Thanks, Brian, but I would consider carrying the Rollei on a tripod slung over my shoulder even more potentially damaging to the back plate than suspending it on a strap. The torque on the bottom plate would be at the best angle for damaging same. It would depend, of course, on how the camera and tripod is carried. Using the support as a sort of a cane or walking stick would be the best option?
