OP/TECH USA’s Super Classic Sling™ is a streamlined sling-style strap for mirrorless and SLR cameras using heavy lenses. The cameras may be getting smaller, but the lenses are still packing on the weight. The Super Classic Sling™ offers the best of both worlds—compact design with added reinforcement and support to handle the extra weight.
As many photographers prefer to keep the attachment on the camera as short as possible, OP/TECH USA's Uni-Loop™ Connectors fit the bill perfectly. They secure easily on the camera and glide smoothly up and down the sling for rapid access to the camera. As the Uni-Loop™ Connectors attach to the normal connection area on a camera, there’s no need to give up the tripod mount. This keeps the gear in a more accessible position instead of hanging upside down which can put more torque and pressure on the camera housing and lens mount area. Most cameras will attach with a single Uni-Loop™ connector (rated at over 146 lbs.); however, cameras with a second attachment point on the right side, or cameras with battery grips can use two. An adjustable “stop” lets the photographer configure the position where the camera hangs best. The quick disconnects allow one to change from a sling configuration to a more conventional neck/shoulder strap by simply attaching OP/TECH USA's Extension System Connectors (sold separately). This makes the strap extremely versatile so that it changes along with the photographer’s needs.
The comfortable neoprene pad features a non-skid surface backing which really grips to the shoulder. It can be worn on either the right or left shoulder which increases its versatility over most other slings on the market. The internal control-stretch system combined with a comfort-stretch binding assures a durable strap that offers maximum comfort and support.
The quick adjust feature allows the length to be instantly shortened or lengthened as desired. This is great for hiking through dense brush or navigating large crowds as the camera can be cinched up close to the body for added security. To return the sling to its regular size, all that is needed is to lift the upper connector with a single finger and pull the camera down into shooting position. It's that easy!
Combine the Super Classic Sling™ with other OP/TECH USA products for even more possibilities.
- Create a safety lanyard for your camera on the Super Classic Sling™ with the use of the System Connectors - Extensions (sold separately)
For added peace of mind for those photographers who would normally only have one connection point, you can attach your camera to the sling by two points with the use of an Extension System Connector (sold separately as a set of two). One Extension piece would be attached to the back quick disconnect on the sling and connect over to the Uni-Loop™ attached to the left side of the camera. When you raise your camera to the shooting position, the Extension lanyard will be out of the viewing area.
- While actively moving around with your Super Classic Sling™, secure your camera to your side with the second Uni-Loop Connector™
Attach the second Uni-Loop Connector™ to your belt loop which can then be connected to the second quick disconnect on the Super Classic Sling™. Move freely while hiking, biking or navigating busy streets and keep your camera securely attached at your side.
