I am really glad that I bought this product. The original strap that came with my Canon DSLR was fine, but the camera bounced around a lot and always felt obtrusive whether it was on my chest or at my side.
With the Sun-Sniper, however, the camera hangs at the rear of my hip and is most comfortable, so much so that I almost forget it is there. And when I need it, it is to hand, slides up the strap and comes to the eye instantly without snagging or bringing the strap with it. Because it is so out of the way when carried I paid the extra to buy the model with the built-in steel cable for security.
Three minor criticisms. First, the shoulder pad is bulky though comfortable. Second,in order to adjust the length of the strap you have to take it off your shoulder, unfasten a couple of velcro covers, adjust the length, then fold back the strap. I have to do this if I wear a thick jacket. But the strap certainly does not slip! And finally the price is a bit steep.
But, despite these criticisms, I would not be without the Sun-Sniper. The price was worth paying for comfort, convenience and security.

Easily fitted to the tri-pod screw thread and has been in constant use ever since. Much easier to carry the camera and use without fiddling about anymore. Excellent product

Verified Purchase
Top piece of kit - the fitting into the tripod mount on the camera won't come loose - it has a rubber friction washer that keeps your pride and joy safe - (I suppose that if your camera was wet and cold, though, and if you did 50 pirouette's while swinging it around your head it might be a problem). They also supply you with a spare washer if you wear this one out.
Comfy shoulder pad with a lot of scope for adjustment for those with arms like an orangutan.
You will have to take it off, though, if you want to mount your camera on a tripod, or buy one of the alternative fittings separately.
Made in the Fatherland, so quality is assured, but I guess you'll have to take them on their word that the strap is 'knife proof'. Or test it by walking through North London for 30 seconds.
Came quickly as well.
A genuine alternative to the Black Rapid range (which are also very good products).

Your first reaction on opening the box, and inspecting the contents will be "Have I really spent £40.00 on this?" The strap seems somehow lightweight and insubstantial (but no more than the usual straps supplied with DSLRs). However, having used mine for several weeks with both a Nikon D90 and D40 with assorted lenses, they are as robust as they need to be. It may take a couple of outings to get used to the camera sitting on your hip, but it is infinitely more comfortable than having a DSLR with tele lens banging into your sternum.
To put this in some sort of context with regard to the cost/benefit analysis, I had previously been sporting a made-up over-the-shoulder strap, with clips fastened to the D-ring of a tripod mounting plate screwed into tripod screw of the camera. All was well until the D-ring parted company with the rest of the assembly, and my D90 with kit lens went crashing to the floor. The cost to repair was over £300, and several weeks without my main camera. I vowed when I received the insurance pay-out that I would buy one of these 'proper' jobs.
The weight of the camera seems to disappear, as the weight is evenly distributed over your shoulder and chest. There is a built-in shock-absorber to even out the bumps
The fastening screw seems to be secure, and as the top of the screw mechanism freely rotates, this means that the twisting motion of the camera does not pass tension onto the screw. The only drawback I have found is that if you wear different outerwear combinations (due to weather etc), then the split shoulder strap needs adjusting or it doesn't sit as it should, on the shoulder. You are also insured for 500 US$ or 400 EUR if a thief cuts through the steel wire and steals your camera
It does work, it is comfortable, it is grossly over-priced, hence 4 stars

I have owned the Sniper Strap Steel for about a year and am very pleased with my purchase. I use it with a Pentax K5 SLR and find it to be a very comfortable way of carrying my camera around, what's more I just have to reach down and grab the camera when a shooting opportunity presents itself. Before I had the Sniper strap I mostly carried the camera in a shoulder bag as I found the neck strap to be be too uncomfortable, which often meant by the time I had sorted myself out the picture moment had gone. My initial concern before buying the strap was that the camera would get knocked about and possibly damaged, however I have found this not to be a problem at all, yes you need to be a bit sensible but honestly the camera is located just in the right place it seams. I would strongly recommend this method of carrying your camera. One word of warning is to ensure you have hold of the rubber washer that rests next to the camera when removing the strap. I didn't and lost mine. I subsequently e-mailed Sun Sniper who promptly sent me a new washer free of charge (They should probably include a spare with the strap as it is quite easy to loose it), great customer service. My only other comment is that I would find it useful if they offered a range of add on pouches for memory cards and other accessories etc.
