I recently got a black rapid shoulder strap which I love. But is it really ok to attach a heavy camera body with big heavy lens by the camera tripod thread?
I am inclined to think the tripod thread is built in as part of the overall body metal frame that was impossible to detach, but also that if the thread could detach itself from the body under heavy load, the risk of the camera smashing to the floor is a very real.
I have read so many pros and cons about this issue and really would like to know the truth as I have currently stopped using it. Would a reputable company like black rapid really produce a strap that could damage our cameras or should I go ahead and start using it again?
