i have my crumpler industry disgrace on the camera at all times, but i would love to have a faster way of temporarily removing it than undoing the straps. ideally, the straps would connect to one side of some sort of quick release connector, and the other side of the connector would attach to the body loops.... ive heard of adapt-its, but cannot find anything on google. would adapt-its do what i am looking for, and if not, is there anyting like it?

edit: found adaptits, but thats not what i had in mind - it looks like they would slip out of the camera loops if unattached.

These are great on my 7D! I have 2 straps with swivel snaps... one plastic and one metal. The adapt It provides for quick and safe connection while protecting the camera. http://www.amazon.com …TF8&qid=1327712​501&sr=1-1 (external link)
Normally I'm using only a hand strap but I can easily add the neck strap while maintaining the hand strap with the adapt Its.
It's a good one for me!

yeah!
thanks.

but would the loops be strong enough to support a 50D with a 24-105 on it?

They absolutely don't. Now getting them on can be a bit of a pain. Soak in hot water for a while.

Those things are strong. One can easily hold a gripped 5D + 100-400 + 580EXII. The only thing to watch out for is abrasion on the paracord portion of it. If they ever get worn looking, replace them.

Absolutely not a problem.

Our old Loop Gen I used a similar system (paracord sewn into some webbing, OpTech uses leather). The lowest we could ever get one to fail on a static test was 200lbs. OpTech units are roughly the same strength (we both use/used Duraflex buckles, the best in the business!)
