Is it possible to buy quick release clips to attach to my existing Canon 7D neckstrap?

The difference between good and bad photographers is: Good photographers don't show their bad photos.

The plastic quick release buckles used by Tamrac and Op-Tech on their straps can be found at http://www.countrybroo​kdesign.com …Molding-p5394331-2-1.html (external link) in packs of 10.

You should be able to use Op/Tech Connectors to go from strap to quick-release connector to camera. As an example, just use a single set of this for each side: http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …em_Connectors_S​et_of.html (external link)

I'd love those quick-releases... if they had some sort of additional redundancy, like the ones with the button push in the center as well as the pinch from the sides to release.

Who was it that made that one, lowerpro? TT? I'd be scare of accidentaly letting my camera off the hook with the simple OP/Tech ones.

I would suggest you look into purchasing a CPS strap for what you're asking for. The CPS straps come with quick releases integrated into them. I think they're made by Op/Tech as well.

I'd personally just prefer to find the actual quick releases themselfs and add them to my neckstrap of choice.

But quick release + safety isn't yelding any useful results.

Crumpler's Singapore Sling camera strap comes with both plastic snap-buckle releases to completely detach the strap and a pair of non-detachable but lockable thumb buckles that allow you to quickly change the length of the strap. Do not have or held one, but see their video HERE (external link).

Well... I've done a few different scenarios with buckles. The first success was to go with a Lowepro Transporter and buy one of these cheap from SellnSend for another body.

My newest version is a modified Industry Disgrace with the parts from the same Speedster strap. I did this before I saw the "singapore Sling" I posted awhile back. Pretty much the same results and love the comfortable straps...

You should be able to find a set of Fastex brand (or equiv) online in a width to match your strap. The brands that have the buckles didn't make them, they bought them from a supplier.

Save yourself a bundle and don't look for the CPS Strap ... it's this same Op/Tech strap for a 1/3 the cost. It has 3/8 webbing to feed through the camera loops instead of the nylon strings, a better securing method. The CPS Straps are the cheapest version that Canon can get at a discount price. I don't understand at all why people want to pay $75-100 for them??

As far as the QR buckles ... you can get little strips of Velcro ties that loop around the two clips on their ends to bundle them for safety. I can't remember what Op/Tech calls them but they do make them for the QR buckles.

Thanks, klr.b! :) Last night I could not remember the name of these straps. I did a few keyword searches on B&H and apparently did not use the correct ones.

I use them and they work.
