Crumpler makes really nice straps that are a little wider and really alot more comfortable on the neck and shoulders. They're called Crumpler Industry Disgrace (external link) <-Click

Crumpler all the wayyy :cool:

I'm gonna repost this. For perspective. And, to reiterate it's meaning. The only other thing that I've ever known to be true is TAXES. This, though?... Yep.

I have also heard a lot of good things about the Q strap.

http://www.amazon.com …TF8&qid=1334477​037&sr=1-1 (external link)

I bought a Q-strap and was disappointed with the quality. Returned it and bought the Black Rapid RS-7. There is no way I was going to trust hanging my camera from the cheaply made ring clip that comes with the Q-strap, it's a poor knock off of the BR and the Q-strap even smelled funny. I'd recommend either the Black Rapid if you want a good sling strap or possibly the Op-Tech.

I viewed all this a few months back - did you pick a color and that is all you had to order - or are there different models other than yours as well? I just want to be sure of options and be specific in my order.... Thanks

There are (at least) two different models of the optech:

OP/TECH USA Pro Strap (external link)
and
OP/TECH USA Pro Loop Strap (external link)
The first review on this one has a a good explanation of the the difference between two.

I have: the Optech 3/8”, Crumpler industry disgrace, and the Custom DSLR C-loop system (seehere) for a short review of my own experience between that and the crumpler.


Honestly, I can’t understand anyone that uses the canon strap – really, really uncomfortable for me, both in terms of lack of padding and location of the camera (way too short).


If I had to pick one, I’d get the crumpler – marginally more $$ than the optech, longer, and more comfortable.

I don't use straps, but when I do, I use my RS-7. A bit expensive but worth it. Works really well.

+1 for 24-105
+1 for strapless unless I'm out in town and then I use a nondescript domke gripper strap in black. I do not use camera straps with canon written all over it
+1 for love stinks
+1 for dank getting a 5D :)
+1 for Riv getting lost in a Asylum with a hot model and posting pics here
+1 for Dr D getting to share some beers with his old man and snapping a nice set
-1 for Dr D having to across state limes in order to do so.

I'm in San Francisco right now, wrapping up my last day of a wonderful week long vacation up the west coast. Highway 1 is fantastic and while the weather in San Fran has been meh, the town is pretty cool. Looking forward to Yosemite and Zion this summer.

this is the one I'm using and i quite in enjoy it as it is comfortable to walk around with and offers two different sets of straps (one long and one short) the neoprene neck strap is really comfortable with a gripped 7d + sigma 70-200 2.8 os on it and the price is fair.

hope this helps you in your strap endeavor.

which grip should I buy? the canon one or after-market ones? I'm really worried about durability and cheap grips frying up batteries/or whatever circuitry it could fry due to shoddy quality.

Thank you and let me know when you'll be in Zion. I have some friends that own a hotel down there called Flannigans and a little resturant called the spotted dog. You'll need to check them out. Probably a good idea to book asap as they're summer season books up quick.

The shots of him look great - I hope he appreciates them and your talent behind the lens ;)

Thank you, and yes I think he does appreciate them. He was into photograph at one point too, but ended up with me and my brother, so didn't have as much time as he wanted then. It was his idea to go on the little ride so we could catch up and show me some of the places I remember as a kid and show me a few places he remembers as a kid with my grandpa.

I have the BR-Sport. It has a little strap that goes under your arm to keep the strap in place.
