    Fast removing strap for the A7?

    Hi guys,

    When I'm shooting events with 2 cameras I use a black rapid dual strap, but it bothers me that the regular straps are flopping around...I also don't want to remove them every time I have to use the black rapid dual strap. So I was wondering if anyone could advise on a strap with 2 snap links or a quick release that I can remove fast and that can hold am A7 with a grip, an F43M flash and a 70-200mm f4.

    Basically what I want is something like this, except it without the massive padding and the bulky snap links: Lowepro Deluxe shoulder strap review Or this:

    Your Black Rapid will do it all....with the following:

    B2-FABN: 38mm Screw-knob clamp with strap bosses

    Put a small RRS Arca compatible plate on the cameras...the B2-FABN on your black rapid...

    Unscrew the clamp and you drop the camera on tripod/mono compatible with the base plate or handhold without any strap.

    I have gone to using this for all my cameras....unbelievably simple and works!

    I'm actually going to to with this: OP/TECH USA Uni Loop System Connector

    It's perfect as the A7's "strap hole" is very tiny.

    I use Lance Camera Straps with quick disconnects on the ends.

    I like the OP/TECH that Rawfa suggested - very convenient. Currently I use their sling strap with these when just walking around and take it off for studio shots or when I use a Spider holster for an outdoor shoot. Spider Camera Holster

    I like this one for the A7 and my Leica. The connection that is attached to the camera is plastic and won't mar the camera when you disconnect the strap. There are also two choices of strap, with a conventional shoulder strap and a wrist strap available.

    There are 10% off coupons available on the web, too.
