Black Rapid clone Dual Shoulder Sling - $20

A little while ago I ordered one of these 'Quick Rapid' brand Black Rapid clones off eBay:

Quick Rapid Double Dual Shoulder Strap Sling Belt For Two Cameras DSLR Black

I thought it was cheap enough to try out. No great loss if it was garbage.
Cost me $20, delivered. Item arrived a few days ago.

Just reporting that it is quite well made - strong nylon straps, good stitching, good shoulder padding, metal clips, metal camera base plate etc - and fits very well on the chest.

I'm not a big fan of carrying cameras upside down by the tripod socket, but in some situations when you need to rock with two cameras this kind of harness could be useful. I see photogs using this kind of harness all the time.

Pricing seems to be VERY variable on eBay for this - from $16 to $125 - but it is all exactly the same item made in China.

Just FYI.

I've been using a couple of the Black Rapid clone straps for 3 years now with no problems. They're quite sturdy. I can't justify spending $80 on something when I can spend $15 for the same thing.

I have the same one. Feels good, does the job and it's cheap. I use it to secure my cameras when doing aerial photography with the door removed, and I still have both my cameras, so it works. lol
