    I know they ain't cheap, but a lot less costly than camera repairs.
    The newer Bronica SLR's don't have strap posts-they have the standard style eyelet with rings.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Hoffy, would a Hasselblad strap have the right hardware for your Bronica strap posts?

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I wouldn't have thought so. Don't Hassy's have the post setup?

    Thank goodness for the Minolta and the save. As rugged as the Bronica is I can not imagine the damage that can be caused to the body alone, never mind the hunk of glass it sports.

    Once again, Minolta to the rescue. A Nikon probably would have just let it drop
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.

    Yes, but I do not have a photograph of it. I will look in the manual.

    No, that is not what I have. Later model Bronny's have a lug with a hole in it, similar to what you find on many Nikon/Minolta 35mm SLR camera's, so in reality, I should simply do what has been done on those camera's. The round rings that came on the camera obviously aren’t up for the task. The Triangular jobbies should do the trick (+ a standard Pro version of the optech)

    Nah, Nikons have a sentimental attachment to Bronicas, as the old ones used Nikkor lenses. Also, Bronica attach their lenses counter-clockwise, like Nikons, so there's that, too. And Nikon made LF lenses, too, so they're not the 35mm chauvinists Canons are.

    I know, some Canons are friendly, but others are just so insufferably arrogant!
