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.
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.Read more ›
UPDATE 6-9-2013: So I've had the Black Rapid RS-7 now for about a month. Yesterday, while I was taking a break from shooting a wedding, one of the videographers approached me about the Black Rapid strap. He told me that he had the same exact setup and proceeded to show me his RS-7. He advised that there have been complaints regarding the carabiner falling off the oval metal ring that houses it and showed me how he modified his in order to prevent a catastrophic drop with his equipment. Basically what he did was take two 4 in cable ties and secured the carabiner on each side. Then he took an 8 inch cable tie and created a loop in the oval ring, from there he attached an S clip from the cable tie to the Black Rapid carabiner. He also attached to 8 inch cable ties to the clip lock that holds the Black Rapid Strap together preventing that from accidentally unhinging. Like myself, he also had several thousand dollars worth of gear normally hanging from the Black Rapid so he wanted the added security. Well as soon as I got home last night, I pretty much mimicked his setup. Took cable ties and secured the plastic clip that closes and opens the RS-7, then took two cable ties and secured the carabiner to the oval ring.Read more ›
