hi guys,

may i know what is the ultimate camera strap for u?
i would like to know what works for you.
u see, i have the privilege to travel to new york and los angeles quite often and have access to stuff unavailable in singapore.
usually i get amazon to deliver it to my hotel.
i am a nooby and i am sure with your vast experience it photography, u r bound to swear by some strap.
pls, no generic answers like all straps work, just depends on what u want to use it for.
state your preference, and i'll do my research.
many thanks.

Get a Optech Pro Loop, once black, there's no turning back.

I replaced the original strap mainly because it's troublesome to unstrap/re-strap everytime I need to place the camera into/out of the underwater housing. Using a BlackRapid RS4 now which attaches to the the camera tripod mount.

CP = Cathay Photo, at Peninsular Plaza.

OP = Orient Photo, at 6th floor Sim Lim Square

Prices are quite the same, just that they are the ones that carry those straps, and they are respectable stores.

I tested in the shops quite a few straps recommended by many here prior making my choice
In the end chose Crumpler Industrial Disgrace.
https://www.crumpler.com.sg/flash/flash.aspx#/english/product-details/industry-disgrace-id02a.html

Very basic strap. no other tricks up its sleeves
But met my basic needs of having a comfy strap.
It just don't cut into my neck like straps that c/w cams do even after a 3 hours walk with it with my 1.2?kg cam+lens.

PS I'm new here, don't bite :)

afterall, straps are like bags, it boils down to personal preference. If u are comfortable with this and it does its job, then u can stick with it.

Yup, Everyone has their own preference. Can't just base on feedback and buy 1 w/o testing.
CS members' preferences can use it as a shortlist to test all out. :thumbsup:

pardon me for asking, this crumpler industry disgrace,
is it long enuff to take picture on a side sling?the current op/tec 1 that im using is not able to do that, cos its kinda short...

im looking for something that works like blackrapid rs4 kinda function, where can do a side sling n still shoot without the need to unsling

I have been using the original strap for 8 months. 2 problems I experienced.
1) can be tiring hanging around your neck whole day.
2) strap difficult to remove and not hygienic to keep inside dry cabinet.

I recently change to the sling type. Used for a day and i think I like it. Got to be careful as it swing a lot and don't hit anything. May want to shorten so that camera is higher and less swing.
