super comfortable and much better way to carry my camera
on 23 February 2017
wow. This strap works really well. I have used this strap now for a few weeks and am totally converted to this style of camera carry. Carrying the camera across the shoulder and having it hanging to one side is so much more natural than having it dangling around your neck. I do a lot of wildlife photography and can happily carry my heavy 400mm lense for a few miles using this strap ( plus my backpack) and when the moment to capture something comes it literally takes a second tp grab the camera and shoot ( its kind of same movement as if you were drawing a gun cowboy style!)
You can adjust the length of the strap easily by doing a kind of pulling movement as you lift the camera up ( bestsellers to watch a yt vid on it).
NB I didnt realise that when it arrives the strap is 'locked' in place by a small plastic catch near the tripod fixing. You have to undo with a finger pull action the plastic lock to enable the strap to be adjustable. This lock is useful as when you have heavy lense on the lock stops the strap lengthening on its own when you are walking.
I know other people have worried about the screw coming undone from the tripod fixture but I can't see that happening myself. Having said that I have bought the tether too as its not worth risking even if the chances of the strap coming undone is very remote. I also have attached the joby plate which means I can attach the camera to the tripod and not have to take the strap off. This works just fine and means I have a very good carry set up.
