After years of shooting the Seattle music scene, weddings, and other dynamic environments, Ron Henry had a flash of brilliance that would turn the camera world upside down. No more straps sliding off your shoulder. No more fumbling around, wasting time, or necklaces. Like a few of history’s most inspired inventions (the wheel, pre-grated cheese, the bug zapper, etc.), the concept is so simple it evaded everyone… until now.
With the advent of the Black Rapid R-Strap, your camera hangs upside down, ready to maneuver into position at a moment’s notice via a sliding ConnectR that allows the camera to move freely while the strap stays put. In a class of its own, the Black Rapid R-Strap is here to stay.
