I have a manfrotto 190xprob tripod which I bought a couple of months ago and so far i've always carried it attached to my kata backpack. Today I decided to hook up the Propose Tripod carrying strap I got with it and go out like that, since I won't need to change lens'.

The problem is that the tripod swings about wildly as there is only a hook near the head and nothing on any of the legs. Is there a better way to slug a tripod around on ones shoulder/back?

What does your tripod carrying strap look like? Do you have a link to see it? My Manfrotto tripod has a handle/strap attached to the bottom of the center column and it connects just underneath the tripod head. I usually hold it by the handle and walk or I connect my camera to the tripod and rest the whole thing over my shoulder with the legs extended out half way.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

Saint,
my tripod has a spot just under the head to attach a clip but there's nothing under the center column. I looked online but couldn't find the same or similar strap so took a picture of it laying on the floor.

I just use an old Canon camera strap for my 055XPROB. It only has a loop near the head, too. What I did with the other end was loop around the base (of the top section) of one of the legs, and put a bulky cable tie around it to help stop it from sliding up or down the leg.

With this setup to carry it I make sure that the leg it's hanging from is at the bottom and the strap goes between another leg and the centre column, this way the leg doesn't open up when carrying. Works well enough.

This is how the tripod strap is supposed to be used:

I have one of these attached to the loop at the top of my tripod and it's always attached. http://www.upstrap-pro.com …ROD&Product_Cod​e=SLR-QR-E (external link)

The strap has the matching quick release on one end and a ball bungie attached to the other. I can just wrap the ball bungie around all three legs at the base and it's quick and easy to attach and remove.

QUOTED IMAGE

I have this Manfrotto strap for my big beast Bogen 3036 tripod, and I use an OpTech Super Classic strap with binocular ends (two loops, no QR) for my Gitzo. Rather than put the lower loop around all three legs, I put the lower loop on one leg only, thus dispensing with the need to unstrap three legs to open the tripod. When the legs are closed, I have the loop pull upward on the lowest leg and between the other legs, which causes the strap to keep the leg closed.

I took some quick snaps of what I use. So far it is working for me. I bought an OpTech Sling Strap and didn't like using it as a sling so I converted it to a tripod strap instead. I prefer carrying it with the strap even though my messenger bag has a tripod holder.

Yes. I know these pictures are blurry. It's a quick snapshot.

I didn't understand that one is supposed to make a loop with the bottom part. Now it makes sense to me.
