Default Turn your Lowpro sling into a camera strap

I had been thinking about purchasing a Black rapid
camera strap for a few weeks now.
I had a flash of inspiration on waking up this morning.
with just a clip a Lowpro sling bag converts easily into a comfortable
shoulder strap.

I took it out and tested this configuration this morning really comfortable
happy with the setup.

I recommend using a carabiner that is rated to carry a load.

That said, good idea.
