Chic Finds | iMo Camera Straps

My Nikon D5500 DSLR camera is my baby and I take it everywhere with me. I actually often choose to carry my backpack versus a small purse, so it is easier for me to bring my camera with me. Since my camera is practically an accessory to me, I decided to swap out my kit Nikon strap with iMo camera straps

Owner Bo-bo is an avid photo enthusiast, but found there was a gap in the market for comfortable yet stylish camera straps. She decided to take matters into her own hands and developed a neoprene backed strap for ultimate comfort with fun patterned fabric on the top. I personally love the use of the brown leather ends and the addition of the quick release to the webbing. 

I got two straps, the bright orange and cream coloured "Ahh" camera strap. I am not too sure why it is called that, but regardless, the orange is vibrant and beautiful. It is really fun and I love how it adds to my outfits. 

The second strap is the "Navy Rainy Drops" camera strap which is a little more conservative, yet gives a professional look. The fabric is really high quality and the navy blue is stunning in person. To me, this strap is reminiscent of a men's silk tie and I really love that aspect the pattern. Definitely a great strap for professional wedding photographers because it really is a classy camera strap and would go perfectly with a suit! The brown leather ends are a beautiful rich brown and perfectly go with the fabric. 

As I have a Nikon DSLR which is considered a larger camera, I was able to get the neoprene straps which have a 1.7cm width webbing. The webbing is the portion of the strap that you thread through the metal D-rings on your camera. If you have a smaller mirrorless camera, the neoprene straps may be too wide for you. 

The quick release buckles are great as I do not have to go through the arduous process of removing and re-fastening the strap to your camera. I also happen to be a huge paranoid individual and always feel that I have threaded the webbing incorrectly to my camera, so the buckles give me a little more piece of mind. I like using my tripod with the horizontal position to take birds eye shots, but the camera strap can be really annoying and get in the way. With the buckles, I am now able to remove the straps quickly. Also, you can join the two buckle ends for a shorter wrist strap.
