    Currently im using the stock neck strap provided by canon. But i'm feeling agitated by the camera bag sling + camera. Feel like its gonna choke me one day.

    So i usually wrap around my right hand only but still too bulky. Thinking of buying the 1 hand strap or NO STRAPS AT ALL! (Like nv wear bra)
    I'm using this strap & it's good for me

    So now using the Herringbone hand strap, but only one free hand now. Might be going back to stock neck strap, so can free out the other hand.
    that was my worry too. Also, i had also doubt on the strength of the tripod thread, which is supposed to take load in the opposite direction. Not sure how structurally sound it is to take the pulling load of body+heavy lens.

    this kind of testing may not be truly representative of the actual day-to-day usage loading.
    the type of loading demonstrated is a gradual increasing load.
    Shock load, which might be experienced during normal day to day use, example when camera is suddenly released or running without holding the camera, might give a different failure mode which the tripod mount is not designed for.

    Not to mention that if we were using a battery grip, then the weak point maybe the grip screw/mount instead of the camera tripod mount.

    hence, not in favor of this design.

    Actually the tripod thread on higher end models are integrated into the mag allow stuctural frame. very very strong. Not sure about the entry level models though.

    I have used rapidstrap for nearly two years, and personally I trust the tripod mount more than the strap lugs. Once you screw the lug in firmly it feels very secure.
    One reason why I like rapidstrap is that when you are using flash, the camera will be balanced when hung upside down from the tripod mount rather than from the strap lugs, where it will flop around due to the higher center of gravity.

    Consider cotton carrier hand straps.

    the cuff is working well for me thus far! needs a fair bit of strength to push down and remove the anchor though.
