The black Double Sling from OP/TECH is for the photographer who needs access to two cameras in a hurry but does not want to have to stop, open his bag and take out the second camera. When time is of the essence and the shots are there, there's no time for fumbling around inside a bag trying to extract another machine. The Double Sling allows you to drape two cameras over your shoulders and have them at the ready.

The system hangs around your neck on a comfortable neoprene pad that distributes the weight of the two cameras quite evenly. You'll also find the balance is very good. And, if you ever want to use only one camera, there's no problem adjusting the strap accordingly.

Connection to the cameras is achieved via OP/TECH'S Uni-Loop Connectors that attach to the lugs of each camera. For the left camera, attach the Uni-Loop to the left lug while on the right you have a choice between using either the right lug or both if your camera offers you two lugs. Some cameras offer an additional connection area on the lower right side of the camera. In those cases, both Uni-Loop Connectors will be attached to the two side connection areas.

The Sling Adapter System used on the Double Sling can be removed and added to any other OP/TECH standard strap. This will create and over the shoulder sling strap. This flexibility of the Double Sling makes this a more-than-viable option to a traditional harness system.

U-shaped neoprene pad effectively distributes and balances the weight of two cameras while absorbing the shock of the photographer's movements

      I was looking for something that would allow carrying a rather large and very heavy (6 lbs) camera AND a lens case with an alternative lens. I was going on a tour + cruise (with land excursions) to Alaska, and carrying a backpack or even a tripod would have been very awkward. This sling worked very well, I had the camera with its large lens on one side, and attached the case for the lens to the other side (it had an alternate lens which was smaller than the one on the camera). The combined weight was in the 8 to 10 lbs range.With the double shoulder harness configuration I carried the camera and alternate lens all day several times and never experienced any stress on my shoulders. I also have a Black Rapid cross chest strap, and while it works well when only carrying a single camera it would not have been easy to carry the second lens, and its shoulder pad doesn't provide degree of padding this unit does.The only (minor) problem I had with this unit is that it could be somewhat awkward to get it on; fortunately my wife was there to assist. With some practice I believe this would become a non-problem.

      I tried this set-up, but it is just not for me. I give it three stars for good quality components, but to me the whole set-up is just utterly uncomfortable and I don't like how the cameras just dangle and bounce there on the sides. I'm back to the good old camera straps that were supplied with the cameras.

        Comments about OP/TECH USA Double Sling (Black):

        I use the single OP/TECH sling most of the time with one camera, so the double sling is perfect for when I want to carry two cameras. Uses the same attachments as the single sling, making it easy to switch. Great product.

              This double sling is very easy to use, light weight and has been holding a D610 with a 70-200mm and a battery grip and a D800 with a 24-70 very nicely. The cameras don't' shift around too much and the relief on my neck is enormous.

                I often carry two cameras (one with a wide angle and one with a telephoto). I have tried several products and systems for doing this. I am aware of the quality of OP/Tech products as I own others. The double sling carries two cameras in a position that makes them quickly and easily accessible while at the same time allowing the user to wear them for long periods without suffering discomfort. The sling is well made, easy to operate and very modestly priced, especially when compared with products from other companies that cost almost four times as much.

                  This product arrived the day before a wedding shoot, and so I wore it without any practice. First, it became a favorite accessory in the first ten minutes of use, but second - the darned thing wouldn't stay on my shoulders. Just look at the picture! It kept slipping off every chance it got. There's a simple remedy: Install a strap that goes across the chest that fastens and unfastens easily. I'll come up with one myself before using it again, but the manufacturer really should have caught this. Great price at $ bucks, even with this shortcoming. Also, the camera connections could use some more thought.

                  Comments about OP/TECH USA Double Sling (Black):

                  This sling solves a major problem for shooting events with 2 cameras. No longer do they collide when moving from place to place. Both cameras are ready and in reach at all times. Easy on the neck & shoulders. Compatible with other Op/Tech straps so you can switch back & forth between a single strap and this dual sling. Minor issues include that it takes quite a bit of adjusting the first time to get a good fit and easy reach. I do wish they used the pro loop connectors (but I have them on my single straps). Getting it on/off with cameras attached is not recommended. I shoot jazz musicians in performance at various clubs, and I have to be careful how I sit on my barstool with the sling on.

