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.

      Connectors for OP/TECH system or 3/8" strap

        • Replacements For Optech

        Comments about OP/TECH USA System Connectors Mini Quick-Disconnect Loops (1.5 mm):

        This set of connectors could be replacements for worn or lost connectors with any components of OP/TECH system straps, belts, etc. They are well made and - essential for holding expen$ive camera$ - they do not appear to be vulnerable to accidental release. The release tabs are recessed and require deliberate pressure on both sides, unlike many somewhat similar connectors.
        The only vulnerability I see is that the stout fishing line which attaches to the camera lug could be subject to chafe over time, so should be inspected periodically.
        These connectors can also be used to make a 3/8" camera strap much more easily detachable.

            Comments about OP/TECH USA System Connectors Mini Quick-Disconnect Loops (1.5 mm):

            The modern style camera straps are a pain to remove and to put back on.
            I like to get the camera strap washed occasionally or I may want to remove it to send the camera for servicing or put it in an underwater enclosure.

            These solve the problem genially. They seem strong and I use these on my mirrorless cameras. I wish there was a larger version for DSLR cameras. The larger size model requires Op/Tech straps, while these work with any camera strap.
            I bought 2 but 2 pairs come in a package. so I could have bought just one. But good to have some spares.

                I've been using Op/tech straps and connectors for a couple years now. Very reliable and the different quick release sizes make the system versatile. The loop weight on these is strong enough to hold my OM-D without concern.

                    Bought this product to eliviate the problem of 2 straps when using long lenses such as 70-200 and 100-400. I use a Black Rapid with those and needed a way to get factory strap off quickly. It also fixes issues with tripod mounting so I don't have a strap to get tangled up in. Is strong enough for my full frame and 24-105 and crop frame with any of the lenses I have for it.

                        The loops on the Sony RX100 are too narrow - the cord is thicker than the average wrist lanyard thread.

                                    Pick these up to be used with my Canon A-1 with a FDn 50mm f/1.4 lens attached. Having had experience with the much larger QD Connectors on my 5D, I had faith these would/will live up to my expectations. And i was right. I only actually use one attached to the body using a wrist strap I made and it couldn't have been a better match. Great product as usual from Op/Tech!

                                      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.

                                          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.

                                              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 this to attach my favorite standard neck strap to my new camera.

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