    Great product, steep price but worth it!

    If you're like me, the investments on a DSLR and lenses are made with the best of intentions and the last thing you'd want is your expensive and sensitive equipment to fall, and be damaged. Although the price is fairly steep, this product is great for many reasons. Aside from securing the DSLR body with a screw connection, the comfortable and adjustable over-the-shoulder padded holster is worth the investment...especially after a long day of site-seeing and photographing. The under-the-arm adjustable strap adds an extra level of support for the DSLR and comes in handy when looking to stabilize the camera (when shooting without a tripod). I would recommend the product and just remind you that for a percentage of the larger investment made on the DSLR and lenses, your camera will be safe and you will be comfortable as you go about documenting everything you find interesting through your view-finder.

    I purchased this strap to use with my Canon 80D and 100-400 lens. The lens makes my camera extremely heavy but this strap makes it effortless to carry the camera for long periods of time. It is also important to note that I am a female and the way the strap lays across my chest is perfect. It's hard to find a comfortable strap but my Black Rapid has become necessary to me when I am traveling with my camera. It made my 2 week trip through Alaska much easier as my camera was ALWAYS within my reach!

    I think this strap feels great on perfect for days where you’re shooting all day. Very useful if you’re shooting weddings or even out on a hike. The only downside to this is the time it takes to remove your camera and adjusting the straps itself. It can take a long time. I know they did upgrade the lock to avoid any mishaps, which I appreciate. Overall can you do without this strap, yes. It’s not a necessity, I’m not in love with it because I feel like a regular strap could do the same thing. Not too impressed, just an ok 3 star rating from me.

    The Black Rapid Curve Camera Strap solves numerous problems that neck straps incur. This strap keeps your camera safe and ready to use at a moments notice and relieves the pressure on the back of your neck. The ingenious locking slides keeps your camera exactly where you want it and at the ready. I NEVER leave home with out it! A must item for all serious photographers(and anyone else for that matter).

    This strap is so much more comfortable to use than the strap that comes with the camera. I'm so glad that one of the associates was wearing one!! I have problems with my neck and shoulders and using the strap that comes with the camera just makes my neck / shoulders hurt more. This strap is padded on the shoulder and the weight is more to the outside of the shoulder. This is one of the best purchases I made

    A salesperson was wearing one of these straps and recommend it or I wouldn't have known about this product. Works very well for carrying a camera and lens like a 100-400mm by the tripod foot. And you can grab it at a moment's notice. Wish I had bought this sooner.

    I have heavy camera and a heavy lens, once I started using the blackrapid, carrying my camera became so easy. I used to struggle with carrying my camera and used to not take it everywhere. Now, it's no problem.

    Neck straps annoy me, camera cases are bulky, but this Black Rapid camera strap is so comfortable to wear and convenient for quickly grabbing a shot without fumbling.

    It took me a while to figure out how to use this but once I got the hang of it, it was easy. Highly recommend for hands-free camera carrying.

    This strap made carrying the camera around Iceland a breeze. It felt like the camera wasn't event there and I loved that if my hands slipped the strap would catch the camera.

    I purchased this shoulder strap after reading multiple reviews about BlackRapid. It does a fine job but it doesn't always stay put (I need to reposition the shoulder pad often).

    great strap and it does not get in the way of any of my photos like the normal staps do. I just wish I could put it on my right shoulder.

    Love this strap! I love that you can lock it in place so it doesn't swing all over the place when bending over :)
