There are several different types of camera harnesses out on the market today. While they all appear to be the same, they definitely are not. There are little differences here and there that can really fall short of what you might have been hoping for. For instance, something that might be missing in your camera harness is a ring in the back of the straps in place of a leather piece.
Many harnesses have leather pieces in the back that hold the two straps together. This works fine and in fact, the leather actually looks pretty nice so it all works out just fine. Fine, though, is not great and that is the point. If you’re wondering what your camera harness is missing, it might just be missing the ring in the back. Thanks to the ring, it allows for the harness to be worn over one shoulder, two shoulders like a chest camera harness or on the neck like a generic neck strap. This provides three different options one wouldn’t otherwise get with a camera harness that has a leather piece instead.
Little differences like these are indeed subtle; however, they are definitely important. Many novice camera harness purchasers are sucked into getting an item that simply doesn’t do as well as it could thanks to a few flaws in its design. There is no reason to get stuck with something you don’t like when there are so many appealing choices out on the market today. That’s why you should do your research and be sure to have a harness for your camera that you do like and has everything fit for you.
