Hi I'm looking for those neck straps for my camera other those standard ones that comes with the camera, do you all have any good recommendations? Thanks.

I got a Martins. Tried my friend's Optech. I think as long as it is neoprene material, it will be more comfy than ur current Nikon strap

:bsmilie: then mai tu liao bro mahojazz...
also i think it is more hygenic as e original strap tends to smell after a few use. due to pespiration etc.

yeah i agree with "giantcanopy" too....esp if u r using thos BIG guns, it will definetly be more comfy ;p

yea...using a Optech too. It reduces the weight greatly as compared to the original strap.

Thanks for the feedback! Looks like I will go checkout the Optech one. And it seems Cathay is selling it cheaper. Cheers!

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
