    I have a Canon PowerShot S95 and I love this camera. The grip cord that came with it is not so lovable: it is thin and frays easily. Besides, I like carrying my camera with a full neck strap, and not a grip. The choices I had were the leather Canon Leather Neck Strap, which was too thin for me. I went to the B&H Store and saw that all the available straps had cords that were too thick for the S95's cord slot. A salesman recommended this product, which I partnered with the LowePro Speedster Strap ($11.95 at the B&H refurbished section). I got a lot of good comments for my custom strap.

    The cord of these loops may be too thick and I looped it through the camera by "sewing" it with a thinner cord.

    Bought this for my 7D and found that I had purchased incorrect loops. These are good for point and shoot type smaller type cameras and equipment. Gave them to a fellow photographer to use. The construction looked fine for their intended use.

            Used these to make a strap a quick disconnect so I could switch from battery grip to regular grip easier. There were four sets in the package - very handy. They seem to be more than strong enough for my Pentax K3 with battery grip and a 200mm telphoto.

                    I bought extra of these so that I can quickly go from my camera or the hard case for my camera on my neck strap.

                          I use them on a Fuji x20 to switch between a neck strap and a wrist strap.
                          They work great.

                            in my opinion, op/tech manufactures outstanding equipment/accessories that are made in the usa. i also have their neck strap and wrist strap for my dsl cameras. I purchased these quick-disconnects to add to a paracord lanyard I made to attach a leica monocular for use at my shooting range. the fit and function is superb. the loop fit the lanyard hole on the monocular perfectly. there are four sets in a pkg. for me, there aren't any negatives. the quick-disconnects function as they are supposed to. i would definitely purchase these again. thank you for your time.

                            They seem to not be strong enough, but they ARE. Very light and easy to put on. I need to buy another set for my other cameras. The only issue I have is that the clips are a bit too small and my fat finger don't always let me detach them in the first attempt. haha!

                                These are excellent! Very handy so I can swap straps with my cameras easily. Sometimes I like to just use a hand strap, sometimes neck strap, sometimes nothing at all! These connectors make it very easy to swap them in/out.

                                Not sure if I'd put these on a bigger camera though. Perfect for smaller cams like the Sony A7, OMD, etc!

                                    These clips worked great for attaching handmade parachute cord camera strap to my Canon T4i. They are very durable and the quick release is great.

                                              This was totally my fault when purchasing for not reading more about them but these are EXTREMELY tiny. Perfect for a little compact camera but that's it.

                                              These connectors are well made with good strong material. They are easily opened and closed. It would be nice if they had a strap on the closed end, or if they had a comment as to which one to buy to add to them.

                                                  I use my Canon EOS xti for both daily use and astrophotography. I needed a way to easily remove the shoulder strap from the camera to reduce weight when attaching the camera to a telescope - THIS IS IT!

                                                  I was concerned that the quick disconnect might do just that, disconnect, while the strap was attached to the camera, but this is not the case. The latch is solid and requires a little more effort to release the latch ensuring the required sense of security.

                                                    I attached these connectors to my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200 Digital Camera. Now it is simple to remove the neck strap or the wrist strap from the camera. They appear to be very strong and I am sure I will always keep them on the camera. I highly recommend this inexpensive accessory. In the past, I was use to the quick release neck strap on the Hasselblad and was always sorry 35mm and digital cameras did not have them. Thank you OP/TECH for solving this annoyance; I wish they had been available in the 1970's.

                                                      Used these to eliminate the bulky strap rings that come with the Olympus E-M5. With these, it is a simple matter to thread them onto the strap lugs of various compact cameras. Remember to remove and inspect for wear periodically.
                                                      Two pairs are included, which is nice.

                                                          I'm using the connectors on a Canon 50D with a Canon supplied neck strap.I don't always use a neck strap and was tired of the tedious task of the web strap "on and off" routine. The connector buckles fit the nylon straps just right, mounting the cords to the camera is quick and easy, the same is said for removal.A low cost fix to an old hassle….
