Q & A
#1 If I have a small digital camera what kind of chain is best?
YES! SFK ships everywhere in the world, wherever you are.
#4 Are SFK chains comfortable and safe?
Yes! They are made of high quality materials and when attached properly are a super safe and durable way to carry your camera over your shoulder or around your neck comfortably. The Super Deluxe are best for cameras that weigh more than 2lbs and the Deluxe and Classic styles are best for smaller digital cameras and point and shoots. For instructions on how to attach your SFK Camera Chain see here: http://sarahfranceskuhn.blogspot.com/2010/06/sfk-custom-camera-straps.html
#5 Will it scratch my camera lense?
This is common concern but this has never been reported to have happened and if you are careful and apply the lense cap when not using your camera, it should be fine! The straps are more sturdy than most generic ones.
#6 How do I order one?
You can place an order through the paypal buttons or email me: email@example.com

The NYTimes explains the images here...apparently the first one to create this image was photographer Melvin Sokolsky! http://tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/03/01/behind-the-cover-salma-hayek/?ref=womens-fashion
Josephine Meckseper's Pyromaniac 2, 2002.
Picasso famously said that "good artists borrow, great artists steal..."
A great artist surely must know the difference between stealing another artist's idea and making it their own and taking another's idea and calling it their own.
George Condo is a great example of an artist that successfully takes ideas from painters and movements through-out the ages to create something original.
An example of obvious copying though is more apparent on the current cover of the NY Times Magazine. The image of Salma Hayek is a rip-off of an image by artist Josephine Meckseper called Pyromaniac 2 from 2002.
