Product Description

Camera Strap Buddy The Strap Buddy is a simple way to carry a camera with large lenses easier and more convenient. The product attaches one side of your existing camera strap to the bottom of the camera by connecting to the tripod mounting hole. The strap buddy can also attach to lenses that have a tripod mounting option. The camera strap buddy attaches to the bottom of the camera and provides an alternative location to attach your existing camera strap. By changing the mounting location of the strap, the orientation of the camera now faces downward, close to the body and in a much more comfortable position. This is safer for your camera and ready for action!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for anyone who carries a camera frequently. June 25 2016

Love these. I have one for each of my cameras. It lets the camera rest at my low waist or hip instead of bouncing around on my chest.
It also allows the camera lens to hang down rather than facing forward bumping into things or people in crowds. It also removes the weight of a long lens off your neck. The only complaint that I have is the price keeps increasing. I paid $12 for my first 2.
4.0 out of 5 stars The current version seems to be improved. March 3 2012

I read a lot of reviews that said the Strap Buddy would come loose and drop the camera after a fairly short time. Basically, the reviews stated that there was no mechanism to secure the screw.

On my version, the thumb screw appears to have a rubber O-ring that prevents the screw from loosening on it's own, at least it did when I used it.

That said, the metal clip still rubs against the bottom of the camera as you hike and makes the most annoyingly loud squeak. They need to add a small spacer between the camera and the metal clip to prevent this, then it would be perfect.

2.0 out of 5 stars the idea is better than the execution Jan. 17 2011

This item attaches to our Nikon and changes the wearing angle as described, which is great. BUT, as a couple of other reviewer have mentioned, it loosens very easily. The first time my daughter wore it (for less than an hour) the screw came out and she nearly dropped the camera. She now knows to re-screw it constantly. She has always taken care with the expensive camera, but it's disappointing that she now has to worry about the strap detaching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solving the problem you didn't know you had. Dec 10 2010

If you own a DSLR, you have a problem with your strap even if you don't realise it. That's pretty much how I came to this product - I saw a promo video, had a "d'oh!" moment, and purchased one on the spot.
With a normal DSLR, the strap attaches to either side of the camera body. If you put the strap around your neck, the camera sits lens-out against your chest. If you put it around your neck and one arm, holster-style, it hangs lens-out under your arm. And until you buy a Strap Buddy, you'll just think that's the way things are with a DSLR. Or even an older film SLR for that matter.
The Strap Buddy is dead simple. Undo one end of your strap from one side of your camera body, and attach it to the Strap Buddy, then screw the Strap Buddy into your tripod mounting hole. The Strap Buddy rotates, meaning your strap doesn't get twisted, but more importantly, it makes your camera hang lens-down, not lens-out. This makes carrying it around a lot more convenient. In 'holster' mode, it now hangs neatly down out of the way of your arm. And you can swing your camera up to take pictures just as easily as if the strap were attached traditional style.
Need to mount your camera on a tripod? The Strap Buddy unscrews easily with no tools.
I can't recommend this little thing highly enough - it's so simple and it makes such a difference to carrying an SLR around that you'll wonder how you managed without it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Falls Off Easily! Dec 7 2010

Good product, does what it should. There's a video from the inventor online if you're unsure how this thing works. My only problem is that the screw has no method of locking itself in! Every so often you need to re-tighten it. It fell off once for me already. But luckily it happened as I was going to pick it up.
