Soft strap ideal for Sony Alpha 99

Our Alpha 99 review will be up shortly – but in the meantime, here’s the strap I have been using on the 99. That little wallet attached to the strap has a secure, perfect fit holder for the 99 or NEX-6 flash shoe cover insert or for MS Pro Duo memory cards. Also, it is a really nice soft woven fabric strap with no hard edges like the current Sony straps have, and no stiff bit.

Strap Set II
Here is a vintage strap from the days of the Dynax/Maxxum xi models, with a sewn-on Creative Expansion Card case. Our price £10 (a mere $16) shipped anywhere, including VAT where applicable.

The wallet is an EXACT FIT for MemoryStick Pro Duo cards. It will hold six Memorystick Pro Duo cards in individual slots. It will not hold SD cards, they are too large, but if you cut into two of the pockets and tape over them, you can form a holder for SD. The wallet slots are also a secure precise fit for the Alpha 99 or NEX-6 new hot shoe cover insert. You can store this vital protective cover safely as well as carry emergency MS Pro Duo storage. Otherwise there is no place to put it when you fit a flash or a wireless trigger, or the adaptor for iISO Auto Lock shoe devices.

These straps are much softer and more comfortable than the new Alpha or NEX straps. It’s easy to cut off the memory card wallet if you do not want it. The strap is not only wide, and soft fabric which can be wrapped round the camera to protect it, it’s also 120cm long (after allowing for securing). It has no metal parts and will not scratch anything.
