ProMediaGear has released a handy new accessory, the #SS2P3 Retrofit Quick Release Adapter, an Arca-type adapter that easily converts your camera strap. The adapter is designed to allow photographers to move quickly from shooting handheld to working with a tripod and ballhead strap-free, and then back again, so more time can be spent on getting the shot. The adapter can retrofit straps with one inch of webbing or less.
The adapter’s plunger mechanism is made of hardened stainless steel, supporting loads of 300 pounds. The whole setup includes the conversion mechanism, pin and screw, plus two additional small set screws and Loctite for additional safety. A video on PMG’s website shows the conversion taking less than 5 minutes to complete.
Once installed, using the Retrofit Quick Release Plug Adapter is simple—locate the adapter on your strap, insert the plunger into the plate, release the pin and tug, and then you’re ready to shoot. A strap’s original adjustable mechanism can be left on or removed, as desired.
A compatible bracket plate is required. If you already own one, pricing for the adapter is $49.95. If you need to purchase a plate—PMG offers a universal plate for any camera and custom plates for a variety of Canon, Nikon and Sony cameras—add $39.95.
