    Default Dslr sling strap

    Any suggestions for a nice dslr sling strap (using Nikon d7000)

    Pls also hint the indicative price and place to buy, thank you.

    nice or comfortable?
    Ususally they both don't go hand in hand haha..
    But i've personally used a few straps and nothing beats the Black Rapid straps…
    Makes everything easier..

    I don't use straps. Find them cumbersome. I did buy one for my x100. Google www.barton1972.com

    There are quite a few out there, can't remember the price anymore. These are Blackrapid (can get from Cathay Photo, TKfoto, SLRR, etc), Sunsniper (John 3:16), C-loop (artworkfoto), etc.

    All these strap are pretty alright and comfortable.

    Using Black Rapid RS 7, about 90+ from TK foto. Comfortable but will worry about the connection between the strap and camera at first.

    My fav... Camdapter Sling strap... Sold my Black rapid immediately after I got it. Nothing comes close, not even black rapid.

    i'd definitely recommend blackrapid (i use the RS4) - great design, n works beautifully together with my canon E2 handstrap.. depending on where/what im shooting, i use one of these two straps.. never had any trouble. comfortable too

    I bought my BlackRapid RS-Sport at Cathay Photo for $124. I believe you can buy it used for about $90.

    I have no regrets about my purchase. It's excellent for street. I like its ergonomic contoured design, as well as the underarm strap, which secures the strap in place on your shoulders.

    The strap is an indispensable part of my gear, and I have walked for hours with my D7000 and small primes.

    I also bought a FastenR-T1 and a Manfrotto quick-release plate to easily switch between my strap and tripod.

    so far several of my buddies have already moved to this strap. One of the best, because when slung, the camera points down and will not swing or spin around like the black rapid, carryspeed or sunsniper. And it is the only one with military grade hardware. Just take a look at their metal connectors.
