It’s well known in the industry that Canon and Nikon makes great cameras. Everyone also knows neither company makes great camera straps. The strap that these vendors provide in-the-box are stiff and serve one purpose — to make you look like a tourist. Oh, and to produce a horrible back and neck ache after prolonged use. Thank goodness for the Spider Pro Hand Strap – relief is on the way.
Most professional photographers rarely use the camera strap that comes in the box. Straps such as the Joby Sling Strap for women or Black Rapid are popular amongst the pros. Both are great straps for general use, street photography and hiking and most of all they distribute the weight of the camera over prolonged use. These straps attach by screwing them to the DSLR tripod mount.
For photographers who don’t care for neck or shoulder straps another solution is available that allows you to easily attach a DSLR to a tripod as well as comfortably carry when not mounted to the tripod. Check out the Spider Pro Camera Holster and Hand Strap solution.
