I was trying the new camera out in the panning mode. I really didn't want to start changing the exposer. Just a little lazy I guess. :-P

I like the Peak Design. I replaced a Black Rapids that I used for years because I never liked how the camera flopped around at my hip.

To put a bow on this, I wound up sending it back to Amazon. Based on what I saw and what I've seen elsewhere, you're all probably right that it was probably just dust - it certainly looked like what's dust on other cameras. However, when I inspected the sensor I couldn't see anything, and I didn't love the thing enough to deal with trying to clean it or send it for service after having it for a whole week, and the dust appearing in a few days when the lens never came off. It's a nice camera, but I missed the ergonomics of my 5D3, and it seemed to be stuck with a neither-fish-nor-fowl issue: it was small enough that my fingers had to curl a little too tightly to hit the controls, but not small enough to be much easier to pack and carry around all day. For travel (especially Italy in June and HK again sometime next year) I'll go with an SL2 or M50, and for Alohaman back on the Big Island I will be checking bags and taking my 5D3 (unless it gets swapped for a 5D4 in the meantime, because that sensor was nice).

It did take some nice images while I had it.

Anyone using a good strap they like with the weight of the R?
I need to ditch this Canon billboard.

Have a look

The customer reviews for that strap seem more useful than many other sets of reviews I've read before.

One noted a need for Loctite, and that implies the manufacturer may not have gleaned the kind of product testing and maturity found in straps like Holdfast

I found the folding ballhead to be interesting, but the page didn't seem to clarify exactly how to use it. Many reviews referred to instructions either being missing or in Japanese if they were included.

I finally caught a decent sunrise in the mountains with the EOS R

I cant imagine what would need Loctite. Nothing on my strap comes unthreaded on it's own.

I just put together an XL Optech sling. But substituted their camera attachment system for the promedia gear setup.

Works perfect comfortable adjustable and easy attach and detach to my Joby tripod. I just snapped the two optech clips together to use as a stop. All I need is a tether.

If we follow the link he posted and read the review with the photo of the ball attachment off showing threads, the word "imagine" may vacate. Working parts in one person's gear have zero influence on the report of the same part malfunctioning elsewhere. It reminds me of recalls with autos. So it sounds like one guy got loose threads. And it's good he pointed it out. If $4000 worth of body and lens dangling on it depends on the part, it may be best to consider his suggestion to try some loctite.

Not a Canon EOS R owner yet, but I'm seriously thinking about getting one. Will my old 430EX flashes (the original 430EX) work with the R?
