One of the major complaints about the fantastic BR strap is that you need to unscrew the FastenR3 in order to attached the plate to the camera body. Since the plate from both RRS and Kirk comes with a strap slot, why can’t we attach the BR strap to the plate via a short quick release buckle (similar to those used in UPStrap but much shorter)? One end is attached to the camera plate and the other to the strap. Actually, the core design concept of BR strap is to use only one attaching point to the camera so that you can pull up your gear quickly. Why does the strap have to be attached to the tripod socket, not to one of the two eyelets which are already securely attached to the camera? Did I miss something important?
BR is an innovative design, but other followers including Sun Sniper, Carry Speed, C-loop, Luma Loop, etc., just copied the tripod socket attachment concept.
