Occasionally I see photographers using their right elbows and shoulders to hold the camera strap while taking a picture. I understand this helps to steady the camera?

Can someone describe the technique, preferably with some pictures to illustrate? When I try it, the strap keeps sliding down. I generally use my camera strap the tourist way (round my neck), but sometimes must try to look a bit more professional, lah.

Thanks!

The Original Canon Camera Strap for D30 SUCKS big time.

I bought a OP/TECH USA Strap to replace it.

last time my instructor taught me how to tie the rifle sling to the shoulder and use it for support, but i dun think that applies to camera cos the shape is quite different

Hi, I find the original strap quite acceptable for me.
Can you tell what's wrong with it?

Also I would like to know what advantages the OP/TECH strap has, and how much it cost you.

Thanks.

Also, can anyone answer my original question?
