Buyincoins.com - 3rd party Camera Strap for slr/dslr camera - $7.77

I buy a lot of random chinese stuff (lens mugs, lens caps, etc) on buyincoins.com and today I noticed they have a knockoff rapid camera strap for $8.18. BIC is probably one of my favourite chinese sites as they ship fairly quickly and don't pad up their prices like DX. They also take a photo of your package and upload it to your account before they ship it off.

I wouldn't use this for a 5D MKIII, but I have a 30D so I may give this a try ;) Put "fiveoff" In the recommender discount box for 5% off to lower it to $7.77

EDIT: review between the real one and the knockoff: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n21BGJgo2GE

It seems that the included plate isn't as good. However, BIC also sells the better mount for $1.61

I think the plate is better than that little POS, I wouldn't want it to unscrew itself
Plus, you can attach a handgrip to that plate

I got 3 of those and gave them to my friends, used mine with a D90 and a Tammy 17-50, survived a 2 weeks abuse while I was in china lol

I'm not sure about that review, seemed to dismiss it immediately and just keep hocking the Blackrapid. Of course they are not the same thing, but for the price it may be good enough for most people

The neoprene version is better...more comfortable and it doesn't slip around on your shoulder..like this one.

I've had the Q strap for about 2yrs now. I rarely use it cause I'm always going with just a hand strap. I do keep the included plate on full time to accomodate the handstrap, then I can throw the Q on anytime I need it. Anyway, for the $ you can't go wrong, and if your nervous about it breaking a simple tether is cheap enough to add.

Yeah that video didn't seem like a very fair review. He said he didn't work for Blackrapid but maybe it was given to him by the company etc. I just linked it to show the mount difference (and solution)

If the quick strap is similar in quality it is a no brainer but that doesn't seem to be the case from the review.

There is another knock off with the stopper for a bit more.

Is this the legit one or fake one?

That's pretty much the same one, a real one costs much more :p

So would everyone agree that this one is the best for under $10?

I sometimes only walk around with my 30D + 17-50 2.8 and forget my memory cards at home (I have a plethora of 4gb CF cards and nothing bigger). The Quick Rapid strap has a nice zippered pocket that is probably a selling point for me
