BlackRapid Strap
« on: February 14, 2012, 04:00:49 AM »
Have seen the Blackrapid strap at local stores. Particular one of interest for me is the RS-4.

Anyone uses it? How good is it to carry with a heavy zoom. Does the metal screw of the strap scratch the camera body?


thanks,
Rui

I have the double strap and love it. Very convenience to carry heavy lens and no fear for scratching the camera body

I have the RS-5 and love it for all the compartments it has. I  use it with my a900 and Sony 70-200 all the time.
I also carry a spare battery, extra memory cards, cable release and cell phone in. It's like having a mini bag with you all the time.
