Customer Reviews

This sling strap for my dslr makes my neck feel much better at the end of the day.
Drew Colvin
Where I find this a problem is if I lock it in place at my side or back it will often swing forward if I bend down or move around too much.
Chris McLain
The strap made it easy for me to carry the camera out of the way but take a quick picture when needed.
G. Horne

If you have a contemporary DSLR with a lens mounted on it, and hanging around your neck with a standard strap, you can start a day of picture-taking with wonderful intentions. But after a few hours of walking around this way, that 1½ pound camera begins to feel like you're carrying a concrete block, or perhaps two of them. I was skeptical at first as to whether a sling strap of any kind would be worthwhile, but I had a few things to learn.

For me, this Joby UltraFit Sling Strap for Men for DSLRs or CSCs proved to be a solution to the issue described above, and it's one shared by many of us who carry DSLR cameras. I had already tried a few slings straps from various manufacturers; some were excellent, some were cumbersome hassles, and a few were a farce. Easiest way to describe the array of them would be to recall the title of Sergio Leone's 1966 Italian epic Spaghetti western film, "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly."

It doesn't take much to do the do the math here: my Nikon D5000 weighs about 20 ounces with the battery, some of my lenses come in at about 12 ounces, and my DSLR Battery Grip with the pair of batteries in its base are around 12 ounces. That makes a total of 44 ounces, or 2¾ pounds. As a result, I've gone through a few camera straps with each one getting wider while trying to find the best solution. As a result, there have been times that I've carried fewer lenses, or left the battery grip behind, only to regret it later.

I've been using a BlackRapid sport strap for a few years now and needed a strap for my second camera, so I decided to give this a try.

First up, it's a different approach to a shoulder strap than the BlackRapid. It's pretty clear if you watch the videos: the Joby is designed to make the tightening and loosing part of using the strap super easy, while the BlackRapid is designed to make pulling up and setting down the camera from its resting position super easy.

To me, they each excel for certain purposes: The Joby is best if you're going to be moving around a lot and infrequently bringing the camera up to shoot, or when you do bring the camera up you're not letting it rest much till you tighten the strap back down and start walking. So it'd be good if you were out on a walk, hike, whatever and want a camera ready but out of the way. The BlackRapid is much better if you're frequently putting the camera down and bringing it up again. Bringing up and putting down the camera is far more comfortable thanks to the sliding carabiner. There's nothing to think about and it's extremely comfortable. The Joby tends to rub on my neck a bit and feels a little awkward in comparison. But it's a pain to tighten the blackrapid strap if you're going to be moving a lot. You almost need to take it off.

Joby's construction and material are nicer than Blackrapid's. BlackRapid uses standard nylon webbing and pads that look and feel cheap, with cheesy chromed out metal hardware. Joby's webbing feels more like seatbelt material--it's much nicer overall.

As nice as the Joby is, I prefer BlackRapid's system. It just fits my needs better. That said, either is a massive improvement over traditional neck straps. If you've never tried either system you owe it to yourself to give at least one of them a shot.

I purchased a Joby sling in August ahead of photographing a wedding. It functioned well for the duration of the day, but last night when I relied on it for an outdoor event, the strap failed miserably. The resulting failure sent my Canon 7D and lens falling about 3 feet onto a concrete sidewalk, breaking the lens hood and filter and seriously dinging the body of my camera and lens. This happened not even 30 steps from exiting my car and after I had checked the screw at home to ensure it was still tightly attached. It worked loose very, very fast.

I'll be taking it to a local camera shop to have it examined and determine if there is any internal damage to the body or lens. I've had the body since 2010 and the camera was babied, cleaned and handled with the utmost care, so this is unbelievably upsetting. Prior to this sling, I avoided straps and slings primarily because I did not want to trust $3,000 worth of photography equipment to a cheap piece of nylon.

I had read good things about the Joby sling prior to my purchase but now I simply cannot recommend it to others.

NOTES:
-I've been photographing at a semi-professional level for 8 years.
-Prior to my mishap yesterday, I cleaned my lens and re-tightened the strap. It came loose and detached within not even 30 steps of leaving my car.
-The strap was attached to the 7D directly, not a battery grip or anything else.

There aren't many reviews on the strap yet, so I thought I post my view.
I didn't actually purchase it on Amazon because once I set my mind on getting it I was too impatient and wanted to have it immediately :), yet Amazon constantly run out of stack, so I just went to B&H and grabbed one there. I've only had the Joby Strap for a little less than a week so I did not get a chance to use it extensively yet but was very pleased with it when I did use it.
The below is really just first impression and a comparison to other straps I used or considered.

I used couple shoulder straps before - an inexpensive Black Rapid clone, and the OP/TECH Sling strap. The black rapid clone worked ok - it was pretty much a nylon strap with a cushion on the shoulder that also had a small packet for memory cards. It was fairly comfortable although sometimes the cushion would move off of the shoulder as the camera was moved. I never used an actual black rapid only looked at one at the store very quickly, so I'm not really qualified to comment on it, and I know a lot of people swear by them but personally I didn't see anything in it that would justify me spending several times more money for it then I spent on the cheaper imitation. I suppose the material is probably better quality and I actually used the black rapid fastener screw and connector hook as I trusted this part a little more, but the strap itself was too similar for me.

The op/tech I liked better because for one it is pretty comfortable, strap has a wide contoured neoprene cushion, it stays on the shoulder better (although still moves) has lot of customization, and can be changed very quickly.
