The R-Strap is the most innovative camera strap ever to hit the market. This patent-pending piece of equipment offers unparalleled ease of access to your camera and peace of mind.
The R-Strap is worn diagonally across the torso from shoulder to hip and is adjustable to fit most photographers. The pad has a mesh underside for comfort and breathability.
Black Rapid's locking FastenR connects the R-Strap to the tripod socket located on either the camera body or the lens. Once connected, the camera hangs upside down, resting securely at your side or in the small of your back, with the lens pointing behind you.
With the camera at your hip or behind your back, you can manoeuvre easily through a crowd, carry a tripod or other gear, or simply have both hands free. When you’re ready to take the shot, the camera quickly glides up the strap into shooting position.
The FR-2 uses a high-grade rubber compression washer to ensure a snug, positive connection with your camera. Switching to the FR-2 offers you more comfort when shooting in portrait, and a sense of security knowing your camera is fastened tight to your R-Strap.
