Casually looking for a camera strap for a Yaschia Mat 124 G TLR.
What kind do you want? Just about any camera strap will work with it.
I have a Yashica branded skinny strap. Not sure if it is originally from a 124G or one of the rangefinders but it is in good shape. PM me if you want it/want photos.
Heh, the one I use on mine proclaims "Canon EOS Digital!"
Mine is grey with some yellow on it and it says NIKON.
When asked, you'll probably tell them it's the first digital prototype of Canon, made in 1978??
My Yashica TLR's strap says Nikon D300, My rolleiflex's has a bright shiny D600 strap.
It's been said many times, that most camera straps from camera manufacturers
do a better job of advertising their brand name, then actually being a good camera strap.
For comfort, durable utility and value...it's hard to beat an 'OP/Tech' strap.
OP/Tech, Classic Strap, (adequate for your Mat-G):
OP/Tech, Pro Strap, for heavier/heaviest of cameras:
B&H Photo's 'Camera Strap' pages:
Maybe I should have been more clear. I am looking to find a original Yashicia TLR leather camera strap. Thanks to those who provided web links. I really liked the straps at jodiescamerastraps.com
I think I may have what you are looking for .I purchased a 124G from Mark Hama and he sent a strap with it , I believe it has Yashica imprinted on the inside of the strap through out the length , LEt me get home and I will see if I can find it
no delete options :confused:
Good luck finding the original, I know I have seen them around...But I do second the Optech strap as a great second choice. I use them on a couple of my cameras, including an RB67, and love them. They do a pretty good job of distributing the load of some of the heavier cameras out there.
That's the one I'm currently using on a Canon EF :confused: (I know I should be ashamed). At least its's a good strong bit of webbing.
I think that the original strap on my 124G is one of those miscellaneous plasticky / vinyl things. Doesn't really look like leather. Who knows when it will give out.
I''d better replace it with a web strap ASAP.
I have one if you are still interested.I pmed you
At that site I find abundant information on the decorative side.
But what is the underside made of?
Thanks again for all the replies. I did purchase a new strap at the new camera store in town.
