Established belts from DSLRs are complete junk. To understand this, it is not even necessary to have a DSLR. It is enough to look at how many different alternatives are offered to them by third-party manufacturers.
The concept of a branded belt is inconvenient: once you attach the belt and then constantly get tangled in it when you take the camera in your hands, even for a minute. But even without a belt, there’s no way: it’s very inconvenient to carry a load of a kilogram and a half just like that, taking it in your hand. And the price of a mistake is high. Fastening and unfastening each time is also not an option: threading all these ribbons into buckles is a troublesome business.
A reasonable compromise seems to be the use of a belt on small carabiners. Ali is full of these fasteners. But looking at photos of that suspiciously flimsy Chinese plastic, with those thin loops for camera eyes, I decided that I was not ready to try my luck like that.
But it seems that there is one reliable solution after all. I took it for a test and quickly realized: yes, this is it.
So what was sent:
Bag with braided strap. Weaving from a synthetic cord, similar to a parachute sling.
Here’s a big one.
On the one hand, the weaving ends with a melted tip, a sling comes out of the weaving …
… on the other — a loop where the sling is threaded. A ball with a lock only holds the desired loop size, it does not carry a power load from the camera.
All! No joints, no plastic, no unpredictable snap hooks and broken strings. No glue or tape either.
We pass the loop through the eyelet for the belt. She herself will not slip, it is better to push something thin.
The diameter of the sling is exactly such that it can crawl through, but there was no free space left. What is called, “strength for all money.”
When I was throwing away my very first digital camera, I took off the loop from it. Now my lantern hangs on it. Once a brand new fotik has long been in the trash, and the loop — it turned out to be eternal. I think when this DSLR suffers the same fate, the parachute line will move on to the next one. And what will become of her? This is a rapidly changing digital world. And in the world of ropes — stability.
Yes, the loop is elastic, pleasant to the touch, not rough, but not slippery either. Doesn’t rub the hand.
I give a gift idea to those who use massive cameras.
And fans of everything “tactical” should like that in some emergency situations the cord can be untwisted to be used for emergency needs.

About a hundred rubles!
There are many color options out there. I chose black and red, like Canon’s stock belt.
Well, the discount, again, right now.
