neckstrap to me is impt if u need to change lenses in all kinds of conditions in a few seconds..
combined with a slingbag..u can hang ur strap ard ur neck & swap lenses instantly..
for people who don't need to swap so fast a handstrap would be better..
for those pros...well..they use two bodies hahaha...
the 9th pics..
one thing is the cam will not be horizontally straight. cos of the diff set of tying the straps to the cam and the base of the wristgrip.
but it certain lighten my cam load and i have better grip....my hands always shaken when i carry the cam too long (during focusing)...me char=bor..no strength.
I tried a wrist grip, but din like as it hinders my fingers' movement to access the control buttons and slows me down when I need to change lens.
So it's camera straps on both my cameras for me.
I'm using a similar matin as to lotusfairy.---ur garfield is big!
Lotusfairy, have you tried the martin for shoulderbag? Its really effective!
Standard OM's is really taxing on the neck
This is a very nice thread about neckstrap.
I checked the optech in J3:16, and Matin in TCW.
And Matin is better.
Matin has quick disconnect (joint)
I bought mine in Perly, it is cheaper there.
Yes, I do use a neckstrap and its brand is optech.
I use neckstrap so that the camera body can hang free when I change lens.
Sometimes I use two camera bodies when shooting, so I need the neckstrap to hang the body.
I have gone from 2-point mount to 1-point mount so that the strap does not get in the way when I bring it up to the "fire" position.
I've never used a strap with my 30D since getting it in November.
my 300D never uses a strap either, straps always get in the way
however, I wouldn't mind getting a handstrap! they feel secure!
Yeah yeah yeah..My answer is yeah..Hmm..sometimes when you tired..should hang the cam somewhere mah..dont think we can just hold the cam for like 4-5 hours...hmm.somebody has even 2 cam for shooting event....then..how to carry both 2...
A person is useless unless he is standing up for himself, for his future, and for his dreams.
