Where'd you go, stay put!
Is there any kind of shoulder strap to safely use for carrying my D7200 / 200-500 camera? It does get heavy after a while.
+1 to this. I use BlackRapid's tether kit, but for some cameras I simply loop the hand strap for the camera through the shoulder strap. Good insurance.My only advice is whatever you use, make sure it has a tether! I carry a D720 with 200 - 500 lens and I've gone through two straps already (including one black rapid one). It's not the strap itself that gives way - but the metal elements that attach the camera to the strap. Both times these have given way, my camera has fallen to the floor but has been saved from crashing onto the ground below by the tether - or seatbelt as I call it.
Does anyone know of anything that also supports the lens? Had real problems with my Sigma 150-500 (you'd go to focus and the framed picture would jump up and down - other times nothing would happen until I twisted the lens as if I was attaching for the first time), and I think part of the problem was that I let it "dangle", ie the camera was attached to the strap and the lens just hung from the camera - I did feel that possibly the weight of the lens was pulling away from the camera. Just got the new Nikon 200-500, and don't want to risk a similar problem. I find myself walking about holding the lens so it doesn't put strain on the mount. Grateful for any thoughts.
