This black beauty is made from genuine leather and pierced all over with six types of studs. Despite the metal, the camera strap is lightweight and feels great around the neck.

The strap works itself seamlessly into my personal style, and is easy to attach to any DSLR camera (like my Sony A-700). The length is adjustable.
