*Two Brand New Camera Straps from Nautistraps.com #ishootnauti

ns-2

Hi All!  I’ve been hard at work on the Nauti Straps, designing and prototyping designs over the last few months.  Two of which are now ready to ship!  Enter, the new Tommy Wrist strap, and the Genoa Shoulder strap.

The Tommy Wrist strap (find it HERE) is a brand new design, using a hand spliced, closed loop in what I’m calling Bavarian Check patterned Red/Black and Blue/Black (will be available very soon!)  with a third option of solid Black with a reflective tracer (available now!).

The Tommy is the first wrist strap to employ the stainless steel, quick release spring clasp which enables a fast switch between a wrist or shoulder strap.  This is how I tend to use my straps now, wanting to use wrist straps at times, and shoulder straps others, so adding a QR clasp on these fit the bill.

The new Genoa Shoulder strap (find it HERE) uses a 3/4″ flat strap (the Speed and Vector straps use a 1/2″ wide material), fitted with two stainless steel quick release spring clasps, hand spliced into the material with a fixed, finished length of 46″.  Able to be utilized as a traditional neck strap, or cross body sling strap, the Genoa is a strong, comfortable and light weight option for any style of photographer.

The rounded construction provides much softer edges than a standard flat shoulder strap.   The rounded design allows more weight to lay more comfortably on your neck without cutting into you.   Available now in mottled Blue/Black, Red/Black or solid Black with a reflective tracer for better visibility when roaming or riding the streets in the darker hours, the Genoa is ready to go.  

The Tommy weighs in at a mere 1 ounce and comes with a 170lb test stainless steel split ring, and rubber O ring to fit to the camera.  It will run you $35 with free shipping in the US.

The Genoa weighs 2.7 ounces, and is supplied with two 170lb test stainless steel split rings and two rubber O rings.  It comes in at $45, also with free shipping in the US.

All shipping within the US is free, and we offer a flat $10 rate for shipping to anywhere else in the world (no matter the amount of straps purchased).  If you have any photographer friends or family, we’re well stocked and ship straps as soon as we get orders, so let us know!  (the USPS says we have until December 19th to insure that deliveries (within the US) arrive in time for Christmas.  International shipping via the USPS normally takes anywhere from 7-21 days, depending on the destination.

*Goal Zero, clean, portable, endless power for a digital world.

Does that sound like a commercial pitch?  I’m sorry, I’m just trying to be creative with these articles and the idea of writing about batteries, or rechargeable, storable and portable power might not tick too many boxes for those of us looking for a humorous review on the latest, greatest camera gear.

With that said, I can’t even begin to count the times over the past few years that I’ve been frustrated by low shot volume lithium ion, camera batteries.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s amazing technology, and the lifespan on many of these batteries is so far beyond what older batteries were, but with all the power hungry features in todays cameras, combined with the ever growing desire to see these machines not only become more powerful, but smaller and lighter, power is going to be compromised.  Anyone shooting an Olympus EM5/10 or Sony alpha camera can relate, I’m sure.

Enter Goal Zero, a solution for those of us who travel, shoot in the field or enjoy having some of the creature comforts while out in the wild, wild world.  A very cool company producing some very cool products.  C’mon in to read and see more…
