Black Rapid Wrist Strap

I ditched my Nikon shoulder straps on my D800 and now use a Black Rapid wrist strap.  I like it a lot. I have better control of my camera, especially in that it does not swing and bump into things.  It feels much more secure to me.  You do need to check the connector to the tripod socket where it attaches. I've never had it happen, but I've read that some have had a problem with it loosening.  I check it every time I put the strap on my wrist.

Only drawback is that you have to take it off to attach it to your tripod, but I'll accept that inconvenience for the better security.

There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.
