So i have been looking for a camera strap. After some research on POTn, I have come to the conclusion that I will be buying the optech super classic or lowepro voyager.

It doesnt seem like too many people use the lowepro so i am leaning towards optech since the potn like it more. I also noticed that there are two kinds of the super classic. the regular super classic with a pro loop and then there is the super classic with a uni loop. what are the differences between the two?

If you visit the OpTech web site, you will see closeups of the ends available...they actually have many attachment styles supported. Unfortunately I don't know the uni loop. Unfortunately the web information does not make it obvious what the differences are.
From the web, " The Utility Loop is ideal for adapting the UTILITY STRAP or other strap with snap hooks for use with a camera. Available in sets of two. The new Uni-Loop Connectors allow users to have a universal system with many other OP/TECH USA products"

From OpTech site
"UNI-LOOP
Availability: In stock

MSRP $7.95

•Enables cameras or binoculars to be used interchangeably with OP/TECH USA neck straps, wrist straps or harness systems
•Minimizes the amount of strap left on the camera when the main pad is removed (3.5" in length)
•Fits tight connection areas using a loop of 1/4" tubular nylon webbing
•Sold in sets of two
•Made in the USA


With the OP/TECH USA SYSTEM CONNECTORS, the camera/binocular owner has several connection options. You can buy an extra set of connectors to customize the strap to best suit your needs. Straps can be lengthened to be worn across the chest or shortened to be worn at chest level. Another feature of the SYSTEM CONNECTORS is the small carrying handle created when the quick disconnects are latched together. Download the Info Sheet on the 14 different System Connectors.

I have the OpTech Super Classic myself, and an very satisfied by it. Having tried a number of other straps in the past, it is my current strap of choice.
