but problem with thinner and leather strap will not be good if your camera is heavy... i like the one you just shared for my next camera (Fujifilm X100) :)

Thats a nice leather strap.
One thing though, will these leather or vintage looking leather straps look out of place on a dslr?

Yes better for smaller cameras. I have the same one on my x100 but different color. Here is another but different color on my GF1




Btw I may sell the one in the box if anyone is interested. Brand new.

What other straps do you guys recommend which is similar to the one Scott posted?
Need something comfortable.

Scott,
The site you posted i went to the shop twice, twice also bad service and not feel welcome.

You went they late afternoon or when the shop is pack with people? I usually go there earlier when the shop is less crowded. So far i'm OK with them...few young guys and i do have to agree, the way they talk/speak maybe not for everyone... Maybe next time if you want to go again, i can tag along ;)


Cheers!
Scott

Went once 11am and the other time when 7pm.
Their style like no interaction, if ask only answer if not just stand there and expect you to straight buy.
If only go with you only will get good service then their attitude is not right.

Unless its only them who has something i want then looks like i wont be going there anymore hehe.

Anyways lets get back to strap.

Yesterday i was out shooting randomly, but i found out the stock strap is really not comfortable.
Really need something which rest nicely on the neck or shoulder.

Nice!

I like the camo design.
Is it comfortable?

Hmmm found out there is a store in KLCC, if free this weekend will make my way over there.

colours may vary because it's seasonal and certain colours may be discontinued
