I must be a bit slow and I don't think I get it. When I look at the BlackRapid straps, they just look like regular camera straps. Ok, I get that the strap can move independently to the shoulder pad and that hanging the camera upside down can allow you to bring it to eye level faster. I'm cool with that and I appreciate that alone might be enough reason to consider them. But as far as being a comfortable camera strap to use all day, do they differ significantly to any other camera strap with a lot of shoulder padding? I've got Tamrac N45's on my cameras. These have a very nice, suede shoulder pad and I find them very comfortable. But seeing 90% of people here seem to be using the BlackRapid straps, I'm starting to wonder if I'm missing something.
