which is all good and dandy until he finds out next year when he renews that he doesn't get a new strap or other goodies. it's for "new" members only :-)

they used to do it every year upon renewal, but have stopped and only reserve it for new members.

Put the strap on Ebay and your membership comes for almost $30 :)

I wouldn't do that with such a gorgeous strap.

So the trick there is to let the membership expire, then instead of "renewing", sign up to start a "new" membership.

I have this CPS OptTech strap but its too short for my preference, never used it after trying it on, is there a way to get longer extensions for it so it hangs lower than the default one?

Nevermind, I think I found the extensions...

But you can also use these. I used the hooks and was able to lengthen the strap to the point where I could easily place it across my chest with the camera on my hip, with some extension room to spare, and I'm 6' tall.

Another perk of being a member, is you get to test a lense for a week or two you may consider to buy.

Jay, do you have a picture of these on your camera? How do those hooks attach to the 5DMKII? They don't look like they'd hook to the camera's metal strap rings?

Chris,

I generally use the Adapt-Its from Op/Tech below on the right. The OP/TECH System Connectors Utility Loops on the left will also work.

Yeah, the OP/TECH System Connectors Utility Loops are what is on my CPS strap now, and those loops are kind of hard to get on the camera, not sure why I have such a hard time with them, so I don't use it very often. The Adapt-Its look like a simple solution, will have to look deeper into these, thanks for the visual.

Remember that if you have a hard time inserting the Adaptits, you can put them in boiling water for about a minute to soften them.

Yeah I saw that video. How do those hooks treat your camera? They look like they might rub against the dial and wear on it some?

Funny that you should ask. Generally, there is easy movement of the hooks in the loops, but I have had the left one rub the black paint off a 2mm area of the camera.

However, it may have happened when I traveled and packed up the body.

These attachments are extremely strong and will not crack on bending. It's a tradeoff...the canvas loops are soft and movable, but not as strong overall as the AdaptIts and hooks.

I don't think I like neck straps anyway, I just purchased the Black Rapid Sport, been using the Black Rapid RS-7 but I'm selling it now, and will go with the sport. I thought I'd try a neck, but its just not my thing.

I didn't see that they were for sale, and they only send one or two depending on your membership. Does Canon sale them?

Here's one:
