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

Hereexternal link

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

I have recently started using the Cotton Carrier and like it also.

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 ...

black rapid is fine but carryspeed allows you to use a tripod plate etc under the cam
which black rapid does not allow
