Stand out with PhatStraps! #CanonCanada #giveaway

For years my DSLR looked like every other with it’s generic black branded strap. At gatherings, like weddings and dinners, I’d lay my camera down on a table and then hesitated when I went to pick it up. Many camera with the same black branded strap would collect in the area. 

The last straw was when we were on one specific vacation and the temperatures soared to a billion degrees {small exageration}. I, of course being photo-obsessed-me, had carried around my professional level DSLR complete with battery pack and external flash, all day long.

My neck was so sore, yes partially with the weight, but also from the constant rubbing on my neck. This was caused from the continual switching of the camera from messenger-style to the front position for use. 

Soon thereafter my husband bought me my very first custom camera strap, and I have to admit, it’s still one of the best gifts I’d ever been given.

For once, my camera stood out, it’s wasn’t again lost in the shuffle of likeness. Another huge bonus was the comfort this strap provided. Why did it take me so long?!

Flash Forward: Last Fall I received a fantastic new DSLR, the Canon EOS Rebel SL1, from Canon Canada. I have since captured many wonderful memories of travel, the kids, holidays, ordinary moments and more. 


There’s no doubt that I use my new precious often, as evidenced by my photos here on My Organized Chaos, my Month in Photos for one example. The Canon EOS Rebel SL1 even came with my daughter and I on our Mother/Daughter trip to Jamaica

Thanks to Canon Canada, there’s now a pretty new PhatStraps on my Canon EOS Rebel SL1, to come with us on lifes adventures.

These customized straps are even sold right at the Canon Canada e-store!


PhatStraps come in a variety of patterns, and I chose the Sea Breeze strap. The pattern colours remind of vacation, the style suits my personality so well. So simple to attach to the camera, these are sturdy yet soft and comfortable.

Plus, there’s different yet similar styles on each side of the strap. On my Sea Breeze one, there’s stripes and dots on one side and complimentary flowers on the other. Simple and generic, no more!


Best of all, PhatStraps so generous in length that I can still carry my camera messenger-style. With a few minor adjustments on the straps, you can have it shorter if desired. 

For yourself or anyone that ever holds a camera in their hand, they need a PhatStraps!
