    I like it but I was always knocking my pager off my belt back in the day and I'd be afraid of knocking this around too. But that's just me....I must admit I'm just not careful enough...

    The video show a lockign mechanism that requires pressing ot release the camera..that was my first thought, too...just see my camera tumbling down a hillside.

    I don't know chris. Having the weight of your lens bouncing around on your hip, would prob. /eventually ,damage the camera's lens threads. Even a 35mm L lens has a good bit of weight. If it had an adjustable brace to support the lens, it would work alot better.

    Hmmm, I hadn't even given that a thought...mine is a bayonet mount, but I can see where the weight of a telphoto lens whould eventually give into premature drooping. I was just looking...one of those fun ideas that has some merit.

    To me it looks like a damaged camera waiting to happen. I want my camera on a strap around my neck.

    I personally don't like carrying relatively heavy gear on my belt. This is especially true in hot and humid conditions when perspiration tends to allow the gear to chafe. IF I HAVE TO carry heavy gear on a belt, I like to have shouder straps to equalize the weight...

    I use the OPTECH Dual Harness since I am most often shooting with a pair of cameras...

    Chris, my friend, a wedding photographer, swears by this product which is a variation on the same theme

    The one problem all these 'solutions' have in common is you end up looking a right numpty.

    Re: A friend sent me this link and I'm interested....

    I've a doubt about these systems...
    can the screw at the bottom handle the weight of camera + lens? I think it is designed only to keep the camera on a tripod...
    consider that the camera is in motion since you are walking.. and not in steady state as on the tripod
    so the force applied to the screw could be greater as the acceleration could be greater than the gravitational one (9,81m/s2)

    I agree with Steve. Having the weight of my D7000 with 18-200mm lens hanging from my belt... ...I can't really imagine that being comfortable (apart from the risk of damaging it)

    I've been using the Black Rapid RS-7 for a couple of months now and have found it to be versitle and easy to use.

    http://www.blackrapid.com/product/camera-strap/rs-7/

    I particularly like the fact that I can leave my tripod mounting plate attached to the camera while using the RS-7, allowing me to easily switch between hand held and tripod as needed.

    I would like to find a good carrying solution for my Manfrotto 190XB tripod and Gittos MH1000-625 Ball Head while the camera is on the RS-7.
