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)...

Yup, every time I shoot. Is that a bad thing? I use the Carrier every time I shoot, and it's gotten to the point where if I don't use it I feel really crippled. I tried shooting without it a few weeks ago, it was quite crippling. I kept having to set a camera down, find somewhere to put the camera, etc.. I'm so used to the ease of the Cotton Carrier that it's almost become part of me, I can't shoot without it.


It looks a bit odd in the picture, but only because the big lens was cocked funny. I had the side holster too far forward and the lens was skipping past my leg and swinging cockeyed. Normally it's hanging rested against my leg.

Ah. Well, that particular day I was at the arboretum. I carry the big lens because I'm mainly looking for wildlife, hawks and owls in particular. I put the macro lens on because I'm at the arboretum and there's always the chance of a decent flower shot, butterfly, etc.. The 18-200mm OS is my all-around lens, the lens I use for wide shots, walk-around stuff.

I wear it for car shows, using the macro for detail and portraits (for shows with models) and I use the 18-200mm OS for full-body car shots, detail, portrait.

I wear it at the zoo, big lens on hip, 18-200mm on vest. When I had the third body I'd have the macro on too, and then I'd swap one lens out with my 70-200mm f/2.8 when I wanted to use that lens.


I wear it pretty much any time I shoot. Like I said, it's gotten to the point where if I don't wear it I feel really crippled. I wore it to my daughter's spring sing, there's not many places I'd shoot without it. I shot a poster shoot without it a few weeks ago and it killed me the whole time. I had to keep setting a body down to use the other, and I was constantly moving so I'd have to run back to grab the other body, and set the one I was using down. Very crippling.

Shot the same way the week prior while shooting at a customs shop, same thing, way too crippling without the Cotton Carrier.

Lenses creep, that's what they do. I typically leave them extended regardless, because the 150-500mm I'm usually at 500mm anyway, and I don't feel like using the zoom locks because they're a pain in the butt to unlock when I want to grab the lens and shoot right away.

Figured as much. Nice setup though. Like the 150-500? I have thought about their otherone (50-500) for a while.

Love it. That lens goes with me everywhere. The newer 50-500mm OS version is supposed to be just as good or better than the 150-500mm OS. Click the Flickr link in my sig and look through the Lock and Dam #14 shots, 99% shot with the 150-500mm OS. I let the images speak for themselves.

Thanks. I have been really close to pulling the trigger on the 50-500.

CC is not a strap lol.... it,s a bullet proof west for paparazzi's :-)

Personally i would never use something like the CC,it looks stupid and draw way to much attention. I could Imagine coming to client with it...at
least i get some smiles...:-)

I use optech straps on all my cameras, comfortable and excellent quality.


Regards
Paul L.

it's like geek on steroids, lol but if it works for him then by all means. I'll buy one for $***t and giggles and see what my model's reaction on my next shoot. Too bad I only got 2 camera.

I use the detachable domke gripper. Love that I can have it on or off easily as a lot of the time I like having no strap.
