........ and also because I do use tripod a lot and it would mean I have to unscrew the camera several times a day.

I shoot mostly from a tripod and used a BR RS-5 for about 5 years. No need to remove the strap to use the tripod. . . .

I was referring to BR that connects to tripod mount, not to side strap. If I would use BR tripod mount strap it would be in a way when I want to connect my camera in Landscape orientation. As a landscape photographer I use that I use that the most.

My earlier post was only trying to point out of previously reported problems about BR components failing. I have straps from several brands and not a fan where tripod mount is used. I was just letting OP and others know to do due diligence and check previously reported incidents before making a decision. I've had several near fall incidents with my camera over the years and careful about what holds my $5000+ in gear.


I want to guest blog on your Landscape / Travel photography blog, PM for details

That photo is of a BR RS-5 attached to the camera lug of a Kirk L bracket using an Op Tech Utility Loop. My point was you can use a BR strap without being forced to use the tripod mount. The only issue I had with my BR strap was with their first gen caribiner clip, which I replaced. Granted I have since moved to the Luma Cinch which I find to be much better, but that's not really pertinent.

Woops. I see that now.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

With the safety system in place, it looks weird. Like you have something on your tripod mount, then a protector device on both strap holes, doesnt look clean.

In the case of the 70D you are correct; the BR is not my primary strap. If it was I would not set it up that way. I would probably use a Uni-Loop off the battery grip lug similar to how my SL1 is set up.
