Our take on the BlackRapid Elle by Crutchfield's Woody Sherman
A camera strap with a gentle curve
The BlackRapid Elle strap is made for a woman's frame.
The BlackRapid Elle camera strap is designed by women, for women. The secret to the Elle is an elongated, slim shoulder pad with a gentle curve that's designed to accommodate a woman's frame. It's also made to stay put on your left shoulder, keeping your camera close by your right hand for easy access. And the optional "Brad" accessory (available separately) slips underneath your arm to keep the shoulder pad firmly in place when you're moving quickly or climbing. Trick out your Elle strap by adding extra accessory storage with the "Bryce" bag, or make it even more reliable and secure with the Buck modification.
Once you experience the simplicity and elegance of a BlackRapid camera strap, you'll never, ever want to go back to the old neck or shoulder strap your camera came with. BlackRapid camera straps are designed to help your cameras hang in a logical location, upside down and down by your hip. Simply screw the FR-3 FastenR screw/washer hand-tight to your camera's tripod mount hole, then use the included ConnectR carabiner that's attached to your strap as a lever to securely tighten the FastenR. Now you can grab a camera by its gripping surface, glide it up along the strap's surface, and have it ready to shoot in under a second. BlackRapid straps can be worn with backpacks or under a jacket, and the included bumpers quickly slide and snap into place to restrict your camera's movement when you're running, climbing, or otherwise being active.

BlackRapid Elle Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The BlackRapid Elle is a simple sling camera strap that is designed by women for women. The shoulder pad has a special curved design that contours to a woman's shape for a more comfortable fit than other camera straps. The strap is designed to be worn diagonally across the body with the pad on your left shoulder and the camera at your right hip.
Sling Strap: The sling strap concept makes it easy to carry your camera by your side, and quickly bring it up to the shooting position. When not in use, the camera hangs upside down at your hip. A threaded FastenR screws into the camera's tripod socket, and is held secure with a rubber washer. The locking ConnectR on the sling strap clips onto the camera via the FastenR, allowing it to glide up and down the strap. Two adjustable locking bumpers on the strap will limit the range of the camera's gliding motion.
Materials: The Elle's pad is made of Ballistic Nylon on the top, with a 1/4-inch thick polyurethane foam pad with Knitted mesh. The sling strap is 1" wide and the length can be adjusted to nearly 60". The strap includes a zinc alloy ConnectR (CR-2) and a black nickel-coated stainless steel FastenR (FR-3).
