Anchor Links are quick-connectors that can be placed on the ends of any standard/OEM camera neck strap, giving it super-fast, ultra secure quick-connection capability.

NEO 2 is a revolutionary LED light, that combines the 'shoot what you see' benefits of continuous light, with the flexibility of High Speed Sync (HSS) flash, for more power or to freeze action.

Although it has been around for a couple of years, this is still one of the best in its class.

In the USA Amazon is always a good first call.

I have these on all of my cameras so that I can transfer one strap quickly from camera to camera.

When you do not want a camera strap  -  when you are using a tripod, for example, - it takes seconds to remove the strap and to replace it again afterwards.
