    Oh, I really like those, wish they didn't put the company's name like that. They seriously need a logo or something smaller.

    Why not use the strap which came with the REBEL XT. I use mine and it is great.

    I use those Optech straps too. I find the Canon straps a bit stiff; the cushy, foam pad is a lot more comfortable after 8+ hours of having cameras hanging around my neck. I also like the quick releases when I'm on a tripod. Besides the big, bold, white "CANON EOS DIGITAL" logo has always annoyed me. The Optech logo is sedate in comparison.

    Another vote for the Op/tech straps. I like the fact that you can keep the strap off and connect the camera ends together and still have a short handle. I use a sharpie to black out the logo on the strap.

    I use the Optech strap as well. In fact, mine has "The Photo Forum" logo on it.

    If anyone would like to get a 'TFP' strap, they aren't currently avaliable...but rumor has it that they will be soon.
