    Camera straps?

    I'm carrying my camera on my shoulder, and I would like to buy a strap that will not fall off. I don't need any padding on it, and flexibility is more important. Also, I need clips on the end of it, to clip it to my camera.

    How much are these? I would like a short one.

    Marko, I recommend UpStrap. It is of high quality, and available in a variety of configurations.

    Here is their website.

    Check Gordy's camera straps too. Very simple but really cool.

    I like neoprene straps. But I also have one from Tamrac that has leather suede in the center of the strap that tends to keep it from falling off the shoulder.

    I just wrote a review of a fabulous new camera strap, handmade by a photographer in Montana.

    Voigtlander strap is nice.

    From cameraquest.com

    New Deluxe Voigtlander Camera Strap, Black high strength fixed length 3/4" rope fabric, reinforced leather on the neck and ends, leather inserts to protect camera body from strap rings, "Voigtlander Germany Since 1786" on leather insert, much nicer than the standard strap. Fits most RF cameras. $35 Black

    I have on on my M3. It suits me fine. Very soft; felt zone on shoulder area is slip-resistant.

    In Canada, order one from bigcameraworkshops.com - Burlington, Ont.

    I like the Domke Gripper straps without the swivels, although they use split rings , not clips. They sell for about $13.00.

    What are split rings? Like the stuff on a keychain?
