    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.
     
  2. 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.

    Thanks Phil,

    Good idea, I will do that this weekend
     
  4. 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.

    Frits,

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.
     
  6. 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
