Camera straps that are functional and stylish
As a group, photographers aren’t exactly known for being fashion forward. Gear is designed to be practical, not pretty. As a shooter who cringes at the mention of photo vests, I always appreciate when a company takes style and practicality into consideration when designing a product. IMO, from Hong Kong, is one of those companies.
IMO made their US debut this week at Photo Plus with a large selection of camera straps and tablet holders and a small selection of camera bags. The neoprene and jacquard straps both run for $29 and come in a variety of prints and and patterns. Many of the designs on IMO’s straps reminded me of the slowly deteriorating vintage strap that is attached to the hand-me-down Canon AE-1 that I learned to shoot on.
The Neoprene and Jacquard straps feature a quick release buckle that according to the website can support up to 90 lbs. The neoprene provides a nice amount of squishy support if you are hanging your gear off your shoulder.
Tablet sleeves cost $30 and the two DSLR bags they currently offer are $220.

Words of wisdom from a guy who knows your camera better than you do

For more than a decade, he has been a camera technician for Canon working with their Canon Professional Services program. He travels to some of the biggest events in the world like the World Cup and the Super Bowl to provide technical assistance to CPS members.
