Shoulder Strap

The shoulder strap on my EX1 has frayed around the area where it is attached to the camera so I'm in need of a replacement.

Does anyone know of someone in the UK who stocks the genuine article or is there a suitable 3rd party strap that will do the job? I suspect most straps will do the job but as the camera is a fair bit heavier than a DSR (which most straps are made for) I wondered if anyone had any suggestions?

Thanks.

Re: Shoulder Strap

I don't know if these are available where you are but I inserted these Optech Adapt-ITS into those mounts so I can clip things on and off quickly and with one hand:

There are other approaches to pick from:

Re: Shoulder Strap

I have one of these I put on my Z5 and really like it. It's padded neoprene and comfortable around the neck. The blue area is about 2" wide. They come in various colors.

. I sewed the ends of the strap to be sure the camcorder wouldn't loosen up the strap ends.

Porta Brace also makes some heavy duty straps.

Re: Shoulder Strap

Calumet in London stock a good range of heavy duty straps, take a look at their web site.

Re: Shoulder Strap

I ended up buying a direct Sony replacement from Creative Video. On the one hand it was expensive (IIRC £35) but on the other hand at least it doesn't look out of place should I ever decide to sell my EX1.
