Hey Photo Friends!

I'm looking for comfy neck straps for single cameras and double camera carrying systems.

Please share your great advice!

Thank you!

Look for the kind that has a wide section that can be adjusted along the strap length. If the wide slider has ridges @ grooves it might help steadying. The extra width would distribute the weight.

How heavy a camera will this hold?


I had a T12 canon with a 70 300 an other lense. Never a problem.

Whatever you get, make sure it's a wide one. The wider it is, the less pressure there is.

Suggest check out the BosStrap site. I got the wider one, no padding, but not needed. It is cross body, and being right handed, I followed the recommended adjustment so that the camera rests just at my right hand. It is a slider strap, and it connects in the left hand strap lug, so that I can keep a quick mount in the tripod socket. Very handy, and takes almost no room when you case the camera. Good luck with your choice. JR
