NOT for certain women. Not for a dslr,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: WorthTrust Quick Neck Shoulder Strap for Canon Nikon Sony Cameras (Camera)
Although I was very excited to receive this strap, once I tried to actually 'Use it' I was extremely disappointed.
#1: IF you are a 5 feet tall (or under) and weigh 102 lbs; do NOT buy this. No matter what I did to try and make this very bulky, stiff strap "fit me", nothing worked. The camera (a t3i),once attached to the ridiculous screw that is part of this cheap plastic rectangular disk/plate that is 'Supposed' to actually carry the weight of the camera, not only did it pull the bulky stiff strap over my chest way down, making it change position from my shoulder to almost down to my stomach; the ONLY position it hung was down BELOW my hip. SO uncomfortable. The friction of the rough material hurts your skin terribly.
#2: The tripod connection plate with the screw attached is the cheapest lightweight material. I don't know WHAT this company was thinking when designing this useless strap. No wonder people that reviewed this had such unfortunate experiences when their camera went crashing to the ground. HOW is a flimsy PLASTIC connection plate fitted with a very poor quality screw supposed to keep a dslr secure? You would think they would have put a strong real metal screw instead of the lightweight one they included. This might work for a very light 'point and shoot' camera.
#3: I had a difficult time trying to get this to fit me when I first received it so I went to YouTube and did a search on how to use this. The very first video I saw was a guy that said when he first connected his camera to the tripod connection plate, the plastic broke immediately. What I found AMAZING is this guy decided to 'fix it" by reconnecting it with velcro that 'Secured the dslr' to the camera directly but still kept the plate on AND continues to use it.(??!!!)Why the company that makes this would use such a poor quality plate/screw to secure an expensive camera is beyond my comprehension. As a result, I would NEVER, EVER use this. It is a disaster waiting to happen.
The description of this item states: *High quality made*.NOT! *Strong, secure and heavy duty*.NOT!(maybe the actual strap is heavy duty but too thick and stiff for me) *There is a tripod connection plate that accepts 1/4'' standart screw* NOT! *Confortable to use*.(their spelling, not mine)This was NOT my experience. Bottom Line: Buyer beware. (especially short women)
The ONLY good thing I can say is the Seller EasyFoto delivered this to me in less than a week. I did not return this because I spent way too much time trying desperately to make this work for me. But, this type of strap is not something I would EVER use to secure my camera after standing up and letting go of the camera in my hand. Maybe if you hold on to the camera every second before 'sliding it up' to shoot, that might work for some. But again, not for me.
