    Sorry dude.. but $140 for a camera strap :rofl:

    That's probably the most ridiculed product in both camera stores I've work in

    it works, and its better than slinging two cameras over your shoulders at any wedding. Not to mention a lens pouch to keep my lenses in. He's probably the most efficient photog I've seen at a wedding. :dunno:

    No, but he did make a good point about shooting w/ two of the same cameras. Mainly because you'll have the same 'files' from both. might invest in another D700 or a D3 soon. :eek3:

    On a side note, I fondled his L primes quite a bit... impressive, but not enough to make me want to switch. Maybe just add them down the road to what I already have. :big grin:

    R Straps are pro. They're way overpriced but they make you look pro as fuck. I'm surprised gadget infinity isn't selling knock offs yet.

    R-Strap is siick for what it does.
    I dunno if I feel comfortable using a R-Strap with a gripped body.
    Someone says use locktite and you're good to go.

    I've seen knockoffs on eBay, the prices weren't substaintially cheaper than the actual black rapid. That said, BR is pretty open and helpful to the DIY community and even have contests for the best DIY straps.
