Replacement neckstrap

The neckstrap that comes with the Em1ii seems a bit large and unwieldy for the camera body and when I pack the camera away most space seems to be taken by the strap. Can anyone recommend a decent alternative?

Re: Replacement neckstrap

I love these: soft and flexible, grippy on both sides, and comfortable even on bare skin at the beach!

Re: Replacement neckstrap

Check out the Slide Lite from PeakDesign. It's a really great strap. They have a whole ecosystem of accessories that work with the strap mounts and ARCA plates as well.

Re: Replacement neckstrap

I use a Peak Design and they are very flexible and easy to use. I have the anchors fitted to both my EM1 (body and grip) and Pen F.
I wouldn't buy anything else however I do use a Sunsniper when I am 'going large'.

Re: Replacement neckstrap

I have actually converted my Think Tank 2.0 strap to use the Peak Design clip system (it took half an hour with a tough sewing needle and some nylon thread, and had the additional advantage of sewing in the loose ends of the TT strap).

I certainly agree the PD clips are really useful when you've got several cameras, a grip and several neck and wrist straps that you like to use on different cameras at different times.

Re: Replacement neckstrap

I use the Op/tech straps - they spread the weight across the back of the neck very well.
