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.
