More about BlackRapid, The Original Camera Sling:
BlackRapid has set the standard for camera slings since 2008. Founder/ CEO Ron Henry invented a system in which the camera hangs upside down by its tripod mount. When ready to shoot, the camera can easily glide up the webbing into position and then be placed back down at the photographer’s side, hands-free. BlackRapid combines the comfort of a well-made shoulder pad with the convenience of a highly functional sling system.
Based in Seattle, WA, BlackRapid’s products are distributed in over 24 countries.
