Fashionista, Mon Amour


Free Advice: If you shoot with a Nikon, lose the strap.

First off… they’re cheesy-looking or—as we say in the biz—”good gaudy.” And besides, why would you wanna walk around advertising your camera brand? Is somebody paying you a commission? Or maybe you’re just lookin for trouble. Hell, a mugger can spot a Nikon strap a mile away.

Stop showing off, it smacks of Amateurville. People get close enough they’ll see you’re packin heat.

The main reason I toss my camera straps in the trash is this: there’s a better (less ostentatious) solution called the UPstrap.


The damn thing doesn’t slip off your shoulder every time you bend down or make a sharp turn. And it’s more cost-effective than an extended warranty.
