I would like to determine which style of buckle that most users prefer.

If I every use one it's the metal buckle type but I very seldom use straps anymore... I use either security boxes or cheap bungee cords.

I haven't used a strap since I got my first camera many years ago, they're just too darn visible from any direction. I always use camo parachute cord, as thin as I can get. All my cameras but one are in steel boxes, most made from electrical boxes, that have 3D camo. They are all also locked with Python locks -- which are also too darn visible but not as noticeable as the straps that come with cameras.

I stopped using straps a few years back. I've made up this setup. It has 2 nylon bushings, 3/8 bolt with a nyloc nut to hold the tension setting. Very fortunate I cam in an area where no one bothers my cams.

I made some of these also. But I find they are rather hard to get the screw started into the tree, maybe because I have mainly hardwood (oak) trees here. I wish I could find tapered screws like a tree peg to use because they are easier to get started. With that said, I have no issues with straps other than some trees are just bent in the wrong direction.

Whatever type you can pull on once camera is on the tree and it stays tight. One of my complaints of the ridgetec cameras is the strap they come with. I swapped my old bushnell strap over on one of them even due to how quick you can tighten up the strap.
