After about 5 years of wondering what it was like to have a BlackRapid strap, l finally find out tonight. Actually, this arrived about a week ago in the same order as the Tamron 150-600, but l've been too busy to try it out. The strap that goes under your left arm can be removed and you can attach another strap that will allow you to carry 2 cameras-l like the versatility. It attaches to the camera's tripod socket. Which means it can be a hassle if you plan on switching between handheld and tripod on the same outing. But when l'm not going to be using a tripod, this sure beats the typical strap. It even came with a nice decal l put on my desk hutch.

Been thinking about getting one of these, but the double for when I am shooting sportscars in the paddock - one body with the 17-55, the other with the 80-200. I think I will make a point of stopping in at my local shop to see if they even have them.

I have used the double for many years. I called them about adding a third strap across the front for a third cam. They are not interested in doing such option. boooo

3 cameras-wow. I don't think l'd want a 3rd camera strapped to me. 2 is enough.

Its a sports thing, usually football. The chest cam is for the play in your face where you just point and hold the button down.
