Of the dozens of camera straps I ve used throughout my career, not a single one has addressed what I consider to be the biggest issue — shoulder and neck strain.
No matter how wide or padded the straps are, at some point or another, all of them begin to put strain on your neck or shoulder, depending on how you prefer to secure your camera.
Especially when it s anything larger than a mirrorless camera attached to the strap, such as a DSLR or medium-format film camera.
To rid the world of this problem, leather goods manufacturer Ponte Leather has created a new camera strap designed to move the strain off your shoulder and on to your back.
As the above video shows, the strap — which comes in both leather and canvas materials — is aesthetically similar to almost any other camera strap on the market.
What sets it apart is a unique closure that securely attaches to the handle of a backpack.
