Review: Peak Design "Slide" Camera Strap

The majority of people that purchase a new camera will use the supplied camera strap or buy a cheap neck strap that may look and feel more comfortable. I mean... how important is a camera strap anyway!! Most people would say it wasn't important at all ....well they're wrong. Take it from us (and we are Professional Travel Photographers) that the humble camera strap is crucial in the difference between not only how you shoot but also how your neck feels at the end of a long day. For years, we used the "comfortable" neck strap that was extremely comfortable at the beginning but by the end of the day we were relieved to finally be able to remove it. Sure we could have had the strap over our head and sitting on one shoulder but this made it impractical when taking shots on the go.

Review - Tamron SP AF90mm F/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 & Tamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Macro 1:1 Di VC USD

As Travel Photographers we really have never had the opportunity or the need to shoot Macro images. However since starting our Meetup group we have met many photography enthusiasts that were interested in this genre. We were fortunate to have been given the opportunity to test both the Tamron AF 90mm f2.8 Di SP Macro and Tamron AF 90mm f2.8 Di VC USD Macro. These lenses would be considered Portrait/Macro lenses and ideal for these types of photography.
