Camera Straps Made in USA

Details

Stowed Safely, to Shooting Freely

Go from having your camera securely cinched up, for easy mobility — to slung low, for unhindered portrait and landscape shooting — just by pulling the F1’s adjustment tab.

Instead of tacking-on over-engineered hardware, it’s made from the same strong, flexible, lightweight fabric as the strap — plus a simple yet secure sliplok that won’t budge under load, no matter how heavy your camera.

One Strap That’s Up for Anything

To be clear, the F1 functions beautifully as a neck strap, but it’s much more versatile than that.

Quickly lengthen the F1 to use as a cross-body/sling strap, or loop the webbing through the D-rings to make a wrist strap — all without carrying (or remembering to carry) extra stuff.

We’ve heard tales of photographers literally tying their F1’s onto things, and attaching the D-rings or adjustment tab to carabiners for peace-of-mind. Use your imagination — F1 can take it!

Light, Strong & Built Tough in USA

A lot of camera straps are stuck in the past … unnecessarily bulky, made from traditional low-tech materials and metal hardware.

We take a different approach, using materials found in modern expedition gear, where strength-to-weight ratio is critical, and exposure to the elements is a given.

If you’re looking for a faux-heirloom made of leather and steel, you’ll have to look elsewhere — because we won’t make camera straps that rust, rot or crack after a downpour (especially for today’s weather-sealed cameras).

Sleek Where it Matters Most

Not all cameras are the same, so we’ve got two optimized mounting options, reducing bulk around the hand when possible.

For cameras that require a “traditional” flat mount, we use hardware developed by aerospace engineers, for cameras being sent to … you guessed it … space. And to tidy up the loose ends, we developed a streamlined installation method.

The barely-there lug mount version (shown here) comes with our proprietary Standard Split Rings, made from a steel and magnesium alloy that’s 25% stronger than stainless steel. It’s almost like holding a naked camera — but much more secure.

Wired: Fujifilm X-T5 Review

Wired magazine has posted a wonderfully thorough review of the Fujifilm X-T5, referring to it as “…the best camera the company has ever made.” Nestled within this article, reviewer Scott Gilbertson reveals his preferred camera strap: “I prefer minimal straps like the Simplr F1, but for something included with the camera, Fuji’s strap is actually […]

Flemming Bo Jensen: Live Music + Fujifilm X-T5

In this official Fujifilm video, Flemming Bo Jensen, concert photographer extraordinaire, discusses how the X-T5 helps him capture the spirit and excitement of live music — while photographing Copenhagen-based singer/producer Saveus. “A camera is a tool for me. It needs to function purely on muscle memory, and become invisible.” Flemming is a long-time Simplr product abuser […]

Bert Stephani: Fujifilm X-T5

In this video, Bert Stephani discusses his love of portraiture, and shares his thoughts on the new Fujifilm X-T5. Bert has numerous Simplr straps, but the one seen attached to his X-T5 is a castor gray F1. *It’s worth noting that our recommendation for an X-T5 would generally be a lug mount F1 — but Bert is tall […]

How-To

Convert Your F1 to a Wrist Strap

Quickly changing your F1 camera strap from a long sling-style strap to a traditional-length neck strap needs no explanation — but converting it to a wrist strap is less obvious. Watch this video to see how easy it is! Shorten the strap all the way. Loop it through the D-rings. There is no step 3. […]

Install a Lug Mount F1 Series Strap, or Split Rings

*If you’re just installing Simplr Split Rings, not an F1 camera strap, you can skip straight to 1:07 in this video. Mounting a camera strap with split rings is just like putting a key on a keychain — but instead of a key, it’s a camera. Situate your Lug Mount F1 or F1ultralight so the […]

Install a Flat Mount F1

The flat mount version of our F1 camera strap installs similarly to a “traditional” camera strap, with a significant difference — the sliplok and keeper are used only for installation, not to adjust the length of the camera strap. Situate your F1 so the adjustment tab is in front of your body when the camera strap […]

  1. An ideal lightweight strap

    EP

    I keep the camera most of the time in my backpack and take the camera out only whenever I need it. I do not plan to carry it on my shoulder or neck for excess amounts of time. Therefore, I needed a lightweight strap which does not restrict the usage of the camera. This strap fills the need perfectly. It folds very nicely, almost disappears. Hence, it does not come to your face when framing the shot nor does take up excess space in the camera bag.

  2. As advertised

    Andrew

    Exactly, what it says. A simple, clean, and comfortable camera strap. I’ve bought three of them and have them on all my main cameras (a DSLR, SLR and a TLR), works great on each

  3. Less is More

    BenCS

    Using this to carry a Leica-M camera with different prime lenses. The Leica’s design is ultra-minimal, and so is the design of this strap. I love the aesthetic. But also: super comfortable. And also: wow, it really is versatile. I spent 8 hours walking around doing photography, and at different times of day and situations, I actually switched from body-strap to neck-strap to wrist-strap. It was awesomely convenient. Awesome product.

  5. Only camera strap you’ll need

    Anthony

    I love the versatility and durability of this strap! A minimalistic approach that suits my needs! I would’ve never guessed the two small rings could handle so much! The aesthetic matches the overall look I wanted for my x pro 3. Absolutely love this camera strap. Will likely need 2 more for my other fuji cameras

  6. Great Quality and Even Better Customer service

    Josh

    Great quality product, and even better interaction with the customer service rep who helped me choose the strap size. A+ business.

  7. Brianna

    So far so good! Although I haven’t had a chance to use the strap ‘in the field’ so to say, from what I can tell it’s exactly what I was looking for in a camera strap ◡̈ The only thing, as others have mentioned, are the rings you have to use to install the strap itself.. they’re difficult to work with and it did take me a little bit of time doing and re-doing it to get the strap on the camera the way I wanted. Besides that I’m happy with my purchase!

  8. A camera strap that works!

    Tom G

    For such a simple camera accessory, finding a good camera strap can be an impossible task! I have multiple F1s and F1 ultralights, and they just work! Light weight, comfortable, secure, high quality hardware. No unneeded bells and whistles. Even though it is permanently attached to the camera, the thinner straps keep it out of the way. The pull tab quickly and easily change length and the option to run the strap through the buckle to create a wrist strap are great when you need to change your shooting style. Not a lot of bulk to strap so easily packs into camera bag or pocket. All together an very well thought out strap.

    Impossible to fault, a fabulous quality strap that is both light and strong.

  10. DT

    Hands down, the most comfortable neck/sling strap I’ve used. Extremely lightweight but feels sturdy and evenly distributes the weight across my neck or shoulders. The tapered strap by the lugs keeps it out of the way when pulling up to my eye, an issue I’ve had with the PD anchors and straps.

    That said, I’d say the ability to convert to a wrist strap is a bit of a gimmick – it doesn’t feel secure and the mass of d rings causes it to feel very clunky. You’d be better off doing the normal “wrap around your wrist” method if your intention is to use it as a wrist strap.
