I think we all agree the holder is awesome! It's absolutely what caught my eye first. Now in the words of the famous philosopher Rodney King "can't we all just get along?"

I can't remember if I've posted this setup, I don't think I have, so here goes... p.s. it was REALLY cold, probably 10 degrees before wind chill, and no assistant so no modifiers

Setup:

Won't comment on the final image but definitely have to give kudos to anyone who would go out in that weather to shoot unless there was a really big paycheck involved. Me, I get cold when the temp falls to 70 or below.

I'm glad for you that you are a member of the one percenters who have lots of disposable income. Based on your equipment list, it appears that you can not only afford the best of everything, but can also afford to waste money on "bullet proof" pockets for your remote shutter release. Not all of us are that wealthy nor that foolish. If I could afford all the expensive equipment you list in your first paragraph, I could probably waste money on unimportant things also.

FWIW, that is not what I would expect to be the equipment list of a 1%er. Not nearly enough Leicas or fast and long primes.

Loved those two Venus transit shots. You guys are some lucky dudes!
Couldn't see sh*t in Portugal, for the whole transit was during nighttime. :(

I'm always amused when people look at the price of things that make life easier. Thousands of dollars for a body, thousands for a pro lens, a thousand for a tripod, $200-400 for a ballhead. And you complain about the price of a hand-tooled bulletproof product at a price of $40?

The material here is high-end, military-grade, padded Cordura, with a non-slip backing sewn onto the back of each strip. Military-strength hook and loop fasteners. Magnetic closure of the flap. Complete customization of material, pattern and color. Customized strap length. Made by hand, this is a mom and pop operation.

Make it yourself, find the high spec materials, cut and sew them, how long do you think that will take? For me, time is money. I'm overjoyed to find a product like this, where someone else has devoted the time. I'm fine with paying $40 for that.

It will get me a shot faster with less fuss, that I can sell for 50 times that price.

:lol: relax.

There's just no way I'd pay forty bucks for a remote holder. Call me... frugal? I'd rather just use a knife sheath (which it totally looks like) that costs five dollars for similar high spec materials. I don't know though... I might just be missing that 2000 dollar shot because I don't have a custom remote holder... :lol:

After realizing I could get a geometric kaleidescope (sp?) effect, I took this photo looking through an aluminum square tube. I got his glasses reflection to line up so it looked like you are seeing both eyes when you are really seeing the same side of the face mirrored. Kinda neat IMO. I might try to play with it more later. But I have sooo many ideas that I want to play with I don't have time for them all :(

Cool setup and result. Has anyone ever said you look just like Mr. Finch on the tv show "Person of Interest"?

Not trying to be a troll, because I am not one. I imagine that one of these would work:

Would just need a velcro band. I think I am going to do it.
