This little invention is the heart of it all. When BLACKRAPID invented the camera sling, this little device is what turned the photographic world upside down. Attaching a camera strap to the tripod screw on the bottom of a camera allows you to use the camera’s center of gravity to sit at your side securely. Not slipping off your shoulder and down your arm at the most inconvenient moment.
What makes the FastenR so revolutionary?
- Increased security: By attaching the strap to the tripod screw, the camera is less likely to fall or be dropped accidentally.
- Convenience: When the camera is not in use, the FastenR allows you to take advantage of having the center of gravity of your camera by balancing it upside down at your hip or just behind your back. Making it easy to both carry it and sling it quickly into action.
- A sense of security and belonging: Your camera is an expensive piece of equipment, and when it’s attached to you, you’ll always know where it is. This little tool uses the tripod screw hole on the bottom of your camera to hold it securely to your camera strap — and yourself.
Every BLACKRPAID camera strap comes with its own FastenR5 (FR-5). However, if you have more than one camera, you can quickly switch between cameras or switch between camera straps at your convenience.
The FastenR is made from nylon over-molded and stainless steel construction with a rubber washer. The FastenR post is threaded to fit a standard tripod-mount hole on the camera.
