Um, google for "camera strap"?

By which I mean to suggest that someone else's favorite may be completely irrelevant to you. Find some candidates, then research them. There are lots of comments about camera straps in this forum, easily searched for.

'Tis a rather personal decision.

Crumpler industry Disgrace is what I use.

My favorite was wide leather attached to the fittings of an old strap. Lenses were heavy then and the wide leather distributed the weight nicely on the shoulder. The leather was hand painted with bright colours. I was young and happy. :lol:

Sounds like a modified guitar strap.

Actually they pretty much were the same back then, except for the clasps on the camera straps. I have a Tamrac strap with flames on it. I am not really picky about them. All I care about is that they come off quickly when I want them to for mounting on my tripod.

I prefer neoprene straps like Op-Tech. They have some flex for comfort and quick disconnects for tripod work.

Shoot, learn and share. It will make you a better photographer.

I don't really have a favorite. If I am shooting on a casual photowalk, I will use my old Tamrac neck strap with leather padding. If I am shooting portraits, I will use my Blackrapid RS-5 (very handy for my 80-200mm) and let the camera hang at my side OR just leave it on a tripod, with group shots the camera will always be on a tripod. :kmonst:

It is what it is.

The best normal strap (as Scotty already said) is the crumpler industry disgrace. I personally use the crumpler convenient disgrace, which isn't quite as comfortable, but let's you detach the strap if you want.

Op/tech are pretty good. Not as good as crumpler though. The op/tech ones are not as comfortable and they make your neck sweat a lot.

The Amazon listing for this strap shows it attached to a tiny P&S :rofl:

Maybe too late for the thread-opener but interesting to others.
Do you know the "sunsniper"?
For me the sunsniper-Pro is good since more than one year.
Don´t know if it is allowed to show the link (I don´t have any connections to them, just as a normal customer)
- if not allowed please delete.

I have a Black Rapid that seems to be really working nice for me.

Same here, good quality and comfortable. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for.
