For many action photographers in the field of sports, nature or reportage, the camera with zoom or telephoto lens needs to be instantly available to take the right shot at any moment, but has to be retained to prevent it swinging or banging against you, your car or other objects on the move.
One of America's premier nature photographers, Dewitt Jones, devised the Dewitt Jones Chest Strap, produced and marketed exclusively by Lowepro.
Made from fully adjustable elasticised webbing, the Dewitt Jones Chest Strap wraps around the ribcage. With the camera held around the neck on a conventional camera strap, two wraps fitted with hook and loop material capture and stabilize the telephoto or zoom lens while you walk or hike. To take a shot, the wraps are simply undone.
The Dewitt Jones Chest Strap adjusts to accommodate all chest sizes from 22 to 60inches.
