Thank you to whoever mentioned using neck strap as means to steady camera!

A week or two ago, I read someone's post suggesting that one might not want to remove their neck strap from the NEX in order to use a wrist strap. The poster's thought was to use the neckstrap (while around your neck) to hold the camera out, away from your body, strap taught, as a means of steadying your camera while shooting.

I have tried this and it works beautifully for me, especially for the sweep panorama or in low light. Holding the camera out until the neck strap is taught is very "steadying" for me.

Whoever made that post, thank you!

Sandy
