New Camera Strap
I know some of you are always on the prowl for new ways to carry your camera. I picked up a new strap a couple months ago and today I finally got to use it and it was delightful. The strap is called The Loop from Luma (http://www.luma-labs.com/loop). It's like the Black Rapid strap only it gets much much better reviews for Customer Service. The Loop is designed to wear across your torso not hanging around your neck. You are instantly ready to shoot by just lifting the camera because it slides along the strap rather than the strap having to be adjusted.
I went to the track today for the Horse Racing. I wore it for just about 6 hours with my D80 and 80-400 lens attached. I made 2 small adjustments to the shoulder pad during the day as it slipped just a touch. Not once though did I ever feel like, man, my aching shoulder. I don't sit at the Track. I stood most of the day and walked up and down stairs and from one side of the track to the other multiple times. I ate a massive Polish dog loaded with onions and saurkraut while wearing it. To say I was happy with it's performance today is an understatement. I've been going to the track for years and shooting. This was the bomb today. Can't wait to see how it works out in more conventional situations.
