Good strap with small issue.

Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap with FastenR FR-3:

This strap is comfortable and priced well. My only complaints are that you take up the tripod hole, but I have a Joby quick release plate that allows it to be used so it's not a real issue for me, and the other issue is it is noisy. I used some cloth tape to damp the noise and am now happy with it.

Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap with FastenR FR-3:

Heavy duty, comfortable, solid product. Clipped it to my Manfrotto tripod mount rather than using the included mount. Works great. The carabiner is threaded and has a plastic clip to keep it from opening, so there is double insurance that its not coming undone. Great stuff

I have a small but expensive camera that I'm always afraid of dropping. This strap attaches solidly to camera and gives me peace of mind in case I loose my grip.

Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap with FastenR FR-3:

Great wrist buddy to use, especially on cameras with the Hasselblad type shoulder strap connectors. I would like to see a thief try to steal your camera when using this wrist strap. Highly recommend for use on mirror-less and/or point and shoot cameras. Excellent product!!!!

Not a fan of Neck/Shoulder Straps!

By Sandy

Verified Buyer

Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap with FastenR FR-3:

I am not a fan of camera neck straps/shoulder straps. I do have a BlackRapids shoulder strap that I used to love and will use if absolutely necessary, but due to a shoulder injury am unable to use comfortably anymore.
I have an older wrist strap from a different company that I have used, and appreciated, for the last couple of years. When I saw that BlackRapids was making a wider, seemingly more comfortable and sturdy, wrist strap, I ordered it immediately. It did not disappoint. I took it on a shoot yesterday, over uneven, rocky ground, and never lost my grip. It is quite comfortable, becoming unnoticeable after you put it on. I was shooting a Sony A7RII with a 24-70mm FE lens.
I do not use the tripod adaptor to connect the strap, but the O-Rings that are attached to the camera body.

Beats the neck strap Hands down !

By Stacey Mitchell

Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap with FastenR FR-3:

I just recently purchased a Canon G5x from B&H to partner with my Canon 5D MK3. I thought the neck strap on a small camera would be fine. With my neck fusions I am very touchy about things around the back of my neck. I ordered the Black Rapid wrist strap . I love it. Why doesn't Canon offer these. Neck straps are awful !
I also use the Black Rapid Sport on the big 5D MK 3. With the Black Rapid products I feel secure in my carry and comfortable all day . Get one Now !

Another alternitive to shoulder straps or neck straps

Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap with FastenR FR-3:

I have been using mine for a few years now so I have enough experience with this strap. Not the best for heaveir set ups like Full Frame bodies and Tele lenses. But very good for my D750 and "G" Prime lenses all day long or lesser weight. Like mirrorless for sure. My fingers did feel the pressure or pain of Tamron 15-30 VC on D750 after two or three hours the first time, second time things where easier to manage but not recomended since the weight was a bit much to get use to easily. Seems over priced at first but look at the ratings and know your equipment will never drop with Black Rapid ever. Love the adjustible strap, Steel clasp and pivot points. The best there is periord.

Working well with a Nikon D750

      Comments about BlackRapid Wrist Strap with FastenR FR-3:

      I bought this because I find neck straps to cause shoulder pain. I shoot mainly prime lenses (1.8g varieties) and my heaviest lens is the Nikon 24-120 f4. At first, I fastened it to the tripod mount, but then I purchased the Ruggard fasteners (see recommended accessories) and I run two of these through the strap mount on the camera. This keeps my tripod mount free for the tripod base. I use two fasteners in case one fails. I'm concerned this arrangement might rub the side of the camera, but so far, so good. I usually keep my fingers on the grip as I walk and have the strap for safety. When I let it dangle I feel confident in the strap and fastener's stability.

                I couldn't be happier with my BlackRapid Wrist Strap. I love my video camera but when the strap broke it became awkward to handle. The BR Wrist Strap is the best in construction, price, and fit.

                    This is an excellent, well manufactured product that is over engineered for my use. I work with one camera / lens combo in my hand. I never hang the camera on the strap, but use the strap in case of a slip or bump. A lighter weight karabiner and strap will work better for me. A bit noisy, but an fine product. The tripod lugs are very good, and with a different clip / strap (which I will make) will work very nicely. Your use may be different - I would recommend it.
