Default Camera Straps - Dual Camera

Hey guys,

I'm looking for a strap/harness to sling my cameras off when out at race meetings, since i've got 2 cams i'd like a dual camera system.

Have you got any fairly cheap recommendations (not up for spending the money for something like a Black Rapid). i've looked at the cheaper Black Quick version

Thanks

James

Black rapid is about the cheapest option. Its safe and secure. I have one that I use a lot.

x2 to that, I love that strap, and you could easily have 2 going at the same time and both your bodies will be secure.

Bought an eBay one cheap. Works great. Usually weighted down by a Nikon D7000 + grip + SB-600 flash + 80-200 2.8 and another D7000 + flash + 17-55 2.8. Can be split in two for a single shoulder strap.

Cotton Carrier. For two cameras it's the best solution.

I have one from Op/Tech that was about $30. It worked well on fire scenes and I carried two 10D's with grips, one had a 70-300 on it and the other a 28-80mm. Never had an issue with the performance of it and it was very comfortable.

Here is a link to it.

Black Rapid dual for me, love it.

Just one word of caution to those in the UK. I ordered direct from Black Rapid in the States as there weren't any resellers in the UK but I was stung for a hefty import tax bill by HMRC costing almost as much as the Black Rapid cost again.

HMRC obviously don't like us buying goods from overseas...

Just thought I'd update you quickly, I decided on a knockoff version of the blackrapid strap

Here

In all fairness it seems pretty well made and stronger than the canon straps that i have now

that looks pretty cool, the one nice thing is you can still mount your camera on a tripod when you have it on the strap. I guess I went with a black rapid because I didnt want to dangle my camera from the tri-pod mount on something I didnt totally trust not to fail. Who knows how they make a $20 dollar one.

I'm actually really impressed with it, seems a lot stronger than the original strap that comes with the camera, not really shooting with any heavy lenses or bodies at the moment but am looking at either a 70-200 f/4L or a 400 f/5.6... pretty sure it should be able to handle both of those ...
