DIY DSLR Wrist Strap

Here is a simple DIY project for a rainy weekend: replace the neck strap that comes with your DSLR with a less obtrusive and more practical wrist strap. This strap is ideal for photo walks and situations where you don’t want your DSLR dangling on your belly.

For this project you need a piece of 550 Paracord parachute cord which you can buy cheaply at eBay. Attach the cord to the DSLR, make a loop, and make sure that your wrist fits comfortably and you can reach all camera controls. Cut the excess cord off and tie a tight knot. Use then a lighter or matchsticks to melt the cut ends, and your new strap is ready to go.
