How is it call, or who sells the neck strap that goes around your neck and just plugs in on the camera tripod mount?!

Bert Stephani uses it on his MOTIVATIONAL LIGHT DVD which I just got!

Black Rapid R-Strap


Some cameras, some lenses, plenty of gaffer's tape and beer.

Try Luma Loop - http://www.luma-labs.com/products/loop (external link)
Op/Tech - http://optechusa.com/u​tility-strap.html (external link)

I have both - and they both are great - zero problems. The best bang for the buck is the Op/Tech rig. You bup the regular neck strap and then the utility strap. Cheaper than either the Luma Loop or BR.

I looked at the BR and decided that the reports of falilure were too often and I didn't like the metal connectors.

The connector that mounts to the bottom of the camera or the clip that connects to it?

Judging from Optech's site, it appears that theirs attaches to the normal neckstrap loop rather than the tripod hole. I don't know about anyone else, but that would be a fail for me - I HATE having stuff hanging down like that. The BR appealed to me (still haven't bought one yet) because attaching to the tripod thread gets it nicely out of the way.

Seems like you could still buy one of the BlackRapid mounting points and connect the OpTech strap to it.

Yeah, or use the D-ring on your RC2 plate or whatever, for that matter.

Another alternative is the Custom SLR C-Loop which uses your existing camera strap and attaches to the tripod mount of your camera. A good alternative if you already have a strap you like using.

Its on Kickstarter currently: http://kck.st/crzgWT (external link)

I have OpTech's sling and have the lanyard attached to the strap lug of my L plate. Works great and never gets in my way.

Hmm, that black rapid looks nice, but I always have my tripod plates screwed to the camera and lens mounts :/

Highly not recommended
It will hold light gear, and probably will for a long time
once you start putting anything heavy, and that swings around a little, the stress will split the ring out of the screw...
stick the business end of a pair of needle nose pliers in that ring, and then spread the pliers out - you'll see it stretches rather easily...

You can purchase a loop connector that screws into the camera or tripod mount from Luma Loop - the strap comes with one or you can purchase one from any of the others like BR or the Sun Sniper?? (forgot the name).

I use the Luma Loop connector with the Op/Tech strap and Luma Loop strap. Most often I use a split ring on my camera lug. I have had zero problems and the loops on both the Op/Tech and Luma Loop don't exert as much pressure as the BR attachments the apparently loosen the connectors that too many people complain about. There is also not a metal problem to content with - scratching and so forth.

The Op/Tech strap uses the neck pad from the normal Op/Tech neck strap with the Utility Strap. The setup hangs just like the BR or the Luma Loop - go to the web site and check it out. For the price of a Luma Loop, BR or other maker you end up with a great neck strap and a shoulder strap for less money. Alameda
