I am looking to get me a BlackRapid strap or something in that line which I can use with my 5D3. In most scenarios I use my the 5D3 on my tripod for landscape shots, but at times I like to detach it from the tripod and shoot handheld. When handheld, I like the camera to have some form of secured strap which I can use to wrap around my wrist or leave it hanging on the side of my shoulder.
I am looking for something that is reliable, secured, and I can attach/detach the strap with ease depending on my shooting scenarios. The heaviest load it will need to withstand is 5D3 + 70-200 IS II. Any advice or recommendations? Oh also anyone used a wrist strap, any recommendations on that? Thanks.
I use a Blackrapid strap with a Kirk 1" clamp attached to the lug – comfortable to carry, easy to move clamp from the Arca plates on body to lens, or remove for tripod/monopod use.
+1 I use the exact same combination, having gotten this recommendation a few months ago from Neuro on this site.
Offers good shoulder support with camera/lens off the right hip. Very comfortable and secure. Being able to quickly remove the Kirk clamp is a big plus going to/from tripod to hand-held.
I have recently begun using this combination with my 5D3 + 100-400 ii (also 7D). Works great!
A very good solution.
