A CAMERA STRAP FEATURING QUICK RELEASE AND ANTI-THEFT TECHNOLOGY
If you want the perfect setup for your DSLR or mirrorless body in 2021, you can choose our new system to give you a Quick Release Camera Strap featuring new secure anti-theft technology.
We have long held to the tradition of carrying your camera body on a high-quality Australian Made leather strap. Slung over the shoulder, a bespoke Lucky strap supports a body and lens. As a result, it sets you free and avoids the need for bulky bags when you want to travel light.
The Quick Release and Anti-Theft Technology are available on our entire range of camera straps. Simply choose the 'Quick Release Ends' option when adding the strap to you cart. If you want to support your DSLR and telephoto lens securely, opt for something like Standard 53 in Classic Chestnut Brown. Or, for a lighter mirrorless kit, you can choose a thinner strap like our Simple 20 in Cognac.
Regardless of your choice, every Lucky strap is currently available with the new quick connection and Anti-Theft Technology to optimise your experience. What's more, you can opt for a range of colours, lengths, custom embossing and even choose the stitching colour. We have the perfect Lucky strap for you - or you can customise your own!

A QUICK RELEASE SYSTEM PROVIDING EASE OF USE
The Lucky strap system is equipped across our entire range of wrist and shoulder straps. If you demand a fast workflow to add and remove your strap with ease, the fast release feature is for you. We fit custom-engineered Alloy Clips to the cut and abrasion-resistant Dyneema® Webbing making this the safest and most convenient camera strap. We feel it’s the best strap for 2021 and beyond.
With a simple fluid movement, you can spring the gate on the Alloy Clip and attach the Lucky strap to your body lugs. The same action is all it takes to remove the clip from your camera, leaving zero attachments behind.
The unique design of our fast release also allows for rapid length adjustments without the need for bulky hardware on the main body of the strap. The Lucky strap system is extremely handy when using tripods, monopods, gimbals, stabilisers and water housings.
To complete the design and round out our anti-theft features, we integrated a safety lock into the Allow Clip, so you know your gear is secure from unintentional detachments. It is to protect your gear against theft and accidents. When travelling or working in crowded spaces, knowing that your gear is impervious to theft is a bonus. What's more, knowing that your gear won't accidentally unwind from your body is essential.
While some other fast release straps aim for simple one-handed detachment, we wanted to make sure this strap was fast and easy to detach but not easy enough for a thief to remove your gear in a crowd.
AN ANTI-THEFT CAMERA STRAP THAT'S CUT RESISTANT
We have always loved the fact that the Lucky design doesn't attract attention like the bright logos on stock straps. Having a Lucky strap resting over your shoulder, cross-body, or as a camera neck strap, while travelling is a breeze. The aesthetics allow you to blend into the crowd. There's nothing more liberating than exploring a new city with a mirrorless or digital SLR and single lens comfortably slung over your shoulder with no bag to get in your way.
To optimise your peace of mind while travelling, our new webbing takes security a step further by preventing 'cut-and-run' theft. The material is stitched securely into every Lucky and made exclusively by a specialist manufacturer in Melbourne, Australia. The cut-resistant webbing design, made from Dyneema®, is quite simply one of the world’s strongest fibres!
We have taken it upon ourselves to hack at this webbing so you can see just how far we take protection. As you can see in the video, we are pleased to say that it lives up to the hype of being cut-resistant.
When combined with the strength and durability of high-quality leather, and the new anti-theft fast release system, every Luck Strap strap is indestructible. It will last much longer than your gear ever will. To prove to you just how tough our straps are, check out our 'cut test' video.
QUICK RELEASE CAMERA STRAPS FOR CANON CAMERAS
The biggest part of a Lucky strap is that they pair effortlessly with a Canon DSLR camera and R series mirrorless cameras. Trust us; we tested them out as we love their cameras. The Lucky Strap is perfect regardless of using a EOS DSLR body such as the 5D Mark IV or the latest EOS mirrorless R5. Attaching the neck strap to the body lugs takes moments, and with a quick turn of the lock, it is not going anywhere.
