the rapid strap (r-strap) seems to be a very popular item and one i am considering. looking at it it bolts into the tripod socket and the weight of the camera is supported by this point...
...this is ringing alarm bells for me! how much weight is the tripod socket supposed to be able to support? the camera is supposed to sit on top of this point not be hanging from it!
is it safe using this product in this fashion? anyone had problems or heard of problems arising frm hanging ones camera in this fashion? what weight can be supported from this point?
am I just being over cautious or am I being reasonable in thinking this way?
