Strongly thinking about investing in one of those black Rapid straps.

I mainly use my Clik Elite Wrist Strap. For $18 bucks its well worth it. I dont really like having my 24-70 F2.8 around my neck. I fell I hold it better in my hands when I am walking around.

Please let us know what you think about it after you've used it a few days. I am especially concerned about the plate as well. I thought they were redesigning it. Also wonder if the connection buckle gets in the way of sliding your camera up to eye level. I"m really hoping it works out fine. It's the nicest sling design I've seen.

I hate straps; I haven't been using one for about two years now, and 40k clicks later, I've still never come close to dropping anything.
My reasoning is if I'm not going to be shooting, I'm REALLY not going to be shooting, so I'm fine keeping it in a backpack or Pelican until it's time to have to shoot again.

I've pretty much gone through every strap solution possible- R-straps, Luma Cinch, Domke, Tamrac, Think Tank, Nikon AH-4 Hand strap, Gordy strap, CPS strap. None of them I could use for very long without getting frustrated with fumbling around with the strap.

When I use two cameras though, I do find that I need a strap, in which case I use the PotN Optech strap on a Blackrapid FastenR-2.

If you haven't been using a strap in two years, how could you have used the Luma Cinch as it is merely months old? :confused:

I've got one of the older straps which makes shooting portrait a pain. I see the new ones are more low profile.

I have straps on my cameras but I never really use them.

Yes i do but the strap is also known to be one of the main causes for cameras being dropped. I have had some near misses before. :)
