It was my first time to travel on an extended vacation with a Nikon D40 dslr in tow. After three long weeks hanging on my neck, I didn't want to bring one again. Then I came across this weight reduction camera strap through my gadget freak sister. It is ingeniusly invented by a Filipino and endorsed by many professional camera users over at PIPHO and they swear it does really help lighten the "burden". Invicta X1 is an all around weight reduction camera strap designed for comfort, convenience and durability. It comes with a removable memory card case and disposable polycarbonate sheet pop-up flash diffuser.
Try it and feel the difference. It's available online for P1,100 at echostoreph.com
Whew, there are four friends off my Christmas list. They're getting one from me tonight. *hugs*. :)
