My girlfriend, Emily, and I received our camera strap from TAP & DYE that we ordered last week. This camera strap is their L E G A C Y fixed neck strap, which comes in either Black & Natural, Antique Tan, or Dark Amber color. Also, this strap comes in different lengths– mine is Black & Natural in 44″, while Emily got Dark Amber in 38″ for her new X100. See hers!
It came along with a custom pouch. Very nice presentation in my opinion. My first impression as I took the camera strap out was how nice the leather felt. Considering it was still brand new, it was rather stiff, which also made it nearly impossible to get on the camera! Emily and I probably spent 40 minutes trying to get it on…But once I got mine on, I couldn’t help but admire the vintage feel and look of the strap on the X-Pro 1, and it was the same with the the X100 I gave to Emily.
In terms of accessories, I’ve pretty much completed my X-Pro 1 with this strap. Considering the quality of this strap, it runs “cheap” at under $100 shipped compared to other high quality leather straps (e.g. luigi, artisan & artist, etc.). I’m happy with this purchase and I couldn’t have made a more successful purchase if it wasn’t for the help of Justin over at TAP & DYE.
