Lately, I have been shooting without a strap to see what the difference is and because I took it off a while ago and just was too lazy to put one back on. At first, I liked the freedom as I was always wrapping my strap around my hand. For the longest time the strap just seemed like it was getting in the way. However recently, I have felt like I needed it a bit more. At any rate, I am curious as to what everyone else uses.
Here are my pros and cons of the strap:
- Helps with changing lenses
- Takes the load off
- can carry extra memory cards
- frees up your hands
