Investing in a good camera strap is one of the best decisions you can make as a photographer. Often, the camera straps supplied with your camera can be ergonomically challenging, creating unnecessary strain on your neck when you're trying to focus on taking photos. However, BlackRapid's range of camera straps are a welcome solution to this all-too-common problem.
BlackRapid dropped by The Photography Show's Burst Mode studio to show us their range of straps. However, they didn't just bring camera straps – they went one better and brought their exciting range of smartphone straps, which are perfect for MoJo (Mobile Journalism), vlogging and more.

One of our favorite straps was the BlackRapid Sport Breathe, which features a large, sculpted shoulder pad made with the same materials commonly used by the sports industry for effective heat-wicking action.
However, we also enjoyed seeing the BlackRapid Wander, a strap that's compatible with any smartphone case. This lanyard system is perfect for anyone looking to go on future extreme sports adventures without having to worry that they might lose their phone. Alternatively, if you often find yourself wondering where on earth you've left your device, this strap will keep it to-hand whenever you need it.
