Camera Updates

Recently, I bought the following items:

  1. Scarf Neck Strap
    I’m really liking the neck strap since it’s comfortable. The only con was that it was a bit long. In fact, it’s so long, that I can now sling my camera as if it were a shoulder purse, with the body dangling right above my hip. I’ll still use it though.
  2. Peak Design wrist strap/cuff + Anchor links
    I really like the wrist strap because it gives me more freedom than the neck strap. It also gives me peace of mind that I won’t drop the camera. The cool thing about the Peak Design is that I can quickly interchange the straps I use without having to fumble with the grommets.
  3. Camera body grip (JJC)
    I have mixed feelings about this item. It kind of makes it more comfortable but at the same time makes the camera body considerably more heavy. And, there’s a sharp edge where it hits my palm and I’m not liking the feeling. Heavy and sharp metal? Ugh, I don’t know. I’ll probably try it out but knowing myself, I’ll most likely take it off. Luckily I opted for a cheaper alternative. The grip by Fuji was more expensive.
  4. Shutter buttons (not pictured)
    I got these because I liked the concave design. Basically my finger will just naturally fall into the little dip since my older one was a convex design and I did find my finger slipping off once in a while.

I also bought a hand grip but it was a dud. It wouldn’t tighten enough to conform to my hand and even if I did get it tight enough, it wouldn’t stay that way. It would loosen at any slight movement. I actually feared this so that’s why I got the wrist strap just in case. I’m so glad I did because I actually like it a lot more.
