Just a quick question.I will be doing a lot of all day walking this spring/summer and was wondering about camera straps for comfort.
Does anyone have an Op-tech Pro and how do you find it??
Any other recomendations??

My son and a relative both have this strap on their binoculars. They both find the strap excellent for prolonged use.

I use this strap on the E-3.

Fantastic and very comfortable.

I sometimes take the neck park of the strap off, connect the two ends of the camera end, wrap it around my wrist as a wrist strap for one handed use.

reccomended.

I got a nice Hama strap recently - cheaper than Optech but does everything it does. Looks nice with my grip too :)

Hi Andy,
Just recived a Tamrac Neoprene Boomerang Strap (N5057) this morning from Warehouse Express 9.99 reduced from 16.99 plus 3.99 p&p, very well made and very comfortable. it has to memory card pockets on it too, big improvement over the origional oly strap (E-500).:)

Thanks for this,hope you get on well with the new strap.I ended up with the Op-tec.I am away in the Netherlands next week so the camera will be round my neck all day.

This will be the test as to how comfy it is.

Been using that strap now for 15 yrs (still the same one) and it never failed me. Till June 2009 it was on my analog Ricoh slr. :)

Use one on the E3 and EM-5 very comfortable and you don't get that annoying pain in the neck as you do with the usual straps highly recommended.
