Tips & Tricks | Watch out for frayed straps

A camera strap isn’t something you spend too much time thinking about; they’re usually attached the day you get your camera and promptly forgotten.

But if you’re in the habit of carrying a couple of bodies over your shoulder, chances are your straps will have become twisted at some point, and this can often lead to fraying – and a frayed strap is one that can let you down when you least expect.

This is something our technicians see every week when cameras are brought in for servicing or sensor cleaning.

Replacement straps are not expensive – certainly less than the cost of repairing or replacing your kit if the strap gives way!
