Video: Why I like My BlackRapid Camera Strap

I don’t know about your camera club, but our membership skews toward, shall we say, a more mature demographic. On the one hand, I’m thrilled to have a hobby that so many people enjoy right into their late 80s and beyond. For all I know, the practice of photography is WHY these people are so vibrant in their 80s. On the other hand, if we devoted an evening to discussing neck and back pain, I suspect that every member of the club would have something to contribute.

Here’s a video that explains why I like my new BlackRapid camera strap, which takes the weight of the camera off my neck and lets me walk for hours carrying my heaviest lens ready to shoot.

    hey dean … i’m in my 60’s … won’t say exactly where in the 60’s

    sometimes my neck and back feel like they are living somewhere in the 80’s years

    thanks for this blog … do more videos!

  2. Hi Dean,

    I’ve been using the camera slinger for quite a while now and it’s made right here in Ventura.
    It’s great if your carrying more than one body.
    You can see it here:

    and there’s a video of it in action here:

    Congratulations on a great purchase, Dean!
    I’ve got one of these as well, and even though I’m rather on the young side, quite robust, and “only” lug a 24-70 f/2.8 with it, I still love it for pretty much the same reasons as you do.

    But as for the cost … with all that you say the strap enables you to do that you couldn’t do without it, and with all the problems it solves … it seems to me that $60 would still be a bargain at twice the price!
