Not yet. I'm in Oz right now and wanted to get one but the Crumpler store clerks said it's only currently available through the crumpler website and that they're not sure when it's going to be in stores.
Spoke with the Philippine distributor of crumpler and he said they'll be carrying it by the end of May.
Hope this helps.
That's nice to hear.
Thanks for the heads up! I'm sure crumpler fans would get one.
digital walker and crumpler sells this for 1350
has anyone compared this to op tech? which one is better?
I was quite close to getting one last month but decided against it when I found out it didn't have a quick release system on it. Main reason I wanted to upgrade from my stock strap (aside from additional comfort) was to have QR on the strap. Other than that gripe, they're quite stylish and look very comfortable.
I just bought one last saturday, its really comfy. Considering my lens is darn heavy if you hold it for a long time. The QR is definitely an issue with it. I dont know if its practical but i have a extra strap, tamrac boomerang which has a QR and also comfy. Also not expensive as Optech.
There's always something waiting at the end of the road. If your not willing to see what it is, you probably should'nt be out there in the first place.
the strap is very nice. can distribute the load of your gear on a larger area in your neck, only downside is, it's bulky specially if you have a small bag.
I'm a happy owner of a brown Crumpler Industry Disgrace strap. It looks great, takes the weight off the cam a bit. and I've gotten a lot of compliments with it. Admittedly though, the Optech and other full neoprene straps work better in weight reduction. The Crumpler one helps too, but the full neoprene is best.
My only complaint about the crumpler strap is that the stiffer straps connecting to the D rings get in the way of the eyepiece when I take pics with the cam around my neck. I know it sounds funny but I've learned to avoid this by grabbing the stiff part before I bring the cam closer to take the shot.
To boldly go where I haven't gone before...
