    I hate straps but..........

    Everytime my son used one of my cameras, he's 46 now, I insisted he use the neck/wrist strap.

    I had a call from him last evening saying that now he knows why.

    He dropped his own camera while up a step-ladder, it bounced off the radiator and then on the floor.....Kaput, beyond economical repair.

    'Always use that strap'.....I think I'll start listening to my own advice now.

    I have since ditched my QR Optech straps in favour of neck straps, because one guy told me..

    I won't use "quick release" straps after having one "quick" release itself, dropping my camera and lens onto a road.
