Which one? Any reason one is better than the other?

I have the new gen 3 capture clip with the pro plate from peak design and love it.. I have the older ones as well and the gen 3 is so much smother on and off and feels better built... I am a huge peak design fan boy.

Do you mean Slide Pro? The strap also from CC? Or are you weighing against a completely different product?

If it's the former, you're in luck; the way the CC stuff attaches to your camera, this is not an either/or comparison. You just need to sort out what sort of carry situation you find yourself in the most.

If you're walking around with a backpack/daypack style bag, the Clip is *the* way to go, in my opinion. It's quick and easy to clip and remove quickly, and sits out of the way of most tasks you want to do with your hands; so, you don't have to store/remove the camera from the bag constantly.

If you're not planning to have a bag along, the strap's going to be your better bet; the Clip does not actually work well as a belt mount even though it's marketed as functioning there. The strap, though, connects with pucks that secure to the strap lugs on the corners of the body, leaving the base free to accept either the Clip's quick release plate or one for whichever tripod system you may be using.

I bought a couple cheap clips that attach to my belt and that have the pin on the bottom of the camera. When shooting a wedding I will carry a 5d4/70-200 as well as a 6d/24-70. I wanted to make sure I didn't mind the cameras on each side before I ponied up more money for the more expensive ones. I didn't really care for straps at all but after using a holster on each side I believe I may like having the 6d/24-70 combo on a clip and the 5d4/70-200 on a strap. I felt like I was walking funny when I did have them both on either side.

Given that, I'd hazard you would be better suited slinging a Spider Pro for your side/holster and back it up with a shoulder strap. I, personally, prefer the Sling that Peak Designs sells; it's slimmer and doesn't have a shoulder pad to get in the way but still lets me carry the camera/lens slung to the side all day when necessary. You may find other straps configured in a manner you prefer for your workflow, too.

Capture clip. I used spider for a while, but I can't stand the pins on the spider holsters.

Good thing about the capture clip is that it uses as arca swiss plate....so if you need to mount your camera on a tripod or something, you're still good to go with the capture system.

Plus the peak design system is really modular and you can do all sorts of things with the capture plates and anchor links.

Sounds about right with the latest v3 going for $50/unit

Capture Clip
- great for hiking and walkarounds
- very durable
- plate is arca-swiss compatible
- lightweight
- camera sticks out to the side
- add a flash and it sticks out even more
- attaches to backpacks and bags
- requires you to disengage locking mechanism every time you want to take it out
- affordable

SpiderPro
- great for weddings and walkarounds
- very durable
- camera hangs upside down
- does not stick out and works great with items attached to hotshoe
- you can either have it where it requires you to push on the lever to disengage locking mechanism or where you can slide it in and out without having to disengage
- price is a little on the high side