If you are working in a studio setting and want to detach the strap quickly so you can attach your DSLR or mirrorless camera to a tripod plate, the quick attachment system is fast and effective. Or, if you are out in the field and want to swap from a heavy-duty shoulder strap to a lightweight wrist strap like the Simple 20 in Tan, it's simple.
The 2021 Lucky Quick Release system is installed on our entire range of straps. That range provides you with a vast range of strap sizes and colours. What's more, you can opt for a wrist or shoulder strap in gorgeous leather. To complete your Lucky camera strap, opt for our customised embossing with coloured foil. You can emboss your name, initials or get your photography business logo embossed on your strap.
For photographers like us that love to shoot with the EOS R5 or 5D Mark IV, we recommend the Standard 53 in Vintage Wine and Black. The Standard 53 strap features high-quality leather with black on the outside and wine coloured staining on the inside. These colours compliment the style and colour scheme of every EOS DSLR or mirrorless body and lens. Take it to the next level with custom embossing of the EOS model with red foil.
Check out the video below to see how easy it is to attach and detach a hand-made strap from cameras like the EOS RP, EOS R5 and 5D mk IV. Keep in mind that the same Lucky straps with the fast attachment system are just as compatible with Sony, Nikon, Fujifilm, Panasonic and Leica cameras.
QUICK RELEASE SYSTEM REVIEWS
Lucky have received global attention thanks to a state of the art connector that fits perfectly to your DSLR or mirrorless body. We call it Lucky's Holy Grail of all camera straps. Stylish, versatile and safe. But don't take our word for it - listen to some of the most respected photographers in the industry. They've had the chance to test and work with Lucky featuring our quick attachment system. They love the results of using the system in their photography workflow.
Russel Ord is a highly respected Australian photographer with abundant experience, superior technical knowledge and gregarious nature. He is one of the world's most recognised professional surf photographers. Listen to what Russell has to say about Lucky premium leather straps featuring the quick attachment system.
"The Lucky Straps still have the Lucky Straps look - you know, hand-made straps and pretty much made to fit anyone. The safety lock gives you peace of mind that your cameras are safe and there are no accidental disconnections. The new clips don't need any add-ons or dongles on the camera, making the strap universal. I change it between my camera systems, and it's super versatile. The straps are just perfect for all that I do, from shooting lifestyle, adventure and going from that to putting your camera into a water housing. The quick release for me is the perfect setup."
CHELSEA NORTHRUP and TONY NORTHRUP
Chelsea and Tony Northrup are leading YouTubers with a following of over 1.4 million. Their insight into photography gear has been valuable for beginners and professionals alike. After receiving a quick connection Lucky Strap and using it for two months, Chelsea had this to say to her massive audience:
"I get a lot of straps sent to me, and I usually turn them away because I like something pretty simplistic. But something really cool about the Lucky Strap is that it comes with this little quick release feature. It has a little locking mechanism and a loop that makes it easier to take your strap on and off when you want without it coming off accidentally. I also like the quality of the leather."
WHO IS A LUCKY STRAP FOR?
STREET PHOTOGRAPHERS CAN KEEP THINGS LIGHTWEIGHT AND UNBRANDED
If you love street photography, you don’t need to search any longer as a Lucky strap is ideal for stealthy action. Branded straps stick out like a sore thumb, and as a result, it's tough to be a street photography ninja with one on your kit. Lucky are minimal, unbranded and blend in with your street clothes. If you're sporting a more compact mirrorless or rangefinder style film camera, a lightweight and narrow Lucky camera strap is your best bet.
For over the shoulder action, opt for the Lucky Straps Simple 20 strap. It is available in three lengths and features our fast attachment system. For those street shooters that prefer a wrist strap, the Lucky Straps Simple 20 Wrist strap is the way to go. Both are available in a range of finishes, and of course, you can opt for total customisation.
IT'S THE BEST SECURITY FOR TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHERS
When travelling and exploring a new city in or a distant continent in 2021, comfort, portability and safety are paramount. Kicking off with comfort, carrying bulky gear all day can be a pain. If you just want to be free to explore unhindered, drop a Lucky strap with quick connection onto your main body.
Challenge yourself by only carrying a single lens and a spare battery in your pocket. The only piece of kit you’ll need is a phone with Google Maps. The Lucky Straps Standard 53 is broad, durable, and super comfortable to wear all day long for larger kits. What's more, its anti-theft features will ensure that your gear stays attached to your straps at all times. No one can remove it or cut through it thanks to the slash-proof webbing.
STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHERS CAN FIND THE RIGHT FIT AND BRANDING
Being in the studio requires both hands. The team at Lucky have thought about this, which is why our straps feature such comfy adjustable straps. Studio users can adjust the system so that their camera sits tightly by their side and doesn't bounce around when moving about.
Plus, to keep with your branding, we allow complete customisation of each logo, so your strap becomes a centrepiece when talking with clients. A great option for studio work is the Lucky Straps Simple 40. It is comfortable and lightweight, available in two lengths, a range of finishes, and features the Lucky quick attachment and anti-theft system.
NOSTALGIC CAMERA STRAPS FOR THE FILM PHOTOGRAPHER
Here at Lucky, we love analogue film photography and shooting with classic 35mm and 120 cameras. Leather straps look gorgeous when paired with an analogue film camera as it adds to the retro charm of the kit. If you're shooting with a rangefinder-style film camera such as a Leica, you cannot go past the Lucky Slim 30. It comes in a range of finishes, including the stunning Antique Brown or Classic Chestnut Brown.
If you are shooting with a 120 camera in 2021, you will need a specialist strap that can support the body's weight. The strap we recommend is the Simple 40, available in two lengths and comes in Cognac, Tan or Black. These wider straps are ideal for Fuji, Yashica, Mamiya and Pentax rangefinder and 120 models. Don't forget to add custom embossing to celebrate your love of shooting with medium format film.
CAMERA STRAPS THAT MEET THE DEMANDS OF VLOGGERS AND VIDEOGRAPHERS
Visual creatives such as vloggers and videographers love the flexibility and comfort of a Lucky camera strap. For those that vlog their travels and daily adventures, having a comfortable and secure strap is essential. For vloggers that prefer handheld shooting at arm's length, the Wrist Strap will support a mirrorless or DSLR camera fitted with a wide-angle lens. It's available in a range of leather finishes, but our favourite is the black and wine variant for its modern style.
Videographers are often on the move and shift their shooting style from handheld to tripod, to gimbal and back again. The Lucky Straps Quick Release system, as found on the Standard 53, provides absolute flexibility. Our quick release technology allows videographers to quickly remove the strap so they can attach their camera to a gimbal or rig.
COMFORT AND PEACE OF MIND WHEN OUT IN THE WILD
Landscape photographers often carry a lot of gear - cameras, lenses, filters, and tripods, to name a few essential items. And when working with ever-changing light, the need to set up and capture the best shot in a matter of moments is guaranteed. For optimal support carrying a DSLR and wide-angle lens on a nature trail, you need a broad and comfortable leather camera strap such as the Simple 40. Lucky Strap leather camera straps are comfortable and won't cause fatigue or back pain when worn over the shoulder. What's more, the quick release system allows you to quickly remove the strap from the camera to mount it to a tripod.
PERFECT FOR HOLDING LONGER LENSES FOR WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY
The same need for ultimate comfort and peace of mind exists for wildlife photographers who carry the heaviest gear of all. Consider a DSLR or full-frame mirrorless camera with a 300mm or 600mm super-telephoto lens. It’s heavy and expensive and deserves the best support system around. There's no point carrying that combo in your backpack as you'll likely miss the shot of the day. Instead, with a broad, comfortable and robust Luck Straps Standard 53 (also available in rich cotton), you are sure to capture that winning wildlife shot.
ULTIMATE COMFORT PLUS SECURITY FOR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS AND VIDEOGRAPHERS
Wedding photographers are constantly juggling two cameras. With long shooting days being the norm, an uncomfortable strap can easily dig into the neck or become a hassle of entanglement. Wedding photographers and videographers abide by their choice when it comes to Lucky. The quick connection system is capable of moving from one body to the next with ease while maintaining the greatest lock security, so there are no accidental falls from ill tied inferior camera straps.
Wedding photographers sporting a pair of larger DSLR bodies should grab a pair of Lucky Standard 53. The broad and comfortable straps are ready for you in a range of stylish colours and finishes. Plus, all that leather real estate is ideal for embossing your wedding photography business logo.
