Hey gang! back in town from a whirlwind “fall foliage” WV tour!
I promised I’d tell you my thoughts on the new R Strap– well here it is:
WOW! I never thought I’d get excited about a strap ( not THAT kinda strap anyway…) but it really does make a difference in how you use your camera.
1) the weight load is better on your neck- My camera is close to 10 pounds with extra batt grip, and heavy lenses. No neck strain!
2) Keeps the camera from swinging around so much when you move around. Very well balanced, so the camera stays next to your hip.
3)The ease of bringing the camera up to my eye. Even while I wore the strap under my jacket. Just a quick motion and BOOM! Ready to take a shot.
Overall, it felt very comfortable and natural. not something I can always say about lugging a camera around with me- If you carry a camera, this is the strap to carry it with.
