BlackRapid 481001 overview

  • 1Description

The black, Classic Retro RS-4 Camera Strap commemorates BlackRapid's 10-year anniversary. It is designed to be worn across a right or left-handed user's body, draped from one shoulder to the opposing hip. A connected camera can then rest upside-down along the hip so that it can be quickly raised for use. Incorporating a moisture-wicking shoulder pad with a zippered pocket suitable for small accessories such as memory cards and batteries, this strap is built to provide most photographers with a comfortable and versatile carrying solution for one camera, regardless if it is worn over the left or right shoulder. The length of the Classic Retro RS-4 is adjustable from 29.0 to 66.0" and its webbing measures up to 1.0" wide. Its compact form factor is robust enough for heavy loads and spring-loaded bumper locks that can be slid up and down the length of the strap's nylon webbing make it especially easy to limit excess camera movement along the length of the Classic Retro RS-4.

To attach to a camera or a lens, the BlackRapid Classic Retro RS-4 Camera Strap features a durable, brass and zinc-alloy CR-3 ConnectR locking carabiner. An included BlackRapid FR-5 FastenR Breathe creates a connection point using a camera or lens's 1/4"-20 tripod mount. The FR-5 FastenR Breathe has a large, integrated D-ring for easy use with BlackRapid straps that utilize a CR-3 ConnectR.

When multiple cameras or lenses need to be carried, a separately-available BlackRapid CoupleR Strap allows a BlackRapid Classic Retro RS-4 Camera Strap to be joined with a second camera strap, that is also compatible with a CoupleR, to create a functional double-camera harness.

A BlackRapid Camera Safety TetheR is provided to reinforce the Classic Retro RS-4 Camera Strap while in use, as well as a plastic BlackRapid Lockstar Breathe Carabiner Protector, which is compatible with BlackRapid straps that feature a CR-3 ConnectR locking carabiner. By folding over a CR-3 ConnectR, the Lockstar Breathe prevents unintentional user contact with a CR-3 ConnectR that could cause it to accidentally unlock. Additionally, it helps to block the metal surface of a CR-3 ConnectR from scratching a connected camera or lens.

    10-Year Anniversary Edition Classic Retro RS-4 Camera Strap (Black) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the strap that made them! When I saw this strap I was so excited. �I have logged so many miles with this first generation strap I could not begin to tally them... �I some how (In a NYC Trip) misplaced mine on a multi-camera, multi-lens trip. �I have tried several of their newer straps, I love the new Keeper W/Cover but This OG strap just feels right to me! �If you have never tried a crossbody strap, do it. �Your camera is out of your way when your not using it and right there when you are!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Same great strap Sometimes you need to switch from one side to the other and this strap works just fine. The padding is excellent making it very comfortable on long hikes. Glad I made this purchase

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable Overall the strap is really comfortable and I like the versatility. My only complaint is that it is a bit too long for shorter people so I end up moving the whole strap around most of the time, instead of just sliding the camera. However, the overall quality, ease of use, and comfort over shadows that issue.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent for the price This is my third BR strap. My first two are RS-7s. I've gotten used to both of those so this was a bit of adjustment. Not better, not worse, just different. Prefer the shoulder pad on the RS-7, like the adjustments features of the RS-4. But, no matter what, I wouldn't trade any of them. I use the straps for city walking, hiking, and wherever else I take the camera. Never had a problem with security and haven't had so far with this one. So much better for carrying than an around the neck strap. I will never go back. Thanks BR for the anniversary sale.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even Better than the Original I've been using this strap since I purchased an original version about 8 years ago. I was pretty happy with the original and now they've actually improved it. The new version has a zippered compartment on the shoulder pad which I use to carry a spare camera battery. Speaking of the shoulder pad, the new version uses a ventilated liner which is cooler and grips your shirt or jacket better. This strap lets me carry my camera upside down at my right thigh with the lens pointing to the rear. No fear of a shoulder strap slipping off your shoulder or a strap around your neck giving you a headache. Particularly important with a full frame camera with a 70 - 200 2.8 attached. A bit heavy. This strap works perfectly. When I need the camera i just reach down and slide it up the strap to my eye in one motion. I may just buy another one of these in case they decide to stop offering it! Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfortable Over left shoulder very comfortable and keeps camera lens pointing downward and towards the back so that maneuvering through crowded places is no problem. Access to camera is very quick and easy.
