To be honest, I had immense reservations when it came to any strap from Black Rapid. The way their strap connects, with their ConnectR-2 (CR-2), to a camera was daunting. The camera hanging upside down at my hip made me nervous. I first tested a Black Rapid strap with a friend’s camera. However, I was not completely convinced. When I found out it existed, I contacted Black Rapid via their twitter account (@BlackRapid) and I challenged their representative to persuade me into getting the strap while at Photo plus Expo 2010. You know what? I was won over.
