Vintage Olympus Hunter Strap (old-skool!)

  1. It seems there are lots of hi-tech new camera straps available now to replace the standard OEM neckstraps. I decided to go in the other direction.

    Too far???

    Hum... the e-p1 is 'vintage' looking enough, but I'd rather have a so-called 'hippie' neck strap myself. Just a matter of personal taste, I reckon. More groovie, would be a 'back to the swinging 60s' kind of trip.

  5. It came from eBay and cost me about AUS$20 shipped from the UK. It was perhpas a bit indulgent but when I saw one for the first time I had to have it. Of the few I've seen available not all have the original black loops to attach to the camera. Trouble is I've not sure how much I trust the 20+ year plastic in them so I am scouting for a stronger (but still cool-looking) alternative.
     
  6. Hippie strap! Sounds cool, where do I get one? :smile:

    Hey Nic, "Far out man"
     
  9. I though they might have been the 'Hippie straps' you were referring to. Psychadelic, man. Maybe I can get one of those for my Canon. For the E-P1 though I'm liking the 'vintage chic' of the Hunter Strap.


    Alan, is that the suppressed former hippie in you calling out? :smile:

    Hi Nic,

    It's former, but not too suppressed.....
     
  11. Good to hear.
     
  12. So anyway, it turns out that it is just a liitle bit itchy :eek: It's still staying, though!
