How to Attach a Camera Strap

A camera is a device that is used for capturing any memorable moments. It is extremely fragile as well as very expensive device, and it should be protected from any mishap by attaching a strap to it. Although the person who has purchased the camera will surely care the device with extreme care, there is still a possibility that the camera might slip out of his/her hand accidentally while taking a picture. In order to prevent any mishap, it is recommended that one should attach a strap to his/her camera.

There are two types of straps available for cameras; Loop and Clasp. A loop strap is mostly attached to the normal cameras that are not too heavy and are not too expensive either. However, the clash strap is usually attached with the DSLR cameras or professional cameras that are a bit heavier and are extremely expensive. It is not a difficult task to attach the strap to the camera, and one can easily do the job all by him/herself.
