The new JOBY UltraFit Sling Strap provides active photographers with a quick-draw style strap that combines body-conforming ergonomic comfort and hands-free stability.    
Designed for both CSC (compact system camera) and DSLR cameras, the UltraFit Sling Strap is available in separate versions designed specifically for men and women. It’s constructed with JOBY’s exclusive UltraFit Layered- Pad Technology and features an ergonomically placed pivot ring and pressure-relieving foam pad, that allow the strap to conform to the shoulder and torso of the body and distribute the weight of the camera evenly. The camera can be held close to the body with the SpeedCinch system but the strap extends to allow the camera to slide quickly up to the shooting position. Neutral-coloured materials match in with the wearer’s clothing and the strap is light and compacts down to take up very little space.

Both male and female versions will be available in late November at an RRP of AU$54.95. For more information visit:
