Strap on help.

Following a plea for help to fit a camera strap by Joak I thought I should share the following technical help:-

Starting from the middle of the strap work your way outward until the strap falls on the floor. The last bit you should have touched would have been the ends. Repeat and try to stop a bit sooner this time. Once the ends have been identified clearly mark them ‘end’ and ‘other end’, DO NOT confuse the two they are quite different. Now move on to the camera. Locate the first strap attachment point usually a shiny metally bit with a slot in it, mark this ‘point 1’. Find the next attachment point and mark this ‘point 2’. If when searching for the strap ends you found more than two ends carefully save the additional items for future spares. At some point you will have discovered some black plasticy things that look a bit like buckles, discard them they only make the job harder. Find a child or someone with half decent eyesight who can slot the strap end marked ‘end’ through the attachment slot marked ‘point 1’ tie it in a firm knot and Bob’s your uncle. repeat for the ‘other end’ and ‘point 2’. Now check that the Nikon logo is the right way round if not you confused ‘end’ and ‘other end’. I did warn you. If all else fails strong parcel string and a piece of old inner tube make a very acceptable strap.

Hope it helps.
