Actually it is a matter of time my neoprene will start smelling haha.
The Nikon strap is some tough nylon material that can really cause quite bit of abrasion as well. ( wearing collarless ) Happened to me during my first hol trip with my camera. The neoprene less so. ( Of course i am sure alot of ppl will wear collar shirts and put the strap over it. )
The large surface area and thick stretchy padding of neoprene can help with abit of weight re-distribution as well, especially when walking and the camera setup starts moving ard
oh nos! i think i got cheated >.< bought a brandless strap for 20 bucks at some random shop in funan last time now tempted to get another one. any suggestions so that i wont regret after buying it? :think:
