Sun Sniper produces a line of camera straps that are different than the usual strap. You no longer have the camera hanging from your neck and bouncing around on your chest. You wear the Sun Sniper straps across your body, so the weight of the camera is distributed across your chest and back, with the camera hanging at your side. The straps are padded and shock-absorbing. There’s only one point of attachment; a threaded stainless steel ball bearing connector screws into the camera’s tripod mount. All models have a steel anti-theft wire inside to prevent someone from cutting the strap and stealing your camera. Sun Sniper even offers a $500 insurance policy if a thief is able to cut that strap and steal your camera. Sun Sniper straps are available in the US from Bron Imaging. They range in price from $67 to $192, depending on the features.
