Artisan & Artist ACAM-301 Woven Silk Cord Camera Strap Review | Patrick Leong

Artisan & Artist ACAM-301 Woven Silk Cord Camera Strap Review | Patrick Leong | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


Nowadays, camera straps are a big thing in the camera world.  And why wouldn’t they be?  The world today is about personalization.  Everything we buy can be customized to our satisfaction.  Some car companies now will even paint your car any color that you would like (for a small fee, of course  ).  We now have more camera strap companies than ever before, and that is not a bad thing.  Some may say it’s a waste to “bling” your camera out but hey, it’s YOUR camera, and you can add whatever you want to it.  I remember when I first received my M3, I wanted a leather strap so badly for it.  I wanted that old school look to really resonate from my camera.  I was 12 then, and at that time, they didn’t really have any third party camera strap companies.  Now, they do, and one company that has earn the respect of many photographers is Artisan & Artist.  I spoke of Artisan & Artist straps before in my ACAm-280 Kobe Strap review, and today, I will be showing you the Artisan & Artist ACAM-301 silk cord.

Artisan & Artist ACAM-301 Woven Silk Cord Build Quality:

One of the reasons for why Artisan & Artist can command such high prices on their straps is because you really get a quality built product.  The Artisan & Artist ACAM-301 woven silk cord is no exception to this rule.  You’re first greeted with a plain, and simple black box.  When you finally take your strap out, you know you bought a quality product because you can see all of the intricate detail, and craftsmanship that goes into making this wonderful strap.  The photos of this silk cord do not do it justice; the silk cord looks absolutely awesome in person.  Seriously, this is a really nice strap…in my opinion,  a better strap than the leather ones that Artisan & Artist makes......

Review of the CSLR Glide Strap for Street Photography | Eric Kim

Review of the CSLR Glide Strap for Street Photography | Eric Kim | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

 

In my 6 years of shooting street photography, I have experimented with lots of different straps. I tried neck straps, wrist straps, hand straps, and even no straps. Finding an ideal camera strap for street photography is very difficult. You need a strap that is discrete, comfortable, yet looks good.

I was really excited when I first came upon the CSLR Glide Strap on the internet (I first heard about it through Kickstarter for their C-Loop). Their revolutionary idea at the time was why not take your camera strap off your neck (where it gets itchy and sticky) and put it over your shoulder instead? This way it could disperse more weight more evenly around your body.
