I feel much better without.

Same here, tried all shorts of neck straps, hand straps, even a black rapid and in the end I felt much better without one.

Another vote for the Luma Cinch, though they are currently out of production until version II comes out.

What's your favorite camera strap? I'm looking to upgrade the oem strap. A sling strap looks handy.

Domke Gripper 1.5 inch strap, light weight and quite rugged .

Domke Gripper on my 40d and 5d2 (shown wrapped around my wrist)
Black Rapid Sport on my 5d3.

I don't know how to use a camera without a strap.

Go strapless! Those things just get in the way.
I got a Spider holster and wouldn't go back to straps if you paid me.

I agree entirely !

I have run a pair of Spiderholsters for about a year now, and love them.

I will say I do use my double blackrapid occassionally though.
Typically when I need to switch cameras very quickly (outside court, going from a 70-200 to 16-35)
And when working at height, the blackrapid is used as a safety backup.

I also use the BR when shooting out of a Helicopter.


So, my advice is, ditch the strap, use a spiderholster - if you can't bring yourself to ditch the strap, get a blackrapid

If you don't like the sling straps, the pn the POTN- Optech is very comfortable - I just found it didn't suit the way I work

The one thing about the sling straps is that the strap gets in the way when you try to do portrait orientation with the camera. I have found with a grip attached, the camera sits at the perfect angle to grab it with one hand and bring it up to normal photo mode. If I shot a lot of portraits I may not go with the sling strap and instead use one of the other methods. I like the spider clip idea, but for $200, thats a gamble on how well I'd like it.

Same here! It really makes taking photos a ton more "ergonomic". I no longer have to fight a strap that clings to my body when I want to swing my camera around for a quick shot.

OEM for me.
If I need to use DSLR with large lens without tripod - Cotton Carrier System.
One DSLR with long lens on my chest, another DSLR with shorter lens on my belt. Doesn't make me feel like I'm wearing horse-collar, my neck is completely free.

And here is one of my RF's home made strap :cool:

MM with a BB logo?!
Looking at Big Boy I already feel hungery.
This one is delicious.

Now only don't tell me that this is the camera NG photographer; "Reza Deghati" was using to picture "Ahmed Shah Massoud" in Afghanistan and was stolen on Paris Charity auction for only 1000...

:lol::lol: I had a BB patch that my wife somehow disassembled and then sewed the BB logo on to the strap. No its definitely not the same exact camera. I am so in love with this camera and lens. I paid full price for this and the lens and it took me 4 months to get the glass and 6 months to get the camera and there is still an insane waiting list.
