    Kirk SS-1 reviews

    SS-1 Security Strap is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The simple solution. I have a 500mm f4 and when is coupled with my D700 and the flash, carring everything around without the backpack is very difficult. The strap from Kirk is very practical with the Arca Swiss style clamp; allow you to better distribute the weight and have your camera ready to use. The clamp could also be used as head for monopods (very usefull) The only suggestion to Kirk should to add something like a safety lock to avoid accidental loosen of the clamp and then fall on the ground risk for the lens. I know, the pin in arca swiss plate should prevent it to slip, but in this case you do not have your expensive glasses on a tripod, but hanged on your side...More safety will be welcomed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Strap Ever I will keep this short. I have had a number of different straps in the past. I was never satisfied with any of them. They did not work well when carrying 3 bodies and lens combos for event photography. I can safely say that after purchasing the Kirk Security Strap, I will never need another strap ever. They rotate perfectly at events and the added bonus of them having Arca-Swiss type plates, makes it a definite winner. I can quickly remove the cameras and place them on the tripod, or just attach it to the tripod as is ... the perfect strap.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good strap.but not great. Ordered this to 'hang' my gripped Canon 7D + EF 500mm f/4. Added attraction was the Arca-Swiss QR plate,since the 500mm has an A-S plate. I expected more padding in this shoulder strap.was disappointed in how thin the shoulder pad is, considering the weight this strap is supposed to support. It would be adequate with my 7D + EF 400mm f5.6. At this price point...the shoulder pad should be a little more robust. 1 star loss for the inadequate shoulder pad.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect strap for your big lens I use this with my Nikon f/4.0 200-400mm zoom with tele-extender on my Nikon D4s. The strap is wide enough to distribute the weight so I can carry it comfortably. The acra-swiss attachment is solid and secure. I would like it to have included an additional safety strap to attach from the strap to the tripod screw at the base of the camera. I have added one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Solution I had been using a variety of solutions to carry a second body and/or long lens, and was never comfortable with the DIY straps I have rigged up. After almost dropping my 400 f/2.8 I realized that the Kirk Strap I had been looking at for years, was actually the perfect solution. It is both comfortable and secure. I wish I had bought it years ago.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting design - very useful I have a Kirk ball head and have purchased quick release plates for two cameras and a Canon 100-400mm telephoto, this strap works surprisingly well to carry around the cameras and the telephoto. The connection is rock solid. The only downside is the large knob for tightening the clamp.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hanging around your shoulder It is a useful addition to your camera bag, using the arcaswiss style clamp, you can fix your 70 200 or 300 2.8 on your side and shoot with your longer lens, when needed, it can be easily retrieved and used...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very useful device Used this strap recently for my Nikon 200-500mm lens hiking through a wildlife reserve. This is the most comfortable way I have found to date for carrying a moderately big or heavy lens, whether mounted on the camera or not. I was a little nervous about having my lens dangling from the strap at first, but the clamp is really solid and it holds the lens or camera plate very securely. Carrying it slung across my shoulder, I found that the balance was good and it was reasonably comfortable to carry. When it is mounted to the camera, it is easy enough to bring the camera up to shoot without removing it from the strap, although I usually took it off for any extended shooting or, of course, for mounting on a tripod. The only reason I gave 4 stars rather than 5 is because the strap has very little padding on the shoulder pad, but that isn't a deal breaker for me. It seemed like it was expensive for what you get, but it is a very solid Arca-Swiss clamp, and just a clamp like this without the strap would probably cost about as much - so, basically, it is a very good clamp with a free strap. I highly recommend this strap for carrying big lenses if you are already committed to the Arca-Swill system. I wouldn't hesitate to use it for a bigger lens.
