I always use a neck strap .. I don't like wrist straps
Between my body and arm the camera is cradled.... this is how I protected my older heavy SLR's with long lenses and it works well with the FZXX's
You can walk fast and navigate crowd's with protection for the camera.

Any reason for silver bodies boyzo?

Also thanks for posting this and the repost I missed on handheld shots with slow shutter speed. It helps a great deal when I turn the camera to portrait mode.

Appreciate all you have posted and shared so far.

Hi Tom Silver well that was the shop demo and I did a cash deal besides ....LOL silver matches my Honda Prelude too . silver is cooler in the Sun. Its actually a Greyish Silver so its muted.


My camera holding technique works fine too with the FZ30 despite its bulk, as for the neck strap idea its very secure I think its an original idea it also makes you more Covert in that the Camera is NOT on your chest in full display it really does protect the camera without the need for bag and for a shot its right there in an instant... try it you will like it. the cradlying removes all weight from the neck so you can go all day with a bulky camera.

Cheers

John

Boyzo,

Do you find the sun reflects off the silver FZ30 into your eyes? That's a common problem I have with my FZ10, but it's a much more silvery colour than the "silver" FZ30.

I had originally thought that black was the idea colour until I thought about how hot it would get in the sun (yes, it's a very sunny place where I live). If the grey FZ30 stays cooler and doesn't dazzle the user, then that's an important consideration for when I finally give up and buy one.

The silver fz30 is not a problem for me in the sun, more a grey color.
