"Black Rapid Metro strap"


Polegate, GB
          

Hi Guys,

I've been using a Black Rapid RS7 strap for D700, D7100 and V1 cameras. I see that Black Rapid have made a strap specifically for CSC cameras and I wonder if anyone has had a chance to try one yet. Today is the 44th anniversary of my 21st birthday and I feel like treating myself.

Best wishes to all on here,

Dave

LOL, happy anniversary!

I haven't used it myself but I know several people on the forum have tried some different straps. Hope they chime in.

I have a RS7 and like it as I also use a TriPod a lot.

Is the Metro the strap you allude too?
It appears to be the cheapest and lightest.

They also have three small bags with camera mounting swivel on the strap.
This is the largest:

I have 2 Sport versions as I use them when riding my Motor bike.

I used them with my V1, D7000 and D800E, all 3 have a Manfrotto plate under them and the Rapid clips to the FastenR Tripod (FR-T1) under the Manfrotto plate.
Riding the bike at 60+ miles an pour, I have no concerns about any of the coming off.
