My Funky Camera compact camera strap

COMPACT camera owners looking for more than a simple black wrist strap should take a loo< at the compact camera shoulder strap from My Funky Camera The strap attaches via a sturdy nylon cord loop, which threads through the strap eyelet found on the side of a compact camera. For larger cameras with strap lugs, a metal clasp is also attached to the strap. This offers more support if you wish to use the strap with a small DSLR or compact system camera.

Like the other offenngs in the IVy Funky Camera range, each strap is made to a high standard, but it is the unusual designs that make the product standout. Rather than merely being black or grey there are currently 24 different desigrs to choose from, with more added freguently Richard Sibley

McRoy MDRP360 Wireless Power Panner £839.94

A SOPHISTICATED level of wireless control is provided by the MDRP360. The device uses a GHz radio frequency wr.h a range of up to 300ft (90 metres), and offers 360 panning, up to 30" tilting, camera focus and capture control. Zoom control is for supoorted digital cameras only, although this is controlled through a laptop computer. All this makes the MDRP360 a little complicated to use at first, but ideal for composing and controlling a second static cañera at a wedding o' for getting close to your subject in wildife and action photography. Individual image capture is achieved using the remote, and a series of images is also posable by programming timed intervals or angles

An optional handheld remote monitor (£149.94) is key to getting the most out of the MDRP360. The main device can support up to 3kg, which is suitable for up to a mid-level DSLR, but a large telephoto lens throws the balance. I found the ability to infinitely rotate the device is great for shooting panoramas, but at times It meant the connecting wires got tangled up on the tripod. As with any radio-frequency devices, the range can be compromised in built-up areas Outdoor phntngraphers will desire the build of the device to be refined to include weaherproofng Although the MDRP360 is net cheap, we have seen these :ypes of device command a mich heftier price, so this is a good starting point Tim Coleman
