Great marketing plan. Give away $10 straps for worldwide advertising and make it look like a "thank you" gift. Smart.

I'd rather spend a few bucks and put my OWN name on my camera strap, if I was so inclined. At least I'd be generating business for myself instead of someone else.

Each to their own Brian. No point raining on other peoples parade though. Seems like lots of folks are happy with this freebie.

Hi Brian....I have a SM strap already and love it....I've never actually seen another one exactly like it, and I have looked. And, as far as advertising goes, My cameras have their names boldly out front.....lenses too......my car has its name front , back, and god knows where else.......and on this forum look at all the people who list in minute detail the names of all their gear. And, my friend, it really IS a decent strap....cheers....Bob

Who's raining? I'm simply calling it like I see it. If people are happy with the strap (as Bob is) and don't mind advertising someone else's services for free, I have no problems with that.

But I also don't think it's fair to allow 20 people posting "yea, a freebie!" without a dose of reality.

And Bob, the biggest difference here is product vs service. When you purchased your car, camera, whatever, you paid for it and the transaction is finished. The analogy doesn't work here. A closer analogy would be getting a free phone from your telephone carrier AND having everyone who dialed it hear "Thank you for calling a ABC telephone customer" instead of a ring.

I think everyone knows what the reality is. But it was a slight damper. Honestly, it is nice of them to offer it. But doesn't the same go for bumber stickers, shirts, hats, golf balls, ect. Isn't that how advertising works. If I sent someone from Smug Mug a shirt would they wear. Maybe, would it help me. No, because I am not nation wide. BUt in this my space day and age when I shoot models I make banners for them to post on their page and yes it has my name. When it is clicked it goes straight to my page. It's just the circle that we all share.

I take your point.....but when you walk around with the original equipment strap.....aren''t you then being an un-paid billboard for that company? Hard to see the difference really.....
