While I'm a Canon fan I really would like a different strap than the default one that comes with the 5D2/3. Ive seen some really cool ones with floral patterns, textures and designs but have no idea where to get them. Of course I'd like them to be durable, flexible and all that good stuff.

Website recommendations appreciated!

Googling "cool dslr camera straps" comes back with a lot of recommendations.

4-5 links down I saw this one :) You said you wanted colors.....

Best camera strap in my experience.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Agree with Luma labs. I love my cinch. It's comfortable and gets the camera out of my way when I need it to be.

For looks, the etsy shop above has some of the best I have seen, but I have no idea how comfortable they are.


Photography is just a hobby for me.

If you're looking for something "different" and handmade, I had one made by a designer in LA. He's got a very small etsy shop and the quality is serious. Personally I like the canvas strap thing, the leather ends are all top rate and not junk leather scraps.
Long enough to use as a sling strap with a disconnect halfway through for fast release if needed. Great guy on top of it all.

Phatstraps. They are very well made and come in an amazing variety of designs. I have two and love them.
