Curious as far as what else you might carry with you Katodog, like a flash, or filters and such. Where does it go should you choose drag that stuff with you? Maybe just take two cameras with a bag on the left?

My camera "strap"...the Cotton Carrier. The only way to carry gear, actual straps are old news, and they suck compared to what the CC offers (just my educated experienced opinion)...

Reminds me of Arnold in Commando when he was putting on all that weaponry stuff. :)

I found the Canon neck strap got in the way of my left hand when re-positioning the camera at court-side HS basketball games. So I was on the lookout & just browsing at a local photo-shop. I found this neat (and cheap) wrist strap with a loop connector at the camera end. The wrist loop is kind of a rubberized flexible cloth, very comfortable. I think it was designed for a P&S or maybe that 4/3 type.

I've used it at 2 shoots so far, and it works well - it feels funny/scary to let it dangle from my wrist between shots, but it's very secure.

I got it from Ritz - it was kinda like <this one (external link)> but with a 3/4" wide, flat cloth-y strap.

Well, shoot - I should have looked on the strap to begin with... it's <this (external link)> one !!

....... edit: I see they've got a beefier one designed for an SLR <here (external link)>, but honestly, the slimmer one feels good enough for me.

Here's my strap:

But when I'm doing sports photography (like ski racing) or a long day walking around, then it's the Cotton Carrier - which is a fantastic piece of gear.

katodog,
I have to say when I first saw the picture my only thought was how nice to have a camera for each lens, excellent carrying system, I am jealous.

I have the Black Rapid RS- Sport Extreme Sport Strap. Feels great and I like the under arm safety tether which keeps the strap from moving around.
