If you have been following me on Facebook, you could know that I lately bought a new camera. I purchased the Sony R10 iv–an all-in-a single compact camera that is super simple to travel with.
I had quite a few great possibilities to test it out and actually find out how to use it through my current trip to Peru, the Galapagos and the Amazon rainforest.
Mainly because I knew I’d be hauling the camera about most days for the previous month, I wanted an simple-ish way to carry it and a way that I knew would be secure in large cities (exactly where theft concerned me) and on a boat (exactly where my slippery hands concerned me!).
I was delighted to have been contacted by Seattle-primarily based business Black Fast to test out a single of their camera straps. The timing was best so I took them up on their present!
I was interested in their Curve Breathe Crossbody camera strap since it is an more than the shoulder strap that I knew would make the camera secure in my hands beneath various situations.
The strap conveniently but securely screws into the bottom of the camera working with the camera’s tripod mount. As far as really wearing the camera strap, I will admit that it took me at least a half dozen occasions of placing the strap on just before I could do it with out considering as well substantially about it, but when I got it down, it was simple peasy. It is worth noting that there’s a video on the solution web page that shows precisely how this performs.
In quick, the strap goes more than your head and your arm goes via a smaller sized section of the strap. Your camera then hangs down at waste-level (or at what ever level is comfy for you).
It is conveniently adjustable for use by any physique size and height. I identified it was finest to carry the camera a small greater (just above my waist) when I was trekking so it wouldn’t bounce about when I walked but that I could reduce it down a bit on non-trekking days.
The way the strap is configured (see photo above), you will notice that it requires the weight off of your neck, as opposed to a standard strap that basically hangs straight down. For me, this was a single of the greatest advantages–to not have the strap and camera just hang down my front.
The only downside to the Black Fast Curve Breathe Crossbody strap is that it can be a bit bulky/cumbersome when you are not working with it. In other words, it does not pack down compact like a standard strap. When it is nevertheless attached to the camera, it requires up a fair bit of space in a compact camera bag and when it is not attached, it is also a bit bulky. This is NOT a show stopper for me. The pros of this strap far outnumber this minor inconvenience.
