Re: image helps

I'm sorry that I can't help with the original problem.  However I have used tripod spot for the sling type of strap but I always use the vertical grip as well as a Kirk or Really Right Stuff L bracket.  Once the strip is mounted on the bottom of the L bracket, the weight is distributed along the bottom and the sids of the vertical grip and camera.  Since the only connection with the strip is with the bracket, and the connection of the L bracket is only to the vertical grip, then little force is applied to the actual camera.  This approach works well for both Canons and Nikons.

I know this doesn't fix the posters situation but perhaps it might help others before they put on the sling type.  Bruce
