A stylish or overly-technical camera strap or camera bags

If you wouldn't feel comfortable picking out a pair of underwear for the photographer in your life, don't get them a bag or strap either.


Camera straps come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and materials. Some are woven, others are leather, rope or neoprene. Some offer quick-releases and / or neck-padding and/or length adjustments, others do not. So how do you choose the right strap this season? You don't.

Photographers are very particular about their straps and trying to pick one out for that special someone is not unlike buying them a pair of pants - only they can tell whether the fit and feel are right. It's worth noting camera bags and backpacks fall into a similar category of 'definitely don't buy unless you're absolutely sure.'

But if you insist on purchasing a camera strap this holiday season, the Peak Design Slide offers a good balance of features, weight-capacity and price. We're also fans of CAM-IN's leather and rope straps.
