p.1 #1 · CPS Neck Strap Question


Perhaps this is a stupid question, but when wearing the CPS neck strap, what is the correct way for it to be mounted? In other words, when it is around your neck, does the person behind you see the logo and "Canon" right side up or upside down? There is a reason for the question, but I will hold that issue. I know what I think is correct.

Thanks, Steve

I mount it so the logo is seen by who ever is behind me, this way, when shouldered, the lens kinda rides down my hamstring/lower butt cheek. It's comfy and the lens doesn't hang out the side and bang around on everything....

I'm assuming Theres no right or wrong way but I could be wrong..

My preference would be for it to read "correctly" when worn, but I don't think you'll have your membership cancelled if you wear it differently from someone else.

Going off memory here because I sold mine (like an idiot) but I think it's slightly curved to allow folding over the neck one way a bit more than the other.

it depends on how tall the person behind you is

There was no one behind me to ask to I checked in a mirror -- the logo was right side up but backwards. Seriously, as cputeq says, the padded section is curved (sort of like a canoe) so it form-fits the neck better when the logo is right side up.

What happens if you have a Nikon strap on your Canon?

It's not good. I wouldn't try it!

As others have said, these Op/Tech straps are designed to be read correctly from behind.

I agree. In reviewing the op/tech website it indicates how to wear and set-up the strap. The reason for the question is that when I bought my 1dm4--from a CPS member, he had the strap upside down. I changed it and was good to go. However, I took the camera to Canon last week for a repair and it had the strap attached. When I received the camera back, the strap had been removed and reinstalled upside down. I have reversed it again to be read correctly from behind.

Go figure??

Cheers, Steve

Whenever I send a camera body in to CPS, I always unclip the upper belt of the strap, leaving the ends attached to the camera, as well as removing the eyecup, battery, and media cards (and battery grip if applicable). I add the body cap and battery cover (if I have it!). Canon likes it that way, and so do I -- less bulk for shipping and less worries about parts.

It would be bad.

The correct way would be for the most comfortable feel for you.

I have an OP Tech strap and it doesn't have all the fancy side stitching. Do the sling straps have the stitched edges? Or is this a CPS only thing?

How do you attach this strap. The loops seem too big to get through the slots on the camera?

Poke strong thread or nylon through first and then use that to pull - with force - the strap loops through.
