    hey guys

    since i will be using my d70 in a few pretty touristy places soon, i was
    thinking about getting a neck strap that doesn't scream "nikon" that loud.
    so - here my question: what strap would you guys suggest me to get?
    preferrable neutral black and rather affordable. a nice cushioning wouldnt
    harm either but is no necessity.

    thanks a bunch!

    Turn it upside down.

  5. I've used Tamrac N-45 straps for all my cameras for years. They are
    nylon webbing, but have a nice large suede pad...I find them quite
    comfortable.

    HTH,

    I prefer the Tamrac to the Optec, a little old school, maybe, but I like it.
    Black nylon strap with lightly padded sueded leather pad.

  7. That's one of my favorite features of their straps. I use them on almost all
    of my cameras (don't have one attached to my Mamiya 7, Voightlander or AE-1
    but all my Nikon gear has them) and most of the time carry them around with
    out the neck strap attached. The other nice feature about these straps (and
    any strap with a quick release clip) is that I can have four bodies in my
    bag but only have to have one strap for the lot of them.

    no, but it is the most noticable and easy to switch thing. i am aware of the
    fact that this will not eliminate all risk.

    hi lee
    thanks for the suggestion - ill check them out next time i get near a camera
    store. he only downside is that i'd prefer to buy a leather-less strap, as i
    am vegan. but who knows - half the time they use fake leather for products
    like this anyway.

    Actually Tamrac has something similar, but not opposite like Optec, and you
    have to buy a separate piece.

    I agree. I think Domke camera straps are the best you can get.

    comfortable, but I don't know model details.

    You might want to check out the Tamrac N-25...it is neoprene with quick
    release latches on both sides...I use it on every camera body I own. (about
    $20)
