3.0 out of 5 stars not my shooting style, November 18, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I typically shoot with dual bodies, and have done so for a number of years using my Optech straps and a vest that has straps so the cameras don't slide off. I decided to try this system, and when it arrived, I gave it a test spin before realizing it doesn't fit my shooting style. I use dual 1D bodies so they're a bit larger, and normally I'm used to the bodies in the upright position as I drag it to eye level. With this system, the bodies are hung upside down due to the way it mounts to the tripod holes. Also due to the distance, I feel like I can't just drop the cameras to the side like I do with my shorter throw straps. I'm feeling like it'll just drop (even though the carry speeds do have a backup system in the event of failure). Finally, one more thing that doesn't fit my style is that I can't just easily put one camera down, or hand it to my assistant to change lenses, etc. It requires unscrewing, and it just takes more time vs, unstrapping them. All in all, I think it would be a great product, if I didn't already have my own system of doing things.

The materials are great, but unfortunately it doesn't suit my style, and I'll just go back to the system that I'm used to.
