    DSLR sling strap recommendations?

    Can anyone recommend a good sling strap? I was looking at the optech ultility sling but it doesn't seem to allow vertical shooting.
    Thanks.

    Look at the Black Rapid range of R-Straps.

    I use a sun sniper strap. Very similar to the Black Rapid but it has metal running through the centre of it making it harder to cut.

    I recommend Blackrapid as well. I've recently purchased the BRAD attachment for the strap as well, because I found that the BR strap kep on sliding off my shoulder when I was leaning over or when i bent over to pickup and carry my little ones.
    Regards,
    Phil

    The Black Rapid sports strap also has a little attachment to go under the arm to stop the strap sliding off anywhere and is about the most padded in the range in case you intend on carrying something heavy around all day!
