    Camera Straps
    I couldn't agree more. I purchased a body strap recently - although not the brand you linked to - and it made an immediate difference. Not only is it more comfortable, but you look like less of a touristy dweeb. Plus if you're into street photography it seems like people are less intimidated when they see you walking around looking relatively normal, as opposed to having an obvious camera around your neck.

    Re: D700 and Travel question

    I agree that those type of straps are great and I like mine, but I had a bad experience with it attached to my D200. With the camera moving around at my side the D pad menu/ function button got ripped off and lost. My story and fix of that is in the D200 section.

    I'm liking the padded messenger camera bag I got in Japan, just lift the flap take out camera, shoot and put back in. Very protected especially with the bigger f2.8 lenses I have now. I've come to the conclusion that there is no best strap or bag like I had thought, I need different straps and bags depending on the situation.

I know you found something, but this looks pretty good. I would get it if it were not for my current build... All gut no butt. It is by Cotton Carrier. It is pretty cool.

    Thanks Dan! And thanks for the link.

    I like that idea, keeps the camera from banging around. Might have to buy one. I like my bag but it is a bit bulky compared to that sling and belt. Gives me something to think about, maybe a way to tether the camera to a pants belt loop when walking with my sling strap.

    Valid points. I believe that is when I lost my OEM rubber eyecup
