Details

As the smallest fixed-lens cameras (like the Fujifilm X100 and Sony RX1R series) inherit the capabilities of their larger, interchangeable-lens brethren, so too should your camera strap — and that’s exactly what we’ve done with the F1ultralight — incorporating much of what photographers love about their F1’s.

With durable 3/4″ wide webbing and tiny-but-tough acetal hardware, the F1ultralight is strong where it counts. More importantly, it’s small where it counts — especially near your hand, where it matters most. Built with our tiny-but-mighty Standard Split Rings, exclusively for lug mount cameras — it’s as close as you can get to holding a naked camera.

F1ultralight vs. F1: The Differences

Functionally, the F1ultralight is similar to our acclaimed F1 — streamlined, easy to adjust, and plenty strong — with a couple key differences…

#1—F1ultralight is Slimmer

The F1ultralight is slimmer than the F1, by a lot. On paper, the difference between 3/4″ (19mm) and 1″ (25.4mm) wide webbing might not sound that big, but it is — and the hardware is smaller too. The sum of the F1ultralight’s parts is significantly more compact, even though the length and range of adjustment are practically the same.

With very small cameras, there’s no appreciable difference in comfort (we recommend the F1ultralight for cameras up to 1.5lb [.68kg] even though it’s fully-capable of supporting much more), but you may find an F1 more comfortable on bigger cameras (wider webbing distributes weight across a larger area).

#2—Different Conversion “Hacks”

Unlike the F1, which is converted into a wrist strap by passing the webbing through the D-rings — the F1ultralight converts to a long tether by passing the webbing through the integrated “rip cord” loop — or a short wrist strap by tying in a knot (unlike regular camera straps, it’s easy to untie).

  1. A Nail Biter...without the biting.

    Phillip

    The actual strap is great. The thickness is good and quality seems sturdy. It’s the rings that you attach the strap to the camera with, that are way too small to get on there easily. And if you use a leatherman tool (like I finally did), you permanently mess the rings up. I bought this strap on the pretense that it was easy to install and that is simply not the case.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Quite a few of our long-time customers and pro product testers have been surveyed about our new split-rings (introduced on all straps shipping August 1, 2021 onward) and found them to be really easy to install. Were you trying to install it onto a camera that wasn’t made for a lug-mount camera strap? That could explain the need for tools, and opening the rings so wide that that they were bent (they’re made from spring-tempered alloy, so that’s not easy to do). Contact us so we can figure this out with you — or just return it for a refund. We want you to be 100% satisfied.

  2. Simple, functional. Works Great!

    JGA

    I’ve been using the F1 Ultralight with my Fujifilm X-T30 for the past few weeks. I love how easy it is to handle
    the camera without excessive hardware on the strap. Easy length adjustability for over the shoulder or cross-body sling mode.
    I’m glad to have found the perfect strap for my needs.

  5. Well considered, highly functional and a perfect match for the Fujifilm X100V

    Terence Ong

    Simplr have put a lot of thought into the F1 Ultralight to incorporate seamless adjustability in a practical, minimalist design. Their attention to detail on seemingly small items such as length, width, stitching, materials, size of split rings and placement of the logo all contribute to a truly excellent strap. I’ve used the strap for nearly a month and it just gets out of the way unlike any other strap I’ve used. Very impressive and highly recommended.

  7. What I was looking for.

    Bill Gibson

    I thought I was satisfied with my Peak Design leash strap, until I put on the F1ultralight. Simplr split rings are smoother and don’t catch on the lugs, and there are no anchors to snag on either. I use the strap on a FujiFilm X100V, which it suits well. I didn’t realize how l little I needed the versatility of the Peak Design strap with the X100V specifically. It is a small fixed lens camera, and the strap fits it perfectly, without excess, as promised. The materials and construction give me confidence it will serve for the life of the camera.

  9. Perfect Strap

    Scott Streble @www.scottstreble.com

    I’ve been a Photographer since the mid-80’s and have always looked for the right strap/camera combo for each camera and this is perfect for my Fuji x100V. I love ability to switch from neck to cross body. It’s unobtrusive and the narrower strap toward the camera end doesn’t cause it to get in the way while shooting. I looked on-line for a long time before finding this. Thanks

  10. EDC Strap

    Chris Gibbs @ www.photosection.com

    A quick shout-out to Simplr about their F1ultralight strap: I wear a camera everyday, never wanting to miss a moment, currently the strap is attached to a Sony A7C mated to a Zeiss 55/1.8, so it’s of moderate weight. I’ve tried just about every strap, most are too complicated, or too bulky. I just wanted a modern version of the old manufacturers’ straps of the 80’s, something relatively lightweight, thin, supple and easily adjustable. Why adjustable? I carry the strap cross chest, and usually under a decent jacket here in Alaska, and it has to be easily swung from my left hip up to the eye, then re-stowed under the jacket. This is where the Sony factory straps fail, they’re nice and thin but, they’re made with a sticky pad sewn in and that stops them *sliding* over your shoulder. The F1ultralight is perfect in this regard, it slides freely over the shoulder and chest. Why adjustable? Many of us shoot video too, and for that, a shorter strap is often required if you use it as a neck brace viewing the LCD screen whilst pushing the camera forward as you film. Unlike some of the other straps, there is very little hardware to clatter around against the camera when filming, this is a huge plus to my mind! Great product AND the company are very responsive to your suggestions over on Instagram, that’s very refreshing in today’s day and age.

