I took mine off my camera as the odor of the thing is bad.

Can't wait for the new version of the straps...they sound more reliable. I don't really like the bounce the strap does when attached to my 1d :\

Hmmm, that was going to be my question. I've not put my strap on my MkIII as of yet, the stretchiness (is that even a word?) is a bit worrisome.

Anyone else put one of these on a 1D series body, and how "bouncy" is it?


P.S. The smell goes away if you leave it sit out for a couple days. Smells sort of like a tire store.

I haven't put it on a 1D, but I have put it on my 40D + grip with a 300 2.8 IS and it holds it pretty good. That's not to say that I don't have a hand right next to it to catch it, but it does hold fine and my fear is probably unfounded.


Apparently I've been dubbed Foxy.

No 1D here but 50D+Grip+17-55+580EXII = way too "bouncy" for me when walking around. It's a great strap and very comfy with less weight on it though.

I had it on my MkIIn for a while. Seemed fine for me (even with the 70-200 f/2.8 ), I just prefer a longer strap for my main. Plenty bouncy though. :)

Ya, I think that's the part I might not like. I'm not worried about it failing or slipping off the camera, it seems well made, but I'm just not sure I'd like that bounce from the stretch of the strap fabric.

Which means I have two of 'em that I probably won't use........

Hmmm it's not any less (maybe a bit less) bouncy than the OP/tech strap that I had oreviously on my 1D MKII. I have 2 different versions of Smugmug strap, one is a bit bigger and less bouncier than the slightly thinner one. It's a bit thicker too.

it bounces on my MKiii about 2 inches but i like the feel of it. common sense dictates that you should always have a hand underneath your camera whether it's a 1D body or not.
it feels solid enough that i dont see me removing it unless it breaks (which i dont think it will)

I think I stated it earlier in this thread but mine did break the second time out. It was only the underside foam that broke, but I replaced them with better ones.

Free is nice but sometimes free doesn't pay if it puts your gear at risk.

True. Plus I dont think that rubber material is going to smell good in summers :)
