    The mechanism of pulling down a strap to shorten the sling seems a smart idea. But in real life

    0 3/5 pingapple (Singapore) - See all my reviews This review is from: Carry Speed New 2014 FS-Pro, DSLR Camera Quick Release Neoprene Sling Shoulder Neck Strap + F-2 foldable mounting plate (Electronics) The local shop only carried the FS-Pro. Bought one and found it too bulky and too heavy. The mechanism of pulling down a strap to shorten the sling seems a smart idea. But in real life, the length of the sling will slide back longer while you walk. Feeling troublesome to adjust the sling length for the whole day. I have used Peak Design leash, slides, capture and SpiderHolster Pro Think Tank ProSpeed Belt Adapter Kit. They are all better than the FS-Pro. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 10, 2015

    The Best Strap But Not Easy to Get

    0 5/5 Librarius42 - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Carryspeed Fs-Slim Prime Quick Release Neoprene Sling Neck Strap (Accessory) This is simply the best camera strap I have ever seen. Get one if you can - you won't regret it.Update: A mixed experience here. As fans of Carryspeed know, this is probably the best camera strap ever made. The design is perfect and the craftsmanship is first rate. However, Carryspeed is having patent problems and their future is uncertain. There are knock-offs surfacing now with variations on the name. Also the Carryspeed website has been pirated. I ordered the strap from Turtleback, Ltd because it was the only source I could find at the time. Delivery from Hong Kong took three weeks, and with shipping the strap cost over $90.00! I absolutely love the strap, but you might not find it worth the hassle. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 10, 2014

    Good deal Carry Sling

    I purchased this strap recently to provide another carry option for my Canon 7D with 70-200mm L 4 lens. I was concerned after reading several reviews on similar low priced products which showed periodic fastener failure- the horror of losing several thousand dollars of equipment to a faulty part is hard to take. Anyway, after pondering the situation and reading the seller's description, I decided to go with this product. The strap was easy to attach to the camera and seemed sturdy: it wore well, also. I pulled on the fastener to test possible strength, durability and construction quality. No failure noted. So far, all is well. It appears as though the product will live up to its billing of being tested to 150 pounds load capacity - at least enough strength to carry most camera/lens combinations without apparatus failure. I still periodically check the screw to ensure that it is tight, secure, and appropriately placed. The hook is starting to flake but this appears to be cosmetic... 4/5 Big Buy - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Not too bulky, makes camera lightweight, and secondary strap keeps it secure!

    I love this strap! I did a lot of research into which camera strap to buy. I travel a lot and also photograph portrait sessions and weddings. I wanted something that was versatile for my different photography. It was also important to have something sturdy for my $2000+ equipment. I did not want to risk having my camera drop on the ground. I also didn't want something that cost $60+. I am a petite female and was also considering the female specific styles since I figured they would be more comfortable for me. I decided to order the Fotasy and compare it to the more expensive/highly recommended and well-known brand to see which one I liked better. This was the clear winner! First, it was about 1/8 of the price. Second, it is very comfortable. I didn't find any issues with this strap being a non-female-specific design. Third, the screw was very secure.

    Finally, a pro viewfinder magnifier for the Nikon D800

    Almost all the other viewfinder magnifiers out there are primarily for Canon and have fit issues on a Nikon. I saw this Carry Speed VF-4 at NAB 2013 on the last day, but they were sold out. They are finally restocked and offered a $50 coupon promotion.My VF-4 arrived yesterday via registered US mail. I had to sign for it. I was glad I was home or I'd have had to stand in line at the post office which, believe me, is not pleasant.The VF-4 is exactly what I hoped it to be.- adjustable -- the mounting brackets allow precise positioning for the D800, but also for a variety of other cameras. Brackets allow a broad range of left/right and up/down adjustment, then can be locked very securely in place with Allen head screws (Allen wrench is supplied.)- sized right -- you can see the entire D800 LCD screen, yet still easily reach all the control buttons on the camera back- built-in diopter adjustment and good optics -- the screen is sharp corner... 4/5 Daniel A.

    Baseplate Issues

    0 3/5 chaseman - See all my reviews This review is from: Brand New Kamerar VF-4+ Plus Universal LCD View Finder with Extend Bracket for Dv Camera LED Light SLR B (Camera) The VF-4 LCD viewfinder is just what I needed for my Nikon D7100. It fits very well and makes shooting video in daylight situations a breeze, however the baseplate has a MAJOR FLAW. As I loosened the red set screw which appears to be aluminum or similar lightweight metal it became jammed in the baseplate as if it were cross threaded. The viewfinder was loose enough to slide out but now it will not tighten back due to the jammed screw. The only possible fix, other than a new one, would be to drill out the existing set screw and rethread the hole. Not what I expected or wanted to do. Since their web site is currently down, I have no way to contact them for a replacement base as mine should still be under warranty. I understand things happen but this is a huge inconvenience. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 1, 2013

    Not all it could be

    First off I bought mine direct from PNC because Amazon US would not ship to the UK and Amazon UK did not stock. No matter, price slightly better than Amazon price at time of writing.I bought this for use on a full spectrum converted Nikon D800 that spends most of its time in Live View because of the use of visually opaque filters on the lens. What I liked in the spec was the quality of the viewing lens, the accommodation of a full 3.2" display and an extended mounting that was compatible with battery packs. I also liked the idea that the mounting plate itself is compatible with the Arca-Swiss system.Within minutes of receiving the system I realised there are a few limitations. These are not show stoppers, but if you are looking to use equipment to the maximum potential then these are shortfalls that hopefully PNC will fix in due course.First off, in terms of gripes, is that the mounting plate has a rubber top. This kind of misses the point of... 3/5 P. Tudor "Nikon Professional User" (United Kingdom) - See all my reviews, December 2, 2013

Then while waiting in line, my 7D with my Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS attached detached from the bracket and hit the ground. Evidently, the hook that holds the camera is made of cheap pot metal and the tip simply broke off.

