Replacement strap for Nikon D7000
Apr 10, 2013

Hi,
I want to buy a replacement neck/shoulder strap for my D7000. I've been using the same one that came with the camera for over 2 years since I bought it and although it has served well, it looks pretty rough these days so I'm looking to buy a new one.
I've only just started looking but I don't seem to be getting far and I really don't know a lot about them. I've seen a few straps on the web that connect to the camera via the tripod mount but this isn't what I'm looking for.
I just want a good quality comfortable strap similar to the one Nikon supplies (but better obviously) that attaches the same way. The camera is at its heaviest when attached with a 70-200 2.8 and the battery grip so it would need to be good enough to support this.
Any suggestions?
Thanks

Lowepro and Tamrac make good straps.

I can recommend the Up Strap, I have them on all of my camera bodies even my Canon P&S and my computer briefcase. They are very durable and stick to your shoulder like glue, even on silk or nylon.

Ditto on the UPStrap. I've got one on my D7000. Simple, secure attachment, and I like the longer length.

Crumpler Industry Disgrace. With a 70-200 VRII and a D700, the weight is still heavy, but the neckpiece on the strap seems to spread the weight out, making it comfortable (at least to me).

Op/Tech makes fine products with a variety of quick release connectors. I've been happy with their utility sling strap and Uni-loop connectors which works like the BlackRapid system but use the strap lugs rather than a tripod socket. For under $40 you can get an additional neck strap and extensions that are used an any series of combinations.......check their video on the utility strap which is a shoulder sling ......http://optechusa.com/straps.html

I really like the Crumpler Industry Disgrace. I use it on my D3s and D3x and it is great!

I have used the Domke on my Nikons for years and recently tried the Think Tank strap, its rubber coated and doesn't slip off my shoulder as easily.

Conventional Strap?

* Domke Gripper strap for me for a long, long time. (Disadvantage? Rubber gripper on one side only.)

Fix?

* Wapiti strap is sensational. Be careful and buy the right length.

Other tries (for me?)

* Think Tank strap--has rubber on both sides

* UpStrap--may have to try this one again. Certainly sticks

* Tamrac has several straps with a suede pad. I love the pad. It simply sticks better. I find the width of the strap itself is too wide for the way I shoot

Sling strap?

* I have a Black Rapid strap that is very comfortable to use.

* I HATE the carabiner that they have modified

* I hate storing it in a camera bag; the pad is simply too big on mine

just my 3 cents worth

+1 for the Op/Tech straps - I have the the connectors on all my SLR bodies and a couple of the 'main' straps which I can switch between bodies in a few seconds - they have in-built 'springy-ness' which seems to make the camera feel lighter.
