M1w

(18 customer reviews)

$19.00

Seeking the antidote for elaborate and bulky wrist straps (seriously, we make neck straps that pack smaller), we set our sights on creating the most functional, no-nonsense quick-release wrist strap ever … the M1w Mirrorless Wrist Strap.

Weighing-in around a third of an ounce, the nano-sized M1w makes a great always-on companion for stealthy cameras like the Fujifilm X100, X-E, Ricoh GR, Canon PowerShot G, or Olympus PEN. It’s also ideal as a safety tether for your larger camera, any time you prefer shooting without a neck strap.

Our M1-Series Quick-Release Camera Straps all use the same connector, so you can swap them effortlessly … wrist strap to neck strap (or back) in seconds.

Usually ships in 1–2 business days.

Overview

Not Too Big. Not Too Small.

Finding a wrist strap that’s not ridiculously big for your mirrorless camera is no easy task. The M1w uses 1/2″ wide (12.7mm) mil-spec-style nylon webbing that distributes the weight of smaller cameras, and protects your larger camera from unexpected drops — without feeling like you’re handcuffed to it.

Easy to Put On, Adjust & Remove

No more wrestling with stubborn adjusters … Ours is easy to slide, but grippy enough to stay in place until you move it. “Set it and forget it” or cinch it a little smaller once it’s on — whichever you prefer.

Accommodates All Size Hands

Unlike wrist straps that use a “lasso” design, which get longer when sized for small wrists and shorter when sized for large wrists (the exact opposite of what’s ideal), ours always stays the same length. And if you’ve got gigantic hands, you can remove the adjuster altogether.

Light, Strong & Built to Last in the USA

Materials used to make the M1w are similar to what you’d find on state-of-the-art expedition gear, where strength-to-weight ratio is critical (here’s a strength test), and exposure to the elements is no big deal.

The M1w is built to ridiculously high standards in our U.S. shop, from domestic and imported materials.

M1w + M1a = Mirrorless Camera Strap Bliss

Combine the M1w wrist strap with the M1a neck strap, and you’ve got a dynamic duo that’s ready for any situation, and packs small. Because they use the same OpTech Mini QD Loop connector, you can swap them in seconds.

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 […]

How to Attach Mini QD Loops™ to Cameras with Split Rings

Unless you’re 100% certain that your camera has smooth lugs, it’s best that you attach Mini QD Loops via split rings. Furthermore, we suggest that you use ours, as they’re uniquely designed to work beautifully with the cord loops (much better than the triangular ones). 1. Thread the cord loop through the split ring. 2. […]

How to Attach Mini QD Loops™ to Cameras without Split Rings

Before attaching Mini QD Loops directly to strap lugs, read this important post: Strap Lug Inserts: What are they and why should I care? Unless you’re 100% certain that your camera has smooth lugs, it’s best that you attach Mini QD Loops via split rings, as outlined here. 1. Thread the cord loop through the strap […]

Strap Lug Inserts: What are they and why should I care?

What They Are Strap lug inserts are hardened metal “sleeves” located inside strap lugs. They’re meant to reduce metal-on-metal wear caused when hard steel split rings rub against softer metal lugs. Some cameras have strap lug inserts and some don’t. Fujifilm cameras are notorious for having potentially jagged strap lug inserts, and all modern Fuji cameras including […]

Removing Strap Lug Inserts from Fujifilm Cameras (Optional)

If you’ve got a Fujifilm camera, and you’d like to attach your Mini QD Loops™ directly to your camera, you might* be able to remove your strap lug inserts to reveal a smoother point of attachment. Please note that if you scratch a strap lug during this procedure, you could very easily make them sharper than […]
