Strap off

[The date of this equipment related post was changed to push it to the start of the blog]

I bought a great new camera wrist strap. I realized that neck straps "aren't for me". To me, it feels awkward carrying a heavy camera around my neck. I find that the long strap is dangling awkwardly otherwise, or hanging out of my camera bag, or wrapped around my wrist anyhow. I also think wrist straps are incrementally cooler. Mine has skulls and hearts on it - to both scare little kids and show my sensitive side.

I got mine online at Phat Straps ( They are hand-made and can be made with custom designs and embroidery. These are sturdy, convenient, well-made straps. They also carry custom neck-straps, and are now carrying kits with lens cozies also (who like's a cold lens). I have no affiliation with the site, but I will gladly recommend a great product.
