It’s a Snap
Standard-issue straps that come with a DSLR camera look nothing short of boring next to these creations by Couch. The Long Beach, CA-based company whips up adjustable straps for shutterbugs ($21.95 each) using recycled seatbelt material in a rainbow of colors (lots of hues you’d expect to see in an auto — industrial silver, black, maroon — but also a few where-did-that-come-from? colors like industrial orange, blue-green, and army green). Unlike narrow, traditional camera straps, they’re extra light and slide easily across your shoulder as you move your camera to take shots or check the viewfinder — a natural feature you’d expect from a company that specializes in upcycled guitar straps. Take your pick (and, ahem, a pic) at Etsy.
