The Camdapter Arca XT Adapter with Chestnut ProStrap provides a strong and functional hand strap system that can be used with a camera, neck strap and tripod - all at the same time. It is best used with small bodied DSLR cameras such as the Nikon D50 and the Canon Digital Rebel series and is a smaller version of Camdapter's Arca Neoprene Adapter. It also fits all Arca Swiss QR and RRS (Really Right Stuff) Clamps. The adapter is manufactured from rugged satin black anodized aluminum and contains an anti-slip, cloth-finished neoprene insert that adds an important anti-twist feature to the system. Once attached, the plate stays put and won't slip around like various camera flash brackets that skew and that you always find yourself readjusting.
The adapter plate attaches to the tripod socket of your camera and has a 1/4-20 tripod thread on the bottom so you'll always be able to attach your camera to a tripod without removing the strap - a real benefit when the shot calls for added stability or a slow shutter speed. The adapter also has double strap lugs that permit you to use the ProStrap as well as a neck strap. This assures a double layer of protection against any possible slippage. One of the main features of the adapter is that at no time will it block access to either the battery or media card compartments - another time saver during a shoot. The adapter is extremely lightweight at 1.44 oz (41 g) even with all its pins and screws.
The ProStrap is made from top grain leather and is soft and comfortable. It fits into your camera easily and stays in place once you've easily adjusted it to your hand. It's bolstered by heavy-duty nylon thread and is made from one continuous piece of rugged 3/8" nylon webbing. For added safety, it has a built-in slip lock.
