Gordy's camera strap on my X-T1

Recommended Posts

I ended up getting the Artisan/Artist Silk chord strap for my XT1.

Have had it for about a month now.

 

And it is so comfortable when carrying it around all day! It really does feel soft as silk on my shoulders.

 

Would also like a Gordy Strap though for some other camera bodies... looks great!

I used a Gordy's strap on my X-E2 with 18-55 before I sold them, but it's not comfortable with the X-T1 since my main lens now is the heavier 18-135. I ended up going back to my old Op-Tech padded strap that I used way back :) in the Canon DSLR era (only 3 years ago but it seems like forever). I like the quick disconnects with the Op-Tech also. The Gordy's is hard to get on and off easily with those split rings. Otherwise, for the right camera/lens combo it's a good strap with a very clean design.

I got the Peak Design hand strap but although well made its not perfect for the X-T1, its awkward to reach the shutter button, it would work great on the Sony range of A7r's due to the shutter being more forward, in fact thats the one thing I wish Fuji had done.

I ordered one of these straps for the fun of it.  

Since I'd be attaching it to the camera for use with my right wrist It'll be interesting to see how it affects my lens changing ability.  Even after a couple of years of Fuji use, I'm still programmed for Nikon - holding the camera with the left hand while swapping with right.  Because of the position of the lens release button, I'm finding the reverse to be faster with Fuji.  I may even try to switch which side I wear my shoulder bag on, too!  Wooooot!!!  It's getting CRAZY up in here!

I have a wrist strap, which I used on my x-e1 (which I sold). I haven't given it any use since getting a Luigi case and strap for my x100s. The leather of the Luigi strap is far superior to the Gordy though.

      Hello Guys

      My name is Amir, I'm a Photographer from Iran.
      I recently Joined this Community because I need your advice or opinion on a situation here.

      I'm a film shooter and recently I decided to buy a Fujifilm X Camera. I mainly do Landscapes, along with some portraits and street.

      I'm on a tight budget (roughly 1100$) and new Fuji products are very expensive here! (more than their normal price worldwide!) so I'm not in a good financial position to buy a Fuji X-T2...
      But recently I came across two options here. one is a brand new Fujifilm X-T1+18-55 kit lens around 800$ price tag (special offer) and the other one is a used X-T20+18-55 kit lens (roughly 2000 shots) around 950$.

      Depending on my needs, which one do you suggest? I'm planning to go with it for a minimum of 3 years so its a crucial choice for me here and also the weather sealing is a real deal breaker for me.

      what do you suggest? what should I do?

      Greetings from Roswell, GA.  I've been into photography since the 1960's, Long time Nikon user, just switched to Fuji.  I sold some images with the Nikon and have really enjoyed using it.  I'm giving it to my son who has a keen interest in photography and a good eye.  Thought about getting a full frame Nikon but just could not deal with the size and weight.  I've been fascinated with what Fuji is doing to advance digital photography ever since using an original X100 that belonged to a fellow photographer.  Decided to make the Fuji jump when I picked up a new, USA legal X-T1 and the 2.8 kit lens (not like any kit lens I've ever seen before, this baby impresses in all respects).   The deal seemed to be "too good to be true", got the camera and lens for $899 from B&H.   First round of sooc test shots blew me away - bokeh is incredible, as is image quality and the colors are amazing.  Camera feels perfect in my hands and this is the nicest piece of kit I've owned in a long time.  Could not be happier with my choice.  Looking forward to participating here and learning a lot.  Here is the first sooc test shot I took in classic chrome, everything else default camera jpeg.  I have already bonded with the Fuji!

      When and how are costume settings invoked on the X-T1?  I'll primarily shoot in Manuel mode, but also use apeture priority or shutter priority, setting ISO usually at 200.  Doing so, I have no idea what is being used for dynamic range, film simulation, white balance, color setting, sharpness, highlight tones, shadow tones, etc.  How do I know when a custom setting is being used and when my choice of dial settings are taking precedence over everything else?  Confused...  Dave
