors, as climbing is fashion, and the full roll costs some €, which would allow for maybe 500 straps ;-) Weights nothing, folds into any cam package, and if there is one thing I'm sure -with this I'll never drop the cam.

The strap that comes with the Q is just about perfect. It's well made, from quality leather and looks subtle but at the same time really classy with my Q. Hello guest! Please register or sign in to view the hidden content. Hallo Gast! Du willst die Bilder sehen? Einfach registrieren oder anmelden!

A small, cheap £10 wrist strap. I have a really nice small leather wrist strap which cost about £20 on my M, but I can't find another one for the Q. All those bulky things and half-cases are horrible.

I've got a Gordy's wrist strap that I've put aside for the Leica Q.

Quality and price are amazing and I've been using one on my old Fuji for years now.

 

The Q that I bought comes with a "guitar strap style" shoulder strap with a "Leica" logo on it, but I'm not tha's an official product.

Also, I've got a guitar strap for my DSLR and don't think I want it on a small portable camera.

 

Will go through this thread and gather some impressions. :)

Simple, straight, slim and black leather is what I'm leaning towards so far.

I am sure that is exactly what Leica supplies with the camera.

The strap that came with my camera is of rather ugly lether, fixed rather long length and with rings that deforms by tension. 

I have never had Leica rings deform with normal usage. The leather is good quality and becomes more supple with use. My straps are entirely functional and are not destined for beauty competitions. The camera is more important and it is safe with a Leica strap. Personal choice.

I have been in search of half case and straps lately as well. Looked thru all related threads and posts and explored options such as ADM, Lim's and etc on Etsy, finally I settle for this setup with my Q:

Replace Leica half case protector with Lim's half case for the convenience of Tripod mount.

Stay with this op/tech wrist strap. It's very cheap and comfortable to wear,  easy on-off, you can find it on amazon.  

For shoulder strap, I decided to keep the original leather strap but added an extension plus S-biner for easy-no-off and adjustment when needed.

AdM cotton strap looks cool, but...

That's a damn expensive piece of cotton string, there.. ouch! 200$ with shipping is simply INSANE!

 

otoh, they all seem to be crazy about premium shipping...

I really like the simple Angelo Pelle strap, with neck padding and adjustable length, but paying 60€ for the strap and add another 17€ on top for the shipping. (dude, I bet you 100 bucks that you can fit the strap in an envelope and send it over for 5€!)
