BosStrap One Piece Sliding Sling Strap for DSLR Cameras
Video: BosStrap Features
The BosStrap One Piece Sliding Sling Strap (BosStrap OP) is designed to carry your DSLR camera safely and comfortably, while offering easy accessibility and extreme simplicity.
Like the neck strap that came with your camera, the BosStrap OP always remains attached to your camera. But the BosStrap OP has significant differences compared to conventional neck straps.
A sliding sling strap is more than just a strap worn diagonally across your body to take the camera weight off your neck. Sliding sling straps use a special fitting that moves along the diagonal strap, not requiring the strap itself to move. Your camera is attached to a sliding fitting. When not shooting, the camera safely rests at your right side for hands free security.
The camera glides up to shooting position because of the sliding fitting. When you bring the camera up from your side, the sling strap does not pull on your shirt.
Since the strap attaches to the left (recommended) camera strap lug, there is nothing to interfere with the camera controls on the right side of the camera. Shooting horizontally or vertically is equally unencumbered by the BosStrap OP.
The BosStrap OP Sling Strap is engineered to be the simplest sliding sling strap on the market. The 64” long, 1½” wide smooth nylon strap has a single adjustment buckle and a triglide to neatly retain any excess strap length after fitting. There is no need for a cumbersome and roaming shoulder pad because the wide strap comfortably distributes the weight of your DSLR on your shoulder, not on your neck. A low profile nickel plated fitting slides on the strap. A 3/8” wide, 8” long nylon tail, sewn to the fitting, attaches to the left camera strap lug slot, or the triangular split ring on the strap post.
Once you attach the BosStrap OP to the camera, you never need remove it. Your camera is attached to the BosStrap OP using the strap lug on the camera, not the tripod socket. With the BosStrap OP, there are no releasable connectors or threaded fittings to remove from the tripod socket. The tripod socket is always available.
Because there is no shoulder pad with the BosStrap OP, stowing the BosStrap is as easy as wrapping the strap around the lens.

Wish I Would Have Tried BosStrap First.

Simply what a modern day camera strap should be. I tried more expensive
competing brands and was not satisfied. The BosStrap is more comfortable,
more secure, more easily adjusted, less bulky, more easily stored and more
affordable than any of the other brands I have tried. It is simple in its
design, but engineered for comfort and security. When you "draw" your
camera to take the picture, it's as though the strap isn't there. And when
you rest the camera on your hip for carry, you can do so with full
confidence that the attachment to the strap lug, rather than the tripod
socket, is supporting your expensive gear as the manufacturer intended it!!
Had I bought the BosStrap to begin with, the only other camera strap that I
would have bought again would have been a second BosStrap for my other SLR,
although the G3 tail (weight rated at 60 lbs.!) allows for quick release and
use among several DSLR's. In my opinion, BosStrap is the only strap to buy.
