Need this to Tether to 2nd Attachement Point

By VegasGuy

from Vegas

Verified Buyer

Comments about OP/TECH USA System Connectors: Extension (Set of 2):

You'll need one of these if you want to Tether your camera to a second attachment point which I would do if I was carrying a Full Frame Camera. These are available in a little extra long version as well. If you have a sling strap and want a little more room or have an articulating screen you may want to consider the longer version. It's pretty much impossible to know unless you are buying in store or have used them before. So I bought a pack of each for convenience. I'm sure this pads Optechs bottom line... would be nice if they recommended which one to get for the straps.

PS: If you are left handed get a gender changer pack so you can flip their straps around.

        Exceptional Versatility

        By Ole Perfesser

        from Lansdale, PA

        Comments about OP/TECH USA System Connectors: Extension (Set of 2):

        These extension connectors, along with the others that are available, make the Op/Tech system so exceptionally versatile. You can literally create a custom strap for your own specifications. A great idea and a great value.

          Comments about OP/TECH USA System Connectors: Extension (Set of 2):

          I purchased these to extend the length of an Op/Tech strap. What I really like about the Op/Tech approach is how versatile and modular it is.

          The challenge, though, is that it can be a little difficult to understand what you need, and how the parts fit together, simply by looking at the catalog information.

          I have two straps now, and they are very good upgrades to the straps that came with my cameras.

                Well if you're a big guy like I am you'll need the extensions or maybe no depending on how much of their gear you own. I could have made due with the loops but I wanted a professional looking setup without the loops so I got the extension set and I'm very happy. I wish the velcro strips that give you 1000% peace of mind that the buckles wont come apart were as part of the kit. I may still get the velcro strips lol.

                      Optech strap is just a BIT too short without them, I'm 6'1" and like my camera LOW on the hip. These do the trick. Best on the back of the strap.

                          Love my Op/Tech sling strap. However, it was just a touch short. I am 5'10 and short for my weight. Adding one extension allows the camera to sit on my hip quick to hand and keeps the strap from getting in my face when using the camera. Way less expensive than a couple other straps. As an enthusiast, I just could not justify the expense of the two "top dogs". Very happy.

                              I bought the OP/TECH USA Classic strap but found that, due to my large torso, the strap was a bit short to use as a sling over my left shoulder with my Leica V-LUX-4 camera cradled on my right side. The Extension set was the perfect solution. I use it in the sling configuration but leave it in the bag when I'm using the strap as a neck strap.

                                  this works well and is very comfortable for carrying two cameras when shooting events. In the manufacturer video showing how to use this product, they show how you can use it with one camera, however, I find that you can not sufficiently cinch up the non-camera side, so it tends to shift more to the camera side making it uncomfortable. To fix this, buy the OP/Tech system connectors ( set of two) they are shorter and will allow you to cinch it up tighter to use this with one camera.

                                    This is a very simple but effective pair of extension connectors for your existing camera OP/TECH strap. I normally don't like to have a strap on my DSLR so I unclip my padded strap when in use. I then attach an extension from one end to the other on my camera to act as a mini handle when walking around. You can use this for pretty much any configuration you'd like when used in combination with other OP/TECH connectors. I love the versatility that this provides.

                                          The extensions are of good quality and they matched my existing camera strap exactly. Lowering the camera bag with the extensions places the bag at a much more comfortable position. Perfect for long days of taking pictures. I highly recommend this product.

                                            Provides the extra length needed for matching OP/Tech straps. Adds more quick disconnects in the chain of things but they seem very secure none the less.

                                            I have an OpTech camera strap on my DSLR and have been very happy with it - except for one thing: it just wasn't long enough for me. I'm 6'6" and 270 lbs and am middle age wide in the middle. Although I had the strap adjusted as long as it would go, the camera sat up higher than I would have liked and it was not the easiest when bringing the camera up to eye level. Not the strap's fault, it's just the way I'm built.

                                            Then I found these extenders and it's a whole new ball game. Now the camera rides at my hip and is MUCH easier to bring up to take a shot. The OpTech strap was a good investment and now these OpTech extenders make it an even better one.
