Q-strap Double Sling

Last year I purchased and reviewed the Q-strap Quick Strap Camera Sling  , as an alternative to the Black Rapids Camera sling. I have used that sling religiously ever since, and it has held up great. They have recently released the two camera double sling version of that same strap, that sells for less than a third of the nearest competitors product. The question is does the quality of this strap hold up to its predecessor? And is it a viable replacement for the much higher priced name brand straps?

The Sony Alpha 55 DSLR is on its way to my door.

Sony Alpha 55 SLT

I have finally pulled the trigger on a new camera purchase. I have been eying the new mirror-less Sony’s for quite a while now. First the A55 and recently the A77 (drool).  I usually don’t buy first generation devices for obvious reasons, but I came to the realization that the Alpha 77 is out of my budget right now. So I placed my order for the Sony Alpha 55 SLTA55VLBN Kit. It comes with the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 DT SAM Kit lens and the 55-200mm f/4.0-5.6 DT SAM lens.

The Q-strap (Quick Strap) Sling strap for Digital SLR cameras.

Tired of your DSLR beating the heck out your chest while your walking around, using the standard strap?  Then see if this sling style strap is the solution to your problem.

This is a review of the Quick Strap camera sling that I picked up on Ebay for less than $20 US. It appears to be a pretty blatant copy of the Black Rapids R-strap. But that didn’t stopped me from buying it.

After taking pictures with my new Sony Alpha 550, I was seeing reviews of a strap (sling) that allowed the camera to hang out of the way at your side when not in use. This was opposed to flopping around on your chest the way normal camera strap does. The brand I had been hearing a lot about was the R-Strap, manufactured by BlackRapid.
