Camera straps.

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??

Re: Camera straps.

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

Re: Camera straps.

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.

Re: Camera straps.

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

Re: Camera straps.

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.

Re: Camera straps.

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.

Re: Camera straps.

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.
