I am sure these straps are good quality but they look like they are extremely overbuilt, too much material to get in the way in my opinion.

Wapiti Straps have been around for years and are beyond excellent.

BigShooter: Canada isn't in that list?

From glaciers to deserts, Canada has a bit to capture...

That's unfortunate* but I suppose that's what happens when people go to places where wildlife is trying to live.

*Have a link to any news article about this...? I would sincerely like to learn more.

@PVCdroid
I believe you are referring to Vancouver Island and yes, it's beautiful in BC.

Just an FYI, large oil corporations want to increase tanker traffic on the mostly pristine coast of British Columbia.

@ThatCamFan
The wildlife is fine, it's just unaware humans that are the problem.

;-D

Personally not a fan of wedding photography in the least but congrats to all those listed. I want the last name "Schwinghammer"!

King Penguin: I have a safety harness line on my yacht using the same principle and it works very well, much more comfortable than a normal safety harness......

I have a bungee-tether for my sailboat as well, great for use in that application. (absorbs a lot of energy vs a straight line)

Bit different for a camera on your neck/shoulder though...

I would rather spend the money on a lotto ticket, I might actually get something for my money.

It can suffer from "impact damage" as well. ;-D

Sounds like bit of a 'stretch' to me...

"People prefer film"

How to you infer that?

Marcio K: If Fujifilm launch a proper Instax Wide camera (manual focusing, some exposure control, good glass lens - like my Polaroid Lands with peel-apart film) I would buy it in a heartbeat.

I agree, they are fun but as soon as you start adding the features you suggest the price goes north very quickly. (and then only a limited amount of photo-nerds would buy them...)

Bought my elderly mother an Instax camera, she loves it.
