My first stop was to a leather gear specialty shop in Kau U Fong, Central. They carry lots of camera straps made by leather which I thought it’d have rip off price (at first). Later I found out on the web that they carry a decent looking Gordy’s straps made in the USA and the price is until $200, just $170 HKD. I waited long enough from last Saturday night and finally to be able to take my first visit. It’s a shop off the ground level of the street. It’s very easy to be found.
They carry quite a few popular straps maker such as Gordy, and also their own in-house brand Barton 1972. Their design is as good as it gets. Very trendy and unique, makes you really want to appreciate the handmade touch on the strap. They offer overseas shipping too!!
I guess my lap turned out to be the best contrasting background to show the Gordy’s wrist strap i got. The strap is still very rigid,..i guess it’ll takes some time to break in. Hopefully it’ll get softer and softer, i really want it to be able to bend. The camera strap eyelet, strap clip and the strap is making it very awkward when holding.
Thanks to the thumb grip, i’m still able to hold the X100 in my hand steadily 🙂 Once again, I really hope this strap will break in and soften a bit. Or i’ll be looking for another type of wrist strap. Finger crossed.
My last stop was to get a dry box and silica gel. There weren’t a lot of options for me to choose from. I’m looking at storing my Ricoh and Fuji. That’s about it. Although the one I got it’s pretty big, It’s got good features such as the vacuum pump and a nice looking lid. It’s made in Korea and received an 05′ reddot design award. Looks sturdy. Hope this will last.
