Hi everyone, just a quick note to let you know ALL the straps have now been posted. Most of the European ones went airmail from the UK mid last week, so you should hopefully have them by mid next week.

I've started a new thread for anyone who wants a strap but missed out on our first run. A second run is not certain, but if sufficient people register an interest we'll consider it. Please only respond if you'd definitely order one.

http://www.cameralabs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=202967

We'll keep this thread here for questions regarding the first run of straps.

Please do reply when you receive yours...

Received mine today. It is a very good strap, feels much better than the standard strap that comes with the camera.

Hurray!

You're welcome! Most of the European orders should arrive any day now - if you don't have them already!

Awesome to know that I own 2% of all these that were ever made. I own 25% of those in NZ, and when I met Gordon over the weekend, the owners of 75% of the national stock of them were in one place :-)

I'm updating the first post in the thread to show the breakdown of where the straps are in the world - and hence your likelihood of meeting someone with one!

Oops ! I forgot to update this thread, although I've posted the shot with the strap on my 50D.
Thanks again Gordon, No. 13 will do wonders (or desasters) :-)
The strap is simply fantastic, it managed to remove some regrets that I didn't buy a lighter camera after a 2 hours walk.

Thanks Radu, it is amazing how a good strap can make a heavy camera feel much lighter!

Now this is a shame. Even the Danish have beaten us Dutch in quantity.
