Hard Graft Hang Camera Strap is a stylish way to keep your camera close – $106
There are many different ways to carry your precious camera when you’re out shooting pictures, but no matter what option you prefer you always need a good shoulder strap. Pretty much every camera sold comes with a branded strap that is too thin, too weak and that doesn’t match the great aesthetics of your camera.
The Hang Camera Strap uses Hard Graft’s characteristic combination of grey felt and hand-stained, Italian leather. It simply looks great, and it is robust enough to keep cameras of any size hanging securely on your neck or shoulder. If you like the design of the Hang Camera Strap then you have a huge collection of accessories to explore over at the Hard Graft website.

Panasonic Lumix GM1 is a powerful Micro Four Thirds camera in an unbelievably small size – $698
I’ve been using Micro Four Thirds cameras from Panasonic for a few years now and they are the perfect fit for my photography needs. You get powerful features in a small package without losing the ability to switch lenses when needed. The majority of my photos are taken when traveling so the small size of these mirrorless cameras is a big selling point for me. Most Micro Four Thirds cameras are significantly compact compared to normal DSLRs but you really have to see the GM1 with your own eyes to realize just how tiny it is. The picture above shows the camera next to a standard sized match box from swedish brand Solstickan. This camera is not just compact, it’s actually pocketable.
Despite the small camera body Panasonic still managed to include a 16MP sensor, WiFi-support, 1080 HD video recording, a pop-up flash, a 3.0-inch display and a lot of other goodies. It comes with a 12-32mm F3.5-5.6 zoom lens that was designed specifically for the GM1. The body weighs in at 204 grams and with the standard zoom lens attached the total weight is 361 grams.
