My only experience is with RS-7 + BRAD and RS-Sport. Liked RS-Sport much better, easier to manage, less messing with those dangling BRAD straps and uber comfy due to wider shoulder pad, all day waking in the zoo with 70-200 2.8 IS II 1.4X TC attached was a breathe, I didn't even feel the weight. I guess with normal zooms they all are comfy, to really test you need to throw in something heavier.

I carry my gripped 7D and 70-200/2.8 with 580ex all the time on an op/tech utility strap-sling fitted with a Black Rapid FR3. Comfortable and secure. I do inspect it on every outing watching for wear.


be safe and well. George
7D, 5DIII, 5DII and too much to carry all at once

I agree. Have the RS-7 and RS-Sport and the sport is more comfortable but I love them both. Also service is Fantastic! Had a little problem and sent an email asking for help. They told me they consider it a warranty issue and sent me replacement in 3 days without me asking. I use arca Swiss type brackets from Kirk so I put a QRC-1 on the mount (Kirk suggested it) and that works great with it to attach it to the camera L- bracket or lens mount bracket.

Anyone use a sling strap with sling bag?

I have an older Kata torso bag, which I have worn as a sling bag. Mine is a smaller version of this.

Use it with my black rapid strap.

I've used my Black Rapid Sling Straps with my LowePro Sling 200Aw. They do work together but you need to think about the order you put them on. Same kind of issue as using the Sling with a regular backpack.

The CarrySpeed is a sleeper. I just bought the double one and I was so impressed with it a bought a single one too. For the price $28.00 and the build quality you can not go wrong. I LOVE the ability to mount the camera to a quick release plate with no extra investment. The safety system is comforting as well.

Another vote for the Luma Loop. I've carried my 1D with either the 24-105 or 7-200 F4 mounted all day. Even after hours it's still super comfortable. Much better than any other strap I've used - blows the stock Canon strap out of the water.

That video is a bit misleading. BlackRapid can do the same thing. The Carry Speed doesn't require you to remove the strap from the camera. Where as the video was showing the girl untwisting the FastenR-2. A real comparison would of putting the quick disconnect plate with BlackRapids FastenR-T1. Only thing with the BR is that you have to unclip the carabiner from the plate. At least you'll have the ability to move around where as with the Carry Speed, you have the strap on and still connected to the camera. Potential of dropping or dragging everything with you if you forgot you're tied to it.

Based on my Black Rapid Strap and set up " the video it is not misleading" .. I would have to buy the FastenR-T1 is $17.95. The FastenR-T1 is only for the Manfrotto quick release system.

I am kinda of sick of Black Rapid anyway. I had the version 1 so I had to spend $14 plus shipping for the FastenR-3. Now I would have to spend another $17.95 for the FastenR-T1..OH WAIT!!! The Black Rapid does not support my tripod mount anyway so I guess we are back to the video not being misleading at least for me ;)

so my immediate thoughts after googling the BlackRapids FastenR-T1 was to purchase it. (yes I'm an addict!) then I thought about it....now I have no problem spending money...but 17 bucks for a screw with a hook....then I thought about it some more and the names involved....RAPID. There is nothing rapid about using a tripod...so as you stated the ad is misleading. Like how long does it really take to unscrew the the thing? Then too...who wants the strap flopping around when you are using your tripod.

So I shall stay using my blackRapid and without the hook. thanks for that info iazybandit
