 Post subject: Camera straps?
PostPosted: Sun Jun 21, 2009 12:24 pm 
I'm not sure if this belongs here but I'll try it here anyways. Does anyone have any suggestions for good straps that are ideally comfortable and travel friendly?

I've been using a Lowe Pro Voyager C strap for some time and its wide neoprene construction makes carrying big and heavy cameras or binoculars much more comfortable.

Under the strap is a non-slip backing which keeps it secure around your neck or shoulder, and there’s quick-release buckles for when you need to remove the camera in a hurry. Another strap to consider that’s recommended by several Camera Labs forum members is the Optech Pro.

I've seen a very (from the looks of it) comfortable strap.
Brand: Crumpler
name: the industry disgrace

unfortunately for me it's only sold in the usa/canada and the shipping costs from amazon and adorama for only the strap are very expensive.

I got an OPTECH Super Classic strap and am really pleased with it.

It is neoprene like the OPTECH PRO strap but the shoulder padding is not as wide.

I also went for the NON quick release version (on right in linked picture) as I don't want any accidents :wink:
