How to safely remove the strap thingy from the body?
Apr 19, 2012

I'm not a big fan of camera straps, I usually "palm" my camera one way or another. For the EM-5 I just hold my camera upside down by the lens, with my index finger over the LCD, feels quite good in the hand and secure.

I want to remove the strap holder things so that it feel better in the hand, but I feel like I'm going to chip off the "chrome" or at least gouge a it in the process. Is there a secrete technique to getting them off safely, or should I just cut them off?
