A Brief History
BlackRapid was founded by a proper photographer, which is always a really good start. Ron Henry needed a solution for a comfortable, useful strap for shoots that were all day and technically tricky. He decided on the camera sling, which had a revolutionary glide system, to move the camera along the strap quickly and efficiently. Strong and manufactured to an extremely high standard, other photographers soon found it to be the ‘must have’ strap and wouldn’t leave home without it. It’s hard to believe it now, but turning the camera upside down was a step too far for most, but it proved to be absolutely the best way to carry expensive, heavy equipment and became the benchmark for all other specialist straps.
BlackRapid is passionate about photography and creating the best product on the market and puts the customer first, because they are the people who keep the company going.
