|Sling straps are increasingly popular with DSLR users because of the benefits of moving the weight to your shoulder instead of your neck. This particular sling strap has even more going for it than that. It features a large 400mm x 60mm x 8mm neoprene pad for exceptional comfort and weight reduction, an adjustable and detachable side strap which sits under your arm to hold the strap in position and an adjustable length strap from 70cm to 85cm to suit a range of body shapes and sizes. The main strap also has a quick release buckle to the front so that you can attach and detach in seconds.
The real plus of this strap though is the camera fixing. A metal plate with stainless steel bearings attaches to the tripod socket of your EOS camera and then slides easily up and down the strap on twin sliders. This means that your camera hangs with the lens pointing down and out of harmís way. And when the camera is lifted to your eye ready for the shot, the strap stays out of the way beneath the camera.
The main strap sits on your left shoulder, the camera and lens hangs down on your right hip and an adjustable stop clip prevents the camera from sliding too far round your back.
This upgraded version also includes a swivel quick release link which incorporates the clever dual lock buckle to stop accidental release.
