The only strap I will ever own again!!

If there were more than 5 stars, this strap would have em. I used to dread shooting a wedding or long event because after a couple hours my back and neck were extremely sore from supporting my gear around my neck with the typical camera strap. I even ditched the stock strap and opted for the fully padded type but still nothing could mask the weight of a dslr, battery grip, heavy lens and shoe-flash hanging from my neck. Then about 2 months ago I came across this strap at my local camera shop ...

If there were more than 5 stars, this strap would have em. I used to dread shooting a wedding or long event because after a couple hours my back and neck were extremely sore from supporting my gear around my neck with the typical camera strap. I even ditched the stock strap and opted for the fully padded type but still nothing could mask the weight of a dslr, battery grip, heavy lens and shoe-flash hanging from my neck. Then about 2 months ago I came across this strap at my local camera shop and that was one of the best investments I've made in my photography career! No neck or back pain anymore and I barely notice my camera there even after 6-8 hours. Before I would have been cringing after about 3 hours. The elastic in the strap also acts as a shock absorber so when walking the weight is absorbed in the strap around my shoulders instead of my neck muscle. To the other people that wrote about lack of "sweat protection" because camera rests against the body...don't know of any camera straps that keep camera away from body and put a shirt on. As for stability, this strap is great and fully adjustable. I adjusted mine so camera rests slightly above my waist line and have no issues shooting landscape or portrait. Now if you adjust it too high you might struggle with portrait position. It took about 3 minutes for me to understand how to wear it correctly and about another 10 minutes to dial it in to my liking. After that...no issues, no fuss, no worries. Before I leave for a shoot I'll put the strap on and buckle the two ends together in front of me like some strange training bra for men. Once I get there I will take out the camera and buckle in to the ends attached to the camera and I'm good for the day. I'll detach if I'm shooting on tripod or eating but usually leave it on the entire time. Even if I do detach my camera from the strap or I'm done for the day, I'll leave the strap on until I get home. The quick release levers are solid and I feel no risk from them coming unlatched, especially not both. My boss shoots with a D3X fully loaded and even that tank is well supported. If you are hesitant though OpTech sells little straps to velcro between the latches or you can buy a roll and make em yourself. I designed two for mine when I first got it but after using the strap for 2 months don't even use em. Trust me, especially if you suffer from neck or back pains from your gear, you WILL LOVE THIS STRAP!!!

awkward attachment to camera body ! !

I use this to replace a far simpler & lighter harness, The Yukon Harness", puchased 15 yrs. ago! To use the current product, I had to re-do the attachment to the camera by purchasing split-rings and J-snaphooks. this would allow quick-disconnect from camera when needed ! After this modification the rig works OK !

Works as stated

By

from Castroville, TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

Use this harness with my DSLR camera. It works great, holds camera close to body while hiking, but is easy to raise to eyes to shoot a photo. Love it. Had just a little trouble getting the clasp to attach to my camera strap mounting slots.

Works For Me

By

from Florida  -  Photo Enthusiast

Got this to carry camera while riding bike along trails so it wouldn't dangle from the neck on the strap. Works good, keeps the camera close to the body, no swinging or hitting handle bar. When ready to stop and shoot, the elastic allows quick positioning for the shot.

very good harness for lightweight items

By

from seattle wa  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this harness with my Canon Powershot D10 for kayaking and snorkeling. Works great and provides hands free support and easy access to camera. Straps are easy to adjust and adapt for specific needs.

love it. will keep buying it

By

from El Paso. TX  -  Casual Photographer

use it all the time with my dslr. love it. do not have neck, back or arm pain any more. Enjoy photography even more now. I have had major back surgery and the bio-cam has not hindered my ability to continue photographing. prior to the bio-cam i would take my point and shoot camera nikon P90) because it is light weight. now i take my dslr with a 70-200 f2.8 lens all the time

Best Camera Harness

By

from Omaha, NE  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This strap distributes the weight of a large lense and pro slr across your shoulders and not your neck. I have several of the Op Tech straps. I use this strap for my camera and the other straps I attached to my lense cases and camera bags. I also own the two camera strap that is capable of holding tow slrs with two large lenses. I highly recommend any of the Op Tech products and especially this strap.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

l. s  does it work for a binocular as well as a digital nikon camera?
TIMOTHY C  Yes it works for both. I bought a second set of the op/tech connectors so that I could switch quickly between camera or binoculars.
Shopper  Will it fit a Panasonic LX5 compact camera as loopholes are smaller than a DSLR? Thanks.
NATASHA S  It is hard to say, I never had Panasonic LX, The loopholes need to be at least 7/16 inch wide. But you could adjust it if use the small rings as joins, I think.
Russ H  Will this harness work with a Nikon D300?
AL Y  I am using it on a Canon 40D. It should work with any camera since it connects the same way the standard neckstrap does.
