Black Rapid Rs-5 & Double Strap [Review]
Always during a photo shoot , i have a different feeling about the atmosphere and the place that i work. But this feeling is always interrupted by the pain in the back of my neck ,from the camera strap , or the pain in my hands from trying to hold the strap of the camera that way so i wont drop the camera and the lens. And in many cases when you need to guide the person you are photo shooting or change something in the frame ,things are getting even more difficult cause i need to leave the camera down. I don’t even have to mention how messy that is, when i need to change the lens with the straps getting confused ,where at the end i’m not sure what i’m holding in my hands and what not.
Last week after a research i had , i found the site of Black Rapid. After I saw the RS-5 and the Double Strap i asked Black rapid guys if they can send me those and finally i received them yesterday. The RS-5 replaces the traditional strap that each company provides you when you buy a camera, and the Double Strap replaces it when you use more than one lens.
The main conclusion is that as a photographer I can not ask for anything more. Honestly , beyond the good quality of the materials, and discrete looks,and good feeling, the sense of security that provides you when you use them is unique.
