Here, I’ll show you a super simple way to add a strap to your La Sardina camera. The steps are simple and easy. Learn the steps on how to do this after the break.
One interesting feature of La Sardina is the dedicated flash port for Fritz the Blitz. Instead of a standard hot shoe, the product designers at Lomography.com decided to use a dedicated port similar to other cameras manufactured at the time of the Irwin Kandor Candid camera on which La Sardina is based. The Kandor Candid did not have support for a flash, but other cameras of the time had flashes that a user would mount by screwing them into the side of the camera. Here’s what the flash port for La Sardina looks like:

Now I can use La Sardina with confidence not having to worry about dropping my precious.
