Best place to mount blackrapid sling for carry
« on: December 21, 2013, 01:11:48 PM »
Hi guys,
I have a blackjack is rs7 sling for my 7d. I bought extra hardware to mount the sling on the eos m. The rs7 attaches to the tripod mount.

Carrying the eos m. Should I mount it the base of the eos m or the m adapter tripod base when carrying ef lens like 70-200mm ect.. Which is stronger and sturdier for sling carry. Thanks.

I always attach my BR strap to the lens mount on my 70-200 when I use it on my EOS-M or 6D for that matter.  It balances nicely on the lens mount and I'm not sure I would trust the tripod mount on the M with all that weight.

Use the adapter mount if you're using the adapter.
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses
