Evris Papanikolas’s Rock & Roll straps are now so popular in the photographic world that it’s difficult to believe that the company is just five years old. But it is, and to celebrate the occasion, there’s a 25%-off sale if you visit the website. It’s a good opportunity to get a new strap for your camera ready for the heady days of post-lockdown.
The past five years have flown for me and I can well remember the day in early 2015 when I first came across Evris’s prototype camera straps in the store of Greece’s Leica dealer and importer, Skiadopoulos. I soon became friends with both Evris and Spiros Skoadopoulos, who also runs the flourishing (but independent of Leica) Leica Akademie Greece in Athens. After all this, I definitely have a soft spot for Rock n’ Roll straps, especially for wide leather-link designs which go so well with the Leica SL and SL2.
