Wrap it up! with Domke Equipment wraps

There are times when you just can’t take a camera bag with you, but you don’t want to leave your camera at home. I’ve heard all types of advice for carrying a camera in a non-padded camera case: “wrap it in a t-shirt” or “wrap it in a towel”…or worse…”just put it in the top of you backpack and hope for the best”. No. Thank. You.

The nice folks at Domke have created a solution to this problem. Wraps. Square, padded, Velcro closing wraps that cradle your sensitive camera gear simply and safely when it’s inside your backpack, purse or suitcase.  The come in a variety of sizes for different equipment and a variety of colors so you can know what’s inside without unwrapping your gear. At about 20 bucks each, this is an affordable and practical way to protect your gear in any kind of carrying situation. where to buy

Nikon’s new AN-SCM chest strap turns your AW-120 into an action-cam

This cool new accessory for your AW-120  is a chest strap designed to hold the camera in place when using it in action. It gives the user a chance to use the camera’s HD video feature hands-free while they are doing sports and other activities. Like the camera, the strap is waterproof so it’s suited for snorkeling, skiing, or even white water rafting.

To get great action footage, simply start the video recording on your camera and attach it to the chest strap. Unlike head mounts for small ( think gopro) type camera, the torso of your body is much less shaky, making more of the video useful when editing. For extra fun, strap this onto your toddlers and let them run around while recording…you’ll enjoy watching the world from their point of view.

Nikon teams up with Black Rapid to offer a new quick draw camera strap.

The Quick-Draw Strap and Quick-Draw Strap S were developed based on quick-draw straps invented by photographer and BlackRapid founder, Ron Henry, and popular throughout the market for their incredible convenience. The straps have been further refined to offer even greater convenience.

Along with the great mobility offered by BlackRapid products through specifications that enable on-the-go shooting with a mechanism that allows the camera to slide diagonally up and down the shoulder strap, a system that utilizes the camera’s tripod socket so that the camera hangs upside down for a smooth grip, a shoulder pad that effectively distributes weight for less burden, and an under-arm tether that holds the strap firmly in place, these two new straps offer an even greater sense of security with a safety strap that prevents the camera from falling in the unlikely event the fastener comes loose, and a cover that prevents the carabiner that connects the strap to the camera from scratching the camera body.

The Quick-Draw Strap, with a wider shoulder pad, is suited to use with digital SLR cameras. The Quick-Draw Strap S, with a narrower shoulder pad, is suited to use with Nikon 1 advanced cameras with interchangeable lenses and Nikon COOLPIX compact digital cameras.
