    I am using Op/tech strap with a thicker, broader soft padding. Somehow due to more area the pressure spread out, making the camera feel "lighter". Feel more comfortable than using the canon strip which is thinner. Less slip too when hang on the shoulder.
    Saw TK foto selling $35.

    Define "good", define "not too expensive".
    Have a look at shops like Orient Photo, TK Photo and others, they have straps on the shelf. I use Optech, with detachable center part it becomes a small hand strap.

    I use both Optech and blackrapid... when I know that I am not going to use any tripod, I will usually use my blackrapid, if I know that I will be using tripod, then I would use my Optech.

    If you are going for something that is cheaper (less than S$100), Optech is quite cheap...
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    Hi Cupid33,

    I dun really know how to advise you as I don't know how much is expensive for you. I mean price is really subjective. Comfort level wise, I'm using crumpler industry disgrace.. Bat $30+

    Try the "Q-Strap" if you're on a budget, look for sellers in this forum. if Budget is not a problem, then go for Black-Rapid. Both works excellent for me, you can even google or watch the reviews in youtube. a little research won't hurt.

    Neck strap is rather painful after hours as for me, sling strap is much more comfortable even after whole day shooting.

    I use 2 cameras for > 10hours at one go on Canon original neck straps.
    I take it as training.


    I end up with a tougher right shoulder and neck (and a bloody weak left hand).
    Best thing is the leather like material. Does not slip, does not absorb sweat, does not smell.

    Does the handstrap-convertible op/tech comes in neck strap form?

    Hate at first sight for rapid and slings. Just not my cup of tea.

    hate it or not, it is the most secure strap you can use when travelling in not so safe places.

    Hi Daredevil, the black rapid sling actually very secure? I got the RS7 but never kena grab from snatch thief yet But it had a plastic clip which don't feel very strong.
