I often use my tripod, which uses the same mount on the bottom of the camera, and wondered if there was any other way to attach the camera to the strap or other work arounds? Thanks.
I guess the short answer is that you must remove the strap to use the tripod mount on the camera. I use a Kirk L-Bracket on the bottom of my Canon 70D which has a threaded hole for the strap. But I still have to remove the strap to mount the camera on my tripod. The advantage to using an L-Bracket with an Arca-Swiss style mount is that it can stay on the camera all the time so I just have to remove the strap and mount the camera to the tripod. I don't have to screw in another mount or screw the camera to the ball head plate. Its relatively quick. If you're just walking around with the camera I think the RS-7 is the best solution that I've come up with in 30 years of photography but there are still times when the strap gets in the way.
