Our review of the UPstrap camera strap...



If you are looking for a camera strap that is comfortable when it's hung around your neck, that if you hang it on your shoulder it won't let your camera slide off, and will hold your camera securely even if it's the size of a small Volkswagen... then look no further.

The camera strap you are looking for (and we found) is the UPstrap.

As soon as I received my UPstrap (and before putting it on my camera) it was inspected quite closely and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the construction (in both materials and technique).

I have been using the UPstrap exclusively now for my last three weddings (and will for the last two) and I really like how comfortable and securely it holds my Nikon D3. Normally I would never wear my camera draped over my shoulder, that is until I started using the UPstrap, my camera stays securely on my shoulder without budging an inch.

Unlike most other straps, the UPstrap is not a "one size fits all" strap. The first choice is camera manufacturer, because Nikon and Canon have different mounting points, the UPstrap is designed to match those mounting points.


Your next choice is camera size, or you can choose between neck strap or a wrist strap. Don't want either of those, you can go with a bandelier style strap because that's an option too.

Not sure what you want/need, they will walk you through making the right choice for you and your camera (just follow this link).

But wait, there's more, if you would like a more comfortable strap on your camera bag UPstrap has bag straps too.

I am extremely happy with my UPstrap, I think the only thing that would be more comfortable would be if someone carried my camera for me.

my wife bought me an UPstrap for Christmas last year and I absolutely love it! It sits comfortably on my shoulder without sliding off and it's long enough to wear the strap on one shoulder and have my camera sit on the opposite hip.

I've had several straps and although this one seems comfy and cool, I always resort back to my Black Rapid Strap.

I do dig the HD loop, however. Nice addition to it.

Highly recommendable camera strap for those people who are just new in photography art.

I'm searching for a new strap and am trying to decide between this one and the ThinkTank so what better way than to possibly get it for free :o)

Thanks for both reviews, Scott. This looks like a really great strap-one that doesn't have to go around my neck but can rest on my shoulder without slipping off. I can't wait to try one and see for myself.

Never would have thought about the addition of the 'grip' to keep it from slipping, but a great idea. Thanks for the review!

Your photos of the UPstrap straps for Canon and Nikon are half-fast labeled. Backwards.

Why Is Unstrap's website so lame? The Pics are horrible. I researched YouTube and Googled them and could not find any descent image that was worth the term "Marketing" I specifically wanted to see a close up of the large strap for up to 12 lbs. I have had 2 neck surgeries and am looking for comfort plus. Wonder what their sales would look like if folks could see what they were spending that kind of money on? By the way, I have owned an Unstrap and can attest to the quality. I just want to see what I am buying. Way too much "trust me" going on lately.
