    that's why the course he went to, the trainer actually advised him to get those strap that can be unclip easily.

    So far only the optech has this feature (i've seen). But doesn't make sense that the strap is not advisable to be placed inside the cabinet.

    Bought a Optech, comfortable on neck but a pain to tie around your hand.

    Martin might be a better choice for both neck and hand.

    i use optech for ages now. good quality but more important, i can change the connectors around for my requirements.

    Optech straps (or any neoprane strap) are better due to them being able to relieve some pressure on the contact points, giving an impression of weight reduction.

    Also, the pro-loops are handy. I've slung extra connectors to my backpack straps. That way I can use the backpack's straps to handle the weight of the camera instead of using the strap.

    ditto that. good way of relieving your neck from the weight.

    OP carry some matin handgrip. bring your camera to try as some plates may block your battery compartment.

    Optech for me. Useful for many hours shooting. I also remove the strap before storing in dry cabinet.

    1. air dry or washing the strap of perspiration.
    2. save space in dry cabinet.

    1) To prevent more moisture enter the dry cabinet.
    2) To prevent the neoprene material from drying out too much; less elastic & harden.
