Which camera strap should I buy?
QI’ve been a keen photographer for a while now and have got to the point where I end up taking my camera everywhere with me so that I never miss a shot. I often wear my camera – a Sony Alpha 7 II – just with the strap, rather than putting it in a bag. I only have the original camera strap and was wondering if you can recommend something more comfortable and secure for wearing the camera for long periods of time? I’m happy to spend up to £70 to get the right camera strap. Alan Stennett
AIt is very important to find the right camera strap for you, as the right strap can make the difference between wanting the camera at your side or deciding to leave it at home or in the car. However good the specification and reviews of a strap are, it is important to remember that every human body is different so if you can, visit one of our Wex Photo Video stores to find your perfect fit. For comfort and ease of use, we would recommend the BlackRapid Curve Breathe. This strap has a wide and comfortable shoulder pad which is made of moisture wicking mesh and foam to ensure your comfort even when it’s getting a little warm. It is worth keeping in mind that this cross-body strap works best for right-handed photographers.
