RS-7


All my canon straps went from box to bin still in plastic. Even the 1dx strap went straight to the bin. For a camera of its price it was insulting for canon to give a crap strap like the others.

I've got all kinds of camera straps and still prefer the OP Tech Pro. I can carry my camera on my shoulder or remove the padded portion and still have a wrist strap.

I just love my Crumpler Convenient Disgrace. I have tried others but continually go back to it. I love its weight distribution and the extra wide padding on the neck.

Black Rapid Sport is my favorite. Doesn't even feel like the camera is there.

I have an RS7, which is way better than the stock strap. This is on a heavy body and with a heavy lens. If we are walking around all day, it's great!

My only complaints are the little metal clip has worn off all of the coating on my body where it attached. So now I have bare metal exposed below the screen.

And that the camera won't sit flat anymore. It was nice to have the ability to set the camera flat and take a selfie.

I use two of them, I have a Crumpler Singapore Sling which is nice because it adjusts to a sling, neck strap, and you can disconnect the strap all together and just clip the ends of the connectors together and make a handy carry strap.

I just order a DSPTCH small sling in grey which looks nice and I'll attach onto my 2nd body.

Those plastic snap connectors are very strong. I'm sure someone will say theirs would come apart, but it was either defective or they didn't have it together. If you are worried just use a velcro strip wrapped in there.

But to answer the question, yeah a sling strap is super comfortable. I love mine and it feels fine even with something like a gripped camera and a 70-200 2.8. If you have the CPS strap, you can just get the sling adapter and it snaps right up.

^^ This. I have the CPS strap hooked up with the sling strap adapter. Works awesome and the only thing you worry about is banging the camera on whatever you walk by.

BTW, those plastic connectors are used in the military by our soldiers who carry 80+ pounds of equipment and gear they need to survive.

I use a Luma Cinch. It's ok. I can carry my 6D+70-300L all day without complaints. It allows for comfortable positioning of the camera. Version 2 looks like it solves my main issue with it, which is the hardware it uses to connect to the camera (existing design twists the strap and isn't tripod friendly).

Mine is a BlackRapid RS4 with the strap replaced with a Pac-safe camera strap which is steel cable lined. It all connects to the BR Stealth Connector on a D-Ring. Over shoulder and neck and no issues with carrying it.


Keep shooting till it looks Great!

I posted earlier that I use a moneymaker strap. That's basically for formal events. For hikes and vacation, I got a Blackrapid Yeti strap. Two cameras, functions just like a BR Sport version (which I owned) and can be converted to a single camera system. Most versatile yet.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

I've also never used any of the straps that come with my cameras; their only purpose is to advertise the brand and model.

When I see people using them, I really can't fathom why - they're unbelievably uncomfortable, scratchy against your skin and just really bad at balancing the weight of the camera and lens.

I use one of the women's Black Rapid straps. Best strap ever for me.

I love my Luma Cinch. I have a young daughter, and it is the only thing that has been able to get the camera out of the way, while still allowing me to get back to it quickly.


Photography is just a hobby for me.
