    gone from blackrapid to carry speed fs-slim.

    pros

    -can mount on arca swiss tripod head straight away w/o taking off strap
    -no blackrapid carabiner to scratch the bottom of yr camera
    -its streamline with yr body when not using because the attachment point is on left side. (see picture then you wld know)
    -the neoprene padding is bouncy, so more comfy
    -camera can now sit flat on the table. BR can't.
    -can unclip the straps. the clip has safety feature too.

    cons
    -the attachment point takes longer to unmount becoz u need to unscrew but I dont do it often.
    -expensive
    -a bit heavier



    never looked back again

    does anyone here shoulder sling the lens? i find it easy for me to shoulder sling and shoot. I am carrying a small body - EOS 500D

    Just DON'T use Sun-sniper. It failed me miserably and cost me $500 for repairs.

    Got myself the RS7 from CP more than a year back, never had to look elsewhere ever since. I do have a habit of totally unhooking my whole rig when I shoot, then clip it back to the carabiner when moving off.

    Was quite convinced until I saw that the main band is elastic, which is a big no-no for me. I never trust anything that's elastic, as they tend to degrade over time and just stretch out in the end. Same for all those silly elastic cords on my backpacks. I usually buy one with minimal cords, then remove any one that's present and bin them. imho, elastic stuff never last at all...

    Agree with the fact that cams with the Fastenr on cannot sit flat on the table. I may have damaged quite a number of table tops back then, but now I jut leave the cam lying on its other side :P

    Haha. Didnt realize the acro for carry speed until u mentioned it. How's your slim strap? I don't find the pro version being too wide for me. It's so comfortable. They have just brought out the sling pouch. Contemplating to buy it

    Am using the CS FS Pro too. Switched from Crumpler Disgrace. No more neck aches!

    Just one complaint tho. When placing the plate with the ball head facing the front, the set up will scratch my fat 77mm lens. So I switched it to the rear. Abit awkward at first but got used to it. Am loving it ever since.

    Apart from the comfy-ness, the whole setup just excels in many other ways, and it doesn't bounce and bang my hip. Very careful engineering indeed

    Oh, so far, I have come across a guy whom did a review placing his plate the way u have yours. In the review, he didnt seem having any problem grabbing the camera etc. let me see if I can find that video again

    I swear by the Op/tech straps. I don't like the stock ones because they tend to be quite rough and I've gotten abrasions on my shoulder/neck before. The op/tech strap is larger and wider so the weight of the camera is spread over a larger surface area = less pressure on your shoulders/neck. You will also appreciate the softer 'foam' material very much !
