Every Day Carry – P-7 Suspension Clip


The P-7 Suspension Clip by TEC Accessories is one of those EDC accessories that makes a lot of sense once you see how well it works.  I try to keep a small key chain but even what I carry can be a little bulky in some situations.  The P-7 helps keep your keys and accessories from bunching up in the bottom of your pants pocket.


By clipping the P-7 to the edge of your pocket the keys can hang vertically and all but disappear.  It also keeps your keys from falling out of your pocket accidentally.


When I received the P-7 in the mail it was even smaller than I expected and adds very little bulk to your key chain once installed.  The clip is very sturdy and all but impossible to bend during normal use.

If you have more items on your key chain than you want, and hate the way it gathers at the bottom of your pocket, give the P-7 a try!




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
