Peak Design Camera Straps – Perfect for Micro Four Thirds Cameras
I don’t like to use a camera strap while photographing with my Olympus Micro Four Thirds cameras but there are times when a camera strap is necessary. Peak Design Camera Straps make it easy to attach and remove the camera strap from your camera body.
For macro and landscape photography, a camera strap always seems to get in the way. For birds and wildlife photography, I use a Black Rapid strap that slings over my shoulder for my camera with a longer lens and I don’t want another camera strap to interfere with my photography.
I do use a camera strap for times like changing lenses, changing batteries, and going on an extended hike without stopping to photograph. Peak Design camera straps have been the solution. I can quickly attach and detach Peak Design camera straps for those situations where I need a strap.
I also tend to hang my Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III over the railing on observation decks to photograph things like waterfalls. It’s easy to snap on the Peak Design Cuff Camera Wrist Strap to secure the camera to ensure I don’t drop it over the edge.
Peak Design uses the same connectors for all their camera straps making it easy to change to different camera straps and wrist straps.
The Peak Design Leash camera strap comes with 2 extra Anchor Connectors and the Cuff Camera Wrist Strap comes with 1 extra Anchor Connector. You can also buy extra Anchor Connectors separately. I have the Peak Design Anchor Connectors attached to all my cameras.
I also found the connection between the camera strap and the Anchor Connector to be secure and I’ve had no worries about the connection coming loose.
Peak Design camera straps come in multiple colors (black, ash, midnight blue), but I prefer the black ones to match my Olympus cameras.
Peak Design camera straps are a bit pricey. But if you can use one camera strap for all your cameras and have the flexibility to easily attach and detach the straps, they are worth the price.
