on my film bodies, the strap attachment points are lugs with triangle split rings in them. the strap goes through the split ring and all of the movement is between the two pieces of metal...

these stamped steel "loops" allow for the straps to slide too much and after a little over a year, the strap ends are getting bunched and (im certain) abraded. other than replacing the strap on some sort of interval to prevent failure, is there anything someone has come up with for a better attachment point? being slotted (vs a round hole) and oriented horizontally dont really lend themselves to putting in a small split ring...

really the biggest nit i have with the EOS cameras...

I never had that experience with my straps on any of my EOS cameras. The straps don't slide, or bunch up. or abrade. What straps are you using?

It looks like a standard Canon strap. Don't know how you managed to abrade the strap like that. Its the first time I've ever seen anything like that. I have a Canon strap on my somewhat heavy 7D Mark II which I have been using almost every day for almost 3 years and have no wear like that at all. Mine looks almost like new. Maybe its the way you're carrying the camera, or perhaps where, and it's bouncing against the edge of the strap a lot? In any case, its time for a new strap.

I had to replace the handle on my daughter's clarinet case the other day and she wanted a braided Paracord deal so I YouTube'd how to do the "standard" cobra weave...

It was pretty easy so I did some extensions for the body, to save wearing through the thin straps. I weaved them tight so they don't slip and slide and get bunched up and abraded from the slotted attachment points...

I did them in two color to match Canon's.

Pretty nice job. I just don’t understand what is happening to your oem straps.

I used a combination of Op Tech Adapt-Its System Connectors, and Op Tech Utility Loop Connectors to attach to my camera body. Then for my camera neck strap, I attached Black Metal Swivel Snap Hooks. This way, I can attach or detach the camera neck strap to my Canon body, depending on if I want to use the neck strap or camera sling. It gives me options on how I want to carry my camera. It is a little more expensive, but it works for me.

That looks like a different camera body than the one you showed us in post #11.

That one had a different type of attachment point - where the metal loop was protruding from the body, while this one here in post #18 has the metal loop recessed from the surface of the outer body shell.


.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

On the right side of the 5D3 and 4 (this is the 4) is recessed and the on the left side of both of these is protruding..

The original photo is my 5D3 and these are of the 5D4...
