. . . I wouldn't even consider using one of those.

Your camera wouldn't last two minutes on the London Underground

Quote:If worried about buckle popping open


The cameras held by the grip, not the strap, the strap is just there to stop the camera hitting the deck if it slips or is knocked from the hand.

Just thought I`d show you all a simple bit of recycling, and it takes only seconds to detach and re-attach the neck strap.

I find these very handy

Quote:Like this, Seen one used but my consern would be that it gets jolted alot when moving around, that is not based on experience tho and it can be removed without you knowing. the black rapid still has the strap round you and cam be used comfortably


No not that one. The one he had was just a strap that looped on a belt with a Tripod Bolt on the other end.

I was referring specifically to the 'Spider holster.'

Yeh just realised.


Quote:it's very basic but you can tighten it via a sliding plastic collar, around your wrist. It won't break or come undone and you can hold the camera in just about any orientation.
Yours would be a lot more comfortable though



Its basically what I`ve put together, but using a heaver duty dslr should strap that I am unlikely to ever use again Smile

It's a good idea Paul and if there was such a thing on the market, I'd probably find a use for one on occasions.
At the moment, I carry my camera by my right hand side, upside down using a 'strap buddy' screwed into the tripod hole. It's secure enough to prevent a thief from unscrewing it without my knowing and the camera's easily picked up if I want to use it.

i saw a karl taylor video on improvising DSLR wet weather covers, for any dog lovers i have the perfect solution for a wet weather cover, involves those ten rawhide chew bones you get from pets at home, the thick plastic cover makes a great all weather cover and is totally transparent, hard wearing and strechable, you can cut a hole just a bit smaller than the lens you are using and it fits brilliantly, nothing to do with straps though, but it popped in there after reading the comments above,
blue peter badge for Paul BTW well done Smile i'd show you a photo of it on but i only have the one camera Smile

Quote:I'd say that strap is a handy piece of improvisation. Must admit that somebody's got to invent an improved neck strap. Even a good neoprene one hurts after a while.


have you seen the harnesses you put it on like a ruck sack camera hangs from the front, , no neck pain, Smile anyone tried them ?

Surely the idea of BDSM is to cause pain?? Wink or have i got it wrong?

Sorry I have no expertise in that area. I'll have to rely on your experience Wink
