Luma Loop vs. Black Rapid
Jun 26, 2011

Has anyone compared these two straps? A buddy of mine in the same photo club that I'm in hosted a pool party yesterday and showed off his new Luma Loop strap. It's basically the exact same concept as the Black Rapid strap only the Luma Loop attaches to any mount point on the camera instead of just the tri/mono pod socket. I tried out the Luma on my 7D with 24-70 f/2.8 and it honestly felt weightless. I haven't had the chance to use a Black Rapid to compare though. The only thing that I didn't like about the Luma was the lanyard part that connects to the mount points. It does offer a pod mount like the Black Rapid, but I still wasn't a fan of the fabric lanyard compared to the ConnectR-2 offered by Black Rapid. Does anyone have any experience with both of these straps for a better comparison? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
