I could not agree more! I have been using Domke straps on all my cameras for the last 15 years or so.
Discreet and they can take a lot of damage before you have to replace them.

I actually really like the stock leather straps that came with my M 10's.

Agree on Op-tech. Use it on Mamiya 330 and 645 as well as on Kiev 88. Very very nice on heavy cameras.

Also, it is great on Leica M5.

Very comfortable and practical.

I got this versatile strap that's got a lifetime guarantee! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-amazing-promi

I wasn't disappointed when it arrived it lived up to expectations, and it's my perfect strap (I've tried loads)!

For my needs / likes, I prefer the Classic Non-Adust from Lance:

https://lancecamerastraps.com/classic-non-adjust/

You can customize the length which is important to me. I like 44 inches...

Also, Yosemite Straps...

I like leather. It looks better as it ages and it lasts nearly forever with minimum care. A few years back, with no prior knowledge other than just looking at the online photos, I ordered a Ciesta strap from Amazon. Standard leather strap with nylon webbing that attaches to the camera. Turned out to be one of the best purchases I have made in camera accessories. I've bought several since then. They're on all my cameras today and I still like them. Price varies from a little less to a little over $40.

Since I first posted in this thread, I've been buying Hyperion straps as I need new ones.
Really nice, good price, and lots of color choices--there are more options than just green ( ).

I hear that the newest thing in camera straps is a multi-colored, french braided speaker wire camera strap. Unbreakable, oxygen free copper, flexible, looks fantastic, and best of all, if one is in need of speaker wire to connect a speaker to an amp one can make the ultimate sacrifice and use their strap to keep the party going. Its the sort of thing that a good photographer would do; no doubt about it.

NICE!
A bit off topic, Rob, but gotta say, your chunky little Contax with its chunky little lens looks very appealing.

Thanks!
It fills a pretty specific niche, for me, and so far does that very well.

I love the fixed length artisan and artist straps. Simple and looks nice.

I've tried multiple designer straps and keep going right back to the strap Leica has included with every camera sold going back to at least the M6. It's comfortable and durable.

No one has mentioned the Peak Design Leash. Easily adjusted, long enough to be used as a cross body strap, not very expensive and the attachment anchors are made from the same nylon thread used for sport kites. I use a couple of Nikon triangular split rings with the plastic bumpers through the strap lugs.

Favorite camera strap?

I like the cheap chimese "PU leather" wrist straps from China, and thinner paracord neck straps (the thick ones are too stiff) long. enough to wear bandolier style. They are also cheap to make though the only paracord i could find locally was either too thin or rough feeling. What i like about long thin paracord straps is you can twist a knot or two into them to alter the length as you need to at the time.

Are you concerned about the clips damaging the finish of the camera?
