NEW Braided polyester shoulder straps.

We have just introduced our new shoulder straps in braided, soft feel polyester.  They will be available in four colours, Sun Yellow, Sky Blue, Fire Red and Black with a choice of 20 trim colours. The split rings are attached with leather which is glued and stitched through the cord prior to binding.




  The following photos show the stages of attaching the end
  rings to the polyester cord.


  The leather ring retainers are shaped to fit neatly around          
  the cord end and glued in place.

  


  The next stage is to saddle stitch the retainers to the cord
  using a strong waxed thread.


  Once the leather ends are secured we proceed to the     
  binding.



    Choose from twenty colour trim options to finish your    
    strap.  Our braided straps can be made in custom 
  lengths to suit you.

NEW Wrist Strap HD




We have recently introduced a new heavy duty wrist strap to our range.
Basically, the same as our standard wrist strap but now ½" wide rather
than ⅜".  Available in a choice of four Dakota leather colours and 24
trim colours.  There will also be a ball bearing swivel version for those 
that prefer this option. They are a heavier model (86kg) and have welded
rings for added strength. For flexibility and a much improved user experi-
ence they're very hard to beat.

Shoulderpod S1



Having spotted this online some months ago, I thought it 
would be a useful addition to my camera bag.  I'm using
my iPhone more and more for photography/video and 
being a clumsy person at the best of times this little gadget
appeared to have what I was looking for.



  The S1 comes nicely packaged.....



  Comes in 3 parts, the grip (adjustable) a metal grip which
  gives some weight/balance and a wrist strap.



  Assembled and ready.  Although the main (adjustable) body
  is a plastic material it has a nice robust feel to it. A knurled             
  knob allows adjustment to most sizes of camera.
  Removal of the bottom (weighted) section and the strap
  reveals a ¼ " socket which will enable you to attach the S1
  directly to a tripod. 

  Note...Strap shown is not the one supplied with kit.        






  Phone fitted and good to go.  Once fitted the phone/camera
  has a much better overall feel to it and the extra control is
  vastly improved.  The supplied strap is also very useful as 
  it removes any concerns over dropping your phone. 




  Adjusts for larger handsets (pictured with iPhone 6 plus)



  All in all, I would say a very worthwhile investment for 
  smartphone photographers/videographers.  Image quality
  is certainly improved simply by the extra control the S1
  gives you.  At a little over £20 it's certainly one of my best
  purchases so far this year and I would have no hesitation
  in recommending it to any serious smartphone photog-
  raphers.
