Title: which Optech Strap to buy?
Post by: OSORIO on March 27, 2009, 02:49:15 AM
need help on choosing w/c optech strap to buy..
between the pro and pro-loop w/c is better? or w/c one do you prefer?
di ba ang function lang ng pro-loop is para kung sa maliliit na pasukan/connection sa camera ang kakabitan?
para kasing mas matibay yung connection ng pro kesa sa manipis na pro-loop?
mas bagong version yung pro-loop kesa sa pro?
may advantage ba yung pro-loop kesa pro, and vise versa?
Also baka may ibang Op/Tech model kayo ma recommend or other brands na din...
San ba best price bumili?
Thanks in Advance.

Im using Pro-Loop for my D90, MB-D80, Tamron 17-50 and SB-800... kayang kaya! I have rapid, pac-safe but i still prefer my optech pro loop...mas comfy talaga sya..

Kay lehboy lang ako bumibili ng optech ko :)

i got the pro loop with d90, grip, 70-200 and sb800. i think the strap can manage the weight (barely) , but i prefer the lowepro strap on gears more than 2 kilos.

i use the Op/tech pro-loop. very comfy, easy to attach/detach, male & female opposite clips is a great idea because it can be used as a handstrap when connected.

remove nyo po yun padded neck strap then attach nyo po yun opposite ends nung pro-loop attachments.

yun pro-loop attachments po ang part nung strap na nakakabit dun sa camera body.

Op-tech Pro loop. Comportable kahit mabigat ang gamit. Kung more than 1 body, kuha ka ng extra connectors para yung strap (center portion) lang ang lilipat mo sa body.

sir, tingnan nyo po yun mga dulo nung padded strap & yun connectors. magkaiba po sila on both ends, 1 male, 1 female. pag di po nakakabit yun padded strap dun sa connectors, pwede po pagkabitin yun dalawang dulo ng connectors since male & female sila.

Pro-loop kasi madaling tanggalin. You may want to check the loop though after using it for a while kasi the constant motion on the rigid camera loops may sooner or later damage the fabric. I also feel that the loops offer better connectivity and assurance that it doesn't slide off from the cam.

aaah ibig sabihin is yung hand strap is for carrying lang ba? hindi yung nakikita ko na strap sa side na added security kapag nagpipic?

sorry po ha, newbie kasi  ;D

eto lang yung nakakatakot. parang cellfone strap eh  ;D

Go with the pro-loop if you want to attach something else with the camera. in my case i have the pro loop strap together with a hand strap bearing the weight of my D80 with 70-200 2.8 & sb800 with 5 batteries. the attachments may look thin/weak but they handle my gear as a piece of cake.

I use PRO LOOP, very easy to use, can carry my D700 + 70-200 + sb-900 no problems at all.

Pero for ruggedness and 100% sure fire easy carrying and usability of the camera, the Black Rapid straps are much better and more comfortable than any neck strap I've used.

So it's OP/TECH for play, and Black Rapid for work.  ;)

The pro loop was my very first neck strap.

Compared sa OEM strap, it can manage heavy gears pretty well.
