    Re: The Disneyland Photo of the Day...

    A quick gear question for you guys.

    As several have told me, the camera strap that came with my d5100 is becoming less than desirable. So, in looking to my peers out there, what do you have for walking around the parks or anywhere for hours in end?

    I have seen several reviews for the Joby and Black Rapid shoulder slings and they seem intriguing. Thoughts?

    My friend has a RapidStrap and loves it. I have an after-market strap, but it's just like the one that came with it, so I don't know that that's much help to you. haven't seen the Joby one.

    I use a Carry Speed sling. It is similar to the the Black Rapid slings, just a little less $.

    I use the Carry speed system and so far haven't really found any faults with it, The mount plate attaches to the camera can be also attached to a quick release plate to be able to go from strap to tripod. I also love the strap connectors are 2 point system so no one is going to be able to just click the release and have the camera drop.

    I use the Sun Sniper strap on all of my cameras. Overall, I like it and like that the camera just hangs by my side, right at hand level. It does get annoying because the shoulder part of it is always sliding behind me when I'm shooting and that I have to take the strap off of it when using a tripod.

    I use something like the Carry Speed strap if not the same thing. I honestly didn't pay much attention to the brand and model.

    Re: The Disneyland Photo of the Day...

    Thanks for the replied everyone. It sounds like all are pretty similar so I should be fine with whatever I choose.

    One follow up though. It is slightly unnerving to put $00s on a strap only attached to a screw. Would it be possible or prudent to add a safety line to the camera to the strap at another point for added security?

    One other questio. I had was about schlepping your tripod around. Mine came with a carrying bag with an over the shoulder strap. Is tht how all of ou carry yours or is there a better method out there?

    Thanks again.

    Just to add my two cents, I use the Crumpler Industry Disgrace on my camera. It is a classic strap but better. I chase my kids around with it all day, and hike with it. It has been my go-to strap for my DSLR's for the past three years and I still love it.

    Actually no.... we haven't has to end threads at 2000 for a while. We have one thread somewhere around here about the face characters that is over 6000 posts. I don't know why its giving Mike that message. I'll have to look into it a bit later and see what the problem is.

    Question, with 11 sections, is that vignetting I see along the top, or just the light conditions of the ambient? I would have thought that the more sections, the less chance for vignetting.

    The dark areas of the sky are from differences in exposure of the sky on that particular section. I tried (in vain) to correct it but could not get it even across the entire sky. If I decide to print this one, I will take the time to get it even but I already put too much time into that one.
