In June 2008, I start to design wrist strap to match my cases. My first attempt was a brown leather braided strap with string cord.
At the same time, I made a thin leather corded strap. It’s simpler and lighter than the braided version. I decided to work on this direction.
These were the formal wrist straps I made later.
Red tan color version
The black version, I call it “Coachwhip wrist strap”.
I released updated Coachwhip wrist strap in June 2009. Compare to the older version, the new strap has a small leather pad to protect the camera body from being scratched by the metal ring. The leather ring slides to reduce the strap opening which makes much comfortable and secure to hang the camera on wrist.
再添几张更早些时候用50mm Summilux v.2 拍的片子。我个人认为第二代版本的Summilux是性价比最高的莱卡快速标准镜头，全开光圈和Noctilux做对比也毫不逊色，较小的体积更适合平时携带使用。在特定的情况下出现的漩涡焦外虚化令照片很具有感染力。
See what’s in my mail box today.
It’s a Canon P body I bought from Antti who live in Sweden. The camera arrived within a week. Very well packed. I mounted a Leica 50mm Summicron on the body immediately. It’s such a nice old Japanese range finder camera. It works smoothly as it should.
Addition to that, I also received a wrist strap weeks ago from Gordy. It’s a black leather strap with red wrapping cord. I like it very much. It makes a perfect match with my Alpa 11el. It will be even better if I ordered a longer version. This one is a bit short.
