Looking for a recomendation for a solid camera strap with a good quick release system on it. Been using a tamarack strap for years, but the metal claps are beating the crap out of the cameras.

I use an Op/Tech strap that they made for the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite. It seems similar to the "classic" strap they sell now. It's very effective and has no metal. I like the softness and I like the quick release clips (reliable; they've never released except exactly when I've opened them).

+1 on the Op/Tech. I have the Pro Strap and recently added the utility strap to it and an extender (the utility strap is not really long enough to wear over a coat). Carries a 1d2, 100-400L, 580ex2, all on a custom brackets digital pro-e bracket while i am hiking with no problem. The stretchy material helps tons on the shoulder weight. Even works well across a vested interest vest full of gear which is a big +.

I use to also use an Up-Strap but I never felt my gear was totally secure hanging from the outside of my shoulder instead of across. The strap is not suppose to move but I found it did on occasions. I didnt move much, just a bit, but that movement is unnerving.

I really like this instead of a strap around my neck: http://www.viddler.com/v/64c0d21b

I use both 1D series cameras, and 5D series, and depending on what lenses are mounted, it can get heavy. Not to disrespect any of the Optech fans, but I have Optech and the Upstrap, and the Upstrap wins for me.

http://www.upstrap-pro.com

The Upstrap is designed so it doesn't move at all when on your shoulder. It is very positive, and feels like it is locked onto the load. I have never used any other strap that holds onto my shoulder as well.

The Optech is nicely made, and a little more comfortable to wear, but even with its anti-slip it still moves around more than I like. There is also an elasticity to it-it stretches a bit-and I don't like how that feels when walking and moving around.

The Upstrap comes in several different configurations, and if you need the quick release, it is available that way.

The Op/Tech sling strap. Same as the Canon CPS strap, but without the cost of buying it from someone here on the board.

black rapid. I have heard many photographers complain about other quick release strap types failing.

I think your subject title is missing an extra letter R

I bought 2 upstraps for my Canon 1 serie bodies and another 2 for big lenses.
Quit happy with them.

Have been a Domke bag n strap user for decades, recently tried the OP/TECH Pro loop strap; it's like the CPS straps, and really like this strap. Put it on my heavyest body; an EOS-3 w/grip, and it fits across my shoulder well, feels great and it may just be my new strap across ALL my bodies. Time will tell if I switch over completely, it's pretty impressive and not expensive

I have been using the OpTech straps for many years, and really like them. A quick release is very important for me, and the OpTech one is very reliable. I also like the system approach that OpTech offers, where I can adapt straps to a variety of things besides camera bodies, and extend the strap length if I want to. I suggest you start off with a strap and some Pro Loop ends for your camera body, and see how you like it.

I like the plain OpTech Pro straps for dslrs and Domke 1" straps for smaller cameras. I used a black one for the B&W camera and a colored one for the color cameras so I would know which one to grab shooting weddings but now that I gave up film, I just use black

I saw that CPS straps were going for quite a bit on ebay so I sold mine and paid for most of my membership. That one I still don't understand but it worked out in my favor.
