Hi all,
I'm trying to decide between these two straps. I'm leaning towards the Cinch as it seems better constructed, with higher quality materials and a safer attachment system. I also appreciate the non flashy look.
However, from what I gather, the Carry Speed has the advantage when it comes to comfort & usage; the shoulder strap looks more padded but more importantly - the shoulder strap remains in place when you swing the camera into shooting position. I'm not sure how inconvenient this is with the Cinch?

Any input from users of either strap would be appreciated.
Thanks

I use a Cinch v1. The strap does move when you bring the camera up to shoot, but that is not an inconvenience since you just move it back when you put the camera down. The comfort level is great, the material is soft and stretchy, which means you don't feel any "bite" from it at all.

I haven't used the CS.

love my carryspeed, used a black rapid a while ago and found it kept slidding off my shoulder. The carryspeed doesn't budge an inch, and the neoprene pad offer's some shock absortion as well.

Not really sure why the shoulder strap remaining in place when you swing the camera into shooting position is important and/or more convenient? Also, the Cinch is plenty comfortable and easy to use... and seems to be WAY simpler in it's design (a positive IMO) vs the Carry Speed.

Because it's one less adjustment you have to worry about after taking a shot. Not a big deal but I see it as an advantage. Actually, if I remember correctly, wasn't it the main selling pitch of the original Luma loop - not having the strap drag along with your camera when you take a picture?

I just got the FS Slim and I think it is a very good sling, strap is comfy and stays in place. I like the position of the camera while it is at your side and I found that I didn't even need to tighten the strap to keep it steady.

Hmmm not sure re: the original Luma Loop, but the moving strap on the Cinch has not been a problem. Not sure about what others do, but I hardly adjust anything on my Cinch, not even between taking a shot and carrying it at my side (don't mind the length staying the same throughout the motion).

I prefer the sling straps that stay in place while bringing the camera back and forth between my eye and hip. Sling straps that slide themselves always mess up my shirt and I have to readjust between shots .

Like the BR? Doesn't the strap move on that one too? Never had a problem with the shirt issue on the Cinch, but I can see it happening depending on how people bring their camera up/down.
