Sometimes finding a good photography gift idea is not the easiest thing to do. After all, what can you get a photographer that they don’t already have? An SLR camera harness is actually an option you might want to consider. The reason for this is that many people – photographers included – do not even know what an SLR camera harness is.
You see, every professional photographer (and even many novices) own an SLR camera. These are the heavy duty, heavy cameras that are used to take high quality ipctures. They are often very expensive and definitely much heavier than digital cameras. This is the reason that no photographer – professional or novice – should carry them around with a generic neckstrap. A harness is a much better design for the SLR style because it distributes the weight of the device across the shoulders, chest and back instead of focusing it all on the neck.
This will be very useful to the photographer in your life whom you’d like to make feel special. They will most likely be very surprised as mentioned earlier because many have never even heard of this useful accessory before. If more photographers knew of the SLR camera harness, more would be wearing them instead of a camera neck strap. So there you have it. It’s a great gift idea for any occasion and will undoubtedly serve as a great reminder that you care about your recipient.
Those of us who have a real interest in photography – many of us are even professionals – we spend a lot on our cameras. This doesn’t leave much in the way of funds leftover for accessories. That’s why it’s a good idea to be sure to find the least expensive accessories as possible. Included in with that is a camera neck strap. The trouble is that not everyone knows how to do that. That’s where this article comes in to play.
First, a great way to get a good deal on a camera neck strap is to check different places’ prices. Not every store will sell the same item for the same amount. Most likely you will find several varying price tags. By educating yourself on what the different prices are, you will know what is reasonable and what is not.
Another great way to get a good deal on camera neck straps is to get online. You can do a web search for camera harness discounts and you will most likely pull up coupon codes as well as inexpensively priced straps on the first page. There is no reason to pay more for a camera neck strap than you need to. So do your research and find yourself a high quality camera harness at a fair and even good price for you. If you do that, you will have more in your funds to pay for other camera accessories too.
No one likes to use painful camera neck straps. In the earlier days, dealing with neck pain from camera straps was inevitable. These days it is no longer necessary. Why? Because there are alternative solutions to carrying your camera. You didn’t think we would expect you to carry your camera by hand, did you? That would just be silly.
The fact of the matter is that there are now comfortable camera neck straps because they do not even touch your neck. Instead, the straps that we recommend wrap around your shoulders. It’s the difference between carrying a backpack with two shoulder straps or a weight that hangs only from the neck. The shoulder straps even out the weight and therefore take all the strain completely off of your neck; thus, camera neck straps that do not cause pain!
The two devices serve exactly the same function in slightly different ways. Your camera will be carried with you and you will still be hands free either way you do it. Using camera neck straps that do not touch your neck, also known as camera harnesses, will simply eliminate the familiar pain you are used to feeling at the end of every camera-toting day. Now those are some pretty cool camera straps if you ask me.
