When we were little, we used to make fun of my dad a little bit because he always carried a ton of camera equipment with him – tripods, extra lenses, that kind of thing. Little did we know that he was just ahead of his time. It seems that everyone is carrying around a dSLR camera these days and all the accoutrement that goes along with them.
And with good reason. I made the jump to my dSLR last November. Having the super-fast shutter speed is a necessity to catch a good shot of my son/tornado. Seriously. He never stops. And it’s not just me – everyone seems to have fancy-pants cameras these days, so why not accessorize and personalize them?
So, without further ado, here is my new product, camera straps!
Fully padded, 2.5 inches wide, 26 inches long. Wide enough that you won’t want to shoot me when you’re trying to thread the camera strap through it, but narrow enough that it won’t be bulky. Machine wash (yay!).
But they’re not just cute. Last summer, I made myself a camera strap just in time for a little getaway to Charleston with my hubby. I was so happy to have it. It was one of those crazy hot/sticky weekends, and we were out in the sun pretty much all day. And since Charleston is a gorgeous town, I did my best tourist impression and kept my camera out around my neck most of the time. The strap made it comfy and kept my neck from getting sticky and itchy.
I absolutely love having a cover on my camera strap. It helps me stand out a little and keeps me comfortable. What more can a girl want?
PS – This would be such a good gift for someone who just got a dSLR…or maybe a little extra gift to go along with that camera that she’s been dying for!
