A photography tip: Carrying multiple DSLR

Hi

I wanted to try something different today, and try to write a short photography tip.

NOTE! I am in no way sponsored by any of the brands that I mention here, but I give credit where credit is due.

For those of you who have followed my blog, you know that I love to travel, and that I enjoy the art of photography. This have taken me to many places off the beaten track . If we are talking about mountains of Norway, or the Amazonian jungle, I have been there taking some photos, and in those conditions I think it is one major issue regarding the usage of your trused DSLR`s. That is changing lenses when you are in a hurry , or you are in places that or not all that easy or in some way troublesome  to switch lenses. My solution is  that I have started to use is the Blackrapid R double strap.

You can see a  video  from Blackrapid here:

I have been using the original R-stap for a long time, and I enjoy the way to carry my camera, differing from strap that comes standard with the camera.

I usually go with the following setup of my cameras:  one for wide-angle shots, and the other either for macro or for zoom shots. In this way I can switch cameras without the need for exchanging the lenses. Another nice feature of the straps is that it allows for you to have your arms free when you are not taking shots, and you can rest a little bit. I find this very practical when I am in envirements where I anticipate that I will be needing different lenses for taking my shots.
