I’ll be honest. My camera kit is definitely lacking right now.
I haven’t left my house very much in the past few months, which means I’ve been doing a lot of online window shopping, but haven’t pulled the trigger on any camera strap upgrades in quite a while.
If your camera kit, like mine, could also use a little something new, I’ve got the perfect leather camera strap for you.
My favorite addition to my camera kit that I ever made was my Holdfast MoneyMaker. The MoneyMaker, like most of Holdfast’s products, is made of genuine leather, which ages a lot more beautifully than I do.
You can tell that this camera strap was created with photographers in mind because every little detail was meticulously planned out. All of the metal on the MoneyMaker is stainless steel, which never rusts. You can add camera leashes to the MoneyMaker to allow yourself to be able to carry up to three cameras on your body at once.
Plus, unlike camera harnesses of lesser quality, the MoneyMaker is fit for you with multiple sizes available.
Still, if I’m going to be using anything in my camera kit it has to fit my aesthetic. Not only does the Holdfast MoneyMaker look incredibly classic because it's made of leather, but it also comes in a variety of different colors, like black, tan, and chestnut so you can make sure it fits with all of your other equipment.
While this is going to be an investment in your camera kit at $230, every Holdfast product comes with a lifetime guarantee so you’ll never need to purchase another camera harness ever again.
Holdfast MoneyMaker Solo
If you’re looking for something smaller to add to your camera kit, then the MoneyMaker Solo may be perfect for you.
The MoneyMaker Solo is made of the same quality ingredients that the larger MoneyMaker is, but it’s built for just a single camera, which also means it’s cheaper at $175. Instead of a camera harness, the MoneyMaker Solo is a cross body camera strap.
It comes with a shoulder strap stabilizer, so your camera will stay in place all day. It also features a belt anchor so your camera doesn’t flop around while you’re out riding, walking, or hiking to your next shoot.
It also comes in tan, burgundy, chestnut and black so you have even more color options than the traditional MoneyMaker.
Limited Edition Olive MoneyMaker and MoneyMaker Solo
If you’re really looking for the best camera straps for your camera kit, then I think you have to opt for a limited edition strap, like the Olive Drab MoneyMaker or the Olive Drab MoneyMaker Solo.
It’s always fun to have something that nobody else does, especially when it's as practical as this camera harness, or strap, is.
The Olive Drab MoneyMaker is actually a vegan product, so instead of leather, it’s made of vegan leather which actually works better in inclement weather since you don’t need to worry about getting it wet or leaving it out in the hot sun.
Like I mentioned, this limited edition color can be used for either a MoneyMaker or MoneyMaker Solo, at $220 or $200.
The Holdfast crew actually bought their supplier out of this olive color material, which means that once it's gone, it’s going to be gone for good.
Essentially, if you like this color, you better jump over to their website and place your order now. Since this is a limited edition, you will need to allow a few extra days for your product to be created.
And, don’t worry. This product comes with the exact same lifetime guarantee that every Holdfast camera strap and harness does.
