What's your personal opinion on no using a camera strap?

4 months 2 weeks ago #661827 by Amy Porter
Don't overthink this question, I know the value of a camera strap.  But when you have your camera on your tripod and there is heavy wind, will you take your strap off?  What's funny is that I know a couple of photographers who won't use one.  I have opted for hand strap, but have been tempted to go without completely.  But then I'm scared I might drop it.  

Do you ever not use one?

The only body without s trap resides on a tripod in the studio.
All the others have either a neck / hand strap.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

I always have a strap on all bodies at all times. I can handle the wind.

Why so serious?

No, never. Loop the strap around the tripod.

Too much risk in dropping it.  Always using one.

Only time the strap comes off is when I put it on a gimbal.  That's it.

Oh didn’t think about that with a gimbal.  Are there any straps that attach and release quick aside from Peak Design?

One word:  a gamble.  Technically that is 2 words, but you get the point.
