Tired of your neck strap? Don't like the camera bouncing against your chest while out and about? I learned about a shoulder sling strap by BlackRapid from coach Hudson Henry in an online course I'm taking at On1. The Black Rapid shoulder sling really intrigued me, but I found it a bit too pricey. An alternative-USA Gear TrueSHOT Crossbody Quick Release Camera Shoulder Sling under $20 on Amazon. The benefits for me: *Much lower price *Mount permits tripod mount *Safety strap *Battery + SD card pockets
We have the E-Bay/Chinese copies of the Black Rapid slings and we really like them.
We have a couple of the single camera slings and also a couple of the double camera harnesses.
We paid like maybe $10 apiece for the single rigs and less than $20 for the doubles.
Regardless of the brand, I do not trust the plastic clips/keepers that hold the straps together; so, I make sure that the length adjustment is what I want and then use strong nylon upholstery thread to sew the straps solidly together.
I have been intending to make up a batch of these straps out of genuine harness leather and dress them up with tooling and silver conchos; alas, my Menonite leather supplier up and relocated out of the state, so I need to find another supplier.

On a poverty-level Kentucky budget, a 24-exposure roll of film would have two Christmases and a summer vacation on it and we might have to wait another six months before being able to afford developing the film.
I still have trouble remembering that it doesn't cost anything to take thousands of pictures; it just almost seems impossible to be true.
That would be much more comfortable than a neck strap - especially if you have one of the heavier cameras. Weight is one of the reasons I have kept to a small p&s that fits in my pocket - the other being, I'm a lousy photographer. LOL
