Loop / sling strap for SL with RRS camera plate

Is anyone using the RRS camera plate's option to attach a loop for a more convenient carrying of the camera?

If so what loop would you recommend?

I have found this one (http://www.eddycam.com/en/shop/slings/SLiNG-2-L-hand-strap.html) online but I am not sure how well it works and fits (w/o battery grip attached).

The original Leica S-loop is also meant to be used in combination with the battery grip. That's why I am concerned that both loops are a bit too long when used with the RRS plate.

None of these options work well if you are going to change between battery grip and normal + baseplate. Re-attaching most handgrips/straps is a pain. 

 

Threads have discussed this in the past ..... this was my contribution .....https://www.l-camera-forum.com/topic/267283-hows-the-sl-stock-carry-strap/page-2?do=findComment&comment=3202180

 

Several of us use the cheap Herringbone strap and it is comfortable and works well ..... but it is a bit of a permanent fixture due to complicated attachment method.

Sorry for the confusion. I don't want to change between battery grip and RRS plate. I will just use the camera plate. It's just that the loops I saw were always shown or designed for cameras with a battery grip attached...

The Herringbone strap looks good, thanks!

RRS sell a leather strap as well and a lot cheaper also they sell the magpul slings as well I would just buy straight from them with the plate they are really helpful if you phone them

Thank you all, especially Ingo for the photo!
I just received the camdapter loop. The first impression wasn't completely positive. Installation is a bit tricky, there is no chance to attach/detach it on the fly. Second observation was that the leather part of the loop is pretty long - probably too long for my hand size. But this looks similar with the eddycam strap. I used to have Nikon AH-4 for other cameras. That seemed to fit a bit better and allowed for a more secure handling. If I find it I will try whether it matches to the SL as well...

Hi. here is what I do:

 

I have an RRS base plate or battery vertical grip.  Both have another strap attachment  site at the bottom.

 

I attach  a BOS Strap BOS Tail to each strap attachment site  (Each BOS tail is $10)  THe BOS tail is a 4inch long strap which attatches to the camera in the usual way at one end and a solid metal ring at the other end.  

I use a BLackRapid sling strap to clip onto both rings.  THe Black rapid straps have a locking clip .

 

THis leaves the bottom of the camera free to attach to monopod or tripod via socket or arca swiss plate.  I can quickly detach the sling strap or change base plate for battery grip. I find the camera hangs and rests at my side much better with two attachment points on the grip side of the camera and this setup does not impede grabbing the camera quickly.

 

I will try to post pictures

Hello,

 

For those of you using the Herringbone is it a correct assumption on my part that you are using the "Type 2" straps rather than Type 1?

 

Thank you to all that have provided pics and info. Very helpful. I am using the RRS grip on mine and the Herringbone looks like just rhe ticket for me.

When you sling the camera, does the lens face outward?
