    Lens Flipper for Canon EF-Mount Lenses is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleased for starters My first use was shooting an action packed corporate event, changing between my Canon 24-70 2.8L and 70-200 2.8L. Once I overcame the fear of one detaching and took my constant hand off, there were no issues - even with it swinging around. I agree with others that in a dark room it is hard to see the alignment dots and I too will enhance those marks. Best option yet for working with two lenses.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Could use a few improvements I was so excited to receive this product after seeing it at the photo expo. During the demo, exhibitor could change lenses in under 2 seconds! When I received the flipper I attempted to attach 2 lenses on the device and noticed it was hard to see the dot to line up my lens. The dot mark is light gray and if you are older than 20 with declining vision, it takes a while to find the attachment location. I took care of that by placing a drop of red nail polish on the gray dot so it can be seen better for faster attachment/removal of the lens. OK, so that was an improvement. Next, I find the strap is so lightweight is flimsy that it gets tangled in my backpack and Black Rapid strap. I am still trying to find a better way to wear this gadget. But on the upside it is a great way to carry an extra lens and switch it on and off the camera in a clean safe manner. I am sure there will be improvements on this product in the next generation of Flippers.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Ingenious Lens Connector, Chanager & Flipper I work photographing high-rise construction. Safety is paramount. I always felt that swapping lenses could be an issue, a routine process that's just a bit vulnerable in a dusty and unpredictable construction zone. I must maintain control of my gear at all times.With a bit of practice, and my adding a red dot on the exterior of the connector, I have made my field photography process safer. I also add a camera body cap to the Lens Flipper when I'm not actively using it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Step In The Right Direction I have watched videos of fast lens changes, with the most appalling being tossing the lens into the bag with no lens cap, and exchanging it for another cap-less lens. I want to be able to change lenses fast, but I am in no financial position to be so careless with my equipment. Enter the Lens Flipper. Prior to purchasing this I watched a few videos of the fast lens changes with the Lens Flipper. Now that I have owned one for a few weeks I have enough experience with it to say my actual lens changes vary between 18 and 22 seconds. I may be able to shave a little off of that with more experience, but I would not expect to get much better than 15 seconds. The procedure I follow is ensure camera is off, remove lens from camera, install lens onto Lens Flipper (making very sure lens is locked), remove stored lens from Lens Flipper (making sure I depress the correct button for that lens), install onto camera body, and power camera back on. When you think about it, a 20 second average speed isn't too bad to ensure you exchange your expensive lenses safely. I think the main area I need to improve on is finding a way around the interference I encounter with my 70-200 zoom with lens hood attached. I also think the problem lies within the strap. I am currently experimenting with incorporating the provided strap with a dual Black Rapid strap and find a bit of improvement with that method. I don't have an answer to the strap problem, just a feeling that a simple fix or modification is within reach of someone smarter than I am. In my opinion the only thing faster is to carry a second identical body loaded with a second lens. I can't afford that...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Where have you been! Without the cashflow to own two top flight bodies, I can't count the number of shots I've missed shooting travel photos because I had to drop my bag and switch lenses. This thing is amazing. While it does take some skill to get fast, just using it twice i know it will change my life.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yes. I'm super excited by the convenience of easily carrying 3 lenses at once without bogging down more weight with bags to carry. I use it with my Money Maker camera straps with my camera on the left and the flipper on the right. Right now it's a bit awkward to change lenses, but I have only used it twice thus far, and I imagine it will be super fast once I'm used to it. The two negatives that I have noticed thus far are how unsafe it feels to carry a lens without a hood and/or a lens cap, and having to take off the lens cap every time I switch is a little bothersome. Seems a bit pricey for what it is, but that's everything in the photo world typically. The bigger issue for me is that The 2 release buttons are so close together and aren't parallel to each other that more than once I almost released the wrong lens. Seems like an easy fix if they design little white arrows to point to the lens that they are associated with. Or design them right next to each other so 2 release buttons are visible at one time. I'm just going to draw some arrows on mine.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good The strap and metal strap connection feel a little flimsy for the weight of a 70-200 2.8L lens. I will hold that heavy lens, but I haven't used the Flipper enough to feel 100% on that point. I have only used this indoors for event. If I was taking a hike I would like a cap to put on the open side of the flipper to keep out dirt. I tried used a camera body plastic cap but it doesn't lock in. Perhaps GoWing will add this in the future. Or. perhaps I'm a little compulsive about dust etc.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy I use it for shotting in a live theatre... very handy... however since it's dark it's hard to see the lens alignment red dot... I think I'll use a paint pen to make it more obvious... videos on their website illustrate the ease of switching... device helps curb the desire to set a lens down on something, inevitably instable, when switching lenses... good buy... I also leave the lens hoods on... helps absorb bumbs when the whole contraption swings around abit...
