Quick Release Dual-shoulder Camera Neck Strap – First Impression
December 26, 2011
I was about to buy my second black rapid strap when i stumble upon the Quick Release Dual-shoulder Camera Neck Strap from Rainbowimaging. It looks ok so I decided to try it out.
Seems to be made of fine materials, comparing it to my RS-1, for me the RS-1 feels more soft and comfortable to use. I guess I’ll find out when I get to use it more often. I like the design of the bracket that attaches to the camera because I can attach my QR plate with 1/4″ screw, making it tripod ready at anytime, the only down side in doing this is when shooting in portrait mode with a battery grip the bottom would be quite thick and awkward to hold. It’s nice that the two straps can be detached if I only want to use one of them.
Overall, I like the strap, it’s cheap, a decent knock off of the original, seems durable and can seem to handle heavy load. I just need to mentioned that I’m a little bit worried about the latch or connector that came with the strap, I still believe that the BlackRapid ConnectR-2
is of more superior quality, so far my Canon EOS 60D with BG-e9 Grip and 70-200mm F/4 and a flash didn’t fall when I tested it, I’m just not sure how it can handle it when I’m on the go shooting an event. I know my Black Rapid can. For now I’m using it on a lighter load like a body and a 24-70mm lens and I’ll leave the heavy duty stuff with my black rapid.
