    Beyond comfortable, got small little pouches at the side of the strap to store SD/CF cards plus AA batteries, what more can one ask for?

    A friend brought it back from the states from me, but don't fret, around April GIN studios in Singapore will be distributing Kata products, so look out for it at your favourite camera store!

    neckstrap to me is impt if u need to change lenses in all kinds of conditions in a few seconds..
    combined with a slingbag..u can hang ur strap ard ur neck & swap lenses instantly..
    for people who don't need to swap so fast a handstrap would be better..
    for those pros...well..they use two bodies hahaha...

    Just wondering how you managed to squeeze both the handstrap as well as the neckstrap onto the same eyelet? One's easy, but the moment I try to put more than one, it becomes quite a task for me. And doesn't one interfere with the other in terms of movements?

    one thing is the cam will not be horizontally straight. cos of the diff set of tying the straps to the cam and the base of the wristgrip.

    but it certain lighten my cam load and i have better grip....my hands always shaken when i carry the cam too long (during focusing)...me char=bor..no strength.

    I tried a wrist grip, but din like as it hinders my fingers' movement to access the control buttons and slows me down when I need to change lens.

    So it's camera straps on both my cameras for me.

    This is a very nice thread about neckstrap.

    I checked the optech in J3:16, and Matin in TCW.
    And Matin is better.
    Matin has quick disconnect (joint)

    I bought mine in Perly, it is cheaper there.

    I use neckstrap so that the camera body can hang free when I change lens.

    Sometimes I use two camera bodies when shooting, so I need the neckstrap to hang the body.

    I have gone from 2-point mount to 1-point mount so that the strap does not get in the way when I bring it up to the "fire" position.

    I've never used a strap with my 30D since getting it in November.
    my 300D never uses a strap either, straps always get in the way

    however, I wouldn't mind getting a handstrap! they feel secure!

    It all bouys down to personel preference. I switched from hand-strap to neck strap for my 30D

    Previously when handstraps were unheard of, I would wrap the neckstrap around my hand till its fairly tight; much like a handstrap. Camera body+zoom lens+motor drive+flash+12 AA batteries = very good workout.
    same here ...end of the day .. your master hand aches like hell
