I'm thinking about buying the model 320D.....has anyone use one of these before. Seems to would be handy when out shooting wildlife, to bad there wasn't a local store that carries this product here in South Florida

I have one. Well a bush hawk, not sure which model. They're pretty nice, but be prepared to get a LOT of looks, stares and questions when using it. Also, if you use the * button to AF (or at least have the shutter disabled in the case of the 40D) then you have to monkey with your custom functions to get the camera to AF with the trigger. But w/o the looks issues, and after getting it setup it will help your stability quite a bit. You can even do the poor man's IS trick with it as well (string from the tripod socket) which makes it very stable if you're having issues.

I took the pad off an old crutch for the end and added an old strap from a bag so I didn't have to pay for their upgrades. It's very comfortable over the shoulder when walking that way.

unfortunately I don't have a pic of mine. I should get some though...
