It’s an awkward subject. But it needs to be answered. There are so many female photographers that would absolutely love to have a chest camera harness… barring that it actually works for them. It’s a valid question as to whether or not women can actually use such a device. Luckily, they can.
It actually straps more around the sides of the chest than actually on the chest. And the camera hangs lower by the belly than on the chest as well. The term, ‘chest camera harness’ is something that simply is used to differentiate a harness from a generic neck strap. The main difference that should be illustrated is that one doesn’t hang on the neck while the other option does.
As you will note in the picture above, it works very well for women as well as for men. That’s the beauty of this ingenious little device. It solves two problems in one, not only for men but for women as well. Just think. You could go anywhere, hands free. No more neck pain. More importantly, no additional chest pain. It’s all in the way this strapping system comes together to combine the strength of the back, shoulders and chest so that you barely feel a single thing. Camera straps have never felt so good.
In addition to a chest camera harness working for women as well as for men, they also can work for children. Not very small children, mind you, but younger teenagers can benefit from such a strapping device. Thanks to its adjustable straps, it can fit very short people or even very wide people. People of many ages and sizes would indeed benefit from such a device.
