The Everyday Sling might just be the perfect pack for not carrying too much gear, combining comfort with Peak Design's signature modern style.
I've owned the BR RS-Sport strap for nearly a year now and thought I'd share my thoughts on it along with a few questions for fellow users.
*Easy storage & portability: this strap folds up nicely and is easy to store & transport in my camera bag.
*Nice bumper system that locks the camera into place when you need it to stay in one place
*Easy to combine with Manfrotto RC2 plates for quick change from strap to tripod mounting
*Strap slides very little (mostly none-at-all) when you bring the camera up and down.
*Relatively comfortable to wear without fear of dropping your gear (caveat in cons below)
*When you pull the camera up to shoot vertically, especially if you have a grip installed, you'll notice that it's just a little bit tight and doesn't quite give you enough room to pull the camera right up to your face or if you're shooting upward. Not a deal breaker since it's just barely too tight.
*When you're walking, the camera swings back & forth and knocks against your leg or in my case my car keys which are fastened to my belt with a carabiner. Again, not a deal breaker, but other straps have an adjustment slider that shortens the strap just a little on the fly.
*The shoulder pad, while comfortable enough for a 2 hour or so quick shoot, can get a bit uncomfortable on a full day, or if you have a 70-200 telephoto attached. I really wish the pad was made of neoprene instead, like the CS version.
With all these points in mind, I can absolutely recommend the RS Sport strap. However, I do see other options out there that might be a slightly better choice. And herein lies my questions.
I'm very interested in getting the Carry Speed FS-Pro strap. However, there are things that concern me about this product.
1) I have heard cases where the nylon mesh will detach from the neoprene pad (because they're sown together).
2) The FS-1 mounting plate seems to have a foldable ball point that allows you to lay the camera down flat on a tabletop should you choose to. But I'm wondering if I can get a CustomSLR universal mounting plate and then simply attach the ball point of the CS strap onto the CustomSLR universal plate instead.
Or, even better, could I simply take the ball point of the CS strap, dump the mounting plate altogether, and then thread that ball point through the RC2 plate that I currently have?
The Canon EOS R is the first full frame mirrorless camera to use the new RF mount. We're well underway putting it through our range of standard tests – take a look at how it compares to the competition and our thoughts on using it so far.
When the Fujifilm X-T2 arrived, it was more than just a modest upgrade to the already impressive X-T1. While the new X-T3 hasn't changed the overall design of the camera, this model is way more than a minor refresh: it's a major leap forwards.
