    You have to be kidding . . . $184 for a camera wrist strap? . . . Sure, it's pure silk, but come on.

    Am I missing something here?

    Actually, this strap is now on its fourth camera. It started out on an M8, followed by an X100, then an EM-5 and now on my EM-1.

    How do you mount it on your Olympus ? Do you use the original anti scratch rings ? Could you post a photo?

    I really like Gordy's straps: http://www.gordyscamerastraps.com/

    I have one each on my E-P3 and GX7.

    At less than $20 each, that leaves money to be saved for a new lens.

    You could use it that way. I tend to wrap it around my hand as I wander around.

    saw these straps before never knew they were a small company :) pretty cool and very reasonable priced just ordered one :)

    thanks for the link otherwise I would have kept thinking they were some ebay imported things folks were using !

    I don't use straps just spider setups etc.. or a magpul sling setup I use with a QD mount but for around the house and out with family wanted a nice wrist strap :)

    I have an A&A Easy Slider strap. I bought mine on Ebay for less than the extremely expensive retail price. It's a fantastic strap but not really worth what those boutique stores sell it for. Use ebay and just keep your wits about you making sure you don't get a fake.

    I did rip up my fingertips pretty badly installing it though.

    I have a very nice braided leather wrist strap, there are a lot available at pet stores.
    Choke collars for small dogs, also the cat collars work as well. All kinds even chrome and gold chains and
    Great price.

    Thank you !

    It doesn't scratch the camera in any way ? That's the original plastic anti scratch system from Olympus there, right ?

    Sure is, I just connected the strap and off I went. As for scratching, not that I’ve noticed. I can’t see it being different to any other. It’s a nice strap to walk around with for an extended period.
