I read a lot of blogs and learn a lot about other folks.... how they live, what they like and the such. I'm not real good about commenting, which I should do more of.... and I guess my excuse is that usually our internet is so bad that it just takes too long.
Anyway, Al, of the Bayfield Bunch, is an excellent photographer and sometimes he comments about the kind of cameras, lenses etc that he uses. Quite a while back he told us about the camera strap he uses... a Black Rapid camera harness. I usually have both a camera and binoculars with me and am constantly using either one or the other... sometimes nearly strangling myself when the straps get tangled. I googled Black Rapid and found I could get one that you could incorporate a binocular strap onto it. Wow!
It took me at least a year to decide if the expense would be worth it to me, but after checking out the various types, I decided to get the double harness and the add-on binocular strap. Often I'll carry my Leica with the variable zoom as well as my Canon with whatever lens I think I'll need. I know... my hobby has turned into a little more than a point and shoot thing.
Here I am all decked out with my new Black Rapid strap.... UPS delivered it yesterday.
Weight is distributed very well... and no more hanging myself on the straps!
I don't always carry 2 cameras, but... what the heck... I can hook a water bottle or GPS on the other side and keep my hands free.
So... thank you, Al, for your blog.
We sure can learn a lot from our friends!
That's All For Today!
