But for my IIIF have a very simple artisan and artist cloth strap I got from
Which is a cross between a wrist strap almost and neck strap. Its kind of
short and non adjustable. Which is a good thing its kind of a new thing you

kill people who use the word "workflo" now I'm doing it.
I seldom have a camera around my neck for more than 45 seconds when i'm
