A close call....

Carrying my E5 with 14-35mm and HLD-4 over my left shoulder
with the original Olympus strap attached, when the camera slipped.
I was fortunate enough to catch the strap before the camera hit the
ground. See pic as to what caused the near accident.
The plastic piece, center of photo on the strap had broken causing the strap
to release.
Note the plastic piece that broke was on the other side of the camera.

Was I ever lucky or what?
Guess it pays to check your gear, but I'm not sure if I would have noticed
any fracture on that small item.
Off out to buy an improved strap.
