I knew I was in store for some serious fun when I met up with Zach Settewongse and Amanda Pollard ofCOLORFULGREY.COMto review a couple of brand new camera strapsfrom Joby, the UltraFit Sling Strap and 3-Way Camera Strap. We hit the streets of San Francisco (my playground) to put them to the test. Make sure to hit play on the video below. We ended up with some really amazing shots and learned exactly how much these straps could handle when out and about in a crowd having to work fast while keeping our gear safe.I have always used a camera strap. I photograph my wee one everyday and professionally I photograph many families with wee ones. I need to have my hands free and be able to move around quickly while knowing my camera is secure. One of the features of the UltraFit Sling Strap for Women is that you can securely tuck your camera away behind you. This is a very important feature to me because I don't want to hit any wee ones on the head with a heavy camera. That is SURE to leave a dent. You are able to cinch the strap up high on your body to avoid any swinging which is something I have yet to be able to do with any other camera strap I have owned. The strap has no buckles that stand in the way from being able to wear a bag as well. I am not one to drop my bag for a shot. I like to wear my camera on top of my bag. The strap moves easily over my bag. The materials that make up the UltraFit Sling Strap for Women is very soft and does not cause any irritating friction on my neck. The stainless steel thumbscrew feels very secure and never once became lose during the entire day out.
I am very happy to own the UltraFit Sling Strap for Women by Joby!
Here are some of my shots from my day shooting around Fisherman's Wharf and China Town in San Francisco CA.
Thanks Amanda for putting up with us all day and taking some amazing footage!
