mod. Camera Straps and Accessories Giveaway

March 23, 2012

If you’ve read my bio – you would have discovered that I am an ex-stamper (paper addict really…) turned {Dream} Quilting Addict (or… fabric addict..!).  It’s something about bright and bold colors that really speaks to me and makes my insides happy.

I am a bright colors/sparkles/frills kind of girl.  I drool over {modern} frilly sparkly things.  The problem is, is that I am NOT brave enough to display frilly sparkly things out in public.  It might draw attention to myself *eeek!!*
So I tend to stick with the neutrals.  Low-key..  which I’m now beginning to realize has stopped me from so many things in life…

Anyway – back to the subject:

So when I saw the fabrics and designs of the straps at mod. I was initially drooling over each and every design I wanted…. dreaming of how fresh and modern my camera accessories could be…

This was my personal favorite:

But then my brain kicked in, and I resisted.  I wanted something more elegant – that my husband wouldn’t mind holding the camera around his neck while we’re on vacation…

I just love the strap – It’s called Copper Alligator:

I was expecting it to be a bit more copper, which I was nervous about – but it is the perfect color…. it’s slightly bronzed, but mostly brownish colored.  Not too shimmery that my husband would be embarrassed – and the softness??? Yeah.  Nothing comes close in comparison:

Old Strap:  Rough, Thin, Neck-Cutting

New Strap:  Soft, Plushy, Sweat-Absorbing Winking smile

The Classic and Premium straps from mod. are lined with high quality, minky cuddle plush fabric for ultimate comfort. Amazingly soft.

The biggest pain of changing your straps?

photo 3Dealing with the clasps.. I understand – you’ve got to be sure that the strap isn’t going to fail and make your camera fall to the ground… but geez, that was a chore.

There is an accessory that you can purchase from mod. that is called a quick release adaptor.  So if I were to have gotten the pink flowers, Joe would be able to quickly disconnect the pink when he wanted to use the camera. Genius.

Isn’t My Camera so Pretty?? Open-mouthed smile

What’s that on the Cap?

It’s called a Cap Saver.  It’s the best invention since sliced bread.

Having young children around the house AND being a blogger – I tend to use the camera, a lot.  I almost never remember where I set the cap last –

Or if the ‘kids’ (Ethan) get ahold of it and move it… The last time we found the cap it was at the bottom of the toy bin. I’m sure the ‘kids’ (Ethan) intended on putting it there, after I offered ‘them’ (Ethan) up for sale

So when I saw the Cap Savers on modstraps.com I knew I just *needed* one of these.

I love it.

I was worried that it would get in the way when I was taking a picture – or that I’d be fumbling over the cap to adjust the zoom – but Nope! I hardly notice it’s there – other than the fact that when I go to put the cap back on the camera, it’s attached!