                        If you shoot weddings and events that require you to carry 2 camera's this is the system for you!
                        Am 5'3, female and so have had to shorten the length of the product considerably so the cameras don't hit the floor when I kneel down to take a shot.

                        I love the fact that the camera's are attached to the sling from the OEM attachment points with a quick release catch as opposed to the 1 point attachment from the underside of the camera! The most sensitive part of the camera is the "head" area if the other systems fail the camera falls directly to the floor on its most sensitive part. I much prefer this product as even if for some reason the attachment fails, the camera will drop to the floor as intended from the OEM standpoint. So in this area this product gets a BIG PLUS and I feel safe with the fact that there are 2 contact points holding it in place securely! Also the underside is free for a tripod quick release! unlike other systems on the market.
                        I like the fact I can detach a single camera quickly and easily and give it to my second shooter if necessary. The only complaint I have is that this product is clearly built for a tall big guy I wish there was a tad smaller size for women. Highly recommend this product for top value --- superior functionality and safety compared with other more expensive products at a price that is realistic and affordable. Nice job Op/Tech.

                          At the time, I couldn't fork out the $100+ for other options, but needed to have a dual camera strap. By chance, I came across this generously priced option and wanted to give it a try. I recently shot a wedding with two 60D's: one with the behemoth 70-200 2.8 and one with the 24-70 2.8. I never once questioned the reliability of this strap and felt safe and secure it would hold without moving around a great deal. This system also saved time when it came to tripod mounting, as I was able to keep a plate mounted to the camera. Great alternative to the pricey camera mount systems!

                              This really helps keep weight off my neck when I'm shooting events with two cameras. Can carry both cameras at sides, one at side and one on chest, or even two at sides and one on chest. Sliding action is smooth.

                                      Wish I had this earlier. It makes shooting with two (2) camera bodies a snap.

                                        Perfect for wedding shoots! Very comfortable! Very sturdy design. Nicely keeps cameras away from each other as needed. I would definitely recommend this product.. ESPECIALLY for the price!

                                          Wow what a difference this sling made on my neck and shoulders. I recently did a wedding and this came in handy with two cameras with different lenses. the only issue I had was figuring out how to attach the camera to the sling. Nice product for a nice price.

                                            I am a petite woman (just under 5') and it fits me just fine. I think my husband could also wear this comfortably. This was just what I needed to get the weight of my camera's off my neck and more onto my shoulders.

                                              I purchased this item for an up-coming wedding. I figure i'm going to want two cameras ready for me. But i started using this in the one camera configuration last weekend and i'm in love... It's so much better than hanging it over your neck.

                                                I was looking for something that would allow carrying a rather large and very heavy (6 lbs) camera AND a lens case with an alternative lens. I was going on a tour + cruise (with land excursions) to Alaska, and carrying a backpack or even a tripod would have been very awkward. This sling worked very well, I had the camera with its large lens on one side, and attached the case for the lens to the other side (it had an alternate lens which was smaller than the one on the camera). The combined weight was in the 8 to 10 lbs range.With the double shoulder harness configuration I carried the camera and alternate lens all day several times and never experienced any stress on my shoulders. I also have a Black Rapid cross chest strap, and while it works well when only carrying a single camera it would not have been easy to carry the second lens, and its shoulder pad doesn't provide degree of padding this unit does.The only (minor) problem I had with this unit is that it could be somewhat awkward to get it on; fortunately my wife was there to assist. With some practice I believe this would become a non-problem.

                                                  Comments about OP/TECH USA Double Sling (Black):

                                                  I bought this double sling after looking at the Black Rapid double sling. I did not like the BR fastening to the tripod mount for several reasons, including the fact I would lose my tripod mount, but primarily because I do not think this is the proper place to carry a camera from as it is not designed for that. Plus, I could buy 4 of the OpTechs for the price of one Black Rapid, and I think the OpTech is more comfortable and quite a bit lighter. Another good point is that I can unbuckle the sling parts and use them individually on my OpTech Pro strap pads, making the standard Pro straps into 2 Pro Sling straps! A very cool thing in my opinion. My original OpTech Pro strap is over 30 years old and still works as good as it did when I bought it, a testament to their build quality when you know how much I have put them through!
