Digital Cameras, especially DSLRs is one piece of expensive equipment we tend to carry around more often. It would be a nightmare if I loose my camera when some street thieves would slash through my strap and run off with my camera on a motorbike or loose my camera from fall from weak strap connectors. I know the chances are slim but I actually know people who experienced this horror stories so I’m a bit paranoid with my gears. I also don’t like using my default camera strap since I don’t like the brand name screaming (not that I didn’t love the brand) on it and I just didn’t find them comfortable in the long run especially if you have a heavy camera. It’s a good thing there are third party camera straps available from manufacturers like Crumpler, Kata and Tamrac, OP/Tech but my favorite among them is PacSafe’s CarrySafe 100 strap.
