Gitzo is a name every photographer is familiar with, as it's a trusted maker of all manner of camera accessories.
Now, Gitzo has introduced an addition to its range: the Gitzo Century camera strap collection, describing it as "a premium modular system that complements the Gitzo Century camera bags range, the camera strap collection is the accessory of choice for the most discerning professional rangefinder & premium CSC and mirrorless camera users."
Like most of Gitzo's products (as well as those of Manfrotto, its companion brand) this range was designed in Italy, emphasising its heritage by using Italian leather and an exclusive carbon-fibre look reminiscent of Gitzo's tripod legs.
