With every new camera you purchase you’re going to get a camera strap. It’ll be functional, maybe moderately stylish – but is it the best one for you?
For more than 20 years, I’ve swapped out the factory straps for aftermarket ones, usually Domke Gripper Straps. Reader Roxanne Evans, though, sent me some info on a newer style of strap from Black Rapid. Take a look.
As noted, with one camera and a moderately sized lens this is a great option. It feels very natural and it keeps the camera out of the way if you’re moving though crowds. Check the Black Rapid web site for their other straps and solutions, as well as for some demonstration videos.
If you’ve got a tip, if you’ve got a trick, if you’ve got a widget, if you’ve got a gadget that you think everybody else in the industry should know about, send me some information on it and I’ll get it out there.
