On another thread on this forum, a user wrote to Canon and asked if the Black Rapid system is safe to use with his camera and Canon replied that
To confirm, the tripod mount on the EOS series camera is designed to support the camera when being used on a tripod (optional accessory). It is not designed for the manner in which this neck strap is being attached. In addition to this, the weight with which it can support, is not a documented specification. Therefore using such an accessory would be at your own accord and is not recommended by Canon."
My question is simple:
Has anyone had a problem with their BR failing to hold the camera?
If you have an ebay knockoff of the BR - feel free to comment as well.
