    Best strap for 7D

    Looking for endorsements on the best strap for my 7D. I find the supplied strap slides off my shoulder and sits on my chest. Would like something non slip and sits lower (hip level). My walk around lens is a ef 18-200.

    Canon 7D, Canon 24-105mm f4 L, Canon 18-200mm IS, Canon 18-55mm, Canon 70-300mm, Canon 50mm 1.4 USM, Sigma 10-20mm UWA Canon 400D

    How do I change my signature?

    Use mine over the shoulder all the time to take the weight off my neck.

    Considering how much a lot of cameras cost, the straps they supply are pretty cheap and nasty.

    Being in the leathergoods business, I made up a nice pad out of some very soft sheep leather with lots of soft padding for my strap, and I find the padding really makes a world of difference.
    I find it especially useful for doing videos, as I hold the camera up in front of me, with the pad centered on my neck, and push the camera out to get some tension in the strap, and I find I can do very steady videoing hand held using this system.
    The Crumpler strap looks pretty good too. I'll have to go and check one out in their Newtown store.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    Op tech for me. Tried the crumpler, material was too rough for my liking. 7D gripped + 70-200 f2.8 mk2 feels easy to handle with the strap.
