I love having the camera in my hand at all times, it means I’m always ready, and I always have the camera in position at all times. However, I was recently out for a few hours, in cold weather and at the end of the session, even with gloves, my hand was just uncomfortable.
I know I wanted another Cody strap, as the quality and feel of them is just perfect. I also knew I didn’t want a typical neck strap where the camera hangs on your belly or chest, so I visited the Cordy website and realised they made custom lengths! With that I ordered the longest length available in the hope it would meet my needs.
The reasoning for the extra length was so that the camera could be left to dangle on my hip. After Christmas Day, I attached the strap, and it fitted perfectly to my hip. Now I have the best of both worlds, I can hold the camera whenever needed, but on the rare occasion I want to let it go, I can now just let it go.
Cordy straps are extremely well made. A finely braided material, that is very comfortable on the hands and neck. From the website the version I chose was approximately £20, although there are many different versions on the site.
Hopefully, this will give those looking for an alternative strap a good idea of a product that is well up to the job.
Of course, the thing about camera straps is that they are very personal. It can take ages to find the perfect device for varying your camera. These straps from Cordy though are simple, stylish, affordable and comfortable. Something that can’t be said for every camera carrying system out there. Plus they are available as quick release or fixed clasps.
