Pardon me for the lateness of today’s post, but I was out and about doing some photographing today. I happened to purchase a BlackRapid R-strap today, and boy is that thing cool. The idea behind the R-strap is that you can quickly have access to long lenses without straining yourself. The strap also acts as a counterbalance to said long lenses when you have it up against your body. It’s really quite slick. I’m going to do a full review soon, but suffice to say that you definitely get what you pay for when you buy this thing. It’s a quality piece of kit with several very cool features. So far, after initial testing, I’m very pleased with it. Full writeup coming soon!
