Camera Sling Straps and Hand Grips
One easy way to keep your camera nearby is with a portable sling strap or hand grip. These small but necessary photo accessories allow you to have your hands free and make it easier to keep your device portable for easy use, and there are numerous features to consider when purchasing straps and grips.
What Are Some Types and Features of Sling Straps?
A sling strap is a long strap that attaches to your camera. You can choose long crossbody camera straps that you can wear across your chest diagonally or slings with a shoulder strap that you can carry over your shoulder. These slings have numerous features, such as a quick-release option, padding for comfort and an adjustable design for a customised fit. You'll want to ensure that the strap you purchase is compatible with your camera, such as a Nikon or Canon.
What is a Camera Hand Grip?
A hand grip is a smaller version of a camera sling strap. This accessory attaches to your camera and usually has a thick portion that you can easily grip with your hand to hold your device or a loop you can use to slip around your wrist to carry your camera with you. These aren't as long as sling straps but can be thick or thin, depending on your personal preference.
