OP/TECH USA has a common sense approach to their products and it's obvious they have the active photographer in mind while designing their gear.
They even make the best camera straps... even if you don't need one! Sounds funny right? Although my Pro Loop Straps get plenty of work, there are a few situations during my assignments that I don't need a camera strap. Why? Because they just get in the way. While shooting NBA action I sit on the floor using several cameras. My cameras are connected with ethernet and remote trigger cables. Adding a couple of camera straps to the mix would be like having tangled Christmas lights. All would get tangled easily especially when I quickly need to change cameras.
What helps put OPTECH/USA on top of my list besides their super comfortable camera straps, is their Uni-Loop connector system. The Uni-Loops disconnect quickly to remove the strap and the X-Long version Uni-Loop connectors can be clipped together to create a small carrying handle. The actual camera strap can be removed in seconds when not needed and reconnected quickly when needed.
Being a pro photographer with over thirty five years of experience shooting everything from pro sports to nature, I highly recommend OP/TECH/USA. Besides the Uni-Loop connectors, they make other great gear. Plus they will have a comfortable strap for your style and size. You will definitely feel the difference. I should know...being 6'9” they make the only strap that fits me and my demands. OP/TECH gear are proudly made in the USA.
