          Comments about Money Maker Two-Camera Harness (English Bridle, Tan, Regular):

          Holds my two pro bodies with prime and 70-200 lens but it does loosen every couple of hours. You really need to keep an eye on them. Also it's not easy to remove the cameras from the harness and I find myself removing the entire harness with the cameras attached when hopping in and out of cars. The extra black safety strap to support the cameras just gets wrapped around the pivot and can be really annoying as you have to untwist it to use the camera throughout the day.Saying all this, it's comfortable and discreet. Just be vigilant throughout shoot. I'll be using it as I'm used to being paranoid about straps failing anyway.

              Our only complaint so far is the reach in portrait position on the left camera. It's a bit short, although they do sell an extension.

              Comments about Money Maker Two-Camera Harness (English Bridle, Chestnut, Regular):

              I use the Money Maker for wedding and event photography where I need ease of access to 2 cameras at all time. Previously I had 1 black rapid strap and main DSLR on a OEM strap. Personally I'm not a big fan of straps of any kind. Yes, I shoot without protection. No accidents yet (knock on wood).The GoodThe Money Maker strap is sure to improve your image and reputation as a stylish professional photographer. If you want to be a instant bad*ss dual wielding shooter, then this product is for you. Very functional and simple to use as well.The Not so GoodCan be a bit squeaky during intimate moments. If you put this strap (brand new) over a black shirt you'll see tiny pieces of leather all over your shirt. Caution, clothing with heavy dies may stain the under side of the Money Maker Harness. Mine has a hint of blue from sweating through my shirt for several hours. Expensive. Stiff at first, takes a bit of time to break in.ConclusionPossibly the most luxurious camera strap.I would have gone with a darker color, perhaps even pay an extra $ for the burgandy. However I was very tempted to buy 2 leather belts and make this camera strap for less than half the price.I would recommend this strap for anyone who has already spent $$$$ on their camera gear, and has the need to be a dual wielding bad*ss shooter.

                Comments about Money Maker Two-Camera Harness (English Bridle, Chestnut, Regular):

                I LOVE THIS! One of the Best Camera Purchases Ive ever made. I mostly use this with one camera, and I like it so much more than my Rapid Strap, The B-Rapid is Great, but is too slippery, light and often slips off my shoulder. This Moneymaker Is Elegant, Stylish and More Functional, Does not slip & I feel much more confident using this.
                I agree with another reviewer, leather on the pull pins would be much nicer, But Definitely not a negative. Also I simply cannot fathom how this pull pin could pull out accidentally and drop a camera, These take some effort to pull out. This is not any easier than the B-rapid design to use but I like it more, and feel more confident with it, So much so, that I won't be using the included Safety leashes, Also Ive seen some photos of B-Rapid connector Ends broken off.

                  I am a hybrid wedding photographer (shooting both film and digital) and I purchased this since I am constantly needing two camera bodies (one film and one digital) and carrying them on their own straps was getting sloppy and frustrating. It is super comfortable, but can sometimes be confusing how to put it on correctly (note: logo should be on your chest facing the right way). The only reason I give this four stars is because my camera body came loose via the included attachment, but luckily I watched the video on their site, and they mentioned to attach to the secondary attachment as a "backup" - good thing I did! SO PLEASE ATTACH THE BACKUP JUST IN CASE!!

                  I gotta say i LOVE this product as much as i hate it! Its no doubt the most confortable, best looking, most practical strap i have ever used and i never shoot without it. I get complements on it at every wedding. I actually bought some nice leather shoes to match this straps lol
                  Now the BAD things:
                  For the price, i wish they had paid more attention to detail. The back side of the straps should be sealed so that my clothes dont get filled with little pieces of leather everytime i use it (well, after like 5 or 6 times it wont happen as much).
                  I HATE the fact that the metal hooks that hold the camera have a CHEAP black nylon piece used to open the hooks. Come on! I just paid $200+ for this, couldnt you guys spent an extra $4 in leather?!
                  Last but not least, after less than a month of use, those metal pieces make an irritating noize that specially priests hate me for! Inside the church i literally have to walk around holdint the cameras in my hands so that the strap doesnt make noize!
                  Would i recommend it? Yes, but i would never do it without alerting people about these irritating details!

                    Im a full time wedding photographer and I have been through countless straps trying to find the one that works for me the best. The Black Rapid dual strap had a tendency to slide off my shoulders at times since I am very thin. This strap stays on regardless of what I am doing. I shoot with a 1DX on my right side and a 5DMK3 on the other and even with the weight difference everything stays perfectly even on my shoulders. After long weddings my shoulders and neck do not feel fatigued either like they used to with other straps. I highly recommend getting the portrait sliders as they help out a lot too. Im 6ft and 140lbs and I use the regular size and with the portrait sliders attached I can wear a suit jacket comfortably with the cameras below the jacket and you would never know I was wearing a strap across my shoulders. Im actually going to be buying another one in a different color to coordinate with different suits I typically wear.

