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've had this on my cameras for several years. I had a previous brand that would come unscrewed... NOT THIS one. Only negative is that it needs to be removed to mount the camera on a tripod.

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

    If you've ever used a 70-200mm with traditional straps you know how far the lens extends away from your body. This c-loop when attached to the lens tripod mount is a game changer. The lens carries so well agains the body and when shooting with another lens

    Great strap mount, which uses the tripod mount instead of the stock strap mounts (or in combination with). Allows the camera to sit more comfortably, especially with a larger/heavier lens. Works great with other Custom SLR straps

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

      I used the Black Rapid straps for a while, but beside being rather bulky, the connectors were also scratching my equipment. The C-Loop works great, and it allows me to us it with the straps of my choice for comfort. I use them with my 70-200/2.8 and 300/2.8 with the strap connected to the tripod mount on the lenses, makes it much more comfortable to carry the ling lenses that way. I do still prefer to carry my cameras with short lenses using a strap connected the traditional way, but this is my prefered way to carry my long lenses.

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

      I bought this as a gift for my photographer husband who said he wanted it... I was surprised to see how little it was! But once he showed me how it worked and how it allows him to sling his camera over his shoulder (he hates neck straps) I was pretty impressed! Given his camera and flash weigh a ton this should make long days of shooting weddings, etc. a lot less tiring.

        I use this with my Canon 70D and it works great. Then I bought the Custom SLR Glide Strap with Split Strap and the Custom SLR M-Plate Pro Universal Tripod Plate System Black. This combination works the best. I put a trop of Permatex 24200 Medium Strength Threadlocker Blue on the C-Loop mounting screw and one on the M-Plate mounting screw, because people were complainig about thier camera dropping.

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

          Definitely feels very robust and durable. The folding C-loop is a nice feature, and adds a lot of convenience. I have always been reluctant to hang my DSLR from the tripod socket, but it actually feels more secure than I expected (I'm using this with an Op/Tech sling strap). I purchased when the price went down a few dollars; but even then, it's a bit on the expensive side (but then again, the equipment it needs to support cost much more than that, so I figure that it's probably worth it.)

                  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!

                        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 bought one for both of my cameras. I love being able to go strapless if I need to without hassle. I also love the fact that my straps don't get all twisted up now.It works great with this. .
