What strap are you using for the Q?

Recommended Posts

One day  - in a moment of weakness I splurged, and purchased a "Redier" strap - sub titled "Fashion up your gear".  I actually like it now having used it for over a year.  Very comfortable.  I really appreciate the short ties (they gave me two sets) which allow me to very quickly take off the strap when mounting on a tripod and  my two main camera systems can share the same strap.

Deadcameras Slim Strap works the best for me. It comes in a few different lengths & they will even personalise it with a red dot if you want. It maches the black Q well. Other colour dots are available.

I have an A&A silk strap. I'm not sure how much "give" you are looking for but the strap functions perfectly and looks brilliant.

 

It's also extremely uncomfortable around the neck and I won't be buying another.

 

The best strap that I have is a lightweight nylon Pentax strap which I have used for years on a Leica M7. It functions perfectly well and is broad enough around the neck or on the shoulder to be comfortable also makes me feel a bit less like a Leica fanboy.

 

Most importantly it definitely helps my camera take better pictures.

Peak Design wrist strap. I've come to truly appreciate their products.

Yep, me too. First bought the Peak Design backpack when I had the Canon 5D. Very functional with modern design. Compliments everywhere. Then I bought the Peak Design Quick Strap so I can interchange it with my smaller bag or camera quickly as needed.

 

Once I bought the Q, I got the Peak Design Everyday Sling 5L which works wonderfully as it has enough room for the Q, plus a few filters and the GorillaPod X1. 

 

And lastly bought the Peak Design Wrist strap.

 

I guess they hooked me in for a while.

After using a couple of A&A straps, a woven and an adjustable, and a Dead Cameras shoulder strap I finally sprung for a Benz. Right out of the box it's a perfect fit, feels good, doesn't slip off my shoulder and looks great (the iPhone pic doesn't do it justice). I look forward to breaking it in.

Nice one. What size is it?

The strap in the box seems to work well enough so far.  I'm thinking of going with one of the contrast stitched M straps (18776) with the ring protectors.

The most next to nothing strap I can find: a thin, narrow, flat strip of nylon with very small quick release clips very close to the camera, such that when I undo it, the Q has very little attached to it.  On the right I have a second quick release "clip-tag" through the same mount hole, to attach a wrist strap, again of thin, flat nylon.  I prefer the camera quickly releasable from all straps.  Removed, the flat straps go into the bag easily taking up almost no room, and the camera has a minimum of attached "stuff."
