I have seen this sling strap sold by Adorama but they don't send to Portugal. Does anyone know where I could buy one from Europe?
It seems perfect for what I need.

Why don't you contact Joby direct?
I am sure they can tell you where in Europe you can source one of these.
Took a look And unless ive missed something, Obvously ignoring the advertising blurb, what is the difference between this and the the Black rapid. I realise that Ladies are shaped different but to me it looks just like any strap.
That's the problem Kev Ladies are shaped different......LOL.
I know that but the joby looks just like a strap, no more shaping of it than the rapid so is the fact its aimed at women a bit of advertising blurb
What we need is a lady model to check out Kev's theory. Are you volunteering Harriet?
In your dreams.......... About 30 years ago maybe.
Kev may have something there, I'll check it out.
I'm dreaming, I'm dreaming.
Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm! Joby straps!
Oh dear, I must be getting old!
LOL. That's my problem unfortunately.
All i can see between the joby mens and ladies version is a very slight curve, when I check The black Rapid I see very little difference, My exsperience tells me companys try to find a uneque selling point and in alot of cases the claims are rubbish which I have no proof here just visual observation, I use a black rapid copy from ebay. very reasonable and easy to get hold of.
what would consern me is no other company inc the top names seem to cater for the lady and common sense tells me that lowepro ect would jump on this if for one minute was beneficial to make another type of strap
Here you go. Two distributors in Gibraltar and one in Spain: http://joby.com/wheretobuy/intldistributors
That's assuming you didn't get there first.
I looked on ebay and I have bought, just now, a black rapid and from the little video I saw it seems just what the doctor ordered.
Thanks for all the help. They are not cheap either but if they do what the testimonials say I will be fine.
I swear by mine, is nice sometimes to just leave your camera by your side and not be holding it all the time when talking ect knowing its secure, Also have a wrist grip and use that to brace the camera when walking letting the rapid take the weight, Couldent use any other now, And does not cut into the neck as traditional straps do.
Sounds good to me Kev. I will know for sure when it arrives, usually about a week. I got it from Cardiff photographers, I have bought things online from them before.
Harriet, I've got the black rapid ladies strap and there is quite a difference when you are wearing it, the shape really works well round our lady bumps
