I have seen this come up in quite a few places now I would like to see how well it lasts long term and how people like it. If you get one I would love to see some better photos then what they have on there page. I like the idea of a card holder and a place for the cell phone.

I am expecting mine to show up in the next couple of weeks. I know their latest batch showed up and they are shipping but they have to fill their WPPI sales before they get to mine. They had such a great response they sold out very quickly.

So far I know several wedding and sport shooters using them and they love them. I ordered the RS-2, love the strap pockets where I can put my CF Cards, business cards and rather than a cell phone I can put in a spare battery...

I really wish I had more time to share with your guys, I have a number of prodcuts I would like to tel you about. Wireless Flash Triggers - http://www.smdv.co.kr/eng/index.htm
New Hyperdrive ColorSpace - http://www.hyperdrive.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=23
Plus a Wireless Shutter Release with 100meters of reach from Gadget Infinity.

I will share more when I can!

Take Care

I made my own, I am riding a HD while hunting pictures, so on my bike the cam (E1 or E3 depending my mood) is dangling on my right side while driving. Once I stop I can shoot instantly. The only restiction is the restart of the cam after go to sleep.

This strap also looks very useful as well.

Same kind of marketing by similarly enthusiastic "inventors" and manufacturers!

I have a DIY strap, which similar as the Y-strap or blackrapid, which is a belt made 2 loops, one across the shoulder as Y-strap and next hanging down from the shoulder, which balance the weight and can hook 2 cameras or 1 camera plus a tripod at the hanging down loop.

The Y-Strap is not this guys only product either. He has the NoPod also, so he isn't a one-off. He is also a working photographer with published book credits, so he knows a lot about the issues. Read about it in this thread discussing camera straps...
