Re: RX1 - accessories review

I've been looking at this since the Kickstarter funding stage. The fact that you can clip it around a belt instead of having to thread the belt through it is very appealing. However, I don't like the rigid way in which it holds the camera at a right angle to the clip.

The BW system uses a ball which allows the camera to find a natural position hugging your hip. It also allows the camera to more easily take unintentional bumps. The disadvantage is that there is a ball sticking out from the bottom of the camera that prevents sitting it flat on a table. This isn't much of a problem with a DSLR that has a nice big baseplate that can provide a stable foundation even if the entire baseplate isn't touching the table. I can see it being an issue for a small camera like the RX1.
