So your paid to advertise Wapiti straps. Silly comment really. I use canon gear and I am fine if it says canon seeing how if more people buy them then they stay in business. This goes for any product not just canon.
No, only paid by clients. The Wapiti strap is a great strap. That's all. If Canon is relying on their name being on their straps, the company is in dire trouble. There are many photographers who don't want to be a billboard for their camera manufacturer. There are many who wish Canon's telephoto lenses weren't white. Here are a few quotes I've collected to illustrate my point. Maybe my comment was silly.
Can it be any more bling than having a big CANON or NIKON sewn around your strap?
Ideally less bling.
The latest Nikon straps are particularly bad. Massive yellow letters screaming the camera model, the fact that its FX etc etc. I had to dig up some of my old straps that were much more subtle.
In Canons wise wisdom, they realise that anyone touting a 1D MKIV probably does not give a damn whether the straps self proclaim model type or not.
Still the lovely shade of golden pink. It reminds me of cheap nail polish.
Coming from a 5D2 I was worried that the 1D4's strap will scream "rob me, rob me, rob me"
I never use the camera makers strap. Better ones are available. Canon/Nikon aren't paying me to advertise for them so no way I'll use their strap.
I'm sure you can get a customized one - just make sure 1D Mark IV is on it and maybe the sufficient T-shirt to match with the camera strap.
I'd rather the strap have no logo on it.
My 5DmkII strap says "5D markII" on it. Because of this it stays in the box
I used to use the Stock strap on my 1 series bodies, it's actually been the same since the 1DmkII (the Black and Red). I switched to Domke straps a few years ago and I just move them from body to body. I've got a black one on my 5D and a Dark Green and brown one on my 1D, dunno why I like it, but I do
I'd be keen on trying the Thinktank straps though.
