    Smile Anyone using Silk straps?

    They (artisan& artit) appear to look very nice except for their prices. Do they suit Sony cams? Are they comfortable? Any user recommendations?

    TIA!

    Hi there Vivek,
    I had a silver/white one to my chrome M9-P (you know what happened to that) and I found it very pleasing.
    Still, it could do perhaps with a protective leather disc around the lugs, but I didn't notice any wear on the body.
    I think it's pricey but a great asset.
    Obviously, I have no experience using one with the Sony cams.
    For both my A7R2 and EM1 I'm currently using a DeadCameras leather wrist strap.
    Mind you, it comes optionally with a red dot ...

    Kind regards.
    Bart ...

    I used one on my RX1R and A7r. I like them because they do not tangle and twist like some straps do and the silk is also comfortable on the neck. The Street Strap is sort of a knock-off, but also nice and less expensive.

    Carl, What is made of? Nylon, Cotton or Silk?

    I don't own one but I've handled them. It's nylon.

    Thanks, Tom.

    I am looking at a Chinese knock off that is cotton. I would prefer that or the original silk.
