    optech is a good choice, but probably more expensive than his tripod

    then they will be more than half the price of his tripod

    do note what a cheapo tripod can potentially damage your more, i assume, expensive camera sitting on it.

    I don't know what's the quality of tripod bags now, but the bag i had that came with my cheap tripod tore at the bottom and couldn't be repaired. I bought the optech strap at $30 all the same, 'cos i know i'll be upgrading my tripod in the future.

    the strap sounds good.. afterall, can be use for your future tripods should you change

    when i went on my backpacking trips.. i usually carry by hand as it is a hassle to take out from bag everytime.. the strap sounds like a good idea for myself too

    i wonder where to buy the manfrotto kinda strap for my manfrotto tripod... cos its directly hooked onto the hole on the centre column & the head area... meaning, unlike the optech one, which 1 side is clip onto the head area & another 1 is going to clip onto the 3 legs when its all closed up nicely... not really useful for quick deployment. the nice part about optech is the neoprene material, dun think those manfrottos 1 have this material.

    A old/spare camera shoulder strap works fine for me

    Yeah agree with you about the quick deployment issue. Just bought a opTech tripod strap without checking. If I had known earlier maybe I will just get a opTech camera strap to use as a tripod strap.

    Maybe can modify?

    mayb have to sew a clip or carabina onto the end of the strap, sacrifice the snap-on... problem is, how 2 sew?
