    The stock strap for my D200 seems a bit short for me (6'1"), plus it just is not very comfortable hanging around my neck.
    I have looked at different staps
    The U-Strap
    the Tough Strap combo
    Plus Domke, and some others.

    The two I posted links to seem a bit more unique, just wondering if anyone has tried them or something similar.
    I know for a camcorder I have used a tight hand strap like that Camera Armor one and they have been comfortable.

    So, what do you folks use? :confused:

    Op-Tech neoprene straps are very comfortable and help ease/redistribute the weight.

    I agree, Optech. Very comfortable ( although my camera w/ lens is just 1kg),
    and easily detachable. Don't slip easily too.

    I never use a strap round my neck, it's always wrapped around my wrist.

    Thanks, Everyone!

    I need to go to my local store and try some out, but the op-tech sure seems to be the favorite.

    First time you drop and break your camera you'll regret that!

    Do these third party straps actually make a huge difference?
