hey everyone

i currently have a black rapid on a Fastnr 3 (the single piece, not the newer flat piece with the D ring). i also have a Peak Design hand strap, with the anchor tied to the Fastnr

this setup is fine and dandy for 99% of my shots, however i am now in the market for a travel tripod, so i will have a need to use some sort of plate (or even when i want to use a concrete barrier or the such for a stable surface)

from what i've seen, there arent many universal options that let me have a tripod plate, strap mount, and an eyelet for the peak design anchor

those using a similar setup, how have you gone about this?

the tripod i plan to get will be seldom used (travel only), and will be something like the manfrotto BeFree or similar. not sure which, not sure what type of head.

what would be the simplest and most effective solution?

can an L plate be attached using a Fastenr from BR, and would it be flush with the bottom of the bracket?

thanks!

I've used a Camdapter Pro strap with an Arca adapter for years (on it's third camera now, two different brands). I think it may fit the bill, but you'll want to make sure you've got your tripod/head chosen first to get the right adapter.

FWIW, When it came time to buy a new sling strap, my first consideration was making sure it worked with the Camdapter cause I wasn't going to give it up.

Optech straps are available with different ends. I use the 'binocular strap' end to form a loop which goes around the column and one of the legs.

By putting the strap on one leg, and thru the other two, it effectively pulls the leg close while on your shoulder, without impeding opening the legs to set up the tripod.

thanks Wilt, i think thats different than what i am looking for.
im trying to find the best way to have my cake and eat it too - have a BR strap mounted in a way that still lets me use a tripod, or at the least, be able to set the camera onto a flat surface and not have it askew due to the BR fastener.

Use one of the PD straps with the anchor(s) hooked to the strap lugs on the camera body and one to their mounting plate; it's part of their overall system design and one of the reasons I've been using them for years.

Take a look at my "One System: L-Bracket, BR Strap, SpiderPro, Hand Strap and Even CC Vest, Oh My"

May or may not be helpful but at least there are options.
