Couplers that are configured to engage with an attachment point on a camera or lens. Following general camera construction, the attachment points are typically found on the bottom of the camera or lens. The attachment points may be specifically configured to engage with the couplers. The couplers may be freely rotatable relative to the camera to prevent binding or tangling of a camera strap to which the couplers are connected.

Aspects and implementations of the present disclosure are directed to methods and systems for representing sets of files using signatures. In general, in some implementations, an audit system scans a file hierarchy comprising a root directory and a plurality of elements (e.g., directories, data files, and archive files) to identify elements satisfying an element selection criteria. The audit system creates element descriptors by identifying, for each respective identified element, one or more element component values and creating an element descriptor from the element component values. The audit system forms a string descriptor comprising an aggregation of the element descriptors and generates a signature for the string descriptor. The signature may be stored in association with metadata for the root directory. In some implementations, the audit system identifies multiple sets of files represented by equivalent signatures and records the representations of the set of files compactly.
