Custom SLR C-Loop Camera Strap Mount Solution (Silver)

You Pay: $39.95
Product Highlights
  • Relocates Strap Mounting Point
  • Mounts Strap to Bottom and Swivels
  • Strap Stays Out of Your Way
  • Switch Easily from Landscape to Portrait

The silver C-Loop Camera Strap Mount Solution from Custom SLR improves your shooting experience by relocating the strap mounting point. Whereas the traditional camera strap is mounted to the top of the camera, the C-Loop mounts it to the bottom via an included tripod screw and integrates a swivel. This enables the camera strap to stay out of your way while shooting, and thus makes it easier and more enjoyable to use your camera.

The C-Loop swivels 360° to reduce tangling and enable smooth panning. Its low profile also makes it easier to transition from landscape to portrait shots. It works with existing camera straps and all devices with a tripod mount.

Material Aluminum
Attachment Method 1/4-20 thread screws into tripod socket of camera

      The major plus is that it's extremely easy to remove the strap from your camera at any time with this attachment. The major downer is how much it costs. I think the pricing is a little expensive, and to be honest, the usability of this strap mount depends on large your lens is and how heavy it is compared to your camera body. Too heavy/long of a lens and your camera doesn't rest well against your body when hanging as it would if the strap was attached normally. Other than that the swivel action is built well and the construction is very solid, but it's not the perfect solution. Still, you'd be hard pressed to find anything else out there that's better. Also be careful, the little rubber spacer can fall off and disappear if you're not careful when removing and putting on the strap mount.

      This accessory provides a very nice carry option, provided you are shooting with relatively short lens. It is certainly safe, secure and beefy enough to support a reasonably heavy load of an SLR and professional lens. However, when using longer lens (24-70, 70-200, etc.), use of the C Loop is either going to position the lens in a way where it is digging into your leg, or has the lens protruding out away from your body. In either case, it won't be as comfy as suspending the SLR from its primary support points and allowing the longer lens to point down and out of the way. I works best with lenses of the 50mm variety and shorter. Also, tying up the tripod lug with the C Loop precludes use of a monopod or tripod unless it is removed. When you tag this item with a pricey $ sticker, I find it a bit pricey for the benefit I expect to derive from it. It is well machined and substantial in strength, but I don't see myself using it that often and it would be pricey at half it's cost.

          Comments about C-Loop Camera Strap Mount Solution (Black):

          I wanted to switch from a neck strap to camera sling. I had originally bought a Black Rapid curve strap and returned it. I found the Black Rapid's swivel hook connection to be a bit too clanky (its a metal hook and a metal swivel). When the camera would move on the swivel hook, it would transmit noise - made me think something happened to my camera. So I returned it and bought the C-loop. I combined it with Op/Tech's Utility Strap Sling. It works great. The camera will swivel without noise. The camera also doesn't sit as crooked on a table top as it would with the swivel hook. This means that I am not resting my camera on the lens tip and one corner of the body. While it sits crooked, it is not as pronounced.

          The C Loop is well bit. I am glad I bought this model rather than the cheaper one. I didn't want to carry an Allen wrench around. Now I can disconnect it and mount on a tripod as needed. My only complaint is that this product isn't cheap.

                Works very well as a solution for quickly removing your strap for use on another camera, tripod mounting, etc. Not exactly a bargain, but at least it's well made and the materials and construction are of high quality.

                    The thing is solid and you see that it's made with quality material. I don't see how it could break. That doesn't mean it's a perfect system. Every screw will eventually unscrew. This is not a screw and forget system. Mine unscrewed completely… by chance, I was holding my Canon 5D Mark III with a 70-200mm when it happened. A friend that bought a Blackrapid strap got that trick from the sales man. Each time you store you camera, unscrew it completely. That way, you're sure I'll be screwed all the way each time!

                      Comments about C-Loop Camera Strap Mount Solution (Silver):

                      A camera strap that mounts to the tripod socket on the camera body is a great idea, but most of the expensive straps made for this purpose have a serious drawback -- a bulky shoulder pad that is slippery and won't stay on the shoulder. Now, this extremely well-mde little gadget allows me to use a (relatively inexpensive) neoprene strap with a sticky back and get all of the advantages of the bottom mount on the camera body for shorter lenses. And
                      when using the big 70-200 mm zoom on the Nikon D3 or D800 with grip, attaching the strap to the telephoto tripod mount socket lets the camera hang with an an almost perfect balance, without slipping off my shoulder.

                            I really like this. I like my camera strap to go around my left shoulder and hang off my right hip. Long story short, no matter how you wear your camera, the strap would hit me in the face or block my viewfinder when I turned the camera to shoot vertical. This moves the straps to the bottom of the camera and out of the way. It's also nice if you have a heavy lens or speedlight. Before the camera would start flopping around and tipping over. Now it stays put on my hip a lot easier. I think it makes it easier to grab the camera. And it's so simple, just screw it in and attach your camera strap. Easy and works great.

                                  I love not having to deal with the straps at the top of the camera, getting in the way of my fingers all the time. Used it quite a bit these first two weeks, and had no problems with it coming loose or feeling insecure. Only downside is that the camera doesn't sit on its base with the C-Loop on, but I always lay it on its side anyway, so not a problem for me.

                                    I used it hold my DSLR, it's easy to use but seems a bit fragile. They work well and I'm happy with it.
                                    The only cons is costly comparing to other similar products.

                                        Easy to use, secure mount. Swivels smoothly and silently, good build quality.

                                              I bought this to go with the camera strap by the same company. I have used it on 2 long photo shoot sessions. The C-Loop now squeaks when it rotates, very annoying sound. I will be calling the manufacturer and most likely returning this product.
                                              Not happy right now.

                                                  I read about this in WIred, and found it as ingenious in use as it was described. Working with the Glide Strap, it feels weightless on the shoulder and super-fast action to bring the camera up to eye-level to photograph something, literally less than a second.

                                                  Also, it is exceedingly well-manufactured: I don't know if it's made in USA or not, but it looks like a fine German, Italian, English, French, Japanese or American-made machined metal.

                                                    Need to be used along the "Glide Strap with Split Strap Technology" but after using different straps, I would have to say this is one of the best one out there.

                                                    comfortable on the shoulder, well padded, camera slides easily.

                                                      Fantastic idea and keep your expensive lenses pointed down away from damage but still avail in a second. works on DSLR with attached grip, I use it on my Sony A580 with its grip attached no problems. pick up one and you'll wonder why you didn't get it sooner
