Camera Straps & BlackRapid RS-7 Curve | Photo Talk

Camera Straps & BlackRapid RS-7 Curve
   Lets discuss camera straps on todays Photo Talk and go over some of the traditional and why some of the new more modern shoulder style straps like the BlackRapid RS-7 Curve may be a better option. So if your neck is hurting for that strap that came with your camera, then you do not want to miss this video.


About this topic:

   It pains me to see someone lugging a heavy DSLR camera around on their neck with those factory supplied camera straps. Those straps were great on smaller cameras like my trusty Canon G12 were they did not weigh that much. I remember the first time I brought a DSLR on vacation with me, even though it was a smaller Rebel series at the time. By the end of each day I was simply hurting in my upper back and neck. Plus the material made in those neck straps are simply more for looks then comfort. Before my next trip I had purchased the Black Rapid RS-4[1] and have never looked back. Even with a heavy camera and large telephoto lens, I could go all day without any back or neck pain. So in this video I wanted to discuss them and also show the BlackRapid RS-7[2] Curve camera strap that I just got in and give you my initial opinions of it.

Learn How To Setup Identity Plate & Watermarks In Lightroom 5 | Video Tutorial

Branding is important for business growth and this tutorial will help you start setting up Adobe Lightroom 5's identity plate, plus step you through adding watermarks with in Lightroom's built in watermark tools to display your branding and copyrights on your images.


About this tutorial:

   This is another tutorial were I am focusing on the ins and outs of Adobe Lightroom. So many tutorials show photographers how to work in the develop module, but few show anything else about Lightroom. So I am going through every detail of Lightroom and teaching about every detail of the program. In this video tutorial I focus on two things, the Identity Plate and Watermarks. Now I have combined these for two reasons, one they are both about branding and two the ID plate tutorial would be ridiculously short. But since they are simple, I am at least able to provide solid setup detail for anyone needing to use these features in Lightroom 5.

Many photographers are taking to the skies with quad copters and other various unmanned aircraft to get amazing views for both video and still photos. But looks like this could come to an end as the US pushes to put strict limits and force registration of these air craft.
