I am looking for something for my d7200 that is long enough for my camera to rest on my hip. Now it sits on my chest and bounces all over.


Pro Strap and Pro Loop Strap - Camera Straps | OP/TECH USA

The Optech Pro goes to 129.5cm length, their Utility Strap goes to 134.5. Don’t know how that would work for you?

Op/Tech make extensions if you need an even longer strap. I hang my camera over one shoulder with the lens toward my body for better protection for the front element and easier access to the grip.

I hate neck straps with a passion. I used an ebay knock off Black Rapid (sport style) that worked well, but not the best looking thing in the world.

I now have a single leather sling style strap from Kawa Pro. Hand made and even has my business name cut into it.

I also had the Black Rapid double for wedding duties. But this has now been upgraded to a Hold fast Moneymaker which is simply gorgeous! And even more comfortable.

I love the Black Rapid straps.  I have one for a single body and one for 2 bodies...I also have some OpTech straps and to be honest, I like the BR better for my normal shooting.  I do like the option of "shortening" the OpTech strap and have used them as well.  The nice part about the OpTech - and the part that I dislike the most - is the neoprene center section.  The slight "stretch" which makes for a comfortable wear also always manages to make me nervous when I am moving and feel the stretch even though I know it is plenty strong!  The BR works best for when I'm running with 2 bodies.  I have my longer lens on my monopod and my shorter on the BR strap at my hip.  It stays out of the way when I'm shooting the longer lens and swings up quick when I change to the shorter lens.

The main problem I have with a lot of straps... both the OpTech double and the Black Rapid Double included, are that when I'm wearing them I feel like one of the guys in the 101st Airborne getting ready to jump into Normandy. I realize that if you're carrying long lenses and the like, you need all the protection you can get but still...

My Holdfast Moneymaker makes me feel like a detective with a gun holster.

Also, at least with the OP-Tech, verticals could be uh.... awkward.
