Black Rapid RS-7 Camera Sling

I was walking around downtown Indy on St. Patrick’s Day looking for interesting things to photograph.  I had my new setup of the Nikon D2X and a 24-85mm zoom lens.  I also had my 50mm in the pocket of my cargo shorts in case I needed an indoor lens.  After about 2 hours of walking around the added weight of the D2X was becoming quite noticeable (using the factory strap).

I remembered Roberts Camera had a location just south of the circle and decided to pop in to see if they had any replacement straps in stock.  I’ve seen a lot of reviews lately about the Black Rapid line of camera straps and decided it was time to check one out.

$60 is a lot of money to pay for a camera strap but the unique design of the RS-7 and the increased comfort make it worth every penny.  Here’s a video from Jared Polin (Fro Knows Photo) showing how the Black Rapid system works
