I have had various SLR cameras over the years and have always used them on or close to the water. The standard straps provide with them have never been great. I have never liked wearing the strap around my neck and have always ended up wrapping the strap around my wrist/arm a few times to keep the camera safe. Thinking back the camera was never really secure, but I have been lucky and have never dropped a camera in the water or on the ground.
As I have been doing more photography lately the strap situation was becoming more of an issue. After looking around for a while I found the Black Rapid Sport camera strap. The system is similar to the type of straps the military are now using for rifle slings. That in itself was a good reason to check the Black Rapid Sport 2 out.
