Who wants a Pentax "Professional" neck strap?

Apparently these are available for order in Japan:



I don't really use a neck strap, but I am a professional that uses Pentax. Maybe I should get one for my camera bag as a shoulder strap?

In my experience, any piece of gear that says professional on the product or packaging, isn't.

I'd very happily go back to a Pentax branded strap if they made one as good as the one I use now, which this clearly isn't. It would need to have clasps to attach it to a backpack for a start.

Talking about strap.... I am thinking of getting one like this (from ebay), it's cheap 3.99, of course not using it with heavy lens:

I would like one so that when someone asks me if I am a photographer I can say yes...I am a professional, it says it right here on my strap.

Can you provide an URL? It looks good. I'm using a Kata neoprene right now, but one that says Pentax might be nice.

I bought a neck strap with clips and added this pad Planet Waves Gel Guitar Strap Shoulder Pad | GuitarCenter over the back portion.
I have a sigma 100-300 and boy does it make it a lot more comfortable to carry around

This is a very good find !!! I guess I'll have to take a trip to GC -- and with a K-3 in the near future, I'll have to keep my focus on the strap pad only -- so many temptations hanging on the walls. . .

I don't use neck straps much, but this looks like a very nice solution for camera bags with heavy long fast glass.

Thanks.

Hi panoguy,

Nice!

I think I'd rather choose a strap that I like, then have it embroidered at a custom hat/tee shirt shop.

I wanted some different colored Pentax baseball caps, and showed the shop owner a red Pentax logo on the 'net that I assume he copied for my caps. I now have official-looking fitted Pentax caps in tan, navy, and black.

Much easier to get precisely what you want this way than looking to or waiting for Pentax to supply it, IMO.

I'm still using the original LX straps on all my bodies, as I only really loop them around my hand, just black, thin, clean and simple, works for me.
