My first post on finding the right camera strap was getting a little long, so I decided to add an update as a separate blog post. In the first post, a reader asked about a strap that can be used like binocular straps. I found a couple of examples online and linked to them in my response; so check that out if you’re interested.
I then ran across an attachment that lets you use your exisiting camera strap like the previously mentioned R-Strap. It’s called the C-Loop.
In the prototype department, Olympus filed a patent for a camera strap that will also serve to block glare on your LCD screen. Personally, it doesn’t look very practical and I think you’re better off getting a Hoodman Loupe.
Finally, another design that turns your camera strap into a solar panel to charge your camera while you’re shooting.
