The carabiner type connector that is between the metal connector that screws into the bottom of the camera and the strap is made out of metal. If you sit down with your camera in your lap the caribiner type connector will scratch your camera. I went on a two week vacation during which time I carried my camera around with me all day using the Black Rapid Strap. We would walk around for a while and then drive to the next location. By the time I got back home there was a deep scratch about 1 1/8 long and 1/8 inch wide on the bottom back right side of the camera. When I checked for potential contact between the metal connector and the camera the scracth matched up perfectly where the location the metal connector contacts the camera when seated. The scratch took the paint off of the camera body exposing the raw metal of the camera.
I contacted the store I purchased the product from and they are supposed to contact the makers of the Black Rapid Strap. Of course I have not heard anything back and what are they going to do, replace my camera body? Unlikely...
1. Super comfortable
2. Peforms as advertised
3. Ergonomically great
1. It will scratch your camera body and ruin it.
Given the price of a good DSLR camera body it is not worth it until the company realses a non-metal connector or a rubber coated connector....
UPDATE: They emailed me saying they would look into my case and see what they can do and I was so excited to resolve this issue and they emailed met twice assuring its being looked at.
a few weeks go by and nothing. SO I email and nothing. I email again and nothing. They are a scam!!! DO NOT BUY. MY camera is now having issues internally and im looking at $7500 in broken equipment. WORST COMPANY EVER. Blasting this to my 200k followers to report this company. so ridiculous they would email me to tell me they are going to help and nothing."
However, if you carry a heavy camera for hours at a time engaging in a variety of activities, this is the only way to go.
In fact, when the word gets out about these sling-type straps, I would suspect that all others will become obsolete.
At this time, they are a little pricey, but as they catch on, I expect the prices will drop.
As it is, they are still worth every penny and more.
The Black Rapid is an excellent iteration of this simple, but ingenious design, that seems to have been born on the battlefield and styled after the new generation of rifle slings.
I am going to have faith the ConnectR-2 hardware is up to snuff (based mostly on user reviews), since I have had luggage straps of the same design fail before due to wear at the swivel joint.
The main thing to note, current versions of the RS-series straps come with the Black Rapid FastenR-3 Third Generation for R-Strap now -- at least my RS-4 shipped with a FastenR-3.
Camera is quick at hand and readily slides up the strap easily to shooting position. When off your shoulder the strap hangs below the camera and does not interfere with controls or sensors. The small pouch on the RS4's strap will fit a spare battery pack which is a total bonus. Unlike the curved RS7, the straight RS4 is ambidextrous and can be used on either shoulder. This is a requirement when on a single track of a sheer cliff face and want the camera on the outside of my body so it's not bouncing off the rocks as I climb. If you want a great strap for a DSLR this is the strap for you.
