@Pippigurl: Doesn't that safety strap 'wind up' if the camera rotates? I like the idea of a safety device, but that sounds like a faff.
Dumb question here, off-topic, but while we're talking Black Rapid - I picked up a Curve over the holidays. Love it so far. I've found one situation that it doesn't protect very well against, so I'm trying to think up ideas for how to handle this:It's at my hip, maybe behind me a little bit. I bend over or down say to pull something out of the trunk of my car. The camera slides around. My attempts to tuck my elbow in and back come too late, and the whole thing swings forward in a suicide dive for my car's bumper. So far, I've managed to stand up quickly enough and prevent any damage.Previous straps I've had were shorter and/or tighter stretchy things that required a bit more friction for things to move around to the front when I'm bending over like that, so it happened less often.Just curious if people have had this too and especially if they've solved it. Thanks in advance. I'm sure it's just a behavioral thing I need to burn into habit.p.s. mine has the screw in lock for the carabiner - seems rock solid.
I then had several occasions when I noticed the sleeve that screws over the hinged clip- stopping it from opening- had unscrewed itself, making it possible for the clip to open.
@Photobug - if i'm not mistaken those are one of OP/TECHs clips. I use a whole bunch of those.OP/TECH USA System Connector Uni-Loop (I believe these are it above)OP/TECH USA Utility Loop ConnectorOP/TECH USA Mini QD Loops - 1.5mmOP/TECH USA System Connector Adapt-ItsI use all of these for various purposes. They have just about every option available that you would want.
