Hi all im looking for a stap well more like a sling one that goes over the shoulder and attaches via the tripod screw but still want to be able to use a tripod if needed without taking the strap off. Is there such a thing and if there is can anyone recomend a good one. Links prefered.

Thanks in advance

Really Right Stuff's L-plate for non-gripped bodies have a strap lug on them. I've used mine with OpTech's sling. The quick disconnect buckle attaches to the L-plate and doesn't interfere with the tripod clamp.

Here is the L plate on my 5D. This setup has both OpTech Uni-Loops connected to the camera for wearing a long strap over my shoulder. For the sling strap, you'd just connect one Uni-Loop to the L-plate and hang the camera from that.

Thank you Mike. The RRS L plate for my 5d3 is backordered. Your photo showed me exactly what I wanted to know.

Maybe I missed it but what kind of head do you have on your tripod? The RRS L brackets are made for arca swiss type heads.

Not cheap, but that's the set up you're going for.

Try here. If you send them any strap, no matter what it is, they give a 30% discount. I got the FS Pro. The small plate that mounts to the camera has a Arca Swiss plate built in. Love it!

+1. Cinch and membrane connector allows you to use tripod plate with the strap, and the 2-point system is more secure than the BR single-point attachment.
