Having camera weight on your neck is a real pain in the neck (see what I did there?). Get yourself the BlackRapid Camera Strap and put that weight on your shoulder. Great for vacations where you want to have your camera on you all the time. The strap allows you to quickly compose your shot, then let the camera hang by your side. Uses the tripod mounting hole to secure your camera to the strap. They sell accessories that will allow you to still be able to use your tripod. Compatible with point and shoot cameras as well.
(Camera not included, that’s why it’s grayed out (duh))
