Re: Joby UltraFit Sling Strap - impressions

I just bought the Joby Sling Strap for men. Although I like it a lot for the quick adjustment feature I have 2 minor beefs with it. Just for reference I use the sling on my 5D2 with a 70-200 f2.8 IS and a battery grip, so it's bulky and heavy

1. The tripod connector is too bulky that when I have my camera in portrait position, the tripod mount is hitting my palm, making it difficult for me to control some button settings from the battery grip. A lower profile connector or strap clip attachment would be better. Not an issue without the grip.

2. Because the camera and lens is heavy, the sling shoulder pad seem to slide up to my neck because of the weight. an underarm connector or a "U" shaped shoulder pad would probably be helpful here

Other than that I love it!
