Re: Show me your neck straps.

You sure couldn't sneak up on anyone wearing that strap.:-)

Re: Show me your neck straps.

Hi

Easily my favourite for lighter cameras is the Crumpler Hitch. Is very comfortable and soft. These are the only pics I have that show the straps. They have quick release and you can swap amongst cameras easily. They also knot to use as a wrist strap.

If/when I move to u4/3, I will get one of these

I have one for a DSLR and LOVE it.  The slider is key.

Re: Show me your neck straps.

So I almost bought the Gordy, but found it a bit thin. Then I was almost all set on one made my Luigi, but I think $100+ is crazy for a simple strap. I ended up getting this one, but I might have to mod it to make more secure as I really don't like the string attachment to the body.

I'm going to try fitting the metal rings into the ends rather than using the strings loops.

Yes, I was tempted by that one myself.   But I've had the Op-Tech straps using that type of nylon string.   It's tough, but exposed to the elements year-round after a year or so it starts to stiffen and fray (UV light I think plays a part).  I've never had one break, but I never left one on long enough to test it.    Just keep an eye on it.

Re: Show me your neck straps.

Bob

How does the Domke strap compare length-wise, to the original E-M1 strap?  I find the OEM E-M1 strap seems a bit short; shorter than the one that came with my E-M5.  If the Domke strap is longer than the factory strap that came with the E-M1, that would make it very appealing to me.

Thank you

I use straps from Roots Canada, they have little air pillows!

I love these straps:

I always use an Optech neoprene strap on all of my cameras. On my FF gear I use the Optech Pro Loop, but on my lighter MFT bodies I find the Optech binocular strap is perfect and inexpensive too.

Re: Show me your neck straps.

Well, I have seen all the straps above and what I find most comforting is my Nikon Strap that I received from Mr. Okada of NPS - Nikon Professional Services a at Suzuka Circuit in July 1982. It is non slip but soft and pliable and it never goes around my neck, always on my shoulder or wrapped around my hand. For me, it is the best. Two images enclosed. Regards to Everyone, Chris

Not sure - I never took the Oly strap out of its wrapper. I'll try to make the time.

In the meanwhile B&H's site says:

Adjustable length up to 42" (107cm)

Re: Show me your neck straps.

My old Olympus 1970s braided strap has worn significantly so i thought i'd invest n something a bit hippyish....

Re: Show me your neck straps.

Although this Lance Camera Strap (Classic Quick Connect) resides on my EM1, I bought it for my since sold EM5. It's a fashion statement at this point as the pictured set up is somewhat heavy. I also have a BlackRapid strap for times when I'll be carrying for extended periods.

I think this a cool setup.

I use blackrapid r-Straps on all my cameras except compacts. This is the smaller lighter "metro" strap. I don't like cameras pulling on my neck. These are shoulder straps that let the camera flow freely up and down. You can easily adjust the positioning and they even make a tripod adapter mount so you can use it with a tripod adapter plate.

Can you describe your gear? I can see the RDS, and the custom lens support.

Re: Show me your neck straps.

This is a great strap and conversation piece. It is very quick to completely remove from the body. You can get rid of the dangly bits that come in the camera lugs. Saw this highly recommended in this forum, but just check the reviews online. Too much $$ for what it is, but it is very nice, very simple.

I had a good neck strap, but my wife won't shut up, so it's around her neck!

Sorry, I couldn't resist, a little humor.
