Well, my camera was sitting on a desk this morning, and I stepped back to make way for my wife and touched the camera strap with my finger. Heard the tiniest snick, and saw the strap snapped in two. Ulp! Just thinking what would have happened if I'd been using it to carry the camera. Needless to say I'm appalled. Just 21 years and four cameras and the thing snaps like a twig.
Think I'll get myself an UpStrap. Apparently they're robust.
Just kidding, 21 years isn't a bad effort I think, but still it's a bit scary, what with it carrying a new camera and all.
