We were sent this release by the manufacturer of a new camera strap who thought our members might be interested.
I am sending you this e-mail to announce a new camera support system that may interest your members. I attached a Press Release and a Brochure. Feel free to use any information contained in them in your Newsletters or "What’s New" section on your site.
My new product is called the BosStrap Camera Sling System. My company is BosStrap LLC.
The BosStrap System includes two pieces: a BosStrap™ and a BosTail™. The BosTail replaces the manufacturer’s neck strap. Simply attach the BosTail to the left strap lug or eyelet on the camera body. The BosTail typically remains on the camera. The BosStrap includes a nickel plated metal TriggerLoc™ to connect to a nickel plated ring on the BosTail.
Professional photographers tested the BosStrap System for three months in field and studio environments. They unanimously agree that its unique engineering offered the professional photographer benefits that were unavailable with any other system. The BosStrap System was tested with professional camera setups weighing over six pounds when typically equipped with an 80-200 mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
The adjustable BosStrap is worn across your body, placed over your left shoulder and under your right arm as shown in the photos in the attached Press Release and Brochure. You’ll notice that the BosStrap is wider than a typical camera strap. The wide nylon webbing is sufficient to distribute the weight of a camera without relying on a cumbersome and roaming shoulder pad.
In operation, the TriggerLoc slides along the BosStrap (which does not move) allowing you to effortlessly bring your camera up to your eye to quickly compose and capture the shot. When not in use, your camera remains safely and inconspicuously at your hip.
The web site shows the complete product line and provides more information about the BosStrap Camera Sling System. I hope you take a look. www.BosStrap.com
The BosStrap Camera Sling System features include:
- Camera tripod socket always available
- Fail-safe TriggerLoc lets you disconnect camera from the BosStrap in seconds
- No shoulder pad. The 1½” wide strap prevents neck strain and eliminates a cumbersome and roaming shoulder pad
- BosStrap adjust to 64" long
- Uses extremely smooth and strong nylon seatbelt webbing
- Frees both hands
- Adjustable BosTail length from 2" to 4"
- Light weight at less than 5 ounces
- Engineered with a Safety Factor of 10
- Some photographers have used BosStrap to support a battery pack
- BosStraps and BosTails are also sold separately
- Reasonably priced at $39.95

I used a BlackRapid strap on a recent trip and found several areas where this BosStrap sounds better:-wider, more rigid strap that should not twist, no shoulder pad to move around, attaches to camera strap eyelet rather than the tripod socket.
I see he offers volume discounts to clubs; does the club intend to place an order?

Your comment is the first indication that any other members are interested. I use an OP/TECH Pro Loop Strap and haven’t had a need to try one of the sling style straps yet.
