Ya was looking at the Black Rapid stuff, but wondering if anyone has used it....maybe a single diaganol camera strap with padded neck for single camera holding.
Well, just returned from a 3 week Panama canal trip and, for me, the Black Rapid strap was a revelation. The camera dangled well out of the way, my shoulder and neck did not ache despite carrying a 5DII and lens all day, it was a doddle to bring the cameras to your eye and it even worked well with a flash attached.
Despite concerns over knocking the body against walls, it was actually safer for me than around my neck. With my old strap, I'd often find the camera dropped onto tables etc. when I leaned over.
The only negative is that it has to be removed when you want to use a tripod. So, if you need both a strap and a tripod, it might not be the best bet. But for toodling around sightseeing, I highly recommend it.
