Aaron Johnson's WTD character.

Here at Picture-soup.com we love What the Duck, the adorable cartoon strip created by Aaron Johnson featuring a Duck who just happens to be a professional photographer. The strip follows WTD and his photographer friends in their exploits and experiences [that all photographers can relate to]. Recently we received an email alerting us that there are now two different What the Duck camera straps available. We decided to look further… and found an interesting company doing the manufacturing.

What the Duck camera straps are created by HighKey Straps, with materials sourced in the USA and hand-assembled in Southern California. HighKey was founded last year by Tom Baker and Andie Haugen, two Brooks Institute of Photography students who wanted more than the “same old, same old” dull camera strap that are attached to masses of cameras around the world.

The two What the Duck camera straps made by HighKey Straps.

HighKey straps are 24″ long, with adjustable black leads that allow a total possible length of 44″. The underside of all straps are lined with a textured, non-slip material. The company offers a variety of camera strap designs/colors, and you can even create your own design. Simply use the Photoshop template provided on their website and design your own strap using any picture, logo or design you want.

Two of the many camera strap designs offered by HighKey Straps.

If you’ve never heard of What the Duck before, we insist you go to whattheduck.net now!

Review: Trendy Camera Straps

with one comment

A camera strap is pretty much one of the photography accessories that everyone owns. Most likely the one on your camera came with it – whether it is a point and shoot with a wristlet strap or a DSLR with a strap that bears the name of the manufacturer. There are also the padded straps that are offered by a few companies.

But we’ve found a cool new company – Trendy Camera Straps www.trendycamerastraps.com that offer the coolest handmade camera straps in a wide variety of designs for P&S and DSLR cameras, in styles that will appeal to both ladies and guys. The company even offers custom branding designs. Straps are available in wristlet and neck strap styles. DSLR straps are wider than the P&S styles, but whichever cameras you own, you’ll want to adorn each with its own Trendy Camera Strap.

If you want your camera – and its strap – to be an extension of your fashion sense and style, then you need to give Trendy Camera Straps a try. Trendy Camera Straps give your camera style.
