BLF-GT Shoulder Strap Selection

BLF-GT might generate interest around shoulder straps. Suggestions about straps sought.

E.g. Home made slings, straps for cameras or bags. Purpose made rife slings may also be worth investigating.

I bought this shoulder strap for the GT: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/100-Genuine-CANPIS-Leather-Camera-Should...(link is external)

It showed up yesterday and it is very nice. I think it will work very well. I am very excited for this light.

Thank you to Sciencetists

He had better solder that split ring together. That looks tenuous at best

Thats actually my GT and my picture at the top of this thread. Nikolas rehosted. The sling is this one off ebay:

And I have some other rings coming, because yes, these suck.

Sorry for the big pics, I don’t know how to adjust size while using the simple post editor Innocent … Advise is always welcomed! Smile

I Purchased this camera sling for $6.49 shipped from Ebay, It arrived in a reasonable time from Hong Kong (Took just 10 days!)

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Camera-DV-Photographer-Extra-Large-Sponge-Shoul...


I like the fit of it, seems sturdy and the screw and plate fits great it does not move a bit once tightened.


Since now the button is on the other side I use my middle finger to turn it on or off easily, if you put your thumb on the screw your middle finger lands naturally right on the button when grabbing it.

Edit: The sling also works with the original lanyard hole screw that came with the GT
