Lomo Neck Strap Attachment for Street Photography

Velcro and a drop of super glue do the trick!

I like to shoot without using the viewfinder, a technique from using Lieca rangefinders with wide angle lens for many years. When i purchased my LC-Wide i was determined to find a way to attach a neck strap. The solution was simple and easy! Velcro and a drop of super glue.

    Tape is good, but I LOVE THE WAY VELCRO SMELLS!!! MUSTY CHINESE FACTORY YAY!!!!! moving tape kinda smells like that too. you know, that clear hard to cut stuff you can only rip with a funny contraption.

    Monkeyalien, I have been using it for over a month without a problem, the superglue on the camera Velcro is necessary to keep it secure. The Velcro along the height of the camera is stronger than the weight of the relatively light LC-Wide
    I also did the mod on my LCA :-)
