Gordy's neck strap/X-Pro 1 questions
Posted 06 July 2012 - 03:58 PM
1. Neck pad or no neck pad?
2. Given the issues with lug wear, split ring or string ends?
2a. If you answered split ring, strap bumpers or not?

I use a Gordy's adjustable strap (no neck pad) and find it my best camera strap ever! I simply love the quality (and look I have to admit) of it. Mounted the rounded rings.
Note! since it is kind of squared shape it will not move around easily on your chest. I like that but some may prefer a smooth strap instead
I can only recommend it.

I would say neck pad, yes definitely. Even though the camera isn't heavy. (for a sling you're going to have a place where the ends of the loop are joined anyway). The camera is somewhat light for use with a sling and tends to bounce around a lot. I need to have a hand constantly holding it in place when walking or it will start dancing. I suppose you wouldn't have that problem with a regular strap though.
If it wasn't for the fact that I now use the Fuji grip, I would possibly have ordered a strap with one end connected to the tripod mount. This would be good as the tripod mount hole is off centered and I think the camera would hang quite nicely on its side that way.

I too am undecided whether to order the neck strap with or without the neck pad for my X-Pro? What's your opinion?