  11. Another happy X100v shooter

    Dom G in the Uk

    Having evaluated all the options, tried a couple of alternatives, this is such a good match for the Fuji x100v. It’s super neat, can make a quick improvised wrist leash for occasional use. It adjusts quickly between over the shoulder and standard neck strap. I like the size and the small attachment points that are unobtrusive when handling the camera. It’s strong secure and the texture is not too slippery, a great match. I like to buy from small independent companies wherever I can so this is an added bonus.

  14. Perfect for Fuji X100F

    Robert M Ryan

    This strap is absolutely the perfect size and weight for my Fuji X100F. It feels natural, like it was made for the camera specifically. It folds into a very compact bundle that allows me to carry the camera in a small bag with minimal bulk. I have 2 straps from Simplr – an F1 and an F1 Ultralight. I am sold on this high-quality product and will be ordering additional straps for other camera bodies.

  15. Perhaps the best strap I've used

    An amazing camera strap for mirrorless cameras. Strong, durable and understated. It doesn’t shout “Hipster” and is extremely comfortable to wear and use.

  16. Excellent!

    Ricardo Lazzari

    I purchased this product with the certainty that it would be as good as the F1 straps I purchased before, and I wasn’t disappointed. Great design and materials, lightweight and not bulky at all made it ideal for the Fuji X100V. The honest price, great construction and lack of metal parts that could scratch the camera are all important factors that make me come back for more Simplr straps.

  17. F1's Little Brother

    Ronald

    The F1 ultralight is a natural for my X100V. I’ve had the F1 on my X3 for several years and it works great so this was a no brainier. I especially like the fact that there is no bulk from the strap where it attaches to the camera, thus giving you a better grip. The adjustable length gives you the option of full sling style or just over the neck.

  18. It’s fine...

    Fuji XT-3

    The “tightening and loosening” action is as smooth as I had hoped, it isn’t really a one handed operation like the short video shows. It constantly twists, although most straps do. I think it’s way too expensive for what is… I used it for a trip to the mountains, it was fine. I prefer my old stiffer leather strap. It’s probably just preference at the end of the day. I do wish the action was smoother.

      Thanks for sharing. Our wider F1 is what we recommend for the X-T3. Get in touch if you’d like to do a swap — and of course you can just return that F1ultralight if it’s not working out for you.

  19. Perfect travel strap

    Joe

    I purchased this to go with my Fuji x100v. The simple aesthetic is really great and unassuming. The strap is nearly weightless which is great for travelling, and makes it the perfect match for a small camera you want to carry around all day. The simple design also never gets in the way of holding and shooting pictures which is incredibly important especially for shooting quickly on the street. The length adjustments are also quick and effortless. The strap seems very well made and despite the incredibly light weight I’m never concerned about the safety of my camera. Highly recommended.

  20. Nothing else like it

    Eric

    Over the last few years I’ve become a massive Simplr fan. Started with an M1a, graduated to an F1, and now I’ve got the F1ultralight on my brand new X100v. Of all the Simplr straps I’ve had this one is the most unique and specialized. I don’t think anyone else is making anything close. For me, when street shooting, having a strap that’s easy to adjust is important. To be honest, that’s not hard to find, but what makes the F1ultralight unique is the lightness, thin-ness, and high stealth factor combined with that adjustability. There’s nothing shiny or fancy about it, but it’s really well made. Also very comfy. I’m confident it’s the last strap I’ll buy for my X100V and then I will move it over to my future X100Z or whatever they call the next one.

  21. The best split-ring camera strap designed with versatility and simplicity in mind. Excellent for your everyday adventures!

    Jarvis

    Having been a huge fan of their M1 series and the original F1 strap, I saw this new model from SIMPLR and had to give it a try; I was extremely glad that I did. While I love the M1 series for their detachable lug straps, some cameras ask for a more anchored strap and the F1ultralight exceeds my expectations. It combines the best elements of the M1 and the F1 straps into a very slim, strong, and wonderful package.

    The purpose of the F1ultralight is to allow you to quickly dial in your preferred length and forget it. Its lightweight design collapses very easily into a camera bag or simply wraps around your hand as a quick wrist strap, and the strap hardware is very durable and polished. Most camera straps are incredibly bulky, whether the straps themselves, or the hardware used, but the every aspect of the F1ultralight strap is made for everything you need, nothing more.

    Perfect for fixed-lens cameras like the X100 and RX1 series or interchangeable mirrorless cameras with prime lenses. While the M1 series is excellent for cameras with small or shallow lugs, such as RX100 series or the Ricoh GR series of cameras, the F1ultralight provides a bit more stability while not compromising on bulk for any camera with a split-ring lug design. It is especially well-suited for Fuji lugs, which in recent years have incorporated an extra piece on the inside to increase the longevity of the lug, but also have a side-effect of being a bit scratchy on non-metal strap connections. However, zero worries with the F1ultralight.

    My new favorite strap. Great job, Simplr!
