Strap recommendations
« on: April 22, 2015, 08:52:26 PM »
Was almost ordering an EF 100 2.8 IS Macro lens. Suddenly found a totally new 50-150 2.8 OS HSM Sigma and ordered that.  :P
Any strap recommendations?

Nice find @nikfreak -- here's a strap that I own and works well...

I've a blackrapid since long time ago

RS7 is the best that I had. I'm thinking for the sport version with the Brad to lock it in the arm.

I also own that as well but didn't like how it kept slipping out from the side (it seems to be a design flaw to not include an under-arm belt to hold it on) otherwise they both work well for the most part.

I prefer the sporty blackrapid for run and gun type of shooting. The Joby seems to be better suited for long walks, tours, etc...

Thanks for noting this one out in particular regarding Blackrapid @kichetof since I couldn't remember what the name was on top of my head -- its been a long time since I've bought it in 2008 (yes they are sturdy and well made).

Greetings, technically not a strap, but I love my SpiderPro!
http://spiderholster.com/spider-pro
I wear it on my ThinkTank speed belt and have no problems whatsoever with camera support.

It is very sturdy, camera is available when I need it, and out of the way when I don't.
I have a BlackRapid, but I also do not like the way it slides around.
Basically camera support is all about what you feel comfortable with. I will add that when the Spider Pro holster is available,
I will probably add that to the mix.
Cheers

Thanx for the replies. I just found out a german guy has done a strap the people seem to like. Take a look at the strap at 03:40. Price is about 40€. What you think about it:

Looks pretty decent especially for nearly $40 less than the Blackrapid Sport version which is basically the same design as this one...

Great find @nikfreak and as always I fascinate with german's creativity!
