Yesterday I was shooting both urban and landscape using the Sony a6300. Shooting on the busy street I was holding my camera. I was jostled and the camera fell out of my hand.
Later I was on this bridge. I slipped on the ice and dropped the camera. It was in the river.
Camera Wrist Strap
Or would have been, if the camera had not been tethered to my wrist with a strong wrist strap. Two incidents in one day, which without the camera wrist strap, could have ended up as a very expensive day out.
Mirrorless cameras are small and light so a neck strap seems unnecessary. Plus if you are into street photography a big neck strap with the manufacturer’s logo, is just too conspicuous.
The wrist strap I use is this Mayveek paracord lanyard, but there are lots of different types on Amazon. This wrist strap, however grips your wrist securely and incorporates a sturdy quick release clip
To attach the wrist strap to the camera, I use these Op Tech System Connectors, which on my DSLR enables me to quickly switch between a camera wrist strap or neck strap.
A camera wrist strap is probably the cheapest accessory you will ever buy, but it could end up saving you thousands.
