Maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks. I hate camera straps, they seem to always be in the way and so more often than not, I end up ditching them. Instead, I end up carrying the camera by the body or by the tripod foot when using larger lenses. I should say, I used to hate straps, until I finally used a BlackRapid Sport and in this quick review we will discuss the advantages of this strap.
The reason I didn’t use straps was simple, I didn’t like them. I didn’t like them because they usually weren’t comfortable. When used straight around the neck, the strap tended to pull and give me a neck ache. Another reason for my disdain of straps was that If you placed the strap over your head and onto your opposite shoulder, it would be more comfortable but it was hard to bring the camera up to your eye to shoot.
