            No more swinging cameras!

                  Comments about Spider Camera Holster One Camera to Two Camera Adapter Kit:

                  While I think this system definitely has some CONS, I think the design, durability, function, and purpose of the spider holster earns the system 5 stars. I come from a background of using several of the sling type straps: sun sniper, carry speed, and the dual black rapid.

                  I use my spider system with my long lens (70-200mm) on the camera at my left (spider plate attached to the lens not the camera body) and my other camera at my right (with either the 24-70, 16-35, or a prime). To my left is my long zoom camera with the lens pointing behind me, when I grab this camera, I grab it by the lens barrel with my left hand, perfect because this is where my left hand needs to be when I shoot. To my right the camera is slightly easier to grab because the camera grip is always in my palm as soon as a reach for the camera. I like my wider lenses here because if a special moment unfolds in front of me I can quickly capture it wide - getting the whole story.

                  The following is my list of pros & cons for the spider holster system compared to the various sling systems I've used.


                  PROS:
                  1) Working weddings, I carry 2 pro camera bodies, both with heavy zoom lenses. This holster system keeps the weight on my hips. Using a sling type strap all that weight is on your shoulders straining your back as you run around for 10-12 hours, a royal pain.

                  2) When moving through a crowd, the spider system keeps both cameras close to my body, preventing them from swinging about as I walk. Not only does it give me a lower profile for slipping between wedding guests, this also prevents my cameras from swing about and bashing into guests. Furthermore, by having your gear more securely fastened to your body it won't swing out and damage furniture or smash into other things that might do damage to your gear. With the sling straps, I'm constantly restraining my cameras from swinging into things.

                  3) The spider mounting plate & holster ensure that the camera rests in a predictable orientation. Unlike sling straps where the camera is free to spin at my side, with the spider system I can always reach for each camera without looking and quickly have the grip in my hand. This is not the case with a sling style strap - especially when you're using a shorter prime lens. Often when using a short lens on your camera with a sling, the camera tends to lay with the camera back against your hip and the lens pointing away from the body (a long lens will usually point behind you, camera back facing forward). When this happens (because you're using a sling), the lens is where the grip normally is..... I often end up grabbing the lens and putting finger smudges on my glass.

                  4) When you bend over or kneel down using a sling type strap, your camera(s) swing in front of you making it difficult to use your hands to do much of anything. I found myself trying to trap my cameras behind me by pinching my elbows to my sides, this reduces the effectiveness of having arms considerably. This is particularly annoying if you lean over to get something from your gear bag or swap a lens. You now have two unruly cameras not only wanting to bash one another, but also trying their best to make you drop what ever your holding in order to prevent such a collision. Not only does the sling system prevent you from effectively and efficiently using your hands, when two heavy cameras pendulum like this it throws your balance off considerably too. With the spider, the cameras stay snug at the hips, keeping the space in front of you open to use your hands with out interference.

                  CONS:
                  1) While I like the weight on my hips rather than my shoulders, this set-up needs to be taken off to use the restroom & has been known to slowly pull my pants down!
                  2) If you kneel down with a flash on the top of a camera, the flash will hit the floor (I'm only 5'8" - maybe taller people won't have this issue).
                  3) Despite the spider always orienting the grip to the palm of my hand and making for a quick camera grab - returning the camera to the holster is about one second slower than when using a sling (where you just rapidly lower the camera, not concerned with camera orientation or the possibility of dropping $6K in camera and lens!).

                  Other notes: The articulating ball joint of the spider system is compatible with Speed Carry sling type straps. Useful if you want to switch back an forth between these styles of carrying your camera. Also, you can use the Speed Carry plate instead of the Spider plate - the latest plate for the Speed Carry has a ball head that folds down! You can set your camera down without that stupid ball getting in the way.

                  Conclusion: Next season I will be using both my double spider holster and dual Black Rapid sling together. I will holster the cameras any chance I get, so that I can save my back as well as prevent my gear from swinging about. When I'm in the heat of shooting I'll know I can drop my camera in a hurry and not have it hit the floor!

                    Comments about Spider Camera Holster One Camera to Two Camera Adapter Kit:

                    I have owned the single camera belt for about a year and I use it constantly so I have purchased the adapter kit to add the second camera. I find the belt is comfortable and my camera is secure and easy to access. Unfortunately I broke one of the buckles, and the team at Spider were very helpful in arranging for a replacement. Top product and excellent service, an all round winner.
