I am generally ashamed of myself for presenting pack shots on this blog instead of the goods out in the open. But when I see that the pack is sealed and the goods inside are big and floppy and troublesome to photograph...I conquer my shame.
Today there are three newish thingish things from Black Rapid - the leaders in camera slinging technology. Those who are inclined to dispute that claim are invited to come down here with a Nikon D4s and a 200-400 Nikkor lens. They can attach said optical artillery to a neck strap and then to a Black Rapid rig and see which feels good. We have the chiropractor on speed-dial when they find out...
The new slings are:
Kick: A wide shoulder pad and a canted dodge-the-bumps configuration allow female photographers who are toting heavy gear to do it in clavicular and thoracic comfort. Stylish, too.
Yeti: You can sling two big cameras off this one but it does so off a very wide left-shoullder pad. A working sling rig for the heavy duties.
Tether: Two anodised carabiner clips, two camera-ready short straps, and a useful accessory bag help the Black Rapid user secure their camera to straps they already own but also allow other people who use mirror-less systems to cobble up a very lightweight travelling rig. Ask us how. We don't know yet, but that should not stop us...
All the big Black Rapid straps will support 25 Kg at the working end. If your camera weighs more than that we salute you.
