Looking for a camera strap

Postby Ruben123 » Sat Apr 28, 2012 10:28 am

Hi guys,

Im a very proud owner of the CameraLoptech stap, but the CameraLabs is wearing out a bit, and I dont want it to become invisible of course. So, Im looking for a replacement.
I find several straps at several prices, from $4 to $20 (my budget's $20 at max.), and Id like to know: are there big differences between neophrene straps, are they all durable enough for some heavy camera equipment? Looking on eBat for instance, I find millions of straps, like this one: http://www.ebay.nl/itm/Camera-Schouderband-Draagriem-Neck-Strap-Neckstrap-/251046630091?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_146&hash=item3a738b92cb#ht_500wt_715

Can you help me out?

I like the Think Tank strap; that is all I use now. While it retails for a bit more than your price range, Amazon indicates pre-owned for under $20 US. This is not a neoprene strap.

Hm, okay, but I think it's not that great to have a used strap. Id think the more expensive the better, wont it be? In that case Ill order the most expensive in my budget.

Thanks for the help anyway!
