BosStrap BOST overview

  • 1Description

The black BosTail from BosStrap is used in place of the tripod fitting that is commonly used in many other two-piece camera slings. One end of the BosTail attaches to your camera body's left strap lug or eyelet ((depending on your camera's model) while the other end contains a nickel-plated ring that is permanently attached to the BosTail.The BosTail is adjustable from 2-4" (5.1-10.2 cm) to accommodate your height or shooting style. 

The real advantage of the BosTail is that since you are not committed to using your tripod socket you can easily and rapidly attach your camera to your tripod without having to detach any kind of connective strap that uses the tripod socket to support the camera. This feature also minimizes potential damage to the tripod threads and internal seals of your camera.

One of the most outstanding aspects of the BosTail is that it will not interfere with the basic operation of your camera - either horizontally or vertically. In addition, since it never needs to be removed from your camera, it will enhance and speed up your shooting options.

Adjustable 2 - 4" (5.1 - 10.2 cm)
Eliminates need to use tripod socket to support camera when using the optional BosStrap
Connects to left lug or eyelet of camera
Never needs to be removed from camera
Works horizontally or vertically
Will not interfere with camera's controls

    BosStrap BOST reviews

    BosTail (Black) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Accessory for DIY Slings I constructed a lightweight DIY sling strap for my Sony NEX 7 consisting of a repurposed Minolta SLR strap and a 250lb rated Quick Link. I did have a Black Rapid FastenR-2 for mounting the strap to the tripod mount. However, unscrewing the tripod mount just to mount the camera to a tripod became cumbersome. So I sought for a better solution. I tried a metal keyring to one of the camera lugs but it looked ugly and interfered with my shooting. Then I found and bought the BosTail. I found it to be less intrusive with my shooting style, freed up my tripod mount and looked much nicer. I liked the fact that this product is made in the good ol' US of A.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from CHEAPEST & BEST ADDITION TO ANY CAMERA I am an early user of the original BosStrap for which this product was designed. I beleive Bos and BlackRapid got into a tiff over some patent infringement by Bos and they had to change there strap's tethering system. The new design is nowhere near as good as their original design nor as good as BlackRapids current carabineer tether (which ironically is not as good as the no longer available original BosStrape device!). But BlackRapid's current camera attachment device is terrible (it screws into the tripod threads on the bottom of the camera). So I bought this to attach to a new camera and tether it to the carabineer on BlackRapid's YETI Dual Camera Harness. Works like a charm.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from cool product Can be used with carabiner or s-biner for attachment to belt, shoulder strap, clothing strap, or belt loop to hold a camera while setting up a tripod or using your hands for other things. Combine with keyring or split ring to prevent setting camera on the ground, in the mud, or on an abrasive surface.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great accessory! I bought this as I just changed to a Really Right Stuff Ballhead system and my Black Rapid sling strap connector wouldn't work. This proved to be a great solution as I attached it to one of the neck strap holders and then I can easily attach the Black Rapid strap to the ring.
    Date published: 2014-02-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from PRECISE Not too long; not too short; not expensive; precisely what I wanted. I recently bought a cross-the-shoulder camera strap that connected to a ring screwed into the tripod thread. Could not open the card/battery door, however, without unscrewing the ring. And... I didn't like the way the camera (Canon SX50) hung from its bottom. Thus, a short strap with ring to connect to the camera body strap bar. The BosTail works precisely the way I want.
    Date published: 2014-06-24
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works as advertised I used it on my L bracket and my black rapid strap. It fees up the tripod socket. It works great.
    Date published: 2012-12-04
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, effective device! The BosTail was easy to connect to my D5100, and eliminates the need to connect my Black Rapid sling to the camera's tripod mounting. Once mounted on the camera, the Bostrap attaches and detaches easily from the Black Rapid's clip to facilitate easy tripod use.
    Date published: 2013-02-10
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes other product better I decided to try a black rapid sling strap but to me the design does not work well because I almost always have an L bracket on the camera and do a lot of shooting with a tripod. This product allows me to attach the strap to the regular camera strap loop and leaves the tripod socket free.
