I shot this photos on a climbing path over the city of Caprie, in Piemonte, Italy. It's a climbing that whoever with a normal physical form can face. Carring the X-T1 all the way to the top wasn't difficult, expect from some difficult transition where the rock was on my left side (where I had the camera), and the weight of the camera + lens didn't bother me at all. I almost forgot of it in some moments. Here some of the shots I took. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7
I noticed a lot of the custom climbing rope straps that use leather patches for termination have two points of failure: The single seam attaching the leather patch to the climbing rope The fold of the leather patch holding the keyring on the camera Like in this type of climbing rope strap: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Peacock-blue-Climbing-rope-10-5mm-handmade-Camera-neck-strap-Generic-SLR-DSLR-/112165047126?hash=item1a1d8ecb56:g:7VYAAOSw8w1X~jJd Both are poor choices for holding a camera safely, as the will inevitably wear down and break. I've noticed there is an Etsy seller who actually uses the rope to hold the camera but to hold it together, he seems to use a complex knot: https://www.etsy.com/shop/GUMBINGER?ref=l2-shop-info-name&from_reg=2&joined=1§ion_id=18829304 Has anyone used these and saw them up close? How do they hold up to wear and tear? Do the melted ends of the cord holding the rope fray and fall off, letting the rope open up? Thanks!
