I'm going on a year long backpacking trip soon and was looking in to getting a more comfortable, easier to use camera strap. All I ever heard about through casual reading was black rapid, so that seemed like the best option... but I must admit I am a little nervous having 3,000 worth of gear hanging from one screw in piece(tripod mount connection.) I do not want any quick release straps or clips as I will be in many different countries and different situations and theft and damage is a strong possibility.
A couple questions....
Is it possible to attach some sort of string or a seperate strap from the clip near the tripod screw in piece on the black rapid strap to the normal shoulder strap mount on the camera. This means that if the piece did come unscrewed that the camera would be caught by the tent string/something else and not fall? I am looking to doubly secure the RS4 by tying cord from the left side of the camera LCD screen strap loop to the carabiner area on the RS4? Possible??? Is this possible in any way on the Luma Loop Cinch?
Is there simply a longer version of the Canon strap, without any quick release points? I'm taller and I don't mind my strap so much, but it is a little short to wear diagonal from my neck to under my arm(I'm 6'3)
