Truth be told...I've got a bit of a belly on me, haha. Last time we went to the zoo I was using a Canon 55-250 IS, and even at the 55mm end, with the Canon neck-strap, I had one heck of time weaving in and out of people, there was just way to much going on up front. Now I am upgrading to a 70-200 f/4L non-IS, and this is much larger than the nifty two-fifty. Like I said, I have the original Canon neck-strap, and have an Opteka hand-strap, neither of which I really want to use on a trip to the zoo.
My question being, is there a different selection that I can't find? I saw a wedding photographer one time that had a strap that let the camera hang down at her side, not taking up much room. I'm not really sure what to look for. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Thank you all for your time.
