You’ve got a doozie of an SLR and a couple lenses that cost more than a semester of college tuition, but your camera strap looks like it was yanked off a pair of Fisher-Price binoculars. Luckily for you, Joby, who’s made a name for themselves with their line of versatile camera tripods, has decided to tackle the world of camera straps with their Joby 3-Way Camera Strap ($40).
Taking into account the three most common ways to carry a camera — on the neck, the wrist and the shoulder — Joby built their strap with an adjustable cord that extends, retracts and locks at the touch of a button for easy use on each of the three body parts. The strap’s base plate quickly and easily screws into your camera’s tripod mount for a secure hold. There’s enough length for neck and shoulder carrying, and with the flip of a switch, no more hindering excess strap during wrist use. The ultra-strong Dyneema cord includes a large ergonomically padded portion — and can hold a full 90 pounds of camera, lenses and accessories. Now your only concern should be remembering not to forget it on the train.
