Looks like a good idea - a Ty-Rap would work in this application too. The only issue would be it could restrict mobility of the camera but at the same time that could be a good thing to prevent it spinning around.

BTW, a buddy at work just bought an $18 eBay knock-off of the RS-4 and he is going to being it into work to show me. I will report back the build quality to all of you.

I would also recommend you get an extension tube set

I never thought of that -  Which one *do* you recommend then?
I have a set of Kenko 300DG's - they support AF and work great. Well priced at roughly $160ish at B+H.

Jamesy, B&H only charges GST unless you are lucky enough :P to live in a province with the HST (BC & ON), then you fine folks get to pay the HST.

Suddenly I feel very special ;)

How did the Queen talk the Canadians into that one :)? I demand Naomi Watts or Sienna Miller (preferably both) in exchange for this service, and nothing less!
I don't think she needs to talk anyone into it, she is our Queen too as Canada is a member of the Commonwealth.

Here's one of Will and Kate I took last summer on Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Canada Day - and yes we too have the Queen on our Money. Taken with my 40D and 70-200 F4 at F4. Heavly cropped.

I could have used one of the Briansquibb specials in the second shot I posted  ;D

Kate Middleton is next in line to the throne after Camilla.

Just a minor point - Prince William is second in line after his father, Prince Charles. Kate will become Queen but wont rule
Right - that is why Queen Elizabeth took the throne when her father George passed away as opposed to the Queen Mum ruling, right?

Brian, was that one of your white whales in the press gallery? LOL

Spare a thought for the rest us who ordered very late... i.e. March 5th  ;D

What does it mean when BH says the status = Back ordered; does it mean I missed the first batch?

I noticed there is no tax on your invoice. I looked it up and IN has 7% sales tax, does that not apply to your purchase?

Does BH charge you taxes?  :o
Yup they do. I am in Canada and they charge whatever the provincial tax rule is. I live in Ontario therefore it is 13% but if you live in Alberta it is 0%.

Canadian retailers do the same thing - they charge the destination provinces tax rate on any online purchase - they don't trust us to remit taxes at the end of the year, unless of course you are a business.

From everything that has been said here, it seems to me that there are inherent flaws in the design and/or construction of these products. I was tempted, but now I'm minded to stay well clear! How about the 'sun sniper" range? Any better?

I wound up buying a Sun Sniper strap.

Their swivel hardware is 100x better than the Black Rapid stuff that has been pictured in this thread. 

The Black Rapid hardware looks a lot like the low end stuff you can get at a hardware store.

The Sun Sniper swivel piece is stainless steel and made in Germany.

This looks very interesting however there does not appear to be a quick way to detach the strap from the camera body - you would need to unscrew it, correct?

I just re-read your initial post, now I get where you experienced the failure. I mocked up a picture of the issue in case it helps someone else. Your BR failed at the blue circle whereas mine failed at the red one.

There was along thread on straps here: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php/topic,3672.0.html

In the same thread I pointed out that BR sent me a free replacement of the ConnectR-2 device as one of the rivets had work itself free.

... it reminded me of the box where my 5D mk II with 24-70 was in, that was also a pretty large one.
I didn't know there was a 24-70 offered as a kit lens. Was it in North America?
