- Camera Gear Upgrades With a Lot of Bang for the Buck
- How to Turn Your Photography Hobby Into a Career
A good camera strap makes the world of difference when you’re heading off on your first 14-hour shoot. And a common misconception I hear from beginner photographers is that they simply can’t afford the best camera strap for beginner photographers.
I’m going to prove you wrong, but first I need to tell you why you need to move on from the camera strap you have right now.
Of course, people will argue over what is truly the best camera strap, but the factory camera strap you’re working with now is definitely not it.
Why You Need to Upgrade Your Camera Strap

You’ve been working with a factory camera strap for a while and you don’t have any complaints, or if you do they’re minimal.
Sure, it’s a little uncomfortable, which isn’t ideal, but you’ve probably never worked with an inexpensive leather camera strap before so you don’t really know what you’re missing out on.
Of course, it also isn’t really adjustable past changing the length of it by a few inches. But, this only really loses you a few seconds each time you’re trying to snap a pic.
Then again, it isn’t versatile either. You use it as a shoulder strap and that’s it. If your shoulders get sore, that stinks, but there’s really nothing you can do about it.
A good camera strap for beginners should work for you, not against you, and factory camera straps are designed for hobby photographers who aren’t going to be shooting for longer than an hour or two.
The Best Camera Strap for Beginners
This is why you need to upgrade to, what I believe, is the best camera strap on the market.
The Holdfast Classic Strap is an inexpensive leather camera strap that is versatile, comfortable, and adjustable.
Each of Holdfast’s products is built just for you, so you can order this camera strap in sizing ranging from 38” to 52”, which is bound to fit any photographer. That’s the kind of versatility you deserve!
It’s made of genuine leather and comes in a skinny version (for photographers with a lighter camera) and a wider version (for photographers carrying loads of equipment all day). Essentially, you’ll never again have your camera strap digging into your shoulders.
I know it might not seem like the material and construction of your camera strap could make a big difference in your level of comfort, but trust me when I say that straps like the Holdfast HF Classic are light years ahead of that flimsy, uncomfortable strap that came with your camera.
I also think any camera strap for beginner photographers should come in a variety of colors and should look beautiful. The Holdfast Classic Strap meets the mark. You can choose from a range of colors, from chestnut to tan to black. It’s not that having a beautiful strap will make you a better photographer, but why walk around with an ugly factory strap when you can ride in style with Holdfast?!
Plus, it wouldn’t be the best camera strap for beginner photographers if it didn’t cost less than $100.
Yeah...under $100 for a handmade leather strap that will likely outlive your camera! It’s a great investment from comfort, aesthetics, adjustability, and versatility standpoints.
