Neck Strap

Looking for a more comfortable neck strap than what came with my K10. Anybody have any recommendations?

Looked at the reviews on this strap and they looked pretty good. Thanks.

I second the Optech! It really helps reduce the 'feel' of the weight of the camera. That is one thing that I won't be parting with anytime soon.

Fourth the optech, and take a look at the "rapidstrap"... it's a slightly different approach that works pretty darn well. You can also DIY it if you want to save a bit of $$$

I like my Lowepro with a neoprene section where it goes around your neck/shoulder.
Seems quite comfortable and easy to live with. It has quick release clips too so can be quickly and easily removed if you are working on a tripod, etc.

Don't follow the crowd, get a vintage 1976 wide tapestry strap and stand out in the crowd.

Hey, I've got two (though I don't actually use them lol)! Got them from a neighbor as part of his grandfather's Konica kit. One of these days I really need to throw some film into those bodies and see what they can do.

i think one of the points of getting a replacement strap for me is to be conspicuous, i don't want to draw more attention from possible thieves which the red pentax stitching on black strap definitely does

I have tapestry straps on all my cameras. ranging from ca. 1964 to 1978. I love em'. comfortable, well broken in and full of character and style.

Or even better, buy a strap and cover it in leopard skin print fleece fabric. I'll post a shot when I get home tonight if I remember.

I use the domke grippers with the thin straps that go down to the camera. They are great for me because they don't fall off your shpulder or ride up on your neck.
