Tamrac N-45 Camera Strap

Sometimes you have to admit that Americans can design and make consumer goods.  The Tamrac N-45 strap is a case in point.  This is a quick-release nylon strap with a nicely suede neck pad.  Not for vegans, not some exotic woven silk Artist & Artisan product (wow... could a company name be any more pretentious?), no neopreme to swing the camera into your pelvis, no curved neck pad to get in the way, no film loops, no extras, not too big, not too small.  It works well for anything from the size of a small SLR all the way up to a Fuji 6x9 camera.  And it's indestructible.  At $20, it's a steal.
