Re: Camera strap for Hiking with a D700?

Like anything else in hiking/backpacking, it's a matter of comfort vs. the environment. Something that hugs your body would be more ideal but you're going to get sweaty whilst hiking. Leave it loose and not only could it crack against your chest, trees, and rocks, but the pendulum manner in which it swings throws off your center of balance. Last time I went hiking I had my little P90 around my neck and with every step it behaved like a grandfather clock - my shirt was pilled to hell after only an hour.
