Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum and returning to serious still photography after a couple of decades of absence. I'm starting to buy equipment again and I have a question about one of the most boring things you can think of - camera straps. (A great way to impress everyone with my photographic expertise, huh?) I see that a lot of straps now have thin cords like you see in this image: Are these thin cords reliable and wear-resistant? Any idea how heavy a camera and lens combination these might be okay with, maybe a big DSLR with a long-ish lens like maybe a 180 or 200? Does anyone have any specific recommendations? I prefer fairly traditional shoulder straps, maybe an inch wide at the most. Thanks everyone! It's good to be back shooting after such a long time away from it. Dave EDIT: I didn't notice a search tool available or I would have checked older threads for something on this.
