Stay at home
- Aug 16, 2012
I use a BR with the R5 and RF 100-500 attached to both the camera base and the tripod foot. It hangs better but the main reason is for safety in case one of the connections fails. In the past, I would carry a 5DIII and 300mm f/2.8 II attached by the lens alone, and the 5DII once fell off and required a new top plate. It slows changing lenses by a few seconds.
