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.
Now for the complaints. It tends to ride up and cut into my neck when not wearing shirts with collars. The tripod mount is secure (use a tether) and the almost perfect out of the way place to attach the strap, however, it prevents opening the battery and flash memory compartment on our Canon SX50. This is not an issue for our Pentax K-50.
This is our second Joby strap. The other is the pro model. I really don't see much difference and may even prefer the regular vs the pro model.
Bottom line, love the Joby straps.
I recently saw a lady skiing with a camera bearing a huge telephoto lens hanging down by her side. I can only guess that she had the exact same Joby strap. (It looked like the same one to me, anyway.) I should have asked. UPDATE: I have skied with my camera hanging from this strap. Didn't really get in my way.
I have read the one and two star reviews from the true pros, who use cameras even more expensive than mine, and who do photo shoots more frequently than I. I respect their experienced perspective on this product, but I love this Joby camera strap for my level of photography.
So it arrives and I take it out of the box. It was super-simple to attach the strap to the camera. It took me a little while to take the plunge and crank on the tab that allows the strap to adjust. I am always afraid of breaking something made of plastic by not understanding how it should move. After that moment of truth, I was able to adjust the camera strap to fit my rib cage. The camera feels very secure hanging from the strap.
The instructions in the box didn't help much. It was helpful to flip over to YouTube and watch a couple of videos of the strap in action. When you raise the camera, you need to move the strap at the same time, pushing the extra over your shoulder. One person said this would be too much friction over the course of the day. Time will tell. I can feel a little friction on the side of my neck. If it really bothers me, I might cover the shoulder strap with microfleece. I'm good at sewing.
Overall, a very nice experience right out of the box. I'm sure I'll have my camera at the ready more often because of this strap.
