Beautiful but functional camera straps should accompany your equally beautiful mirrorless camera. It only makes sense to adorn a beautiful Leica rangefinder or Olympus OMD with something that makes it that much more attractive. But even though the strap ups the eye-candy level of the package, you’ll need to ensure that they’re functional for you and your purposes.

Besides, a distinguishing strap shows that you carry yourself as a photographer with a bit more class than others.

Here are five of our favorite gorgeous camera straps along with quotes from our reviews.

TAP and DYE LEGACY Shoulder Strap

“We have to commend Tap and Dye for their efforts in improving their straps. Our biggest complaints were getting the strap onto the camera and the comfort level–but the latter is pretty much totally fixed now. And though we will probably always complain about getting the strap onto the camera, it provides some security that you really can’t get from anyone else in the industry at the moment–and the company deserves a round of praise for this.

Despite all of this, you’re paying quite a price for this strap, but the reassurance that it will last an extremely long time is pretty darn comfy, and its tank-like build will make it all worth it.”

“We don’t really have much of anything bad to say about the Cub and Co Shooter Camera Strap. It is comfortable, practical, and flexible for most work. Plus, we really took a liking to the padding after a while for both wrist use and shoulder/neck use. It’s beautiful, and the only thing that we would recommend is a matching half case. If you’re an X Pro 1 user, we can’t recommend any other strap.”

“The Great State Classic Skinny camera strap is a beautiful offering for a pretty darned good price. They’re well-made, pretty comfortable, durable as heck, and most importantly, they’re minimal. You’re not going to regret the purchase.”

Cecilia 2.5cm Leather Shoulder Strap

“The Cecilia leather neck strap is a very fair looking accessory, yet low-key accessory for your mirrorless camera. It does not have all the shiny bells and whistles like a Tap and Dye strap or an accessory from Holdfast Gear, but it also noticeably less expensive at $68. It’s also one of the few small straps you can expect to stand up to the weight of an ungainly amount of camera equipment.

I had a few handling quibbles with the strap between the round soft leather bumpers and the inflexible neck pad. However, these are both negligible issues that can be resolved with a bit of time and wear.”

Figosa Adjustable Leather Vintage Camera Strap

Chris Gampat The Phoblographer Figosa Vintage Leather Adjustable Strap (4 of 10)ISO 1001-200 sec at f - 4.0

“Figosa’s adjustable vintage leather strap is an improvement on their previous versions–which weren’t adjustable at all. As long as you’re not constantly needing to adjust your strap, Figosa’s offering is an affordable option that still looks great. On a personal note though, we’re more partial to the black and darker colors.

In the end, you surely get what you pay for.”
