Neckstraps for the 500D/550D

Postby gstark on Wed Dec 15, 2010 6:45 am

Hmmmm ....

The blurb says that these straps are for the 450/500/550D. I'm wondering what is special about those two bodies that means that these straps also wouldn't fit other bodies?

Oh, and then the blurb also says that the straps are also for the EF-S 18-55mmf/3.5-5.6 IS lens. (!?!?!?!?)

And the blurb also describes the straps as "highly practical and collectible".

Love Blossom anyone?

I think I'm done here. :)

but I am a 'unique individual with different viewpoint, style and taste' so I just have to have this mass produced item for my EOS err Nikon camera. Shame it won't fit. :biglaugh:

Shouldn't this be under "Humour"?

Two or three lights, any lens on a light-tight box are sufficient for the realisation of the most convincing image. Man Ray 1935.

I dont know...but the last time I checked all these cameras use a 3/8" webbing like every other SLR I know of. As for the lens? I cant find where to attach a strap to!

Patrick, this is serious stuff. :)

You know, like, ... a neckstrap for a lightweight kit lens; how could one not take that seriously?

If they were for Nikon, yes, very serious, but for Canon? Really? :biglaugh:

Now Cameron. Surely you have seen the optional neck strap adapter for the EF-S 18-55mmf/3.5-5.6 IS lens.
I believe Canon call it the EOS 550D!
