Things JCH likes
Every now and again the universe comes together and I get a whole load of lovely things in the post at just the right time. This just happens to be one of those times. So here are a few of the things that JCH likes right now.

I get a lot of things through the post. Mainly books and zines (which are always welcome), sometimes prints too (which are definitely welcome) and all sorts of lovely products too. This is what I am digging at the moment.

Patches and stickers from Asilda Store

Anastasia Petukhova runs the very cool Asilda Store, as well as a blog which featured an interview with me recently. Selling nothing more than these cool patches and stickers. I love the design on these and I have already slapped a couple on my bags. If you want to support this small store you can either take a look to your right (no, the other right) and click on the lovely little advert. Or you can follow this link

Harry Benz Straps

Harry has shared his straps with us before, with the stunning and extremely durable Urushii strap. Now he has some new tricks up his sleeve, with a very nice wrist strap and a really innovative idea to replace the neck pad. I shall be doing a fully review on these after a stop of testing. Check out Harry’s other products at

Grade Select Goods

Ray over at Grade Select is the man. He is always sending me cool stuff, and I love wearing and sharing it. T-shirts, hats, and stickers. And now some oversize stickers for you all. Get them before they are all gone

What I love about all of these guys is that they are all independent entrepreneurs who are showing their love for what they do and their passion in their products. Which is what I strive to do as well. Check out their stuff and show your support.

Oh, and I have figuratively got a ton of straps/stickers/shirts/assorted stuff in the office. So, here is the deal. I shall be giving some of it away to people who make an order in my shop or buy a camera through me. It will be at random, the lucky ones will find something extra in the box.

    Man that wrist strap is ugly. Urushii neck strap looks pretty spiffy though.

      Wow, that’s pretty rude. What could be worse for this guy to hear than a comment like that. It might not be for everyone but, please.
      Love your airplane shots, Anastasia. I’ll make sure to get som patches soon!

    This type of wrist strap is actually very practical because it is loose when in use, so it does not press on wrist or cause sweating, but tightens quickly if the camera is about to drop. Other straps are either too loose all the time or have a little knob to tighten them and then they are tight all the time. But the length needs to be about right for it to work well.

      This wrist strap, La Cravate, is completely different than anything else out there. Its ‘mechanism’ (in lieu of a better word) is purely friction based. No matter whether you set the loop wide or tight, it stays exactly where you put it. No knobs, rings or other gimmicks needed.
      Also, La Cravate is supposed to be a little longer than common wrist straps. This way one doesn’t need to take it off when reloading film or switching SD cards or batteries. – What good does a strap do when you’re not wearing it?
      Besides, in comes in 3 different sizes, small, medium and large, and instructions on how to choose the best size for oneself.

    I checked out Asilda’s stickers a while back and, while I like the idea very much, they’re too large for my taste. Smaller versions would be nice.
