About Eddycam Camera Straps

Because there is nothing better for camera straps than Elk leather

Elk leather is the perfect leather for camera straps: up to 1,8-2,0 mm thick, extremely durable and breathable. At the same time unbeatably soft and pleasantly cuddly and warming in direct contact with the skin. The leather we use comes exclusively from Scandinavia, where wild elk are hunted in limited numbers in a strictly controlled manner, mainly for their meat. The hunting season begins with the arctic winter, when the animals' skin is at its thickest. Our Finnish partner selects only the best hides for further processing.

A handful of committed, competent employees and two highly specialized companies

Our elk leather processor and supplier in Finland as well as a small Bavarian manufactory that processes handpicked raw materials and components according to our specifications into exclusive camera straps.

EDDYCAM – that's Edlef Wienen, too: an experienced photo merchant, enthusiastic photographer, recognized specialist for system cameras and grown up with the world of photography since early childhood. He not only gave the brand his name, but is also considered the inventor of the elk leather camera strap.

Inspired by exclusive bags and fashionable accessories made from elk leather

The knowledge of the needs of the most demanding photographers and the passion for exceptionally beautiful, durable natural products motivated Edlef Wienen to develop a new, absolutely reliable camera strap. Inspired by exclusive bags and fashionable accessories made from elk leather, Wienen decided to also use this high-quality natural material for camera straps.

This is how EDDYCAM came about from decades of experience, the finest Scandinavian elk leather, high-quality components made in Germany and a lot of passion: the uniquely comfortable, robust camera strap with an unmistakable look - the quality-conscious photographer accompanies you thick and thin. A life long.

Easy to clean EDDYCAM instructions

Each band is sealed with a transparent, durable wax, making it very resistant to dirt. It always performs well even under extreme conditions and requires hardly any maintenance.

Special care is not usually necessary, but if the strap does get wet, it can simply be dried at normal room temperature (15-25° Celsius). However, heat sources such as radiators, hair dryers or similar should be avoided.

Dirt can be rubbed off with a soft cotton cloth and little effort. A soft brush is suitable for removing stubborn dirt. If that doesn't help either, the belt can be lightly sprayed with cold water mist and then rubbed dry with a soft cotton cloth

  • Comfort

    Elk leather is a high-quality natural product and is not only one of the thickest, but also one of the finest leathers in the world. It gets its incomparable elasticity from the special processing in a Finnish tannery that specializes in elk leather.

    The soft, skin-friendly surface, the ergonomic shape of the straps, a stepless length adjustment and the solvent-free padding made of pure natural rubber ensure that EDDYCAM neither pulls nor presses. Not on the neck, not on the shoulder - not even after wearing it for hours.

  • Laod-Bearing Capacity

    EDDYCAM owes its extreme resilience primarily to the solid workmanship and the resilience of the elk leather and all other product components.

    Whether 5-way connecting straps sewn with a special thread (with a tensile strength of 4700 N), unbreakable stainless steel clamps for length adjustment or connecting elements made of robust PP material - only the consistently high quality of all components ensures the enormous resilience of the camera straps. And makes them almost indestructible – even under the toughest climatic and operating conditions. We give a two-year guarantee on this.

  • Individuality

    Every EDDYCAM is unique. Because every piece of elk leather tells its own story. Small scratches are evidence of previous injuries to the animal, bruises from turf wars and tiny scars from insect bites.
    And because EDDYCAM was developed for individualists with very different preferences and needs, we offer the belts in over 100 designs
    in 6 widths, suitable for all camera models.
