Product Description

Pho-Reel™  Limited Edition Appliqued Camera Strap System with Retractable Locking Cable [Patent Pending]

Unique & colorful hands free mobility to grab, go, and shoot... Custom made in the USA.

Limited edition Pho-Reel™ Camera Shoulder Strap offers the benefits of the standard Pho-Reel™ with a handmade applique top available in a variety of colors.*

Pho-Reel™ Camera Strap:The patent pending design provides hands-free mobility and comfort for photographers. No more neck pain from your camera strap. No more fear of the strap sliding from your shoulder. Easy glide and lock into place vinyl coated steel cable reel and custom stainless steel clip provide multiple ways to quickly move your camera into place, from side carry, to eye or tripod for shooting.  Carry your essential accessories like an additional lens and filters with you. Move freely without a whole camera bag that all too often you place aside while shooting and can be stolen. A second shoulder strap can carry another camera and additional accessories. Handcrafted, rainbow of colors and combinations creating a haute couture & folkloric sense of style.

  •  Asymmetrical padded shoulder strap distributes weight evenly and is constructed with additional padding.
  •  Shoulder pad underside constructed with military-standard nylon mesh to promote wicking, dissipate body heat, and provide additional padding without adding weight.
  • Chest strap prevents shoulder strap from slipping.
  • Two foot (610mm) locking retractable vinyl coated steel cable allows ease of shooting either hand held or from tripod but avoids camera swing in retracted position. (Cable actuates at the push of a button. ALWAYS hold the camera with a little tension when extending or retracting the cable. If the camera is unclipped from the reel, hold the Bozeman clip while retracting or extending the cable.)
  • A clear poly-olefin shrink-tube is included for covering the stainless steel mounting barrel (upper portion) of the bozeman-style clip for those concerned about addition protecton.
  • Custom stainless steel snap clip is modular in design to securely snap into camera mounting plate (included in your order and customized to your camera body) or it can clip into the camera strap mounting loops on the body of most cameras.
  • Camera mounting base-plate secures either between the camera and tripod quick release plate or independently screws into the bottom of the camera body. The plate has an ultra-thin rubber coating to make contact with the body of the camera.
  • Shoulder pad loops allow carrying either Photipherals or alternate filter and lens pouches on both sides.
  • Optional linking straps allow joining two units together as a double strap.
  • Your order includes one custom-sized base plate and mounting screw. Additional plate and screw are available for purchase. Please make sure you select your camera body.* Cameras with battery grip should use a side mounting clip that is wider and longer for best balance.
  • The applique is durable and washable.
  • This edition is available in a 3 in. /76mm or a 3.5 in. /90mm wide harness. Be advised the wider harness may be better for broad shouldered individuals.
