Summary: People giving this a 1 star for slipping, DOES NOT KNOW how to properly put it on. There is a way to put this strap on, and when is not done properly, the strap seems to slip off. I have had mine on for 4 years, and it hasn't moved a cm. People, learn how to put the strap on properly before claiming that it is not good. Just because you crash your car, it does not mean its the cars fault, its usually the driver.
Summary: I ordered this strap at the same time I ordered my new Nikon D40 kit that includes a telephoto lens. I did not know the camera came with a strap as the specs did not indicate that. This is a nice wide sturdy strap, but I do not need it as it is just like the one that came with my camera. In addition to that Santa is bringing me a harness device called the Cotton Carrier for me to carry my camera around in when I am out and about taking photos.
Summary: I got the D90 and installed the strap using my own logic. It seemed okay but then I saw it begin to slip and was horrified that such an expensive product had such an insecure strap. THEN I read the instructions and followed the Diagram (pg.17 in D-90 User Manual). They were simple--about 3 minutes per side. Now you couldn't make the strap slip without breaking off the camera mounts!! Pays to follow the instructions. Very Safe now.
Summary: I bought a used Nikon D70s and bought this to replace the well-used strap that came with the camera. It's one of the small accessories that can help refresh an old camera and make it feel newer. I am sure there are better, more comfortable straps out there, but it does what it's supposed to do, so I can't complain. It isn't very well padded, but I usually carry this body on my shoulder and I usually only notice padding when carrying around my neck.
Summary: After installing this strap as stated in the D80 user manual there is not possible for the camera to fall off the straps (unless you cut it or undo it). It is easy to install improperly. Make sure to follow the directions exactly.
Summary: The first time I used my new D40 with this strap the camera almost went tumbling onto the concrete, and I had only been walking for about 5 minutes. Luckily I caught the strap right before the camera hit the ground. It has flexible plastic 'clips' that easily slide causing the strap to come loose. Once again, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, do not use this strap!

Summary: This strap came with my Nikon D80 and I dutifully installed it. The first weekend I was using the camera, I went to grab the camera by the strap and was horrified to learn that the strap came loose and see my brand new 1000.00 camera crash to the ground from a height of about 4 feet. Fortunately, Nikon makes better cameras than they do straps because the camera was undamaged (though scratched up a bit).
