What's the most /fa/ way to carry your camera gear? I shoot a lot of street photo, and I kinda like this setup but I'm curious what other /p/ users might do. Considering getting a quick release sling aswell. Unsure what brand is good though, most on amazon have bad reviews saying that they're breaking and unreliable.
>>
Only boomers use neck straps anymore. Wrist straps are superior ergonomically and aesthetically.
>>
>>4029624
What about doing day to day shit like stopping to eat or in a shop? Idk if fucking around with my camera on my wrist would be great.

I don't mind wrist straps as long as I'm only going out to shoot, but I rarely do that cause I always carry my cam with me.
>>
>>4029646
Depends on who you are I guess but Id rather carry it in one hand and have it ready to go rather than bumping back and forwards and up and down and sliding around on my chest or around my back. Thats so fucking annoying to me. If its not to you, go for it.
>>
>>4029646
I just use a compact apsc with a thin wrist strap that fits my pants pocket.
>>
>>4029621
For a dinky little camera like that put it in a pouch on your belt. And no, you are not on a fucking catwalk posing for Vogue so stop worrying about it. If you want to carry your camera everywhere AND be reasonably comfortable you'll just have to suck it up
>>
>>4029708
absolutely this
>>
Only faggots need a strap on to hold their camera. No straps, no grips, nothing at all cunt. My hand and the camera, holding it all the time. Imagine fumbling to grip your camera while it's resting from your neck strap, idiot. You aren't a real photographer.

Unironically this while wearing a jacket over. Might look like a concealed gun but I don't live in burgerland, so I'm not afraid of getting shot.

Just carry a coil of slackline attached to your gear at the bottom. Once you reached the peak hoist everything up.

Jimmy Chin uses the F Stop Navin:

Maybe secure the camera to your harness using a carabiner, to prevent it from smashing into the rockface.
>>
>>4029624
only zoomers use wrist straps because they're more used to internet marketing than walking the street
>>
>>4029743
Also because you made it up, you rarely go out, and you're telling us your idealized version of yourself; a camera mercenary.

Cringe!

Dont give me too much credit. You would have seen the utility in any review of it. These other guys talk all this shit about brand names but this thing is the safest option and its nothing money. I got mine half price and I havent even opened it yet. I dont even have a camera to put it on yet. Ive got a little compact that only shoots in daylight. Look how bad this photograph is. I have to try to handhold a 1/10 second shot at toneh 9.3 at 1600iso at 4:30 in the morning. God Im so broke. Ill get there bros. Tell me Ill make it. Oh it hurts

>>
>>4029621
Around your neck where it's not too in the way, but is easily accessible for photo oppostunities
Quit being a poser. Practicality is the best look because it's genuine
>>
Strap over your shoulder is the /p/ro way. The classic Domke ones are good because they've got grippy rubber that won't slip off. Not around your neck, shit can cause nerve damage if you carry a heavy pro camera and glass. When I was shooting for a living and carrying two or three bodies all day I used a dual blackrapid rig, and also had a Think Tank modular belt system with the pouches arranged so that I could holster whichever camera I wasn't using and take the weight off my shoulders.

Redpill and based wrist strap bro.

HOLY FUCKING BASED & REDPILL.

I don’t use straps either, too many times the straps obscured my viewfinder when I shoot vertically.

>> I have never dropped my camera and never will

Fucking based & same attitude here. I hold my camera so much, it feels like an extension of my body. Always trigger ready; muscle memory so fine tuned, am able to change any settings on the fly. Can hide it behind wrist and be completely hidden

This. Many times people almost knocked my camera of the desk because their hand is caught by the strap.
Just get a camera bag. No strap is needed.
