I Love This Strap

I don't like camera straps hanging around my neck, I could never find one that didn't make me feel like I was being hung. This strap is comfortable. It gets the weight off your neck and distributes it along your shoulder and the top of your back. The design allows you to position the camera quickly out of the way and securely if you want to walk or hike. It also works great if you have one camera on a monopod and need a second body at your hip ready to be pulled up shoot and then back to your...

The design allows you to position the camera quickly out of the way and securely if you want to walk or hike. It also works great if you have one camera on a monopod and need a second body at your hip ready to be pulled up shoot and then back to your side. There is a slide mechanism that locks your camera in position so it does not slide around when you are on the move. When you are ready to shoot, slide the lock mechanism up and you pull the camera up for the shot. There is a lot of strap to deal with when not wearing the camera.

Length adjuster slips

I love the design and materials but the construction to adjust the length of the strap isn't what you would call great...it's terrible to be honest. Whenever I have my camera attached and hanging just where I want it which is a little bit below my hip, a few seconds later, the length adjuster would slip and my camera would be hanging so low just right above my knee. This is due to the poor design of the adjuster located on the back of the shoulder pad. I was thinking to puncture a pin through...

I love the design and materials but the construction to adjust the length of the strap isn't what you would call great...it's terrible to be honest. Whenever I have my camera attached and hanging just where I want it which is a little bit below my hip, a few seconds later, the length adjuster would slip and my camera would be hanging so low just right above my knee. This is due to the poor design of the adjuster located on the back of the shoulder pad. I was thinking to puncture a pin through the parallel straps located on the back to avoid it from slipping but that would only damage the material so I never did that considering how expensive the strap is. Then what I would do is after adjusting the length of the strap, I would take the excess strap, fold it upwards, have the top fold inserted into the adjuster and the bottom fold inserted into the tail of the webbing and secure it with the keeper. This method would work but it would only secure the adjusted length for so long, I would find my camera hanging again so low just right above my knee. Since I noticed a small loop right above the R logo located on the from of the strap and never really knew what the loop was for, I figured releasing the folded access strap that was secured by the adjuster, the tail of the webbing and the keeper, release the tail of the webbing from the parallel strap and hook the tail of the webbing to the loop located on the front of the padding just above the R logo. After do this, I noticed that my camera hangs just where I want it with zero slippage and became the solution to my problem. The only thing is you cannot modify the length of the strap from this method but since I stand 5'8", the length of the strap is adjusted and fixed just where I want my camera to hang...just a little bit below my hip. So if you stand 5'8" like me or a little taller, this method will work for you or you can simply buy a different strap. Black Rapid should revise the adjuster that's located on the back of all their straps to stop it from slippage because those who stand shorter than 5'8" need the adjustment.

Good strap

By

from Illinois  -  Semi-Professional

I used this strap when I'll be carrying my camera around all day or especially with my zoom 70-200 lens. It doesn't put a lot of strain on your shoulder. But it is bulky if you take it off and hold the camera in your hand like when I go into a restaurant and didn't want to look like a dork with the strap around me. But other than that. This is a good strong strap.

Just Buy It

By

from Arlington, TN  -  Photo Enthusiast

Takes the pressure off your shoulder. Feels secure and not like it could slip off the shoulder. Looks good and when you are in shooting position the strap is out of your way. The only issue is I think the price is a little high but this is the best strap I have owned.

Best strap ever!

By

from SLC, Utah  -  Casual Photographer

I love this strap, its the first strap that i have had that allows me to comfortably carry my camera everywhere, it holds it at a safe place near my thigh and doesn't let it swing forward unless i want. The one and only flaw is that the strap attaches at the bottom of the camera, which holds the strap in a great position, but when you try to put your camera down on a table etc, the connectors jut down, probably not a big deal if you have a battery grip, cus you have two flat sides, not a big deal anyways just be careful not to scratch your furniture.

Great strap for active photographers

By

from Los Angeles  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use it when traveling for security. Very comfortable, very adjustable. Folds very compact and fits in my bag. Easy to detach from camera. I use with camdapter arca style plate and hand strap. Very durable material.

Update Adjuster slippage

By

from San Diego, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I had an issue with the strap slipping after desired adjustment resulting in my camera hanging too low. I contacted Black Rapid only to notify them and they said they were aware and had this issue fixed with revised straps then sent me a replacement. After receieving my replacement in the mail, I noticed the box is a updated compared to my first pair which I believe is the indicator in knowing which is the revised version from the one that has the slipping issue. I compared the 2 straps and noticed the adjuster (ladder lock) located on the back of strap is replaced with a new lock that won't cause the camera to slip. Now I'm satisfied with my replacement and have no slipping issues.

The cat's meow of camera straps!

By

from TampaBay  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I use it for walking on the beach. It provides a perfect thumb hook for your right thumb, and perfect length for your hand and arm to relax while walking. And your hand is already in position for a quick draw. The fit and comfort are excellent. The price is outrageous. But I love it anyway.And it is the last strap I'll ever need.

RS Sport

By

from Ft. Lauderdale, Fl  -  Photo Enthusiast

I purchased this strap anticipating carrying my Nikon D 7K while riding my bike. It works as advertised. Locking the camera in place so it stays at my side and does not bounce of the tank of my motor cycle. The locking ring inspires confidence, and the underarm strap assures it will not move. It takes the weight of the D 7K with vertical grip off my neck, so it's really very comfortable. Con: As it mounts to the base of the vertical grip, it's a little distracting when shooting vertical images. However, I can get use to that when considering how handy it is when carrying the camera/grip combination.

Extreme Sport

By

from Ft. Lauderdale, Fl  -  Photo Enthusiast

Got this to use with my D-7000 and grip. Fortunately I have two D-7000. As it screws into the tri-pod base, the BR is in the way when using the grip vertically. My bad. The strap is all you expect it to be.

Really Nice

By

from Mason, OH  -  Photo Enthusiast

I was surprised how nice the strap was when I started using it. Keeps my camera right at a great position to grab with one hand and raise it up for shooting. The shoulder pad can slid a little if you move around a lot while holding the camera up and don't have any weight that helps pull it against your shoulder. That's easy to over look since I really like how well it performs overall.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
NEAL S  For mobi It and ease of carrying a heavy camera and carrying the camera with the neck strap was painful and in the way too often.
Shopper  Joey attachment on the sports strap?
RANDY B  I’m not sure what a Joey attachment is. There is a threaded swivel attachment on the end that you can easily disconnect (similar to a D-ring but safer) from and the thread attachment that goes into the tripod mount on the bottom. I wouldn’t be without mine. Randy
Franklin S  Whats the difference from RS Sport and Curve RS-7. I'm using a Nikon D4 on a monopod with 400 and have a D3 w/80-200 lense dangling from my shoulder all the time and want the best solution for this situation. Im shooting at Football games on the field?
RAY E  Franklin, I have both, I just realy like the sports better. Check out the BlackRapid Limited Edition SPORT-CAMO Extreme Sports Strap for a little better look. They make a smaller sports model, Sport Slim but it is to thin for me. I use them with a canon T4i... I realy realy love mine.
