The best to know the product is to let it speaks for itself. It is an alternative strap for those who do not want to remind the rest of the world what camera brand and type you carry on the shoulder. Like Canon and Nikon users, you probably end up carry a moving advertisement for them. I like the idea of being a bit humble.
Indigo Marble offers you two easy fasteners (L-plate and D-ring) in the packing. They are both made of metal. So that is why the strap is heavier than I thought. The main part of the strap is made of neoprene and the width of it provides comfort in my shoulder. This is a clever design. If the fasteners, especially the L plate featured in the above image can be lighter, then I have no hesitation to rank it 9.5 out of 10. Nowadays you can’t find a strap is as light as a feather but as durable as steel. But one thing I am certain that the neoprene stays quite firmly on your shoulder.
Indigo Marble is a company known little to us. The only information you get is probably from Amazon. Their official website directs the purchasing or ordering to Amazon. There is no other detail on it except some images of the product. There is an email button at the bottom of the web page. When you click on it, it does not open an online form. Instead your default email app will be triggered and run. Perhaps you will find the strap skeptical if it is not advertised on Amazon.
Of course the best way is not judging by its the name, but by judging the product itself. Carrying a camera all day is a true burden if you cannot find a suitable strap. Indigo Marble is not the first who has designed the strap this way. You may find others similar in design such as Blackrapid. I have got one of its straps called Sport (currently priced at $73.95).
But one thing you can’t go wrong about Indigo Marble camera strap is the price. I have paid US$45 including shipping and handling from Amazon. While the strap was on its way, Indigo Marble has already sent me email an twice asking about my feedback. The ebook about using it was downloaded at the time when I ordered the strap. It explains everything about the camera strap and its uses. I don’t think I have seen a product manual of a camera strap like this. Truly I appreciate the company considers this so seriously.
So the next thing I will probably do is to carry it on my shoulder, spend a day out, to see how it works.
