For 8 years we’ve been putting our camera straps on the wrong way. Start the embarrassment….now.
Yes, there is indeed a right way and a wrong way to put on your camera strap. The wrong way can be pulled open, resulting in your shiny fancy camera meeting the floor at a rapid speed.
The right way is super secure (even with strong huffing and puffing, which I kindly demonstrate for you in the video below) and will ensure safety for your precious gear. And it is only ever-so-slightly different than the wrong way! Go figure!
After discovering this gem of wisdom, we created this video for you so you can make sure you’re doing it the right way. Have a watch now! I’ll even show you precisely why the wrong way is wrong!
Now tell us in the comments, what kind of strap are you using for your camera? What do you find most comfortable? We’re always interested in better ways to lug around these heavy contraptions, so we would love your advice!
