We have searched high and low to find the best camera strap system that mates seamlessly with our quick-release plates. After experimenting with many different solutions, we have finally found one we like.
The QD (Quick Detach) mounting system was perfect for our plates for several reasons: Secure:
This proven system has been used for years by industries around the world including NASA, law enforcement, and military agencies. The design inhibits accidental removal, especially when the camera is hanging from the strap. Additionally, the strap has extremely high load ratings that surpass the weight of any camera and lens. Fast:
Adding or removing the strap to/from your camera is lightning fast. Just press the button and push the pin into the corresponding socket to install, or pull it out to remove. Also, the strap material slides smoothly over your clothes. This allows for a smooth transition when bringing the camera up to your face or back down to resting by your hip.
The socket for QD attachment is so low profile that we can incorporate it into most of our quick-release plates without adding any extra height. Another great feature is that that our quick-release plates will fit flush within our clamps when mounted on our ball heads; there are no extra pieces you have to worry about getting in the way. Also, because the mount is so small, we are incorporating the design into many of our products. Visit this page
to see a current list of products that have the QD feature.
We chose the Magpul MS4 shoulder sling because it has a lot of features we love, and it is 100% made in USA.
