Wouldn't those metal hooks leave scuff marks on your camera?

Have something similar and haven't seen any noticeable scuff marks.

Plus, minor blemishes for the convenience is worth it.

I use a grip strap as well. LowePro and it has CF/SD card
storage on the outside of the grip with a protective flap
over it. It's not as comfortable as others, but none of the
others have card storage and I use the storage pockets
all the time.

I can post an image, but right now lowepro has pulled the
product. Crazy and people are JUST NOW starting to use
grip straps. I've been using them for years due to
partial hand paralysis and can't use a neck strap due to
injury.

I've even written lowepro to suggest a redesign, but with the
same storage on the outside of the strap. Well see.

Great strap. Thankfully have one on my 5DII and my 60D.
If anyone knows of a current grip strap with storage pm me, thanks.

If i have time in the a.m. I'll post an image.

Okay, stupid question probably but I'll ask anyway. Does any of you use a shoulder strap while carrying your backpack (with the rest of your gear in it)? I'm guessing it would be rather uncomfortable with two pads on the shoulder... :confused:

I'm looking for a shoulder strap that would allow me to carry the camera all day without having it banging on my chest while still carrying my backpack. Also, I'd like one that doesn't have to be screwed at the tripod mount (BlackRapid) but rather with quick release clip(s). Any suggestion?

not sure if you got an answer for this, but i have one of the sunsniper 'back-pack straps' that can attach to your backpack http://www.sun-sniper.com …-back-pack-strap-495.html (external link) . i also have l-plates on my cameras and use a RRS clamp http://www.reallyright​stuff.com …mp-with-strap-bosses.html (external link) to connect.

if i'm not using a backpack, i generally use a black rapid sport.

hope this helps.

No posts to this thread in 10 months!

My poor little Lumix came to me used with no strap. I wanted something thin and looked at everything, they all cost too much. The wife then suggested this, a strap off an old purse she doesn't use (yes she has at least 20 more she doesn't use so I had my choice.)

Perfect. I like it.

Those are nice and $89. Too rich for me.

You can get a strap , leather if you look, at Goodwill, attached to something else.

Quick Strap from eBay, got it almost a yr ago for seven dollars and change. Great bargain - now it sells for $5.29, although I did not get it from this seller (below).

Great strap - holds my 70D & Sigma 160-600mm OS
