There are camera straps, and then there are camera slings. A camera sling has a special sliding bracket that you attach to your camera. The advantage of a sling is that you never have to take it off. Instead, you can leave it at your hip when it’s not in use, or quickly slide it up the strap when it's time to take a shot. The Black Rapid R-Strap is a sturdy camera sling that has a padded shoulder strap, a small pocket for carrying extra flash media, and a metal mount that screws into your camera's tripod socket. You can easily detach the camera if you need freer access.
