BlackRapid Shooter

Being one of the industry leaders in Camera Straps BlackRapid has had a bit of experience in what’s worked and what hasn’t in the market.  Seven years of development, innovation, and customer interaction have resulted in the new BlackRapid Breathe line of camera straps. Getting away from the neckstrap you get with your camera allows for more flexibility, comfort, and airflow. Especially during long periods of shooting. BlackRapid Breathe is designed to be lighter, more comfortable, easier to use, and most importantly more secure.

So what do you get in this next generation?black-rapid-mount

  • A new shoulder pad design for better weight and position
  • Airmesh grip layer to fix the strap to your shoulder and provide ventilation
  • Straps now come with the Brad underarm stabilizing strap
    (instead of paying another $15)
  • Better Duraflex buckles, one of the higher end suppliers
  • Springloaded bumper locks secure the camera’s range on the strap
  • Hypalon hook up points, the rubber they use to make durable inflatable boats for increased strength
  • New connectors with the CR3 (Connect R) and FR5 (Fasten R) as seen right which lock into BlackRapid’s lockstar for a more secure hold on the camera

Meaning if that lock comes loose, that is now secured even more with a bracket finally, your camera will fall. For years I’ve suggested OP/TECH uni-loop and system connectors as a way to connect to the top of the camera from the strap but now BlackRapid offers a tether accessory kit. As my solution is four times cheaper than the $35 tether kit and has buckles if your interested in a backup our recommendation stays the same.

 I love traveling with other photographers on #mckaylive trips. Kari, a trip participant, noticed this line of trees and shared her perspective with me. I had glanced at them but hadn't noticed how nicely they lined up when standing at a certain spot #teacherbecomesthestudent :) We had a great day leaving behind the cherry blossom crowds for a much quieter walk around #HarpersFerryWV. And a visit to #BolivarHeights a much fought over hilltop during the civil war and the site of the largest surrender of Union troops - over 12,000 men surrendered to Stonewall Jackson. *  Captured with the #Panasonic #GH4 and #1235mm lens
 "Such a blunder sometimes it makes me wonder why I even bring the thunder" * The Jefferson Memorial might be my favorite. Jefferson's quotes inside, the circular structure surrounded by the columns, the fact that it is perched on a more organic, curving body of water. There is much to love here! Inside I chose to go wide with the 12mm Laowa to capture that awesome dome and offer a different perspective. * Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and @venuslaowa #12mm f/2.8 lens
 Up early and rewarded with another fantastic sunrise. The colors were brief but beautiful. There were literally thousands of photographers lined up along the tidal basin. The reflections were beautiful but those can be captured anytime of the year, it was important to include some of the blossoms. *  Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and #Canon 24-70 lens
