There are several female photographers out there. They have need for the use of a camera chest harness just as male photographers do. Yet, because of they are women, they often believe they are not capable of wearing a chest harness accessory for cameras. This is a common misconception that should be corrected right away. Female photographers can absolutely wear a harness around the chest just as male photographers can.
Not only does the camera chest harness work for women but it works wonderfully well. There is no extreme discomfort given the accommodating shape and design of the straps. They are set out wide on the shoulders so as to avoid the front of the chest. They also make it seem that the equipment is much lighter than it really is by spreading out the weight. Thanks to its unique design and efficient function, the camera body harness is a friend to all photographers, regardless of their gender.
Do not be fooled into thinking, though, that they do not work for all ages. Some believe that it only works for those who are in their middle ages of 20′s, 30′s and 40′s. The wonderful thing about the camera chest harness is the fact that it works for children and the elderly just as well as it works for the middle ages. It is truly universal in absolutely every way. It is designed to work great for every person, every gender and even every size. One could be obese or underweight and they would still be able to adjust the straps so that it would work well for them. Indeed, the camera chest harness is a strapping system that would truly work for all.
The camera body harness works because it takes out the one element that makes most generic neck straps not work: the neck. The neck simply was not designed to carry the weight of anything – even something as lightweight as a camera. SLR cameras can be pretty heavy, though. Especially when you take into consideration the fact that the neck was just not designed to hold weight. So how is it designed to work without the use of the neck, you might ask?
There are two straps instead of one on the camera body harness. These two straps spread out so that they will strap over each shoulder rather than touching the neck. Shoulders are designed to hold weight. Just think of what it’s like to carry a heavy backpack. Those who are using their shoulders for the weight can find that it does not seem nearly as heavy as when trying to hold it any other way. The straps cross over the back to ensure they will not slip off and the two sides of either strap connect directly to either cameras or binoculars. That’s why it is often referred to as a binocular camera harness.
It works well because the binoculars or camera can easily be attached or unattached at the blink of an eye. They can only come on and off when the connections are purposefully undone. This means they are safe to use but still user-friendly. Also, they do not need to be unattached from the hooks unless someone wants them completely off the harness. Most people leave them on even when in use because it is fast and easy and it helps to steady them at the eyes. Indeed, the camera body harness works and it does wonderful things for those who love to use binoculars.
