Normal Optech straps for me.

One camera around my neck,
One over the shoulder.
Zero expenditure.

that's how I did it.

That's how I do it as well. Though I'm probably in the minority with stock Canon straps.

I keep the 1D with a wide-angle lens around my neck, and the second one with telephoto over the shoulder.

Just wanted you to know I saw your request. I'm unfortunately (or fortunately) so busy at work, I've only used it with one camera. I have a feeling, though, it's not going to be great and that the full, over both shoulder harness is more comfortable. But I will let you know.

I also have the Optech straps, from POTN, except that I have two (2) 5D's. Cannot afford two (2) 1D's.

I have a single spider. Can you show the spider clips affixed to the belt you speak of, perhaps with you wearing it? Thank you.

I just bought the Black Rapid Yetti and will try it with my two bodies.

I just looked at the Yeti - looks like a good solution if you have light cameras, or are just using it for safety.
I prefer my DR1 though (although i have thought about making my own ultralight version from 1" webbing)

I got the belt from here

i got this version (just the Titanium buckle version is this expensive)
http://www.thewilderne​ss.com …titanium-instructor-belt/ (external link)


showing the back of the clip (there is a steel plate that goes over the top of the belt, and a thinner plate that covers the bottom of the belt)
im not sure exactly which Spider bits i have, as i got it second hand from a friend

Heres another pic of the belt
the Logo on the belt that looks like a little red mountain, is from a now defunct company "Eotac" who were selling the Wilderness belts, with their logo on too

I dont have any pics of the cameras at the moment, as the cameras are at work.

I just have the standard BR lugs screwed into the Spiderholster plate, in a way that they wont get in the way of the pin/clip system

No worries,
I will try and find a photo of me at work with both cameras on the system too (might be a challenge)

I just removed the spider holsters from the original belt and mounted them on the Lowepro belt. The Lowepro belt is a bit thicker and feel more comfy with 2x 5D3 with grip.

I also recommend the Cotton Carrier. This is me with two gripped 5Ds on the Cotton Carrier (ignore the body in my right hand):

Cameras can be secured in the holster with one hand in one motion, and released from it with the same ease. I can go from 24mm to 200mm in 2 second.

There is also a separate strap holding the body to the vest which serves as a second level of security. I love the hand straps too.

Doesn't a neckstrap get in the way of an across the chest strap, or vice versa?

^^^

I've not had a problem with that. Black Rapid on first, then the neck strap. What is nice is you can also move the neck strap over to your left shoulder and carry the cameras on your sides.
