I’m one of those people who struggles with camera straps. I just can’t get comfortable with them. The weight of the camera around my neck is bad enough, but what frustrates me more is that it’s impossible to move – at all – without actually holding the camera. If I dare lean forwards the camera will invariably swing out into a hard obstacle, and if try walking it’ll swing about in what I can only assume is a desperate attempt for independence.
So, I have to hold the camera. What’s the strap for? Standing still.
