Your neck and shoulder hate photography.
Why? Because they know they’re gonna get yanked, strained and dug into by that uncomfy torture device known as a camera strap.
Make a truce! Here’s how: The Split Strap, the comfiest strap we’ve found yet.
Everything about this strap is designed to fit the anatomical needs of your body: a smart slit at the strap’s center ergonomically contours to your neck and shoulder!
The neoprene shoulder piece absorbs shock, weighs close to nothing, and is super breathable. Plus, 2 rotating heads at the base of the neckpiece give you a full range of motion.

Instead of giving your photos an acupuncture session (pins=ouch), try a kinder option.
With a gentle grip, these hip 2″ silicone dots sit flat on your desk, holding your prints upright for a clean and colorful display.

Your typical film roll will hold 12, 24, or a whopping 36 exposures.
What if we told you we managed to get 1,000 photos all onto one roll?
True story! The USB Film Roll is a 4GB USB drive cleverly dressed up in a recycled film canister.
Instead of getting tossed, these canisters get to fulfill their photo geek destiny by metamorphosing into glorious photo file-holding gizmos.

Our Rare Film Gift Pack is back, rarer and filmier than ever!
In your pack, you’ll get 3 hard-to-find, imported 35mm films:
One high-speed color film, one sepia-toned monochrome, and a whole new film, the Revolog Kolor 400 film.
This rainbowlicious film came to be when a couple of photo students “hacked” their own film by carefully unraveling each roll and pre-exposing their film to colored lights (and yes, they’re totally just as cool as the kids in the movie Hackers).
It’s a dreamy roll that adds a gorgeous range of pink, green, blue, and yellow hues to every shot!
Half b-days, quarter b-days…who says you have to wait for your actual birthday to get yourself a gift?
$49 per Gift Pack at the Photojojo Shop
