Review: Wrap It Up with a Miggo

When I saw the Miggo Strap & Wrap, I was intrigued. A camera strap that doubled as a soft case? Interesting. For this review, I received a DSLR/Mirrorless (CSC) Strap & Wrap. They have one in development for "professional" DSLRs,­­ which should be able to hold full-frame sensor bodies like my Nikon D3. For this review, I tested it with a smaller DSLR, my Nikon D200. I’ll talk about the fit more in a little bit, once I explain how the Strap & Wrap works.

Comfortable and Functional ... To A Degree: Joby Pro Sling Strap and UltraFit Sling Strap for Women

The Joby Pro Sling Strap worked well for me, with certain limitations. For me, the SpeedCinch pulley system works to hold the camera where I want it to hang on my hip, but not for the full-cinch, behind-the-back, close-to-the-body position. It works great on the male model in the demo video, but I'm a short stocky woman with a moderately large chest. The closest I can get to a secure cinch is to have the chest strap above my right breast and passing through my armpit. Needless to say, this is not a look that lends itself to professional appearance.
