I see there is a 1 screw type and 3 screw type. Odd that the 3 screw original price is listed cheaper. Anyone point out the difference? I tried the code on the cheaper one and it didn't work.

The screw is what goes at the bottom of your camera that connects it to the strap.

I have two of these and I like it a lot. Having extra screws is good to put on multiple lenses.

You've got to be brave to risk $1000s of photography equipment to an off-brand sling strap. I think it is Black Rapid who make the original ones of these and even they had problems with metal fatigue in the tripod screw and the camera becoming detached.

If you do get one of these I would highly recommend having an additional strap attached to the neck strap connector on the camera so you don't drop your D850 down a ravine.

They have two models available:
1. Strap with 1 screw for $12.99
2. Strap with 3 screws for $9.99

Is there any difference in these models? They look same but, surprisingly, the one with 3 screws is rather cheaper. Comments please?

I totally agree, I am not comfortable risking my expensive gear on a $8 strap.

Yeah not sure I would trust at $8 strap to secure my camera and lens. This is something that quality is worth the cost on. Check out Peak Design for quality.

Oh I see now... they're extra screws. I just couldn't visualize where the other screws would go but now thinking that if you had more than one camera it would make it easier to switch cams. Still funny that the original price on the 3 screw was cheaper than the 1 screw. But I'm guessing that the seller raised the price to compensate for the discount.

If you have other Amazon items to Add On to your order that is greater than $25, this is a slightly better price.

I own this, and got it on sale last month for maybe 0.20 more than this. I also own(ed) an older model Luma Loop (the dog got to it unfortunately), and a Peak Design Slide to replace it.

Of the 3, the LL was my favorite - both durable and comfortable. My big issue with it was the clasp lost the rubber rings and it would constantly bang against my camera when not clipped to the strap. It lasted a good 5 years and would've gone longer had it not been chewed up.

The PDS was durable, but not comfortable for extended wear. It feels like a very soft seatbelt, but it doesn't really contour around the shoulder/neck area and I would need to take it off every half hour or so. The clipping mechanism seemed like a great idea but I rarely used it. I lost at least 3 eyecups using this sytem too. I still use the strap but I use it with the lens mount, as a lighter lens doesn't put that much strain on the neck.

I'm using this strap for my camera now, it doesn't appear to be the best quality, but it's much more comfortable than the PDS. It appears to be a generic version of the Black Rapid, but I've never owned a BR so I can't comment on the material. I added an additional clip to the neck strap ring as additional safety, and it's worked well for me so far. If this one does fail, and my camera still works, I'll get a BR next.

There exist people who don't buy expensive cameras.

I have a black rapid and never even considered it falling off. It seems very secure and I am very tough on my equipment.
