Camera Straps and Wrist Straps

My Camera Straps
Classic (RS-4) Camera Strap. This is my favorite strap if I needed to carry one camera body. It really works for me and I can carry my dslr with whatever lens is attached, it just makes it really easy and comfortable.
The BlackRapid Classic (RS-4) Camera Strap is a lightweight and low profile strap with the length adjuster on the front of the shoulder pad for quick adjustments on the go. The shoulder pad of the strap has a small zipper pocket suitable for a couple of memory cards or similar small items. The bottom of the shoulder pad has light airy foam covered by mesh for comfort and breathability.

CowboyStudio Double Camera Harness/Strap for Digital SLR and Video A cheap strap that works great. Overall, together with the simple mod that I did, I’m really happy with this strap when to shoot using to DSLRs. I used it with a Canon EOS 7D with Canon EF 70-200mm F/2.8L and 2nd Canon EOS 7D or 60D with EF-S 10-22mm F/3.5-4.5. With the simple modifications that I made, I’m confident that the gear won’t fall down accidentally. I’ve use it in the field shooting sports all the time and it really works great for me. I wrote a short review on this that you can read here.
Anti-Slip Quick Rapid Camera Shoulder Strap This is a knock-off of the Black Rapid RS-Sport . I got it for less than $15 on Amazon . It’s a nice strap for DSLR and considering the price, it’s a no brainer. I find it comfortable and durable, I have use many times with the Canon EOS 7D with the EF 70-200mm F/2.8L which is a heavy combo. I also found out that I can use it as a Dual Camera strap when I’m shooting with a DSLR and a mirrorless camera as a second body, by attaching the OP/TECH 1301442 USA Mirrorless Sling Strap Adaptor to the underarm tether security strap I can now attached a mirrorless camera or a point and shoot camera.. It really works great for this setup. I thought of buying the Blackrapid RS Sport but it’s too expensive. For those on a tight budget, this is a good strap.
OP/TECH USA Utility Strap – Sling This is the strap system that I now use for all my mirrorless camera, this includes OP/TECH USA SLR Wrist Strap which is what I use when I want to carry the camera around instead of the sling strap. I also bought extra OP/TECH USA Uni-Loop System Connectors for all my mirrorless cameras and just switch the Wrist Strap and Utility Sling Strap between them. This strap system was originally designed for DSLRs, but I really like this strap for my mirrorless .
OP/TECH USA SLR Wrist Strap . When walking around with a mirrorless like the EPL-7 or the OMD EM5 or even the Fuji X-E1, this wrist strap is great, it’s comfortable and it’s durable, best of all it uses the same OP/TECH USA Uni-Loop System Connectors.
OP/TECH USA Compact Sling for Cameras (Black) . This is a nice sling strap for small mirrorless cameras and point and shoots. If you have a compact system camera like the EPL-3, the GM1 or a small point and shoot, this is perfect. I tried to use it on the OMD EM5, FUJIFILM X-30 and the FUJIFILM X-E1, but I did not like it, it’s too small for those cameras, and I’m not confident that the Mini QD Loops, will hold them.
