    Would anyone have a reference to a handy diagram on exactly how to feed a
    new neckstrap through the anchor points and then backwards and forwards
    around the strap buckles on a nikon camera? Thanks for any help.

    I hate the strap mountings on Nikons. Does anyone do a swivel mount that
    stops the strap from twisting/tangling?

    Funny how that's nearly[1] identical to the way the Nikon guy
    demonstrated then.

    [1] He did number 4 from top to bottom rather than from bottom to top.

    I don't own any Nikon to know much about the Nikon strap, but many Canon
    users think the Nikon strap is one of few Nikon outstanding features<BG>. Or
    some Canon users replace the Canon strap with Nikon strap.

    Nikon has an edge on the lens caps, but the standard strap is about as
    bad on Nikon or Canon; the big difference being that all Canon cameras
    seem to have the same so you can't tell from behind if it's a 1Ds or a
    mere 1000D, while thieves can more easily target owners of the more
    expensive Nikons. I've replaced my "EOS DIGITAL" by a more anonymous,
    more practical (split rings) and much more comfortable neoprene strap.

    I have different Canon lens caps from different manufactures, I think
    there is some difference but I don't pay close attention to it to remember
    the small detail. Or I have older Canon film, lens from Canin, Sigma,

    I do read many people shop for 3rd party strap and I was about to try one
    myself, but for some reason that idea slipped out of my mind.

    I can't believe all this fuss over how to secure a neckstrap on a
    camera. I modified mine by adding a very short strap on each side
    connected to a pronged release (top left at this page:
    http://www.strapworks.com/Plastic_Harware_s/18.htm ) so I can quickly
    remove the neckstrap when I'm using the camera on a copy stand or a
    tripod. It catches on things if you don't.

    I never remove the short tabs, and just figured out how to feed the
    strap so it wouldn't pull loose.

    Of course using a Canon Strap Knot on a Nikon is likely to find you
    winding up dead behind the "Pro-Tent" at any of Gods (Nikon) Photo

    It may look the same as a Nikon Strap Knot but true disciples of Gods
    Own Camera will know.....

    Now where did I put my tablets. :))))

    Thanks... THEY have put them back now..... THEY removed them and hid
    them when they took the strawberries*.

    see Cain Mutiny, great roll by Bogart. :)
