F1ultralight

New!

If our F1 had a mutant superhero baby, it would be the F1ultralight.

Combine the F1’s expedition-grade construction, quick-adjustment tab, and streamlined design — with even more breathtaking lightness and slimmer proportions — and you’ve got the featherweight champion of camera straps. (weighing in at one ounce!)

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 counts — especially near your hand where it matters most. With zero extra bulk, and sleek lug mount attachment, it’s about as close as you can get to holding a naked camera.

As the smallest cameras inherit the capabilities of their larger brethren (like the Fujifilm X100 and Sony RX1R series), so too should your camera strap — and that’s exactly what we did with the F1ultralight.

Usually ships in 1–2 business days.

Overview

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

One: 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).

Two: The F1ultralight employs a handy “rip cord” which can be used to form a lanyard/long wrist strap (or fold the strap neatly for storage) — whereas on the F1, the webbing can be looped through the D-rings to form a wrist strap.

How-To

Install Simplr Split Rings, or a Lug Mount F1

*If you’re just installing Simplr Split Rings, not an F1 camera strap, you can skip straight to 1:07 in this video. Your new F1 will be more pleasant to use if you do a quick “break-in” before installing it on your camera. Adjust the strap from minimum to maximum length about twenty times, by holding […]
