| p.1 #5 · Carry Speed Camera Strap Review/Feedback |
I'm glad there are other users with good reviews.
All those bad reviews have to be from previous versions, because the new one really is great!
I got to take it out and use it for a good while. It was comfortable throughout the whole day. It works a lot better with longer lenses, since the mount is offset to the side. I found using a 50mm f/1.4 it tended to jumble around a lot, but i think ANY strap is going to do that.
I also noticed that i can only use one tripod mount hole with my particular quick release plate. The switch on the tripod hits the ball head so the plate can't lock into place using any forward holes. I can only use the back most mounting hole.
Another interesting note. The threads on the ball head aren't exactly the right size. When threading into the camera hole it remains very loose until it's tightened down. IE, if it's halfway threaded in the hole it can jiggle around freely. I see this as a potentially stripping out if tightened too much. Only time will tell on this one.
The ball head mount reall is nice. It's sturdy and i don't see it failing any time. Like others have said, it can't swing and hit the camera body. The motion of bringing the camera up from it's holstered position is very smooth, BUT i've found that i have to wear the strap farther back. If i bring the camera up with the strap even (in the middle on my shoulder) it will hit the clip and push/rotate the strap back.
Overall. This strap is great for the price and i definitely recommend it!
