    Camera strap

    had no idea what area this belongs in so my apologizes in advance if its in the wrong section...

    but i have no idea where to buy a long camera neck/shoulder strap

    im currently using the one that came with my camera and it sits so awkwardly on me.

    im looking for one that sits across my body and i cant find them anywhere!

    any help/website/stores that stock some would be very helpful and 100 thank you's!

    Google "Rapid Straps". There are also a few other versions of them as well but dont know their names. I have the sport version of the Rapid Strap and find that I can comfortably wear my 70-200 for a good few hours without it feeling too heavy.

    I have moved the thread!

    I agree Black Rapid straps would be the way to go.

    I have an UpStrap, which is reasonably nice and very robust, because it is extremely simple. I'm a bit wary of straps with lots of complicated buckles and things, since my old OpTech strap failed abruptly. It was just a matter of luck that no damage was done to the camera. Admittedly it was very old but it gave no warning at all before snapping.
