8 Ways the Cotton Carrier StrapShot Makes Your Travel and Outdoors Digital Photography More Enjoyable
You’ll like StrapShot first because it’s compatible with any backpack or sling-type bag. It connects to the D-ring of a backpack strap, so the StrapShot never slips, regardless of the environment or shooting conditions. You can also use the StrapShot with any digital camera.
Whether you’re taking a family daytrip to enjoy a favorite activity or entertainment venue or traveling overseas to exotic locations, you’ll be happy you chose to include the Cotton Carrier StrapShot among your gear because it is so comfortable. At just 6 x 3 inches, the StrapShot takes little room in your luggage and supports your camera all day, even a full-size DSLR, so your shoulders and neck remain relaxed and free of any strain.
The Cotton Carrier StrapShot wouldn’t be an excellent product if it wasn’t convenient to use. With your camera resting on your chest or stomach, you’ll be able to grab it with one hand and shoot quickly. No more fumbling for your camera in a backpack or shoulder bag and failing to capture the action you traveled or hiked so far to find. Plus, if you want to free your camera from the StrapShot for certain compositions and shooting situations, then it detaches immediately with Cotton Carrier’s patented Quick Release Locking System.
The people at Cotton Carrier were also very attentive to the need to keep your camera secure. The StrapShot includes extra protection with a safety tether to ensure your camera doesn’t fall from the harness. The StrapShot kit includes a custom tool that allows you to turn the camera hub until it is very tight, so your camera is as secure as possible.
With your camera solidly attached to the StrapShot, your hands are free to ensure your safety when hiking and climbing tough terrain. You’ll also have both hands available to grab and position additional equipment, so the StrapShot is very helpful to the studio photographer.
You’ll benefit fully from the StrapShot’s compatibility, comfort, convenience and security features because it is designed and constructed from high quality, rugged materials. The strap itself is weatherproof 1680 Denier nylon and the camera hub is hard, anodized aluminum.
The Cotton Carrier StrapShot is sure to give you many years of solid performance, especially if you inspect and clean the moving parts in the Lexan camera receptacle and hub. If your StrapShot is your constant companion in the backcountry and during all kinds of weather, then check it for wear and damage regularly…but it’s built to take plenty of tough use.
Wherever your passion for digital photography takes you, you want a comfortable, secure and convenient method to carry and access your camera easily and quickly and that’s exactly what Cotton Carrier’s newest product, StrapShot, delivers.
The StrapShot’s camera hub is also compatible with any quick-release tripod adapter or clamp that has a ¼” thread. Cotton Carrier also offers optional adapter plates for use with Manfrotto, Gitzo and other brands of quick-release tripod.
Your purchase of a Cotton Carrier StrapShot includes a free hand strap for added comfort and security.
Inger Vandyke, famed wildlife photographer and conservationist, commented on the usefulness of the StrapShot when photographing from a boat at sea,
“These are awesome because you can mount a small plate with a tripod screw to your camera (despite what anyone argues, tripods and monopods are USELESS at sea), put the harness on and clip the camera to you, so it stays close to your body. This allows you to use both your hands to stabilise yourself when you are moving about on a rocky boat without having your camera gear swinging from your neck strap and smashing against the nearest hard surface.”
