As far as slings go, I've only used the Black Rapid Sport straps (both versions 1 and 2). I really liked them.

I just ordered a moneymaker strap... partially because of it being the few leather options out there. I'm gonna love having my strap match my shoes at weddings... ha!

I had considered the SpiderPro system... but I am pretty mobile and I didn't like the idea of having my hips restricted.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

Yes, but the aftermarket straps improve significantly on the garbage Canon sells cameras with.

Once you've had a 1D Mark III with a heavy lens on it around your neck for 14+ hours a day for a week or two, you'll understand ;) The stock straps are absolute trash.

wow,if you hang a rig like that for 14 hours a day ,one should go strap less ! who new that people hall cameras that long in a day,my work day-about 8-9 hr's .

Optech for me. Price is right, comfortable, two clips for redundancy when not in use.

I recently got a www.carryspeed.com (external link) FS-PRO and like it more than a neck strap.

Custom SLR Glide Strap for a DSLR or MF camera.

Gordy neck strap for a small rangefinder or mirrorless camera.

Gordy wrist strap for a P&S or other small camera (think X100, RX1, etc).

i just use the canon stock strap that came with my 7d,folds nice into my bag,its light and strong,all the other after market straps are just a way to try and improve on a basic camera strap! and thats's a hard thing to do, i think its sort of funny, people try to where there cameras on there hip like a gun slinger , quick draw with a camera! oh well to each is own.....

Good luck carrying 3 cameras ready to shoot for 12-15hrs with the garbage stock straps.

I've got a few straps but my favorite, which is also the least expensive, is the OP Tech Pro. Yeah, it's got plastic snap connectors but I trust my camera with them. This particular strap also doubles as a hand strap by removing the shoulder strap section.

I like my Camadapter sling strap.

I've got the wrist strap addon and the sling strap does not interfere with my tripod socket on the camera body which I wanted. Plus no plastic connectors to depend on. :)
