Im looking to add some arca swiss plates to the Foot of the Nikon 70-200 V2 and one to the body so that I can carry on the dual sling and mount on tripod as needed.

I found one from three legged thing

And an L plate but BH was unable to comfirm if the screw mount on the bottom would work with the fastner.

For one body I will also use a flash bracket.

I want ease to swap from strap to tripod as needed without having to unscrew the BR fastner each time.

Are these good options? suggestions

    Check out the B2-FAB by RRS buddy. I use one for my Black rapid which mounts to their 70-200 replacement Arca Swiss foot.

    I forgot all about that Golf The RRS King 007sd

    That would work great on the body.
    Will it work great on the foot too?

    I just keep the FastenR screwed into a Kirk 1-inch clamp, which then clamps onto the Arca-Swiss plate in the camera body, for strap carrying. Just undo the strap clamp to move the camera to the tripod clamp.

    Yes it will. I fact, when I use the 70-200, I mount it right to the foot. A quick turn and it comes off and on to the L-plate it goes.

    Great. Now one more question. What about the flash bracket, will there be a place to attach it as well.

    Yes, no problem, the flash bracket will be attached to the side of the L-plate.

    Not trying to go cheap but I'm already adding more the shopping cart that what I planned for.

    I would be happy just not the CFO of the family.

    I think its time for @Golf007sd to make a video for us

    Vip I can relate. Just picked up a new lens that I saved for 7/8 months. Her response was who let you have that money you saved. yes dear. (next a new foot for the Lens,gimbal head and a 16-35mm I think.) hehe. Do you know when the video will be out. :-B

    I use my 70-200 with no foot at all when using the black rapid. It balances much better.

    I like all the options presented here. The arcatech looks fantastic and the M-plate pro however I'm leaning towards the RRS and The Kirk one @dissent mentioned

    Here is my current setup

    Setup for Indoor carshow flash bracket is to hold the Zoom H4N for audio for a movie as the shoe adapter only goes half way in. I will not use flash but if i did that would be the setup for today.

    Upper left 70-200 stock plate of MeFoto tripod.
    Upper right flash bracket on camera and arca plate on flash bracket.
    Bottom pics the arca plate has a loop for the BlackRapid strap.

    My current setup needs an upgrade

    I use the M-Plate Pro Tripod Plate with the Joby and BR sling strap. Two things that is great about the M-plate is that it is both Arca and Manfrotto RC2 compatible - which I have both type of quick release systems. The other more obvious is that you do not have to take off the screw to put the camera in a tripod.
