Camera Shoulder Strap
For continual shooting throughout the day, it helps to have a camera shoulder strap. Some of the shoulder straps are specific for certain makes of camera while others are universal.

Well known camera manufacturers make their own straps, such as Nikon or Sony, but there are many generic brands too. Shoulder straps can come in a variety of different materials all of which have their qualities.
Genuine leather straps are smooth to the touch, strong and are usually treated to be water resistant. In either black, red or tan these can also look rather stylish. Some come with a cushioned pad that sits on the shoulder or around the neck comfortably. These can be thin and purely practical accessories, or can have a woven ornate appearance.
Canvas shoulder straps often have intricate patterns stitched into the strap, giving an aesthetic element to a practical item. These are durable and versatile pieces are usually much more cost effective than others.
For those that want the sleek appearance of leather at a cheaper price tag, synthetic leather is perhaps the way to go. Synthetic leather is vegan friendly and is just as durable and soft. These are often more waterproof than the genuine leather straps. Available in a range of colours and designs, you can choose a strap to suit your style. Either a shimmery finish or matte can be achieved.
Whatever your choice of material, there is a wealth of stylish and practical options to keep your camera secure about your person for constant shooting.
