Waka Professional DSLR Camera Strap

This Waka Camera sling is a great budget option for photographers looking for a heavy-duty sling strap that simply does the job. While it’s nothing fancy, it’s affordable, durable, and has all the basic features one would look for in a sling strap

The Waka Professional DSLR Camera Shoulder Strap features a robust adjustable strap (capable of supporting full-size DSLRs) and a durable shoulder pad with a pocket for storing small essentials such as extra batteries or memory cards. This sling strap will suit taller photographers better as the strap tends to hang low even at its shortest adjustment. At its shortest, the adjustment buckle comes right to where the camera rests at the bottom of the strap so you may end up having it hit your leg as it hangs when you walk.
