If you are at all like me, the camera strap that came with your camera is really not very comfortable. Whether it's walking around for hours while you are traveling in a new city, trying to carry your small children in your arms while still holding onto your camera (a common occurrence for me), or perhaps you have a backpack on or are carrying bulky items, a "normal" camera strap really gets in the way. The way a strap digs into your neck is really uncomfortable. So, what is a person to do? After much experimentation, I have found my favorite camera strap of the past 30 years. Black Rapid makes some great straps. They fit over your shoulder, similar to a purse, but allow the camera to move up and down the strap, thereby letting it hang down from the strap, to be pulled back up for use. It is simply a great camera strap. I have tried the cheap knock-offs and they are not worth it. Spring for the real deal, you won't regret it.
Black Rapid Sport Strap--This one has an underarm strap to really secure the camera and strap for when you need extra security. Buy it here.
Black Rapid Women's version--A slimmer version made specifically for women. Buy it here.
Black Rapid Cross Shot Sling--A simplified, and cheaper version. This one would be great for small, point and shoot style cameras.
