Excerpt: Great strap to use on heavier cameras. I upgraded from the stock strap which was very taxing on my nec to this very comfortable and well made strap. I use a Nikon D600 adn with the 70-200mm 1.8 lens this strap comfortably distributes the weight and torque of the long heavy lens.
Excerpt: I am a self-admitted Tamrac fan boy and own several of their bags/backpacks. This strap is used on a Canon 7D with a EF 70-300L lens. The shoulder piece is wide neoprene backed by tough nylon. It acts as a shock absorber so the weight of the camera plus lens feels light on the back of the neck.
Excerpt: The Tamrac N5057 Boomerang strap is one of the best camera gear purchases I have made. It allows me to carry my Canon 7D with 70-300L lens for hours comfortably around my neck. The neoprene is backed with a narrower nylon strap for security.
Excerpt: Picked this up to go with a new D300 - wanted something that helped a little with the weight. I was pleasantly surprised by the way the shock absorbing design made the camera feel lighter. Would like to be able to shorten it up another inch or two but otherwise a great product.
Excerpt: Elastic give is helpful for comfort even with heavy camera, yet firm enough to avoid bouncing. Only improvement necessary is to add non-slip surface on underside of strap so it can be more stable when worn on outside shoulder.
Excerpt: I shoot in the mountains frequently; mountain biking, landscapes, skiing, etc. Being able to switch from my Boomerang strap to the backpack straps with the same camera or switch between cameras with the quick-release buckles is a life-saver!
