Crumpler Industry Disgrace for me too. 5D2 and 70-200 would have cut my head off on a canon strap.

Me as well. I use it on my heaviest camera- Mamiya c330 medium format TLR(it's a BEAST) actually. But I'd love to get another one for my canon.

After a bit or reading and a short trip to amazon.com for the cheapest price, I got myself a Crumpler industry disgrace strap for only 30.00 shipped with super saving shipping. Hoping the 7D and the brick will feel that much better =)


7D, S95, EOSM,

Canon straps are pretty bad... They were causeing me a lot of neck and shoulder problems.

OpTech straps solved a lot of that for me. I have them on all my EOS and shoulder bags. But I've used others that are probably equally good... Still have Domke on most of my vintage film cameras. Up Strap looks like another good option, altho I haven't used them.

CPS gives away an OpTech with membership. So Canon knows there's room for improvement.

Just a "brick"? try carrying a 7D with vertical grip and a 300/2.8 attached! At least the lens has a second strap.

I've been using a Tamrac neoprene strap for several years, and find it much more comfortable than the Canon neck strap.

I use the Black Rapid RS-4 and it's a bit better and a lot more comfortable to wear. I've ordered the Spider Pro holster to get rid of straps all together, hopefully this is the way to go.

Roots Canada used to make a very comfortable air cell wide strap for both Bags and cameras. I still have both. I no longer use the camera version because I now use a hand strap. It is really handy because it has the quick detachment clasps to take the strap right off. The wide part has rubber air sacs built in to the underneath surface that both hold it in place and cushion the load. Unfortunately, I just checked and they are no longer listed. Pity!

But you might still find them in discontinued bargain bins.

Simple. Just get rid of the strap and hold the toy with your hands and make yourself look like a pro instead of a tourist. :)

so pros don't believe in straps? .... maybe because they have assistants?

Don't use neck/shoulder strap with the weight of the nice camera and good lens. I believe a small camera bag plus hand strap is a convenient alternative.

I have Industry Disgrace too, it's very comfy. However not able to dump it in washing machine makes me sad (not sure if any others can?).

I used the Nikon Leather Hand Strap on my 5D Mk II when I had one. Worked great too.

I have a similar one on my Canon 7D but such a hassle when you have a batt grip and you switch from landscape to portrait and use the buttons on the grip.

what kind of line is that?

the gray is spectra, the black is the line I got from aps. I got a spool but it's been on the spinnaker halyard on the little boat all summer as a safety, so it's been dragging a 992lb boat through the water w/o issue. :lol:

Another vote for Op/Tech. Pro Strap user here, low cost and good quality. My wife loves hers too.
