Hi ambrose21,

I've deleted your duplicate thread in the Olympus section. Our forum rules refer.

Bob.

he he he..

best camera strap for me is the Black Rapid R strap.
http://www.blackrapid.com/

with this strap, you are carrying your camera like a shoulder bag. It feel very natural when you retrieve it.

R strap is the best if you shoot with two cameras.

There is one negative aspect. when you shoot with portrait/vertical/battery grip, the hook to tripod (R strap attach to the camera using tripod mount as connector) are on the way. So it is very uncomfortable.

if you don't use any battery grip, then you don't get this problem.

It wasn't an answer - just an explanation of why I did what I did. The reason we, in common with most forums, have a "one thread per question" rule is to save our member's valuable time being wasted composing answers already provided in a duplicate thread. :idea:

Bob.

I use the Op/Tech USA Reporter strap.

http://www.optechusa.com


I find it very comfortable and has good suspension properties for a big heavy camera. If required it can accomodate 2 camera's

Op-tech Super Classic Strap (Binocular version as it doesn't have quick release clips)

Very comfortable when compared to the supplied strap.
