I got the idea to make this great should strap for my camera From PhotoDojo. In essence it is a strap that hangs across your chest that lets your camera hang at your waist allowing you to grab the camera and bring it to your face for quick shots, but also be out of your way when not in use.
I made this strap from 2 straps. I had one wider strap from a free laptop bag I got when I ordered my MacBook pro, and the thinner strap is from an old, and I mean old, camera bag.
The laptop bag strap had great hardware and shoulder pad. I cut off the hardware which was a swivel clip and that allowed me to remove the shoulder pad. The swivel hook’s part that attached to the original strap was wider than the new one which will allow it to slide.
I took the thinner strap, put on the shoulder pad, slid on the clip hook and made the thinner strap one piece with a plastic slip hook. Afterward, I put an eyelet hook on the bottom of my camera in the tripod mount socket. It is a little long, but it works.
Now my camera can hang at my waist and I can pull it up to take a shot without the whole strap moving. You can see an example of how it works here . If you want to order the original you can do so at that link too.
