this is a must see for anyone with a money maker or person who would like to shoot two bodies at the same time.

this video illustrates how I'm using the money maker
before you watch, know this.
the #1 video shows the big picture, but the method is my original one, and not as clean.
the #2 video shows an improvement
the #3 video is the result, super clean and effective, lightweight method

you must watch the final update b/c that is the answer!

Apologies in advance. I'm not a video guy. And I don't have a mic.
Cheers!

Hehe interestingly I'm doing something similar....I'm doing what the vid maker used to do and attached the anchor links to the moneymaker slider. But it seems like it would work better if I removed the money maker slider completely like he did.

There are horror stories of cameras falling off of the moneymaker clip. The peak design anchor links are solid as an attachment point and are really easy to attach and remove

Ah nice! Thanks for the vid then! I actually went and did what you did and removed the holdfast slider. It's a lot lighter and more minimalistic now.

Only because I'm ok with the anchor links, though they need to be inspected regularly for wear.

I do need to get split key rings though, as to your point in the video, they add some length. I like to use the moneymaker in conjunction with the capture clips to stabilize the camera when I'm moving around and not actively shooting. The cameras swing around too much on these harnesses. But yeah the cameras don't sit low enough to easily mount to the capture while on the moneymaker. I need about about an inch more of length.

I would remove that extra peak design part, that you have attached to the MM clip, in this pic that you posted. just use a key ring.
In your case, look for a LONG oval shaped key ring! do your homework on them, titanium vs. whatever else is out there.
cheers

VERY excited to show you the final copy of my weekly update video on my Holdfast Money Maker & Peak Design Integration Project. It's done. I finally took out the hack saw and cut off the Holdfast clips. There is nothing wrong with them or their design. I just prefer to use the Peak Design clips b/c it makes it easier for ME to move around from hand strap to tripod to single strap to dual strap. Love my Money Maker!

There is also a bonus, which is actually first. It includes a quick look at the Peak Design Sling bag and how I can get the Money Maker into this bag, along with two D750 and two pro primes!

I'm going to add the sliders back onto the harness. I put this to use for the first time this weekend and realized that the sliders are designed the way they are so you can pull the camera away from your body while shooting without obstruction. I had issues shooting without the sliders....for the camera on my left side, I had to unmount it to shoot.
