I just received my Domke 1.5 " wide non-slip camera strap. Now It came with 2 leather triangles with one horizontal and one vertical slit in at each end, they come off, and two split rings.

How do I use these with my D70? Maybe I don't and they are for other types of cameras. I feel stupid. Any explanation would be appreciated.

Carman, seems that nobody has that strap and so can't answer your question. Maybe you can post a photo of it and I think some people here would be able to figure it out.

OK Carman,

I have this strap on my old FM. This is to prevent brassing on the body at the strap attachments.
I have tried to think of a way to explain, but it gets hilariously complicated, while it is so simple, really.
I'll shoot a few pics of it tomorrow and will post them here.

All right Carman, here we go:

Again, this was for the older 35mm cameras to prevent brassing around the body lugs (works beautifully!!).

So:
- pass the camera strap lug through the vertical slit (of the leather triangle)
- attach the round ring (only) to the camera lug
- pass the strap through the round ring and the horizontal slit (of the leather triangle), then secure normally.

I hope this is clear :D :D

I do not use the leather patches with my D1x. The lugs are positioned differently and most of today's bodies are definitely not prone to brassing :D :D

Thank you Frits,

Now I understand. However, the D70 has a long slot, not a round nub like the picture shows.

I will try this in a few minutes.

Thanks again