    Solution to Broken Fastener

    I just got this strap in the mail and from what I can see it looks to be a very promising strap. The tripod mount leaves room for the battery door top open and had a slit for your wrist straps as well. Prior to buying this strap I saw a lot of complaints about the fastener.SOLUTION: I put a simple key ring into the fastener and then looped that around the square metal piece that the main strap slide inside. (Sorry, I don't know what it's called). This way, if the fastener ever did break on me, at least the key ring will save it from falling. I will post a photo on flickr with the exact tags, "quick strap fastener ring" for those who would like a visual representation.Conclusion: Just pop on the key ring to the fastener and you've got yourself a blackrapid at ~1/3 of the cost. Cheers :)UPDATE (1 Year Later): I have been taking my camera out with this strap at least once a week since I bought it and nothing has gone wrong with it at all! The padding... 4/5 Anthony P.

    Viewfinder makes DSLR Video a breeze

    The ability of digital SLRs to take high definition video has turned the video world upside down. In particular, Magic Lantern firmware has enabled raw HD video of quality that far surpasses that which can be achieved with most camcorders. The main disadvantages are the lack of continuous autofocus, the inability to see the LCD screen in sunlight, the difficulty in focusing on the tiny screens (even 3.2" looks tiny to me), and the difficulty in holding the camera steady at a distance of 14-16" in front of your eyes.A viewfinder helps solve all of these problems. My previous experience was with the Hoodman viewfinder. The very cheap optics and inadequate method of fastening the viewfinder to the camera with straps made this unacceptable. The gold standard of viewfinders is the Zacuto Z-Finder Pro. However, this is terribly expensive.After much research I decided on the Carry Speed VF-4 viewfinder.

    For the most part, I am pleased with this product purchase. Unfortunately, demo videos on the Carryspeed web site claim it will fit "any DSLR", but it does not fit the Panasonic GH3 without a few extra steps. I understand that one-size-fits-all doesn't always apply, but it does take some value away from this product for my use.The mostly good:This is a well made loupe for cameras, and can definitely help when shooting in bright sunlight, as well as add an extra point of contact (your face) for more stable shots.The glass magnifier/diopter seems to be of decent optical quality for a product in this price range.The diopter area flips up so you have access to your camera's screen, which is handy when viewing it with others or if your camera's screen has touch capabilities.The mounting system will fit various, but not all cameras.

I have only had it for about 2 days at this point. I have found that is only works with regular usb cables. I have 2 flat usb cables that the male end that plugs into the charger seems to not make contact properly. I have no issues with the flat cables on any other charger I own or when connecting to a computer. I believe it has to do with the female usb port on the charger itself. If you look at the ports the center piece that holds the contacts is not straight in relation to the outer shroud. Both of them seem to have a slight angle which is probably causing the connection issues. As for how fast it charges? I'm still unsure because I have not tried charging while playing a game to see if it can keep up yet. This may simply become a charger for my backup batteries if it isn't up to snuff.

Subway Car Within the Metal Tags For Bags

With the 1930s came the widespread use of stainless steel for carbodies. The typical passenger car was now much lighter than its "heavyweight" wood cousins of old. The new "lightweight" and streamlined cars carried passengers in speed and comfort to an extent that had not been experienced to date. Aluminum and Cor-Ten steel were also used in lightweight car construction, but stainless steel was the preferred material for carbodies. It isn't the lightest of materials, nor is it the least expensive, but stainless steel cars could be, and often were, left unpainted except for the car's reporting marks that were required by law. By the end of the 1930s, railroads and carbuilders were debuting car body and interior styles that could only be dreamed of before. In 1937, the Pullman Company delivered the first cars equipped with roomettes – that is, the car's interior was sectioned off into compartments, much like the coaches that were still in widespread use across Europe. Pullman's roomettes, however, were designed with the single traveler in mind. The roomette featured a large picture window, a privacy door, a single fold-away bed, a sink and small toilet. The roomette's floor space was barely larger than the space taken up by the bed, but it allowed the traveler to ride in luxury compared to the multilevel semiprivate berths of old. The higher clearances in North America enabled a major advancement in passenger car design, bi-level (double-decker) commuter coaches that could hold more passengers. These cars started to become common in the United States in the 1960s, and were adopted by Amtrak for the Superliner design as well as by many other railroads and manufacturers. By the year 2000 double-deckers rivaled single level cars in use around the world. While intercity passenger rail travel declined in America, ridership continued to increase in other parts of the world. With the increase came an increased use of newer technology on existing and new equipment. The Spanish company Talgo began experimenting in the 1940s with technology that would enable the axles to steer into a curve, allowing the train to move around the curve at a higher speed. The steering axles evolved into mechanisms that would also tilt the passenger car as it entered a curve to counter the centrifugal force experienced by the train, further increasing speeds on existing track.[2] Today, Talgo trains are used in many places in Europe and they have also found a home in North America on some short and medium distance routes such as Eugene, Oregon, to Vancouver, British Columbia.
