Looks good. Now, do all that stuff get in the way shooting in portrait? I'd think they make it harder to reach the thumb dial.

Definitely effects portrait shooting, but if you just connect the strap to the Utility loops by themselves, instead of the FastenR-2, then the strap rests on the top of your hand in portrait mode and doesn't affect it.

if you must have something to limit the movement of the camera, go pick up a 1" ladder lock buckle with a more defined shape such as thefourth item on this page (external link), undo the webbing at back and install it.

can anyone tell me if this requires removing the stitching? and if so, will this void the warranty if any?

no it doesn't require removing any stitching you just have to remove it from the 2 rings found on the back i think

correct, you do not need to remove any stitching... just weave the webbing out of the locking metal double d-rings and slide in the ladderlock... and fix the webbing back on the same way.

I've had the Loop II for about a month now. So far I'm very happy with my purchase. At first, I was nervous that the metal coupling would scratch the camera body when it's not hooked up to the strap. However, the rubber rings around it work awesome in cushioning any contact with the body.

Ok, so I received it yesterday. This thing is sturdier than I thought and very well made. It also moves up and down very smoothly without the banana moving out of place.

However, I have one issue or concern. What do you guys think about the lanyard? To me, I think the lanyard feels too long and find my camera shaking (while resting next to my waist) a little too freely when I'm walking or simply just moving. How are you guys managing this?

congrats on the new loop. i actually like the length of the lanyard. i do admit it hangs loosely beside my hip but i like being able to grab the camera and bringing it up to eye level to shoot without it being too tight. i do have to be mindful if i'm in close quarters to ensure it doesn't swing and hit anything. i ordered the Capture camera clip which i'll use in conjunction with the loop to holster it on my belt or back pack strap.

What's a capture camera clip? and where is it from?
