Wow, you guys are harsh. Use what you like and what works for you and your requirements. Some of us carry one camera, some 3 or 4. We also all have our own style for carrying and using our gear that makes us most comfortable.

The idea is to have gear that does not hold you back and performs when requested too. The photographer is where the creativity, skill, and results ultimately come from.



Which is why I said this...

I won't say anything about someone elses carry solutions, to me if it gets the job done for you that's all that matter. My personal opinion from experience tells me that I will never use straps again. That doesn't mean you can't use straps and love them, go for it, if it works I don't knock it.

Shhh, it's a secret. I wasn't actually at the arboretum, I was getting ready to sneak up on Osama and take his picture. But now that you know that I have to kill you.

And my original post stands...Straps suck

...actual straps are old news, and they suck compared to what the CC offers (just my educated experienced opinion)...



sorry if I made your strap cry.

Oh you didn't make the strap cry, you made me cry. I cried (tears of joy and laughter) after watching your youtube clips as well as the official CC clips.

Quite similar expression (blank) and for some reason you both burst your cameras like they are machine guns..:lol:

Ok, thanks for your response.

BTW, if I wanted to be ignorant I could have made a "hooters" joke.

Okay, I understand, but maybe next time you should choose your wording a bit more carefully. Simply coming out with a statement that makes someone think you're making comments about being fat, to me that's ignorant. Next time make sure you don't make that mistake.

As for it acting like added weight, you don't really feel it much, the weight is around the waist belt, and not on your shoulders, so any weight you may feel isn't uncomfortable. I actually don't feel the weight of that gear much at all to be honest, never gave it much thought. When I carry just the gear on the Cotton Carrier anyway, with the backpack on I feel the weight of the backpack more than the weight of my gear on the CC. The most you feel is the compression of the waist belt around your body, and that really doesn't do much for adding any discomfort.


I wish it'd act like ankle weights or a weight vest, then maybe I wouldn't be so fat. :D

But then I'd get offended because I'd think you were talking about my hooters, and not the Hooters waitress.


She is purtty though, isn't she...

Pretty no doubt, Im not so sure the images make her justice though.

#1 Racoon eye's

#2 Those legs belongs to the women with the upper body tan that match. (i suspect it's your selective pp that is at fault ?)

I think I'll stay on topic and show off my strap Lest I post up a jock strap, or talk about G-Strings. bw!
Made it myself and it didn't cost a dime. It hooks into a harness, which is a task in progress. Worked out downright nice, as the lens and camera nestle against a lens case on my belt when it hangs, thusly it doesn' jostle around while I walk. The strap is short, which also helps to keep it in place when it hangs. Wasn't planning on this, but when I have my 70-200 hooked up there is a tension on the strap when shooting, turns out that it helps immensely to steady the camera.

Apologies for the slight topic derail. The raccoon eyes I can deal with, it's easy to fix in processing. However, I didn't feel it really overwhelmed the shot so I left it as-is. The "tan" legs is due to the girls having to wear nylons, and a lot of the time they come out way to dark in photos. Haven't quite got the processing for nylons fingered out yet.

Or you could attach a pop up reflector to the CC im sure there is rooms somewhere..:-)

The nylons would explain the odd looking legs for sure, if it look as bad in reality as in the photo i feel sorry for the girls. Is there a reason why ? I mean the whole purpose of hiring these girls are to show them off, why hide their legs ?
