I must say thought, the B-Grip does a good job with gripped cameras because its made of plastic and the coverage area is longer.

Pictures are from my reviews, but here is the B-Grip with my old gripped D7000 on my own belt


And here is my old gripped 5D Mark III with Peak Design Capture Clip WITH ProPad also on my own belt


As you can see, even with gravity wanting to cause the camera to lean towards your leg, the B-Grip keeps it perpendicular to your leg.

And here is one with just a non-gripped camera with their belt

That's precisely the beauty of the Capture system; I use that combination, frequently. Mount the plate on the bottom of the camera and just attach the dongle(s) for the strap to the plate or another attach point on the body, and then lock the camera into the clip while moving around; and then just take it out of the clip while you're actively using the kit. I should qualify this with, the clip works best as a shoulder mount rig...I've never been able to get it to work satisfactorily as a belt clip unit.

I do the same. The beauty of the peak design system is how flexible it is, and how well their products work together.

Slings are great because of how quickly they allow you to bring your camera up to your face when actively shooting. The downside to camera slings is that they swing too freely and the opportunity to bang your camera into something always exists. The slide mitigates this by allowing to quickly adjust the length of the strap so it isn't swinging as much, but it still isn't fully stable.

The clip is great because of how stable it is and how it eliminates the strain on your back, but the problem with clips (and I've used spider, b-grip, and capture) is that taking the camera off of the clip requires two hands and it gets old when you're actively shooting and are constantly taking it on and off.

So yeah the combination of the peak design clip and slide (lite in my case) is that you can mount the camera to the clip (which I wear on my belt) while moving or shooting on your second body so its stable, and let it hang from the strap when you're actively shooting with that body so you can quickly bring the camera up to your face when needed.
