Over the past few weeks I've had a go at making my own camera strap. I've always hated over-the-neck straps that attach to the top of the camera. They always get in the way. There are other straps starting to attach to the bottom of the camera, on the tripod mount. That's smart. So I did that.
So here it is in all of its glory. The first video is of me wearing the strap and jumping around like an idiot. The second is a more detailed look at the strap and how I've attached it to the camera.
I made a mistake in this video. The strap is 1500mm long NOT 150mm. That would be absurd.
Update: I've decided to stop making and selling these straps as Black Rapid has blown me away with their ConnectR-2 and FastenR-2. Seriously, these two products are insanely nice and well built. Kudos to them for stepping it up.
I still use my own over the shoulder strap. It can be found and bought at mec.ca
