I know this is off topic bit, but we all (well most of us) use straps on our cameras. Last week while in Hong Kong a participant in my No Jet Lag Photo Workshop I was introduced to a near perfect camera strap. It is not often I get excited over something as trivial as a camera strap, but I have been using the Domke 1" Gripper Strap well over half of my life on my bodies and I don’t do well with change………so to switch something as a trivial strap is huge for me.
The new straps are the PacSafe CarrySafe 100 straps. What makes them so great? They are slash-proof, so when you are out and about on the streets a thief can’t walk up behind you, slash your strap (it happens more often than you think) and steal your camera in a split-second. These straps can also be clipped on to a table leg, or a chair back while you are eating dinner and they can’t be cut and walked off with. The slim, light weight, flexible design is great. I had never liked any strap with a pad before, but this straps pad stays out of the way and takes some of the load off which is fantastic!
I wrote the strap up on my blog,http://www.flyingwithfish.com , in detail. This entry also has photos of the strap and the strap side by side with the popular classic, Domke 1" Gripper. You can read the entry here:
