I bought these along with other items for the Op/Tech quick connect strap system and love them all. These straps take the load off of my neck and put it on my shoulders through the back pack. I can't believe that I did not find these sooner, my neck wouldn't be hurting so much. It's hard enough to find a good product, but to find a great product made in the USA is even harder. THIS IS ONE OF THOSE GREAT PRODUCTS! Keep up the great work Op/Tech, you have a customer for life. I will be buying more very soon. (posted on 6/5/13)

I added these to a Lowepro backpack and use them to hold my camera when hiking. After getting headaches and neck/back pain from using neck straps for extended periods these make a world of difference. I can hang with a FF DSLR with a 400mm lens off of these and have total confidence with their ability to hang on. The connectors will fit any backpack harness that has 1" webbing on them and they have never failed me. (posted on 5/22/11)

Question

I want to attach my Nikon SX20IS camera to my backpack using this Reporter/Backpack system connectors. I also want to use a wrist strap on the camera once I remove or disconnect it from the backpack. What other items do I need to buy to do this? The wrist strap I'm interested in OTCWQDWN seems to have small connectors. It doesn't have to be that wrist strap but that is the style I am wanting but not necessary. I can't tell if I would need adapters or if this is something I can not do. Any help is appreciated.

Answer

The Reporter/Backpack system connectors will work with any of these wrist straps:
EZ Grip Strap
Gotcha Wrist Strap
Grip Strap
SLR Wrist Strap
All of these products use a Uni-Loop to connect to the camera; so they are all interchangeable.
