I probably should get a decent strap though, I'll probablly just rig my bass guitar strap to make work, its super comfortable.

I know come MotoGP time my gear gets heavy quick, carrying around a gripped t3i and 70-200 all day on the stock strap sucked during the F1 races

The stock strap makes you want to kill yourself lol. Anything is better than the stock strap! I could not imagine carrying around my 70-200 on it...I would die from the pain it would cause lol.

Agreed! After a few days out with my wifes T5i using the stock strap I ended up purchasing one of these http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003T0EYVE/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

Wife and I are MUCH happier now whenever we use our cameras (I purchased one for my 70D as soon as I knew I was getting it!)

Yeah, and no way am I paying $50 for a stupid aftermarket strap they sell at the camera stores.

that was my first time using a 70-200 ( rented ) and It wore me out quick.

the track is nearly 4 miles long and its a long walk around that place. in mostly dirt because the track is trashy as crap.

I REALLY want to get a pit pass for motoGP and one of the practice days, since thats your best bet to get up and personal with the crew and potentially meet a rider. I got a pit pass in Birmingham for AMA superbikes, and that was pretty cool.

I carry mine in a bag. Does that somehow make me a "hipster"?

I do laugh at how you both manage to not only put a label on a group of people who dress or look a certain way, but also manage to underhandedly insult them at the same time. Bravo, gents.

well in all fairness, my bag has my ipad, a game boy ( don't hate ), and stuff for work, so its with me pretty often. Since my last photoshoot my website has blown up, so i'm trying to add a bit more content to it and keep it updated often.

This is the strap I use. Works great, and it wasn't expensive. I've also used it for extended periods of time, walking around doing the tourist thing recently in the Philippines and Singapore, it was very comfortable.

you need to up your keyboard game. And that didn't take too long to get fixed.
