But it states "We are currently only offering camera straps to paid subscribers. "

That sucks - I had smugmug for a year (paid) and no one ever said anything about a strap.

I was gonna go with Flickr due to lower cost but if a strap is included, hell, why not! I need new strap anyways! I think Smugmug might have a new customer my next paycheck!

not to be a jerk, as i am the one who sell all the smugmug strap..
To those who buy from me, your order is shipped via USPS this evening. so no worries.

Canon CPS strap also "free". but it sells for 5x more


I agree. I've sold a couple so-called "free" smugmug straps. I don't know why people are hating. I pay a hefty annual fee to smugmug every year and if I want to sell the ones I have in my possession at a reasonable fee, I have every right.

From what I know... they're only "free" if you a member or if you catch them at a trade show.

I had this debate a few months back about these things... and truly frustrates me.

Every item free or not has a VALUE to someone!!!... Not to mention the fact that these straps are really great/comfy and @ ~15-20 bucks a pop (avg selling rate), worth every penny.

I believe I have two left, PM me if your interested in purchasing this "free" item. LOL!

Smugmug is ok with you collecting and selling their free straps?

sorry to hear that bro! They are hard to come by, that's for sure. Which is why if someone wants to sell theirs, I see it fair. Funny enough, I got my free strap as a guest @ WPPI before they even got the chance to send me my "official" member one, LOL. FYI...Apparently, there's only one person in charge of sending out the straps to members who request for one, hence the lag for ppl receiving them (and this came straight from one of the workers mouth @ the booth).

I'm going to SmugMug when Zenfolio ends. They lowered cost and made the plan I want.
