From the Manufacturer

The BlackRapid Curve (RS-7) Camera Strap is a lightweight strap and is the simplest and most versatile of the BlackRapid straps.

It features attachment points so you can customize your strap with your choice of storage and other features.

It's constructed of ballistic nylon for extreme durability.

With the Curve, ergonomics are key. It's designed and shaped to fit perfectly around your shoulder.

The weight of your camera is evenly distributed for the ultimate in comfort. It's built for speed, for when timing is everything.

This R-Strap is worn diagonally across the torso from shoulder to hip, and adjusts to fit most photographers.

The length adjuster is located inconspicuously at the rear of the shoulder pad.

Included is a stainless steel FastenR which fastens to the standard 1/4"-20 tripod socket on the camera body or lens.

Once fastened the camera hangs upside down, resting securely at the photographer's hip, stomach, or at the small of the back.

The R-Strap system distributes weight sensibly, and contains dense foam padding for unparalleled comfort.

It is very well made.
George H. Seidel
It makes carrying around a camera so much more comfortable than the neck strap that comes with them.

To start, my main camera body is a Canon 7D without grip.

I was an infantryman in the Marine Corps for 8 years and as such I am used to walking around all day with all kinds of things attached to, and hanging from, my body. So it was a big surprise to me when I got into photography how incredibly awkward and uncomfortable it is to walk around with a camera! I have a D300s which usually has a 16-85 or 70-300 attached, and compared to a flak jacket, ammo pouches, canteens, a rifle, and a host of other worthless stuff should be a piece of cake to carry around. Unfortunately it's always digging into my ribs, bouncing all over the place, swinging wildly if I bend or lean over - I mean it really takes the fun out of my hobby.

The Rapid Strap is based on the one-point, assault rifle slings that I am so used to and does a pretty good job of keeping my camera out of the way until needed. The problem that I have with it is two-fold: Firstly, it's way overpriced. There really isn't much to this thing and in my opinion it shouldn't be more than 40 bucks. My next problem is that it's actually too complex. When I first started seeing one-point rifle slings about 6 or 7 years ago they looked a lot like the rapid strap, with a bunch of buckles and fasteners and different straps. As time went on though, the designs became more and more simple until finally we were left with nothing but a nylon encased loop of bungy cord that clipped to the back of the rifle. This has become the standard sling for people who know what they're doing in the military, and it would make carrying a camera even easier. I hope somebody makes it soon.

I love this strap, I was very worried at first since I'll be hooking up about $4,000 worth of gear to it at a minimum, but it holds very strong. I had this on my Canon 5d Mk II with battery grip and a 70-200mm 2.8 IS lens and it held strong...I even spun it around like the ad online shows and it still held strong. I ordered a mod that helps secure it to stay in one place better so that will be nice when I'm moving around and being more active. I also ordered a second strap and the connector that allows you to make it into a double strap, so we'll see there. I like this version but I've heard they have some with storage pockets...personally I prefer the low profile, especially when I'm at weddings and need to look classy and professional, not like batman.

BlackRapid is one of the 2 leading "Sling Strap" makers (the other being Luma Loop) and is usually attributed with more sales. After debating for months if I really needed to upgrade my strap (from the standard Canon black and red) I finally decided to take the plunge. Doing so made me realize how important of a decision it was!

To start, my main camera body is a Canon 7D without grip. I don't have a real use for a grip since most of the things I shoot are either sports (where I have fine battery life to shoot 1200-1500 shots easily on 1 charge) or events (where I have plenty of time to change to an extra battery). My main lenses are a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II and Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS. Occasionally (depending on the event) I also have a Canon 430EX II flash hooked up. Before I get on with the rest of the review let me just say that this strap had *NO* trouble holding any and all of that, but more importantly...in place.

Alright if you want to see how this thing works, I'd recommend youtube. A strap such as this one kind of needs to be seen or felt to understood completely. Basically, it's similar to a sling strap for an assault rifle or carbine. Being ex-USAF I immediately saw the usefulness in such a design: ease and speed of access. In the military, a sling is usually used to hold your weapon because it lets you bring the weapon up to operating stance in less than a second even when you least expect it. The other useful reason for such a design is that it keeps the weapon in place even when moving quickly or in different directions. This is just as important because it makes sure the weapon isn't in the way but also because it keeps the weapon safe.

In Photography, all of those things apply.

If you read my review of the BlackRapid SnapR, then you already know how much I love BlackRapid straps. BlackRapid's original R-Strap was created by a professional photographer named Ron Henry. His idea to turn a camera strap into a "sling" was ingenious. The RS-7 strap is one of seven available R-Straps from BlackRapid. The RS-7 is unique from their other single straps because it was designed as a modular system with an ergonomically curved pad. Though this review is specific to the RS-7, much of the review about the R-Strap system applies to all of their R-Straps.

PROS:
- Very well built and durable
- Clear advantage in ease of use
- Very comfortable
- MODS can be daisy-chained
- Easily adjustable

CONS:
- Bumpers can be a little tough to undo

Inevitably, the question, "why do I need to buy a strap when my camera already came with one?" will be asked. The answer is that OEM camera straps tend to be uncomfortable when worn for extended periods of time and aren't usually secured very well when worn around the neck. Have you ever tried bending down to pick something up or tried to give someone a hug with the camera around your neck? It doesn't work out that well, does it? From the perspective of a parent, having my camera around my neck makes me nervous. My toddlers require me to constantly bend down, pick them up, carry them, or run after them. Taking my camera and my kids to the park is a chore because I have to decide whether or not I want to be involved in their play (and safety) or taking their photos, but not both. The BlackRapid RS-7 changed all that.

DESIGN & BUILD
The R-Strap name is a bit of misnomer because they're actually slings. They are meant to be worn over the shoulder.