                      Makes life easier, but on weddings, sometimes you have to get yourself into small areas, walk down narrow stair cases, set up a wedding dress or detail shots. It's hard to set the camera system down, and poses a pain when you are going from shooting to setting up shots. I love how easy it is to shoot with two bodies and my flashes mounted. The belts never fit me (I'm a tiny girl), so this is a ggreat solution.

                      AMAZING product! Easy, hands-free and quick changing between cameras! The strap is extremely comfortable and I barely feel the weight of my 70-200 on my shoulders. Looks & feels professional. I received so many compliments on it as well.

                      My only issue is that the piece that attaches to the camera don't seem totally sturdy. I'm sure they are, but they just make me nervous. I had two BlackRapid mounts that are more robust, so I switched those out. They are larger and seem less likely to slip if the clip is caught and opened.

                      Recommend 100% to anyone shooting with more than one body.

                        I have been a wedding photographer for ten years and have purchased various straps ect. for my cameras. I bought this because I recently had thumb surgery and needed something sleek that would help me shoot basically one handed. I lOVE my money-maker it is extremely easy to use and is very comfortable. Usually after shooting events my neck and shoulders hurt, but with this holster design I have no pain after shooting for hours. Beautifully crafted as well. Functional yet totally fashionable!

                          Great quality in the build of the product. Makes cameras easily accessible, but feel secure against the side of your body when not in use...not scrapping on the floor or swinging around.

                          It's SO WELL MADE. The leather is smooth and comfortable. I get so many compliments about this.

                            The only complaint is that my 24-105L F4 will creep out as I carry it. No problem with the 24-70L II, it has a lock.

                            This is by far the most comfortable camera harness that I have used. I would give it 5 stars if it were not for the fact that it often catches on my shirt and occasionally even skin. Not a deal breaker in my case but still an annoyance.

                              I've only used it once so far, but it's a very comfortable way to carry around two cameras while walking/hiking. The only downside is that if you have a lens that is susceptible to lens creep, that may be a problem. My 70-300 was creeping out on my D300 while I was hiking with it.

                                  HoldFast makes the best camera strap I've ever used – hands down. I've used a bunch, but not because I like collecting straps; more because I've been trying for a long time to find a strap that doesn't make my back ache at the end of the day. I thought I found a strap that would serve me well in the long run when I picked up a couple of Black Rapid straps, but after a week with the BR flung across my shoulders, my back was sore again. The main problem for me is that I need at least two lenses when I'm out running around; the Money Maker solves that, by allowing me to carry two cameras in a fluid manner that actually helps me get along with my work. This piece of kit serves me VERY well in two specific situations; when I shoot weddings, I put a 24-70mm f/2.8 lens on one body, and an 85mm f/1.4 on the other. I don't have to change lenses (unless I'm shooting something really specific) or mess around with a painfully heavy sidebag or a cumbersome backpack. Pure bliss.

                                  When I am doing general travel work, just wandering about a town, I'll carry two bodies, and the 85mm and a 35mm f/1.4 with me. The weight is always distributed across my back and shoulders evenly, so I don't get pulled down to one side all day (my biggist complaint with even the best side bags). The Money Maker also looks amazing, and is crafted from incredibly high-quality leather. I get asked about it each and every time I put it on, and I'm more than happy to rave about HoldFast.

                                  Obviously there are cases where I need to be able to carry more equipment, but I'd say I am out with this strap on more than 70% of the time - which has made my body very, very happy over the last year.

                                  A few notes.
                                  - I was worried at first that the cameras would slide too much on the strap. They don't even, when I crouch down to shoot with one, and allow the other to swing free. They stay pretty close to my body (within reason, of course) at all times.
                                  - I have an attachment to clip a third camera to the front of the unit. I don't use it often, but it comes in handy when I need to clip a small lens/filter/misc. pouch to my kit.
                                  - The MM works great when you're only using one camera too, and I've found that it's handy for clipping all manner of equipment into that second spot; my tripod, lens pouch, light stand, etc. Really handy.

                                    I am a "semi-professional" photographer. By that I work a normal job and get photography jobs randomly. One of my regularly scheduled events is a conference 3 times a year that requires me to move around a large arena quickly, with heavier lenses, but without distracting the audience if at all possible. For years I strapped on two cameras with their own straps and it was just incredibly difficulty and strenuous on my neck. A year ago I started using the Money Maker by Holdfast gear and the difference was night and day. I can carry two cameras for 3-4 hours at a time and never feel fatigued. As well, I usually have a monopod on one of my lenses and the cameras hang where it doesn't bang around or hit others. As a female photographer, I can't imagine doing multi-camera shoots without it.

                                      I have yet to use a better product to carry DSLR camera rigs for photo and video. I bring my gear all around the world in different environments that require unique set-ups for both photography and video - and often both. The money make allows me to be flexible with one or two cameras and a variety of accessories. If that wasn't enough... I love the way it feels. Not just the comfort but the style. I've received so many compliments. It's a game changer. It's discrete, and yet it's classy and so it attracts the attention of people. Never a bad thing when you want to make a lasting impression. Gear matters and this is one vital piece to my arsenal. Love this company!
