The Coolest Way to Carry Your Camera
Whether you're a pro shooter or just taking family pics of your vacation, we all have a common problem. Where do we carry our cameras to ensure that they are safe but are easily accessible?
Lisa and I have been battling this little issue since the start of our trip back in 2003. When we're off the bikes we're usually carrying a ruck sack, another bag, torch (that's flashlight to our American friends :-)) or we're just busy doing something else, that isn't camera friendly. All this means is that when a photo opportunity pops up, we usually miss it, because by the time we've pulled the camera from the bag or untangled the neck strap and slung the camera from over our shoulder, well, the opportunity has gone and the shot's been missed.
A chance meeting as we were heading out of the main entrance of the New York City Convetnion Ventre, on the last day of the PhotoPlus Expo, intorduced us to Spider Camera Holster. Check out the little video below, I think you'll be impressed.
I know it's cliche but even after using this brilliant bit of gear for just a few days, we're hooked, excuse the pun. Having our camera's so readily available but at the same time, having our hands free and not having to deal with a cricked-neck from having to lift one shoulder all day to stop the camera strap from slipping,well, it's a game changer.
