Re: Black Rapid users - is it stable?

If all you are holding is one camera, I'm sure you wouldn't have a problem. Try carrying two D700 with grips, one with 70-200/2.8 VR, the other with 24-70/2.8 with SB900 for eight hours and see how you do.

I'm amazed that anyone could find the 70-200afs particularly heavy to hold, perhaps I am being naive but I regularly hold it for eight hours and find it well balanced on a d3.

I also regularly do equestrian events for a whole day with my 200-400afs.vr that's a bit more effort but not impossible.

Perhaps some of you guys need to get some exercise, that's not meant to sound flippant or disrespectful.
