Seattle, WA—BlackRapid, creators of the “Original Camera Sling” camera strap system, released three new products: the Yeti and Yeti Slim camera straps and the FastenR Stealth.
The Yeti is a new solution for carrying two camera bodies with mobility due to its sleek single shoulder design and multiple configurations. The single shoulder pad has two camera straps; one slings across the torso and the other straight down from the shoulder. For additional stability, the Yeti includes a cross-body stabilizer that fits across the photographer’s chest, to hold the system tight against the body. The photographer can also detach the secondary strap and use the Yeti as a single strap with an underarm stabilizer, for functionality like BlackRapid’s Sport straps with the integrated BRAD.
The Yeti Slim features all of the same options as the Yeti with a more slender shoulder pad for people with smaller builds.
“At BlackRapid, we’re committed to providing products for customers with a variety of different shooting needs,” said Ron Henry, Founder of BlackRapid.
The FastenR Stealth is the next generation of BlackRapid’s Fastener FR-3 component. Designed for the avid video shooter, the FastenR Stealth’s black vinyl covering over a solid stainless steel core dampens any noise the hardware might create while shooting. Like the third generation BlackRapid FastenR FR-3 before it, the Stealth fits on all BlackRapid R-straps to carry a camera and lens. blackrapid.com
