    Camera Strap

    I am looking for a new strap to hold my camera, I would prefer one without quick release clips or anything like that, can anybody suggest any suitable models?

    Paul,
    I use the Op Tech strap, specifically the "Pro" model -
    http://optechusa.com/product/detail/...&CATEGORY_ID=4
    apart from being very comfortable (I regularly use with 50D+Grip+70-200_2.8LIS) it has a sturdy quick release clip and a whole range of optional attachment straps -
    http://optechusa.com/product/detail/...RODUCT_SUB_ID=
    I have attached 'extra' ones to other camera(s) & binoculars and easily swap strap between them as required.

    I purchased mine on the 'bay...

    +1 for Optech pro straps

    I also use Rapid Straps which have quick clip on/clip off ability but they're not neck straps.

    I have the crumpler one too, actually just bought one for my father, and he seems to like it as well.
    it's a little longer then the stranded straps and a lot more comfortable
    I also have a R-strap which I use for street shooting... well i really use it for anything that doesn't require a tripod as it takes up that thread in the bottom of the camera. It's just a lot more natural to use than a normal neck strap. i get a fair few curious photographers coming up to me wondering how it handles.
    here's a link

    +1 for the R-Strap. I love it, also use it all the time when not requiring a tripod. Very comfortable. Worth watching the videos on Black Rapid's site to see how it works as I'm sure it's not for everyone.

    I bought the Safari Strap from Naturescapes.

    My good mates Mark and Michael from "Trekkabout" also got them after I showed them mine.

    Carries the weight with a better distribution and easy to unclip when mounting to your tripod.

    I have the Crumpler strap and it's great. I have been thinking about getting an R-Strap though, as I prefer to sling my camera to the side and the Crumpler strap is just a fraction too short to do it comfortably.

    R-Straps are brilliant, either single or double!

    all and any feedback welcome

    +1 for the R-Strap. I made my own one from 25mm webbing, but I used their fittings that I picked up cheap. Lets the camera be ready at a moments notice and awesome when 2 bodies are used.
