    A fraction of the price of the name-branded slings, this strap has worked just as well for me so far. That being said, I do have some slight issues with it, but nothing that would remove a star from the rating, considering how inexpensive this thing is. Since I’ve been attaching my new (and loved) Sony A7ii to this, and don’t particularly feel like risking a few grand’s worth of camera to the structural integrity of one bolt, I made a failsafe for it, which I’ve posted a picture of below. Like ALL camera straps, this is one of those devices that will work perfectly, right up until it fails, when it will unceremoniously send your expensive equipment towards Terra Firma, before you have a chance to do anything but watch in horror. If that attaching screw ever snaps, you’re boned… Sooo, I attached a small piece of very thin climbing rope (well, string, really) to a neck strap connector, and a small (but weight appropriate) carabiner to a hoop at the end of that rope, which clips onto the rectangular bracket on this strap, which you can inspect for any wear. Now, if the bolt or other weak spots fail, this will catch the camera before it falls. Adds about $5 to the cost, and takes about 10 extra seconds to attach to my camera.

    DO NOT purchase this! I have had it approximately one month and I was just shooting a wedding when my camera went crashing to the ground! Total crap! MY CAMERA AND LENS SUSTAINED $700 WORTH OF DAMAGE BECAUSE OF THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE–I am trying to get someone at Amazon to help me pay for repairs. DO NOT PURCHASE!!!!!!!!!!!!
