Camera Chest Harness
Many just use a single strap to carry their picture taking equipment around. For those who are not working long hours or moving around extensively, this is adequate. However, those who are hiking, moving constantly, multi tasking and working long hours, a camera chest harness is the only way to go.Many just use a single strap to carry their picture taking equipment around.

A camera chest harness takes the pain quite literally out of your neck. Those single straps that are most commonly used are placed on top of the neck which focuses all of the weight right there. With a camera chest harness, the weight is evenly placed over the shoulders, chest and back. This makes your equipment seemingly weightless.
What else is miraculous about the camera chest harness is the fact that it protects your gear. The normal strap that hangs around the neck allows for a lot of flopping about. This makes it very easy to bang your equipment into a wall or chair. A camera chest harness holds it close to your chest to avoid such unfortunate occurrences.
Don't be fooled. Although the camera chest harness holds your equipment close to you, it does allow for you to easily take photos while having the piece still securely attached. Because of its placement, you will have enough reach to bring the optics up to your eyes. This means you can conveniently have your photographs when and how you please without rustling with zippers, snaps and velcro.
Of course, there are always instances where you would like to quickly remove your equipment perhaps to change clothes or take turns with your equipment. The unique structure of a good camera chest harness includes sturdy plastic latches that allow the metal rings to slide in and out easily. These metal rings will connect either your camera or your binoculars; you may attach either to a universal camera chest harness.
No doubt, investing in a camera chest harness is an investment with many ups and nearly no downs. It will enhance your experience and surely your neck will thank you for it. In fact, I dare you to find a reason not to own a camera chest harness.
