From the Restrap Shoot Camera Straps Kickstarter UK Campaign
: Less than a second. That’s the time it takes for a camera to be attached to the Shoot strap. No extra pulling or tightening, just one single action, with one single hand - all through the power of magnets.
The Shoot’s magnetic connection system (“SNAPS”), capable of bearing 100kg, allows any camera to be carried with unfailing security. The SNAPS are a pair: one side attaches to the camera, the other to the strap. The result is a seamless connection. Cameras are fastened, removed, swapped and fine tuned with unbeatable ease.
Shoot is the brainchild of Restrap, a well-established, British brand with expertise in producing innovative products, totally hand-made in Yorkshire.
There are two versions of the strap: The Shoot (£35) secures the camera around the photographer’s neck or in a sling style, whilst the Shoot Mini (£20) attaches around the wrist – either right or left – to keep the camera closer to hand.
In addition to the powerful forces of the magnets, the straps themselves are designed to withstand anything. Made from recycled, automotive-grade seatbelt webbing in 50mm (Shoot) and 25mm (Shoot Mini), they are secured with custom laser-cut tri-glide buckles and are stylishly finished with genuine, hard-wearing suede. Both models are available in red or black.
Nathan Hughes, founder and director of Restrap, says: “We set out to design a strap that would offer unparalleled strength without compromising the flexibility photographers want when shooting on the streets. The Shoot range gives them the security they need, whilst letting them play around with the camera quickly and easily.”
