Standard camera straps aren’t the speediest or most comfortable. This simple DIY strap hack gives you the speed and comfort of a $US50+ camera sling but at a fraction of the price.
You’ll need some basic parts like a laptop or other bag strap — the more padding the better! — a few inexpensive plastic buckles from a backpacking store, a keyring, and a 1/4-20 screw to secure the strap to the bottom of the camera. The project does require some stitching of nylon webbing either with a machine or by hand, but other than that the tool requirements are minimal. When you’re done you’ll have a comfortable way to carry your camera that doesn’t get tangled around your neck or restrict your movement with the camera.
