Quick release buckles - no standardization
Bought a Trekking Safari Strap, which works well, but I find it less convenient in some ways than the Pro Master or Op Tech straps I've used in the past. And each one has a different way of connecting to the camera itself. Both use quick release buckles, albeit of different sizes.
So I thought to make up a small adapter consisting of a small and a large QR buckle on a short piece of strap. In that way, so I thought, I could leave the short attachment on the camera, and connect any strap, depending on the need at the time.
Alas, it seems that there's no standardization whatsoever in the QR buckle world! Bought several sets of 1-inch and 1/2-inch QR buckle sets from various suppliers, and none will interchange with the similar sized QR buckles on the Trekking, Pro Master, or Op Tech straps.
Anyone have any ideas?
