Don’t Miss a Shot With This Solar-Powered Camera Strap

Digital cameras have made photography much more sustainable, and rechargeable batteries  are a great eco-advantage too. But photography is the art of light, so what better way to run your camera than on the power of the sun ? This new solar strap from designer Weng Jie lets you do just that.
The Solar Camera Strap makes stopping to change batteries as “last year” as putting in a new roll of film. The only trouble, as Wired’s gadget lab notes, is that the straps feed directly into the battery port, making it impossible to have a battery in place as a back-up power supply. But as long as the sun’s out, you can keep firing with your camera securely around your neck, and it looks pretty nifty too.
