My Camera Has A New Best Friend

by Guest Contributor

Did you know that you can basically take any household item and create something new from it? The age old motto of never throwing anything out resonates in my mind when I think of this new product we were introduced to–Lens Loop. Lens Loop was created by Vadim as he realized that he was going on a week long trip and did not have a camera strap for his camera. He cut seatbelt webbing from an old Chevy in a junkyard and started experimenting with the various hardware options he could piece together from the backpacks and messenger bags that he had around the house.

After some time, he finally had a very comfortable and durable strap for his camera. Just when he thought he was done making them, his friends began asking him to make the straps for them as well–thus Lens Loop was born.

When I first received the camera strap provided by Lens Loop, I wasn’t quite sure how it was going to work with my camera. I figured it must only be for large, professional sized cameras because the clasp is pretty large, but I was wrong. There’s a nifty attachment that allows you to connect the strap to the same place you would attach a tripod.

Once connected, the Lens Loop strap became my camera’s best friend. After using this strap for the last couple of weeks, it must be said that I will never go back to using the thin, weak strap that came with my camera. The Lens Loop strap is extremely well made, attractive, and very comfortable. It allows me to wear my camera hands-free. I no longer have to worry about my children, or anyone else for that matter, grabbing at my camera and snapping the strap.

I love my camera and would hate for something to happen to it just because I had a flimsy strap. Now that I have the Lens Loop camera strap, all of my worries are gone. I highly recommend using this perfectly created camera strap. One of the great things about this product is that it’s made in the United States! I buy American whenever I possibly can. Doesn’t everyone?

I have seen these straps before and always wanted to try one out. It seems like it would be much easier to move around with a small child with this strap!

It would definitely help because I’m often carrying my little one in a front wrap and the camera. Putting it around my neck is impossible, but being able to carry it towards the side would be perfect!

I find that my neck hurts after wearing my camera for a few hours at the parks, so I think it would certainly alleviate that neck strain.

I would use the strap to keep my camera safe while taking photos of my kids. Great giveaway, thanks for hosting!

I wear my strap around my neck because it’s not long enough for crossbody, so this would keep it from hurting my neck and from my camera bouncing around everywhere,t hanks!

I am an eternal klutz so anything that keeps me from dropping my camera is great in my books

I usually have my camera hanging on my shoulder and sometimes worry about it sliding off. It’s too heavy to hang around my neck. I’d love the hands-free use of this strap!

I have been looking at this strap for a while now! Thanks for the great review. This strap would help keep my camera safely attached to me while chasing after my toddler and preschooler.

Oh I adore the Lens Loop. A friend has it and I was so jealous when I saw it. Gorgeous and functional! This would help me keep the camera from banging into things because the camera faces DOWN instead of face forward (I had a DSLR). So so want this one!

I would love this! My current strap really hurts my neck and shoulders after a while.

Trying to juggle the camera and two kids – I really need the strap – now my camera goes in and out of the bag and mostly stays in my purse

Will give to a friend of mine, if I won.

It will help me on days like today when I am traipsing through the forest looking for a Christmas tree to cut down and trying to carry my camera that keeps bouncing in front of me. I need a way to tuck it behind me in case I fall.

Should be pretty good especially if you have one of those bigger camera’s.

I think it would be great to have this strap when you have the kiddos in tow.

It would help when I am going to places with my kids and have to keep my hands (and arms) free to corral them at all times!

I do a lot of hiking, and am always at a loss on how to handle my camera when climbing hills. I would feel so much more secure with this strap!

I have two boys agest 2.5 and 3 months that I love to take pictures of, but I run out of hands! This would be so helpful.

I would love to win this strap, mine now is way to small and I can only carry my camera. Thanks
