A friend of mine shot a wedding with me and it was the first time i saw a HF strap in person.
Unfortunately i asked him if he made it himself since i had no clue what it was
The ends of the straps started to curl a little and to me it looked like old waist belts that were re-used for a camera strap...The belt style loop and pin made it look more so Definitely wouldn't guess that it's an actual product being sold for the money they are. Doesn't matter if it's leather or not.
Functionality aside, the strap to me was ugly, and looked cheap and home made
That's interesting. I have the black water buffalo straps and have shot 6 weddings with them. They still look as new and operate perfectly. Far better then my Black Rapid straps did. To each there own I guess.
Here's what i'm talking about.
Sorry for the bad shot, the focus was not on Lew (he's on here) he just managed to step into my shot during the garter toss, but you can clearly see what i'm talking about.
With the loop rollers and the utility hoops it just looks "cheap" to me. At that point i really don't care how comfortable or functional it might be since it looks like i riveted two old leather belts together
I personally use a Camera Slingers harness....it's far from the best, their customer service leaves much to be desired, and the price is outrageous, but that the time i got it, it was the best i can get, and looks very incognito when i wear it. It could use a connecting strap on the back to prevent cameras from swinging when leaning.
looks to me that he's wearing it upside down too? Just got the MM as a present, first impressions of it are great so far, we'll see what I think once i shoot a couple of weddings with it.
