Camera Wrist Straps That Have Personality


Congratulations to Anita, who was comment #143, the number drawn by

When my niece Delanie was critically injured in a car accident May 2nd, I was up at the hospital continually. For weeks I took my D700 up there, in case there were pictures I would want to capture. Well, after a few weeks of that, I got tired of lugging it back and forth, so I bought a Canon G12 point and shoot camera, something I could fit in my pocket book and not feel burdened down with.

I love the G12, really love it, and keep it with me at all times. However, I needed a better way to keep a hold of the G12. I think it came with a skinny neck or wrist strap (not really sure, I just remember seeing what they had in the box and thinking no way!) that I was not going to use. So, I just held it in my hands for the first couple of weeks, not so safe for this mom who tends to bump into things and drop stuff.

Now, back in April I had ordered a wrist strap for my D700 from My Funky Camera but had not yet put it on. So, instead of putting it on the D700, I put it on the G12. It works great for that heavier-than-most-P&S cameras and reassures me that my camera is safe and secure when hanging on my wrist. And, on top of that, it looks GREAT! So much more hip than the boring wrist straps that come with cameras or that you can buy at an electronics store.

I have enjoyed this little wrist strap so much that I am giving away a $25 gift certificate to My Funky Camera to a lucky Everyday Elements reader. This is a gift certificate that I will purchase and email to the winner after the giveaway closes.

Please note: My Funky Camera is closed during all of July due to a cross-country move she is making, but will be reopening in early August.

  1. Tough one. I love all chocolate, especially dark, but if I have to pick a favorite, it’s a York Peppermint Patty! 🙂

  2. lemondrops.

    I will say I do NOT candy discriminate, but my grandma use to always have lemondrops on her kitchen table in this little bowl. I would ALWAY sneak them as a kid from the bowl thinking she had no idea I was eating them so much. She passed away when I was 10 and now when I have the lemondrops it’s like a small piece of grandma’s house and I always smile……

  3. Very cute strap! My all-time favorite is mint Aero bars, but anything chocolate will do!

  4. I love your strap!!!! I’d love to win some eye candy like that!!! Until I get some eye candy for my camera, I’ll settle for my fav candy, raisinettes!!!

    If I had to pick just one, I’d say Reese’s Peanut butter cups, although I LOVE their peanut butter eggs better, not sure why they are both made by same company LOL Love this strap, I have a Panasonic Lumix that I carry when I don’t want to lug around my Canon, this would be great for it.

    100 Grand bar is my favorite for three reasons:
    1. It has all the necessary ingredients: crunch, chocolate, goo.
    2. It’s sticky factor forces you to take your time.
    3. If I can’t spend it, at least I can eat it. Ahhhhhhhh…

  38. Wow! That’s a tough one since I LOVE anything chocolate! I would have to say that the Heath bar is one of my faves!

    Great giveaway! I’m crossing my fingers!

  39. I would have to say that I love a good twix bar…I had the one with the cookie on the bottom and it was really good…i like to take it apart and eat off the peanut butter and then eat the bottom part and i really enjoyed it…I split it with my son, so he got one and i got one! ha…I really do love you guys too by the way!
