So…I am not as young as I once was (though not as old as I hope to be!) so anything that makes it easier to lug a large lens around is a great thing!
Case in point – the Cotton Carrier camera harness that my folks got me for Christmas. It is a totally geeky looking buckle on vest that has an attachment on the front to securely hold the camera and lens. This lets me give my hands a rest when the birds are taking a break, or, lets me have my hands free when I am walking.
This morning, I strapped on the carrier and took a neighborhood stroll, not caring in the least how crazy it likely looked. (Again, I think this is part of that aging thing!) When I got to the end of the road, I was blessed with a Red-shouldered Hawk siting.
I fired off a few shots…
…then he (or she) prepared for take off…
…and flew to where he was no longer in view.
I have only used it a handful of times, but I am already labeling this Cotton Carrier a five star device!

Hello! Does this harness, as well as giving you a hands-free option, take the weight off your neck?
Yes! And it helps the back too!
You definitely need something. Even my 70-200 lens makes lugging the camera on a strap around my neck tiring pretty quickly. Great hawk shots!
But wait! We didn’t get to see the outfit!
I shall keep you all in suspense and save it for a future post!
I’m curious about this outfit as well. One of the reasons I don’t lug my big camera around is because it hurts my neck. Great shot of the hawk.
Here is a link to the one that I have, It works great with my 100-400mm lens. 🙂
