Spice Up Your Camera with the Handstrap in Lime Punch!

The Lomography Handstrap in Lime Punch is a cheap and funky alternative to your camera's native handstrap. Read on and find out more!

I bought the Lomography Handstrap in Lime Punch back at the East London Gallery Store the day the Sardina Metal Edition was released. Granted, it was an impulse buy near the register, but certainly not one I have regretted.

Details first; the handstrap is about 15 cm long, made from natural leather in a very funky lime color.

At the Lomography Online Shop, it goes for €6.90, the prices will be adjusted according to the country of purchase. It is a very solid hand strap, mainly because it’s made of leather and not cheap plastic. It can be used with any camera that has some kind of a hole to insert the little thread for attaching to the camera.

I mainly use this hand strap when I have no intention of carrying a camera around my neck —so basically, it’s anytime I feel like taking a camera out and just shooting, shooting, shooting.

My guess is that this would be a perfect accessory for the Lomo LC-A, as it would greatly spice up the LC-A’s black colour scheme and be very handy as an accessory.

I use it on my Diana Mini or my Diana Quing Hua:

In this picture you see that the Diana Mini is noticeably smaller than the hand strap, but I’m sure that it will be perfect for the LC-A. By the way, this thing can hold some weight. I’ve tried it once with my Lubitel 166B, and it works great, although it’s not very comfortable to drag that kind of camera around on your hand.

If green is your colour and you want to spice things up, go ahead, get it and start rocking the Lomo World, the Lime Punch way!

The Lomography Camera Handstrap is super handy, and it’s strong enough to string your camera along everywhere you go. Every Lomographer on-the-go must have a Leather Handstrap, available in our Online Shop.

    I want one so bad, I just hate that they're made of leather.

    After much search, I was about to have strap made until I can across your post. Did you take the original strap off your mini?

    Nope, I didn't take anything off, just added the lime punch one to it :)
    Since then I had to migrate that strap to my LC-A+ though, since I'm barely using the Mini nowadays
