Camera Neck Strap

The Camera Neck strap has the potential to ruin thousands of people’s lives. Innocent photographers are subjected to it time and time again. The makers of this futile accessory have teamed up with camera distributors to package this otherwise hopeless accessory so that literally millions of people will be exposed to it. Why do all cameras come with a Camera Neck Strap? Simple – it’s because otherwise they couldn’t be sold.

The camera neck strap is single handedly responsible for countless neck aches and damaged pieces of equipment. The lack of thought that was put into the single camera neck strap is shocking.  The only positive attribute is that it holds the equipment. That is the only positive thing one can come up with.

Let’s talk about where the camera neck strap fails us. It has to be said. We cannot passively allow this horrific situation to continue any longer. Here are the problems with the camera neck strap:

  1. The single strap hangs on the neck which adds enormous strain to the neck
  2. It has too much slack which in turn allows the equipment to swing out and become damaged
  3. It’s not safe for you or the camera

So why use it?  Why use a camera neck strap if it creates all these problems? I will tell you why. Negligence. That’s right. Negligence. It’s negligence on the part of the creator of the camera neck strap. It’s negligence on the part of the consumer who allows it. Instead, everyone should turn to the obvious solution which is the harness.

The harness is the best solution because it eliminates the neck pain by placing the weight on the shoulders instead of the neck. The harness is far superior to the camera neck strap because it holds your equipment close so that it does not get damaged by swinging around. Indeed, there is no other way to put it. The camera neck strap is no match for a harness.
