From the pictures, I can't figure out how to secure the strap when adjusted. Maybe they need to elaborate some more and show other cameras with the strap as well.

quicker delivery this time...my 2 new straps were in the mail today...already on the 2 rd1 bodies...love the longer length though i could see most folks not wanting their cameras hanging down around the butt.
i put the shorter (but not short) strap on the nikon d200...very nice on the heavier camera.

this could be it for me...love my kit, love my bags, love my straps...onward to photographic glory!!!

(that would be nice )

went out shooting today though my heart was not really into it...had a chance to try the 2 rd1 bodies on the longer (66 inch) lance straps. toss the retro 5 in the trunk and wore both bodies bandolero style, one on each side. i felt like a bandito of old!
it was a truly enjoyable experience i must say. the round straps just glide over each other and the length is so perfect for me. i doubt many would want to wear their camera as low as i do or manufactures would be making them longer as standard but i love them long.
2 cameras, 2 lenses and a few extra batteries in my pocket...(we're talking rd1 here) and it's fun to shoot enemcumbered on a hot sunny day.

my two lance straps on a trip to paris...


Even without exaggerating, any strap sufficient in length for Joe's use would be long enough for me to trip over. These are 36 inchers.

in today's mail i got 2 new lance straps...same 66 inch length but with the new clip ends so they can come off or be put on in seconds...and i got one in black and the other in red...tried it on the nikon d200 and now i can switch from black to red depending on my mood.
very cool...i plan on doing a review of them very soon...just want to shoot a bit with the nikon as there is a different feel to the straps with the thin clip ends...very comfortable so far!

Anybody tried this on a TLR? How does it fare compared to the traditional square profile leather strap? Thanks.

Totally in love with my 60 inch strap (non-adjust), perfect for my CLE and my D5100. Still, pretty tough to change the camera it is on. So I just purchased a 48 inch non-adjust for the CLE, the D5100 is heavier to carry so the strap I have stays on it. Seriously, best strap I've ever used sling style.

Never managed to find a strap to my liking. Just ordered a non-ajustible one (48"). Hope I will have to look no further.

Just recently got myself the 60", non-adjustable Lance camera strap, and absolutely love it. Finally able to wear the camera "bandolier" style, and can bring the camera to the eye fast and conveniently. No fuss, hassle, just nice and tidy. Tried it all day last Sunday and it was really comfortable.

Joe, would you please show us what new clip ends you are referring to. I also would like to be able to take on/off the strap easily. How secure is it?
Thanks

I ordered and received two of the adjustable straps. They are wonderful. Incredibly comfortable and easy to use/adjust.

Had them on a M7 and Mamiya 7ii during a recent trip to Japn (average temp 34C/95F) and they did fine in the heat. Will be ordering more soon.

I bought a piece of 12 strand rope for $1.50 and was planing on making my own Lance Strap. It just wouldn't work out right for me, so I just ordered from Lance. A 48" olive green one for my X-Pro1.

The A&A flat straps on my cameras do not slide well when I wear them across my chest, these look like a great idea. After splicing what seemed like miles of running rigging for my sailboat and then being drafted into service for all of our cruising friends, making a couple of these straps shouldn't be too difficult. Now to find a source for soft poly double braid in central TX!

Not a huge fan of the look of these straps, but decided to give them a try since they offer a thin string loop connector option, which I need for my X-Pro1. [BTW, if anyone was wondering if the X-Pro1 has improved upon the X100's wimpy strap lugs that wear extremely quickly w/standard metal O-ring connectors, the answer from me is a resounding no.]

I got the adjustable version & so far, so good, at least w/a lightweight body like the X-Pro1.

I use these straps with the metal O ring connectors on my Xpro1 without issue.

YM obviously V. I had noticeable wear on my X-Pro1's lugs, comparable to that on 40+ year-old Leica M & LTM bodies, after a few months of very modest use. Not good.

I ordered one of the Lance straps (one with QR string ends) as well as one of the Street Straps a few months ago. I use the Lance strap on my CL and the Street Strap on the X2.

Both work well. The Street Strap is softer and more pliable, a bit slimmer—fits the light X2 better. For bandolier style use, I'd like the Lance to be just a little longer.

Now I need to decide on what I want for the M9 and M4-2.

Do you mean the metal is wearing away
The strap I used before the lance had metal connectors as well. I will have a closer look at mine tonight.

You wouldn't happen to have a picture of yours would you?

Yes, the metal in the lugs was already noticeably worn away by the O-rings.

I don't have an X100, but have seen & read about premature wear in their lugs. Disappointing, to say the least, to find that they didn't fix this problem in the X-Pro1. My X-Pro1 isn't a shelf queen, but it's not like I've used it in rough conditions or anything.

Sorry, don't have a photo of mine. FWIW, it's mainly in 1 lug right now, but I didn't want to take a chance at exacerbating the problem (& didn't want to bother w/a bulky 1/2-case w/lugs) & wanted to see what the fuss was w/these round fabric straps the crazy kids on the RFF () keep talking about. Like I wrote, I've only seen comparable wear on my vintage cameras (nothing more modern than the early 1960s).
