just got my cinch strap with membrane. so now i can attach my arca swiss plate on the bottom and use the strap.

question is, i have the canon hand strap on there already. i thought about putting the cinch on the other side of the 5D2 where the red arrows are pointed. see attached.

but no matter how i do it.. i am not able to put the camera across (hanging from left shoulder) so i can access the 5D with my right hand.

any other way to do it?

I have a L-bracket on my 5D3 and am be able to attach (see from the above picture):
1) Hand strap on the right (one attach on the right and other to the right bottom of the L-bracket)
2) Cinch on the left (one to the upper left and one on the bottom right where is the handstrap attached to the L-bracket/ right bottom)
3) I can still use a tripod to connect to the L-bracket.

don't get me wrong.. i can attach it too.. but once attached that way, i noticed i can only put the strap on my right shoulder and hanging the camera on my left side and still have the cinch function. i can't get the camera to hang on my right side so i have quick access with my right hand on to the handstrap ready to shoot.

Are you right-or left handed? If you can't or don't want to hang your camera on your right side then... I am thinking about most cameras with grips (or pro bodies) are designed to use with right hand unless you have a special order for left-handed one. Please correct me if I am wrong.

You might have it upside down/backwards. I've done before because I made a DIY quick disconnect system for my Cinch and I've reversed the ends. I'll bet if you turn it around, you'll be fine.

Apparently the manufacturer of the Cinch is working on a QR...timing is questionable as they even said they're not in a hurry to do something that isn't perfect.

EOS,

What i-G12 said is true. Luma Labs is only a few weeks away (or sooner) from releasing their own quick disconnect system that will easily retrofit to the Cinch.

I use the Optech utility loops (www.amazon.com/OP-TECH-USA-1301222-Connectors/dp/B000IN3R​UE/ (external link)) on the upper connection of my 60D and use these (www.amazon.com/Brass-Fast-Eye-Snap-Hook/dp/B0009TMUOQ/ (external link)) on both ends of the Cinch. I got mine at a local hardware store. You can also find them at some marine supply stores. They are a bit clunky but they are smooth and don't mark up the camera body. I'm sure I'll replace them with the ones Luma Labs has designed when they are released.

ah.. that's a nice one kim. i guess i'll wait for the quick release when it comes out. after looking over and over again at their video on their site, looks like i have them in the right direction. i guess it's just the positioning of the membrane that's causing the issue.
