Michael, which handstrap would you recommend for a 7D with 70-200 f2.8 IS USM. They're quick heavy straining both the neck strap and the neck. Thanks.

dpollitt, thank for sharing. Now I feel better instead of feeling bad from focusing only on caring for the L lens and body, neglecting the neck strap.

comment Can I use a photo of an iphone to sell my product?
I agree with MikeW in his comment in response to Aaron's answer. If possible, do not use another brand or trademark that is visible in photo of your product, especially since Apple has in the past went against other companies. Consult a lawyer or someone with relevant marketing experience.

Thanks for sharing. I really appreciate your help and tips on this. I too noticed the IPTC metadata written to original doesn't have GPS.

comment How can I hold my camera steady?
Agree, it's not easy so improvisation is required. Since I occasionally stumble upon wildlife when I walk (without my tripod), what I do is find a tree branch, using the camera strap to loop around the branch and myself to provide some stability, compose, meter, then shoot. If the subject isn't moving out of frame, I'll even set timer so I don't have to press the shutter and just focus on holding the camera steady.
