no pics yet, but I ended up buying the Black Rapid rs-7, a little pricey but infinitely more comfortable than the Canon strap. But then again, ANYTHING is more comfortable than the Canon strap....

Depends on what strap qualities you're looking for... Stock Canon Straps are so much lighter in weight and stows away quickly into your camera bag. :)

Comfort wise... the Canon strap is crap though. ;)

That's the part that scares me about buying a new strap. It may be uncomfortable (enough so that I don't actually use the strap unless I know I'm not going to snap pictures for a small length of time) but when I want to stow it...would it all get messy in the bag?

Especially the black rapid sports straps....

CC is not a strap lol.... it,s a bullet proof west for paparazzi's :-)

Personally i would never use something like the CC,it looks stupid and draw way to much attention. I could Imagine coming to client with it...at
least i get some smiles...:-)

I use optech straps on all my cameras, comfortable and excellent quality.

LOL :D:D:D

that's a lot of attention with those canon crumpler neck straps, expecially the red one... For once I've been thinking of getting a strap, but not sure if I want to stick to a neck, get a sling or just get a nice handstrap...

Anyone know any good handstraps that can be used without a grip?

Recently, nearly all my camera gear was stolen - including my Industry Disgrace. Though I adored the comfort of it as a neck strap, I am not replacing it.

It is bulky, and doesn't stow-away well in my current shoulder-bag. As it is the only bag I have, and the one I take with me when I'm out and about, I realized that when I am not taking a picture, I prefer to put the camera back in the bag, rather than dangle it off my neck. I may consider a wrist strap as a simple safety to dropping it. Otherwise, stock neck strap it is.

Stock standard Canon issue strap.
Can't see any reason to spend money on something else to do exactly the same job as what I've got now.

I use to think the same way. Until the cameras were around my neck for a few hours with heavier glass.

I checked out Phil's link. Was impressed! Glad his advice works for him. While he doesn't need to change, I had to

Personally, I change gear when it helps me take better photos. I hate straps that need to be held or my camera will fall off my shoulder. I like my BR Strap. Don't like the fastener much. But I haven't figured a better way yet.
