Attach your full-sized DSLR or compact camera to a belt, strap, or even your wrist with the black Strapshot EV1 from Cotton Carrier. The front of the EV1 has a locking, quick-release camera clip that mounts with a press and twist – a simple one-handed operation. The EV1 features a large D-ring on top for attaching to a clip or belt, a safety tether, which serves double-duty as a separate wrist strap, and touch-fastening rear wings for mounting to a vertical strap such as might be found in a backpack or shoulder bag.

The procedure for using your EV1 is simple. Attach the EV1's rubber washer and mounting plate to the base of your camera with the included screw and Allen Key. Next, attach the included split ring to your camera's strap lug. Last, attach the safety tether's swiveling snap hook to the split ring, and the EV1's snap hook to the safety tether's D-ring, and you're ready to begin shooting. Then when you're done, store your camera by mounting it to the EV1's quick-release camera clip. Cotton Carrier recommends the use of a minute amount of LocTite as an added precaution. Always inspect your EV1 for debris or wear that might negatively affect its performance.

    Strapshot EV1 for Full-Sized DSLR & Compact Cameras (Black) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from StrapShot I bought this in preparation for a two week trip to Death Valley. The product seems well thought out and built. Unfortunately my day pack has ergonomic shoulder straps that cut away sharply under the arms. I was not able to find a place to attach the StrapShot. I did put it on another pack that my daughter will be using that has more squared shoulder straps. The fit was very good, and thanks to the way the camera side mounting hub attaches to the threaded tripod mount it worked great for the small digital camcorder she is carrying. I would recommend this product but suggest you verify it will work on your selected pack.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really helpful for hiking Got this for a trek in Peru that I knew I'd want my camera accessible for. I used it with a Fuji XT-1 with either the 14mm or 55-135mm lenses. It took a little while to figure out but once I set it up it strapped nicely onto my pack and the camera was totally secure. You screw a little piece onto the bottom of the camera (which happens to block my battery door - this is annoying, but really not a big deal) and then slide your camera onto the piece attached to your pack. My pack had curved straps so it took a while to find the right spot to attach, but really ended up being totally cool and made my camera extremely accessible. I know I took a lot more photos that I might have if I had to carry the camera another way.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Avoid a sore neck I needed to carry a heavy camera to the back country, but didn't want want the neck strain that goes with the usual camera strap, also needing to have the camera right at hand. It is now immediately available, it attached with ease to my backpack. I didn't like that the directions are minimal to non-existent on its assembly, just a few photos on the box it comes in. I like that it has a separate hole for a tripod, even when the adapter is in place for the attachment to the carrier.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Hiking I hike a lot with my camera and the Strapshot is great for having my hands free while hiking. Easy to access the camera when I need it . I don't really understand the safety strap and hand strap's utility. If I take off my pack and want to walk around with the camera the neck strap is a much more useful way to use this product. Would not want to unhitch the safety strap and use the hand strap (no drop protection) Overall I'm very pleased with this and the universal tripod adapter I subsequently purchased. Both were a bit pricey but ultimately worth it. I love not having to hold the cameral all the time and no big harness in addition to my pack.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good so far I have used on my belt and on my pack strap. Seems a bit akward at first on a pack strap becuase the camera is held close to your face but it makes it so you have full free arm movement and it is readily accessable. Just takes a bit of getting used to having the camera right there. Quality is good and it holds my Olympus e-410 with a 70-150 zoom just fine. I like that it came with a safety tether. The hand strap it comes with will not work on my e-410 as the strap eyelet is positioned in a way that makes the handstrap ride right over the shutter release. Other cameras with the eyelet more to the side of the camera body would not have this issue.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lopsided I bought two of these; one for my wife and one for me. Each of us put the rig on our backpacks. We both agreed that the camera secured on one backpack strap made the feel of the camera weight lopsided. We had no weight on one strap and about 3 lbs on the other side. Also the fact that the camera was right there, in front of our faces was a little disconcerting. Backpacking in this manner would drive me crazy. That being said, the normal cotton carrier looks like a good idea, because the weight is in the middle of the body and is held in place well by a harness.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for Having used a Cotton Carrier for some time while trecking thru the desert and brush I wanted to get someting to keep the camera ready while wearing my backpack and get it off my chest so I could have better visability of where my feet were. This does the trick. I attached it to my backpack strap and now the camera is off to the side enough, yet still within the width of my body to keep it out of the brush and harms way. Works as advertised

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from There's room for improvements First, the product does not come with any assembly instructions. Granted, it's not rocket science to figure it out, but it would be so helpful, especially to connect the clip to your backpack; and if your backpack does not have any buckle in the upper part (as in a sling bag), you can't, or can you? That's when an instruction booklet would help. Although you can find on Youtube some how to videos from Cotton Carrier, but those are not too good and not helpful. Furthermore, if you use tripod, the provided plate can only partially slide in to your Arca-Swiss type ballhead because of the clip hub taking up some of the room, making your camera not able to sit in the center on the ballhead, it's sticking out to the side and therefore balancing is an issue. Even with the Universal Adapter plate, it's better but the camera still off center.
