Do not pay any attention to the review from Dick, he did not read the description. This fits straps up to 1 inch.
I photograph sports for high school and when I cannot use a monopod, this product saves my neck from stress.
A lifesaver product. But what else would you expect from this company. This is my 13th product I have purchased from Optech.
Lens Support Adapter clamps will not fit on a Canon camera strap (7D and XSi both are 1 5/8").
OP/TECH USA response:
The Lens Support Adapter will attach to any 1" wide webbing or seamed area. This is mentioned in both the product description and the Instructions tab. 1-5/8" is too wide for it to work.
