Domke Gripper with the quick disconnects. I hate straps normally so it allows me to take it on and off very quickly.

It is fairly thin though with not much padding.

I got 2 of these. Very comfy and it contributes a little support to the forum.

Best,
MC

Has anyone tried the Think Tank strap? It has rubber-whats-its on both sides; I used a Domke gripper strap or two for a donkey's age. Rubber is only on one side of the fabric.

Tried a BR strap; easy to wear. Don't like the 'biner. So I've taken it off and gone back to a simple strap. Have an UpStrap on right now. Sure doesn't slip off my shoulder. (years of studio and outdoor portraits, used to hanging the camera there. Works for me.) And I don't like giving up my tripod socket to a strap.

Ha ha, no worries, it is easy to overlook for some reason. Many do it.

Unless you have a neck of the HULK, I suggest black rapid.

I use an OpTech strap from the link at the top of the page, it works well. Also used a pacsafe for a while and thinking about the new Luma cinch :)

Optech - the POTN shop sells them.

Yeah. Been using them on everything since the D60. They're great; biggest lens I've used it with is the 300 2.8 IS, which is heavy no matter how you carry it.

Thanks for all the recommendations. Looks a little weird with the Black Rapid strap connecting to the tripod connector. What are your thoughts on that?

I am tempted to get the POTN strap....but what about shipping to Canada?

I currently have a 7D and use the standard neck strap (the one that came with the camera). I find that strap quite unconfortable (especially when wearing a T-shirt). Any recommendations on a strap that will provide a little more comfort?
Thanks.


Sorry, I use the ones that come with the cameras.......works for me
