Why pay full price when you can get the same thing for less.

Posted: December 19, 2011 in Photography

As a full time photographer I spend a lot of money on equipment. I am also a gear head so I have lots of little thing nic nac’s that help me with my job. One little piece of gear I now love is my  “Q” Strap. Or if you payed full price the “R” Strap.

I have always hated the stock camera straps that come with your DLSR body’s. They are more in your way then really helping you.

I had a “R: Stap given to me from a friend because he up grade to the new “R” Strap. After the wedding season was over this year i missed placed it. So it to buy a new one. I wasn’t about to go spend $53.95 plus s&h for a new one. So I went to my trusty site http://www.dealextreme.com/ and found the same thing with a better camera braket.

Here is the Brake down:


R strap from black Rapid $53.95

The RS-4’s smart design is lightweight and low profile. It features a quick access, secure pocket for storing two extra memory cards in their protective cases. Like all R-Straps, the RS-4 is incredibly comfortable and quick on the draw.

Quick Strap Shoulder Strap for SLR/DSLR Cameras

Q strap $16.60 + free shipping

Catching funny pictures is great as long as they are not of you. Often times pictures are taken at the most inopportune time, leaving you with that awful look on your face, or catching a picture of you when you fall down and make a fool of yourself and so on. Now it is time for revenge, always be ready for those payback shots of your friends clowning around with this handy shoulder strap. No more sore neck from holding that SLR camera. This sturdy shoulder strap is made of high quality materials for an ultra long lasting life. Be sure to be ready to catch those candid shots today.

– Material: polyester
– Ideal for carrying your digital camera
– Stylish and comfortable padded design reduces carrying stress to the neck

Pros and Cons

Both straps do the same thing. They are made with the same design and the same material.

The on thing I like more about the “Q” strap over the “R” strap is the camera mount. Its clean, smooth and out of the way.

More gear head stuf to come in the new year.
