NEX-7 "lugs"
Mar 3, 2012

Hi folks, after months of waiting, I've just received my NEX-7 this morning!

The battery is currently charging, but my first impressions of the camera build are good, except for one thing. Those lugs on the side for the neck strap.

I personally rarely use any sort of strap. I'm very careful and usually keep my camera in a case with a strap, then just pull it out in my hand when I need it. Straps just get in the way, I find.

My NEX-5 just had two small metal fixings on the sides that didn't get in the way at all, but the NEX-7 has two annoying wobbly connections that will drive me mad.

My question is, can they be easily removed? It seems like maybe they could unscrew with a twist, but I don't want to try twisting it too hard and break it because it doesn't detach. Has anybody successfully removed theirs?

Thanks

Russ
