After researching online for the best sling strap for a couple of months, I eventually made up my mind to purchase the JOBY UltraFit Sling Strap. I should have done this long time ago since the Canon neck strap is very uncomfortable to use while taking photos. Having been to some events as a photography enthusiast and a blogger, the experience has taught me to minimise as much discomforts as possible while shooting. There's no way one can stay focus in getting a good shot if you are suffering neck pain. I get muscles sore a lot these days after coming back from events which take a few days to cover, especially around the neck, shoulders and arms. Those who own a DSLR camera, you'd surely know how much weight you need carry around due to the bulky size. What more can I say about the heavy load when I'm on an assignment, having a DSLR camera strapped to me all the time is already quite a burden and that doesn't include the additional weight of other gadgets I carry inside a backpack.
The reason I choose a costly sling strap produced for JOBY is because of the SpeedCinch System which allows the strap to adjust in seconds with a simple pull as demonstrated in JOBY's Youtube video. The system helps us to capture moments in the nick of time. It also prevents your DSLR camera from bumping and swinging around using the strap lock. Besides, it's advisable to buy a good quality sling strap rather than a cheap one. Don't put your DSLR camera at risk just to save a few bucks by getting a cheap strap that doesn't guarantee your expensive equipment won't subject to heavy drop. It might cost you a lot more to repair the camera later.
I found it easy to install the strap to my Canon DSLR camera. I have a feeling I'll be using this strap for a long time. It surely meets my needs especially during an event or while travelling.
