Crumpler Industry Disgrace here as well. Unfortunately, I just noticed that it's coming apart already after 2 days. Back to the store it goes.

^ Looks good but painful too. No cushioning to ease pressure on the neck.

I'm using a "Crumpler - industry disgrace". A very comfortable strap with a fitting name. (As in disgrace for Canon, Nikon and all other camera manufacturers who put neck torturing straps on their DSLRs.)

Crumpler Singapore Sling for me - my first camera strap other than a Canon one.

It's way more comfy to wear, although a little bulkier to store (in my Crumpler photo bag, of course! ;) ).

I like the fact I can unclip the strap from the camera without having to remove the strap from the metal hooks too...

Turns out a gripped 7D + 622 + 580exII + 70-200 2.8 IS MK2 is BLOODY HEAVY! Who knew?!!

You must have gotten a very very very bad copy.

I've been using mine for over a year now, while traveling across the world. It is as good as new.

I figured I should post the custom/modded one I made. (under $10)

I had a Crumpler Industry Disgrace that I received for free when I bought my XSi from a friend. At first the strap was ok for short use, but wearing it for an hour or more really started to bother my neck/shoulder(s) (especially with a bigger lens and grip attached). Soon after getting the camera I went to a photo show up here in Toronto with a couple of photog friends. I noticed that one of them had turned their Crumpler into a sling. I took a look at how he made his and decided that I would do the same thing to mine (only better). The next day I went to the local fabric store to pick up some items.

I ended up buying about 2 meters of black webbing strap ($2), a pack of triglide clips ($2), a heavy duty lanyard swivel clip with a "D" shaped end ($3) (which btw was the hardest thing to find), a slide lock ($1), and a lighter from the dollar store to melt/seal the ends of the webbing after cutting it to size. I then sat down in front of the tv to do some sewing.

In about 2 hours I tuned this stuff: (pics from the web)

Into this:

The new addition is the "Brad" that I received for free at the last photography show I was at. (thanks Rapid guys) :)

(Note: I'm eventually going to change the regular swivel to a locking version. The one I have on there now has a pretty strong spring to help keep it closed, and it has never opened up on me by accident, but I want the peace of mind that a locking swivel would give me.)


As for the attachment point to the camera, I was originally using the Rapid FastenR screw on the bottom of my grip, but I didn't like how the camera hung. So I added a padded eBay hand strap to the body/grip ($4) for those times I wanted to carry the camera without the modded strap.... stitched the hand strap pad and strap in place so everything stayed put, and then I attached a regular split ring to the lower part of the stitched hand strap (to help make the body sit on a bit of an angle when it's hanging from the big strap). This made the camera/grip a whole lot easier to grab when it was hanging at my side.

So for all you guys that are hating your neck straps, just change them to a sling like my friend and I did. ;)

I tried all kinds of straps and liked most of them. Have used the Opt-Tech sling purchased from POTN for over a year now (I tried a chinese knock off from ebay and didn't care much for it).

I think this Opt tech is my all time favorite. Purchasing also helps the board in some small way.

Does this link give you everything you need or is it just the sling? Meaning, the 2 clips etc.

I've been looking at Black Rapids as well but I love how comfortable the Op-tech's are.

Returned and the second one is much better. I recently got a free Smugmug strap made by Op-tech and I like it much better. It's more compact and doesn't take up as much room in the bag.
