Do you own a camera? Do you use a sling-style shoulder strap to carry that camera instead of an old-fashioned neck strap? Are you tired of screwing on and off the attachment loop to mount your camera to a tripod? The Fusion Plate camera accessory Kickstarter project may just be your solution. It’s a dual-purpose camera mounting plate that allows the user to attach a shoulder strap to it as well as acting as a quick release attachment plate for tripods. The shoulder strap mounting point is a fold-down design that allows you to tuck it away when you want to mount your camera to a tripod. It’s made out of aerospace aluminum and 300 series stainless steel and attaches to your camera via the 1/4 inch accessory hole in the bottom of your camera. The Fusion Plate is currently seeking funding until May 18th. Pledges start at $1 and run to $68, with $60 getting you a black FPG-1001 Fusion Plate. If funded, the product is slated to start shipping in May 2013.
