    Some less well-built cameras have weak tripod socket mounts and can pull out of the camera body causing much personal distress and a very expensive repair, far exceeding the cost of a tripod. The money you save is far from the money you will spend if you break your camera’s lower plate and internal mounting structure.

    Many non-pro camera bodies are made of plastic, even some of the higher priced DSLRs are plastic inside. Unless you go with a pro body, which usually has a metal infrastructure, your camera is likely made of plastic through and through. This trick might be a disaster waiting for a place to happen.

    Also, bear in mind that camera tripod sockets are designed for a compression (downward pressure-and not much at that) load not a tension (upward pressure) load. Again, be careful how much tension you pull on the string.

    A person with even minimal upper body strength and a high tensile strength string can easily place 80 to 100 pounds of tension on the tripod socket and even more. That much tension certainly has enough pull to be disastrous.
