Show me them! I’m looking for something different for my new camera and it has to be comfortable. I have a camo Crumpler Industry Disgrace which is pretty unique and very comfortable. It helped support my gripped 5D MKII with 580EX II and 70-200 f/2.8 for the past four years, so I’m looking for something just as cool and that isn’t bad like the OEM straps that come with a camera.

Have a look at the Black Rapid straps. They distribute the weight on the opposite shoulder very well and allow the camera to hang by your side and be lifted quickly to your eye. I use one with a gripped 7D MK II and a Tamron 150-600mm and can carry this rig for hours without fatigue.

I just recently switched from a BlackRapid to a Luma Cinch. The Cinch is the clear winner for me. Simple, comfortable, and it keeps the camera in place when I'm moving.

I've been using the Artisan & Artist Easy Slider strap for my cameras. They make for SLR too. http://www.artisan-n-artist.com/products_de​tails.php?id=225 (external link)

Take a look at the Leash from Peak Designs. One of my favorite parts about it, besides being easily integrated with the rest of their system, is that it has two attach points so you can secure the body AND any of your long lenses at the same time.

Probably doesn't have the "cool" factor but I really like optech straps.

I think the Canon CPS optech strap looks pretty cool though. :-)

X2 on BlackRapid Cross Shot. Picked it up last month after using the OEM on my old camera and current. Loving it.

I've been using a bandolier strap from a company called UPStrap for a number of years. I'm so terrified of this company going under or discontinuing this model that I've stockpiled enough of them to last me forever. The strap is basically just that. A 1 inch wide adjustable length strap that connects to the camera via a robust quick release system. It allows for an excellent distribution of weight for heavier gear and also lets you swing the camera up to your eye instantly without resistance. Best of all as a mostly travel photographer myself it provides excellent security allowing the camera to be concealed discreetly around your back/side/front and/or hidden by your arm or held directly with your hand at you side. The design offers little opportunity for cut and/or grab and run artists. Highly recommended.

Don't know where it came from, as I got is second hand, but this strap made by Crumpler is very comfortable and durable.

That's a Canon branded Industry Disgrace. Great strap. Recently discontinued. Crumpler must have something better on the way for us.

I use the spider holster and use the OP/Tech usa Pro strap (same as the CPS straps).

http://optechusa.com/p​ro-strap.html (external link)

I'll unclip the neck strap and just connect the black straps together. This way I have a small black strap out of the way as you shoot away!! and I use the spider holster free and clear of neck straps and secure my camera on my hip.

However I'll use the CPS strap as a primary camera and use the spider holster as the secondary setup. This setup is one of the best combo's I've ever used.

I've always wanted to Canon Industry Disgrace, but it's always been hard to find. Not to mention I sold my Canon yesterday. I guess I could wear it on the D750. :D

Congrats on a great camera.

Why don't you get a Canon professional strap (CPS) and put it on that????? you'll look cool :P

Canon has one of the tshirt/strap "kits" with the "disgrace". I just saw one at my local camera shop.

If you get a spider holster system you wouldn't care for a strap ;) unless your needing a strap for your primary camera on your neck ;)
