huh... thanks hornrocker for resurrecting this thread! I was looking for a similar solution and then kind of just forgot about it (using my stock 6D strap). I've gone ahead and ordered one as well.

I'd be curious to know if anyone here has one and has reviewed it?

Well, I received mine this weekend! Quick processing/shipping!

So far so good! This thing seems perfect - although I've only used it a tiny bit :)

I'm really liking that I can now use my BlackRapid strap and simply remove it to connect to my mefoto globetrotter tripod. This was the solution I was looking for!

I'll post an update if anything comes up, but I'm pretty impressed so far!

It's been wonderful, Mendal! Thanks again!

No complaints, except maybe... I didn't find this solution earlier! ;)

I do apologize for that I am working to source some international vendors. Hopefully in the not so distant future we will be able to have distributors/retailers that will carry the Fusion Plate more locally. Thank you for your support!

I know this thread is several years old, but I bought one of these a month or so ago. Rereading this thread, I see the price has come down some (-$60). Still, as this is a hobby for me I had a hard time paying that much, but over time of messing around with the rigged setup I had been using I decided to just go for it. Turns out to be the perfect solution for me. The fact that I have to take the strap off before putting the camera on the tripod isn't an issue for me. My strap comes off easily and usually if I'm on a tripod I'm outside and I don't want the strap on there catching wind and moving the camera anyways. The plate looks to be well made and I'm feeling pretty confident in the stainless steel loop. So my summary is: great product, very happy so far, priced maybe more then I would of liked, but I have yet to meet anyone who said photography was cheap!
