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.

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.
i've been using the stock strap. i just wrap it around my hand like bak-zhang/dumpling. works pretty comfortably
any other good alternative to herringbone handstrap? i want softer feel.
