    Camera straps

    Looking to replace the neckstrap with either a blackrapid or Sunsniper. Blackrapid seem to be more readily available - are sunsniper straps available anywhere else other than their website?

    Thanks

    John

    Somewhat OOT. I use optech straps. I don't like the camera hanging upside down feeling of the black rapid. Personal preference.

    I'm another Black Rapid user. I had the stitching come apart on my first one, took it back and it was an instant exchange, no questions asked. The new one has stood up to plenty of use even with a 5D2+grip with 70-200 lens attached. I couldn't imagine going back to a standard strap now.

    Never make the same mistake twice, there are so many new ones, try a different one each day

    Im with KeeFy I don't like the camera hanging upside down. I picked up a Kata Reflex E at Georges in Sydney. When worn over one shoulder it hangs down past my hip with a fair bit of adjustment left, the upper section is made from stretchy stuff, it has 2 little pockets for SD cards and remote, not big enough for a phone . While its not a quick as a blackrapid its still quick enough for me.. Cheers
