    Default Best kept secret in photography

    To wear a camera like this around your neck is Si Beh cool.

    It will attract many admiring glances in Singapore.

    It makes you more pro than pro and an old-world shooter.

    It is more than a fashion statement

    It tells the world that you're a serious and real photographer.

    If you know how to ride the invisible horse to your photo shoot, it will save you lots of transportation cost

    When you went out for photo shoot, remember to bring your own toilet paper so that you will not get stuck in toilet

    Yes..since camera is getting cheap these day..They also becoming a fashion statement. Hang 1 around your neck and walk up and down the streets of orchard (or anywhere). Oh..and dont buy or bring a camera bag too. So its forever on your neck so everyone can see.

    depends on what lens. If it's a $10k+ 500mm attached to the dslr, then the answer is YES. Must hang it permanently around the neck!

    Only the 1200mmL is worth hanging around a (strong) neck.

    Such a long cannon may be better to hang in the front around the waist.
