How to attach a camera strap

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or it’s the first time you’ve picked up a camera, there’s one basic problemΒ that baffles all photographers – how to attach a camera strap!

I’m talking about the black strap that’s included with most camera purchases, emblazoned with the manufacturer’s logo.

Bafflingly, there’s never any mention in the instructions on the best way to attach this darned thing!

So here’s Warwick from Fujifilm Australia setting the record straight once and for all.

It may not be the only way to attach a camera strap, but it sure is the best way to attach a camera strap I’ve ever come across!

    The Olympus OM-D E-M10 manual actually suggests this method. :-)

    I still wonder why camera manufacturers hold on to the usual method, while this one makes it more secure and simply better. In 2013 I already placed a blog about this way of connecting a strap. It written in Dutch. So if there are Dutch readers, it is also possible to read about it in your native language.
