Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend!
Mine was quite calm and relaxed. Yesterday I went for a little walk by the stream nearby to take some pictures of the snow and for the first time I used the Black Rapid camera strap that my boyfriend ordered for him (us ) sometime ago.
The one we got is the RS-Sport, however there are a few different models depending on your preferences.
Here are the reasons why I prefer this strap to the one that came along with the camera:
- It is worn diagonally across the torso from shoulder to hip, so the weight of the camera is not on your neck;
- It has a pad for more comfort;
- It may seem unsafe, but actually the lock is really strong so the camera rests at your side with the lens pointing away from harm;
- As they say you just have to “Grab, Glide and Click”, it’s very easy to use!
You can go to the site for more information and here’s a video so you can get an idea of the freedom of movement this strap gives to the photographer:
PS: I will post some of the shots I got later this week =)
