Nikon & Black Rapid enter into a partnership w/ 2 New Straps

pic_140225_03_01It’s not often that Nikon partners up. With the wide acceptance of the Black Rapid strap as the gear of choice for a lot of workers,now you can show your yellow and black colors proudly, while saving your neck and shoulders.
These new designs will fit the Heavier DSLRS as well as a modified version for the lighter weight Nikon 1 series.
As I pack for the next assignment, the BlackRapids are already in the bag.

Specialized quick-draw strap developed in cooperation with BlackRapid, Nikon releases the Quick-Draw Strap and Quick-Draw Strap S

The Quick-Draw Strap and Quick-Draw Strap S were developed based on quick-draw straps invented by photographer and BlackRapid founder, Ron Henry, and popular throughout the market for their incredible convenience. The straps have been further refined to offer even greater convenience.

Along with the great mobility offered by BlackRapid products through specifications that enable on-the-go shooting with a mechanism that allows the camera to slide diagonally up and down the shoulder strap, a system that utilizes the camera’s tripod socket so that the camera hangs upside down for a smooth grip, a shoulder pad that effectively distributes weight for less burden, and an under-arm tether that holds the strap firmly in place, these two new straps offer an even greater sense of security with a safety strap that prevents the camera from falling in the unlikely event the fastener comes loose, and a cover that prevents the carabiner that connects the strap to the camera from scratching the camera body.

The Quick-Draw Strap, with a wider shoulder pad, is suited to use with digital SLR cameras. The Quick-Draw Strap S, with a narrower shoulder pad, is suited to use with Nikon 1 advanced cameras with interchangeable lenses and Nikon COOLPIX compact digital cameras.
