I just read in another thread that the RS-7 has a part that pinch the back of your arm, and I don't like hand strap because my set up is pretty heavy with the 70-200L II.

My RS-7 has never pinched the back of my arm. I've carried a pretty broad variety of lens combinations all over the place (I've spent 4 of the last 5 weeks traveling all over the world), and it has been consistently awesome.

I've set mine up so I can keep using my L-bracket on my body. Also allows me to attach it to the Arca plate on the foot of my 80-200 as well.

Crumpler industry disgrace ;)

+1 for me.

Too bad CPS went to the basic OP/Tech strap so I have a few of those. And one Industry Disgrace.

Hi - can you tell me where you got the extra quick connect attachment you have on your L- Bracket and R-Strap? And, why you are using it.

Thanks

with a massive lens like the 70-200, I'de look at the carryspeed pro. It looks like it was designed for it. Maybe the cotton carrier system for something that heavy, because it'll dangle with the black rapid and it's clones.

I have the optech/POTN strap and it slides off my shoulders. I can't keep it on my shoulder to save my life. I'm now looking at the Upstrap. It seems to be small in overall size, not supposed to slip, made in America....etc. im a bigger guy and I don't like the across the chest slings. I like a strap to just sit no one shoulder. The optech does not do it for me. I do have their wrist strap, though, and it works well.

Lke m635, I have a Kirk quick clamp to have quick connect to keep my l plates and lens foot on.

Luma Labs Cinch.

I have been using Black Rapid strap for years and found out the Luma Labs Cinch more safer than BR (two connectors instead of one) and do not like the BR metal hook damaged the L-bracket.

Switching to Spider Holsters literally changed my life. If for some reason I am not using a Spider holster, I will grab a black rapid.

Your right, I think I'm going to get the Luma Labs - Cinch strap, it looks comfortable. I will order it right now lmao... I just backed out on the RS-Sports 2. Thank you all for the comments :)

You are hooking how many thousands of dollars worth of stuff to the strap? And you are worried about $70? Just sayin. It's hand made in the US, so yeah you pay a bit more for it.

The pulling thing is what makes it sweet. Pull it and your camera is up, grip out lens down, right in the small of your back and it's locked there, you can run, lean over to pick up a kid (frequent in my case), etc, all with the camera secure and out of the way. Let it out and the camera is loose down by your hip and ready to go. It is very comfortable, I barely even know the camera is there.

The strap that comes with the camera. I like the tight hug they give you rather than some bouncy feel that generally comes with an accident waiting to happen with a quick release option third party 'comfort straps' come with.

"Oops," would be the last word to come out of my mouth if some buckle unbuckled itself and landed one of my bodies on the ground

The quick connect looks like the RRS. The benefit in that setup is that if you have RRS/Kick/Arca style plates on all your bodies and lenses, then you can quickly attach any of them to your shoulder strap. I have the same setup except I use a Kirk quick release.

Just to be clear, I'm curious about the small hard plastic quick disconnect tab, not the RSS or ball mount top that the user is connecting to the tripod plate - just the extra cord disconnect and why the extra connection. Is it for safety reasons on the R-strap?

Looks like could be this.

I can't speak for the person who posted the pictures, but I would assume it's just a backup in case the QR ever became loose.
