When you’re lucky enough to get your hands on a brand-spanking new dSLR camera you also get a perfectly good camera strap. Camera manufacturers though, not satisfied with the hundreds of pounds you’ve already shelled out to purchase their hardware would also like you to be a walking advert for them – perhaps in the hope you’ll get mugged and have to buy another camera. Who knows.
Anways, the day I received my Canon 5D MkII I was (unsurprisingly) extremely impatient to go out and start shooting with it RIGHT AWAY so I just hooked up the enclosed strap and did just that. “I’ll get a new funky camera strap soon though” I said to myself.
Over two years later and guess what? (That’s rhetorical – we all know the answer). I HAVE been looking around though and have whittled down the contenders to these:
Rainbow stripe camera strap £14.99
Seat belt camera strap $22.95
Fabric camera strap $27.00
I can’t decide! What’s yours like, is it nice?
