Furry camera fashion...

I came across this by coincidence... I love furs and leathers for jackets, purses, and shoes- but camera straps?

Oh and make sure you check out the price tags on these things... OUCH! ---> Bryan Boy | Adrienne Landau

I personally use shearing on my straps for comfort, but I've never thought about using fur like this guy...

What's your opinion? Like 'em or too over the top?

Over-the-top for sure. The DSLRs in the second picture look way out of place. It looks like the fur is trying to turn them into chic fashon accessories... and failing miserably. The gaudy straps in the third picture look cheesy regardless of what's hanging from them.

The more subtle one in the last three pictures isn't so bad, especially with the classic camera, but fur carries a lot of snobbery with it, and we all know a snob would never be caught dead with a Pentax.

Speaking of over-the-top, what's with the huge font?

I agree with your comments on the top three photos.

Oh, that? I entered that for a design contest, didn't want anyone to steal my image. I couldn't find the original w/out the text on it.

Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to call you a snob. Just a joke, you see... You shoot Pentax, which is a sure sign that you're not.

I wasn't talking about the copyright mark in the picture. I mean that all the text in your first post is very large. It threw me a bit.

No, no problem, I just misunderstood your post.

So I guess it makes sense that the designer of the funky straps is a Canon shooter?

wow, I kinda like the green and the purple fur things. I think it is just the color I like. Oh ,It's funny I have all of the things in that photo with the blue Pentax but the strap> No way would I put one on to take photos. Oh, I liked the big type it was easy to read, even without my 3x spy glass.
