  • Made in the USA

OP/TECH USA’s Compact Sling™ provides the unparalleled convenience of a shoulder sling for smaller point-and-shoot style cameras! The low-profile neoprene shoulder pad features a nonskid surface which secures the pad on the shoulder while the camera freely glides up the strap into shooting position. The OP/TECH USA Mini QD Loop connector attaches easily to the camera with a thin cord loop for tight connection areas and a sturdy 3/8” quick disconnect for easy attachment to the strap. The quick disconnect smoothly glides up and down the 3/8” nylon webbing strap to create the sling effect. The length is fully adjustable and has an additional plastic triglide which serves as a stop so that you can adjust where you want the camera to rest in the lowered position.

The Mini QD Loop is fully compatible with OP/TECH USA’s Mini Loop Strap - QD for a more traditional neck strap as well as the Cam Strap - QD wrist strap and the Finger Cuff - QD. This added versatility enables your gear to quickly change along with your ever-changing needs. Experience the freedom and convenience of the most versatile strap system on the market today!

Customer Reviews

A great strap for hiking with a mirrorless camera, though still a bit floppy review by MM

This is exactly the right strap/sling for my Sony NEX 6. I appreciate the quality construction and it's clear that the Mini QD loop is plenty strong enough to hold the NEX 6, even with the 55-210 zoom lens attached. It still swings a bit when hiking - perhaps another QD loop on the other connection point might help stabilize it. But in general, I am very pleased with this piece of equipment. (posted on 1/1/14)

Question:

Is it possible to unthread the strap on the Compact Sling in order to remove and/or replace the triglide or quick disconnect?

Answer:

No, it is not possible to unthread the strap on the Compact Sling. The ends of the webbing are sewn directly to the strap pad. In order to remove the quick disconnect, you would need to cut the webbing and then re-sew it.
