It’s easy to get caught up in the moment and get caught up in watching your favorite show. You might feel a bit like you’re the only one, but you’re not. There are many of us that are just a bit camera-shy.
The problem you have is that you need to be able to take your camera out of your camera bag if you want to take a picture. The camera strap goes on around your shoulder and is held by a small clip that attaches to your camera. This clip can slip off the shoulder at any time, making your camera fall to the floor. This is a horrible, very real possibility, and it has happened to many of our members.
A camera strap slip is not a big deal unless you’re in a really bad position. If you fall, you might end up flat on your back. You can try to jump up and get back up, but this is often difficult because you would probably just land on your face, which is another very real possibility.
The camera strap slip has a couple of advantages over the camera clip. While the camera clip tends to get hung up on your camera, the camera strap slip is more likely to keep your camera free as you fall. A camera strap slip can also easily be used to pick up your camera when you hit the ground.
Of course, the camera strap slip can be used to pick up your camera when you hit the ground. If you fall, however, it’s not a good idea to hold on to the strap to keep it attached.
If you do fall, though, holding on to the camera strap can be a bit tricky. You don’t want to use it as a handhold to keep your camera above your head, because you’ll end up falling forward and end up holding onto your camera even though you’re still falling forward. Instead, hold the camera strap with two hands, and then grab onto the camera strap with your other hand.
As a quick example, I was a few years ago at a movie premiere with a camera, and the camera guy was about 20 feet in front of me. We were both about 5 feet from the ground, and the camera guy is holding onto his camera with one hand and his camera strap with the other.
And then when he turns around in the air and lands on his back, his camera is in the water (and the camera guy is still holding onto his camera with one hand and the camera strap with the other hand).
That’s an extreme case of camera strap slip, but I’m sure there are many more.
When you’re holding onto your camera, camera strap slip is really bad. It’s like you’ve got a camera attached to your arm and the camera strap is in your hand. The camera is in your hand, and the strap is in your hand, but your hand is empty. You look like a total idiot.
