Does the capture system work with L plates?

The Capture Clip requires its own plate be mounted on the camera in order to function, but they offer those plates in AS and RS2 formats. I'd imagine you'd need a specialty built L bracket, which they don't have in the arsenal, yet; although it wouldn't surprise me if they have one in the works.

Depending on the bracket you already have, you *could* screw the CC plate onto the bottom of the L bracket, but that seems awful clunky to me. In the case of those brackets, I'd hold off and see if they put one out sometime over the next year.

I've been reserching a very simaler topic, I wanted a way to carry a camera bag with my backpacking/hiking pack, what I am getting will be the ThinkTank DH 40 Holster. It can mount either to your belt or your backpack belt (if it has one) there is also a shoulder strap and a mounting strap to connect it to your backpack shoulder straps, keeping the bag right in front of you. There are different sizes depending on wheter you are using a gripped or pro size camera body and it expands for lens lenth.

Thinking about getting one of those also, but mostly to use when at places like Disneyland and other family parks.

How about the Joby Ultrafit Sling Strap? (external link)

I used it with no problem with a backpack this past weekend when I went to San Diego Safari Park. I use a Incase DSLR Pro Backpack. It adjust from the front, so the backpack should not have much impact. You can also purchase it from some Best Buy if you don't want to travel too far.

JDeluis,
Nice looking strap system, think I'm going to go with one of the strap system that come with a base plate unit. With all the suggestion given so far I have been spending a lot a time watching video reviews am the ones with a base plate are winning me over so far.

This thread is very timely. I'm also in the market for a new sling strap - I'm currently using a single-point rifle sling that was given to me. I didn't like it as a rifle sling, but do as a camera sling. However, the previous comment about the mount being able to slide along the strap (like on the Black Rapid) makes sense, as I'm always "dragging" my current strap to get the camera up.

I use it in conjunction with a waist bag (Lowepro Toploader Zoom 50 AW), which works well for me while out hiking/ scrambling. Extra gear (lenses, filters, etc.) live in my Camelbak.

ETA: Whatever I end up replacing my current system with will need to work with an L-plate.

you can build your own sling strap for <$20

I made a pretty handy one by getting a luggage strap from a luggage store, a large keyring and a quarter inch ring bolt from the hardware store. Love it.

I'll try to remember to post pics of mine when I get home.

honestly, there's no good reason to spend $50-100 for a branded strap "system" when you can build one to your specifications for significantly cheaper.

and loving it.

Looks like I'm going for one of the better build name brand straps. Started off looking at a cheap Best Buy sling strap that would also take a hand strap at the same time. Now, after looking at all the links posted for straps, I'm going for one of the good ones.

Thanks for the tips,
Craig

Calicajun, this is a link to the Optech sling. At the bottom of the page there is a product video. It is very good in explaining this system/sling. Worth a look, I think.

I use a sling strap (carryspeed) and a backpack all the time when hiking. Works very well. Many times I will leave the sling strap on under the back pack, even when I don't have the camera attached to the sling strap. Very convenient.
