My favourite strap
December 29, 2016
I admit that I have spent too much money on camera straps. I discard the advertising strap that comes with the camera, because I have been robbed of cameras and such straps tell criminals where to look. I have tried slings, good but not a nice fit. I have tried waist belt systems, finicky and produce low back pain. I have tried wide padded straps, slippery and uncomfortable. Finally I went with the strap first introduced to me by my friend Bryan (he has since moved on to a Cotton Carrier system - I cannot use them myself) and the same strap used by the great Joe McNally. The Think Tank strap is narrow, so it is unobtrusive. It is soft and comfortable, even with heavier gear. It allows me to put the camera strap over my shoulder and have no slippage, and to use the strap like a rifle sling for stability. I add Peak Design connectors and anchors to make it fast removable when I am in the studio but most won't need to do this.
I have put these straps on every camera I own, other than the Sinar, because they make working in the field so simple. I even have one on my CINE camera to ease carrying it from shot location to shot location without fear of it sliding off my shoulder.
In my opinion, these are the best camera straps out there.
