Joby UltraFit Sling Strap makes it easier to carry your camera


ultrafit2Photography enthusiasts who love taking their DSLR everywhere can now carry the device a lot more comfortably with the new Joby UltraFit Sling Strap.

The Joby UltraFit Sling Strap is ergonomically designed to go across a user’s chest to distribute the weight of the camera to provide comfortable use over a longer period.

The traditional strap which is worn like a necklace can place strain on a user’s neck and back over an extended time.

Joby’s strap combines premium materials and is designed for a more comfortable fit and yet still gives the photographer quick access to their camera.

The design of the UltraFit Sling Strap is the result of an extensive user research carried among professional photographers and enthusiasts to find out how the strap should move on the body.

The Joby UltraFit Sling Strap is designed for comfort and easy access to your camera

Good spine health, maximum comfort and easy access were the three key findings Joby took out of the research before coming up with the UltraFit Sling Strap.

There is a version designed specifically for men and women.

Each has a pivot ring and foam pad which can shape itself to the shoulder and torso for even weight distribution.

The integrated SpeedCinch system offers added hands-free stability and keeps the camera close to your body.

Then when you’re ready to take your next shot, the system automatically extends the strap length and allows the photographer to quickly bring the camera up to eye level in one fluid motion.

The Joby UltraFit Sling Strap for women

Joby is no stranger to photography and is best known for its flexible GorillaPod tripods.

The Joby UltraFit Sling Strap male and female versions are both priced at $54.95 and will available in stores in late November.
