OpTech dual harness

I use this to carry two large bodies with 24-70 and 70-200 lenses during long event shoots:

OP/TECH dual harness

I've used the Black Rapid dual-camera system, too. For event work, I prefer the OP/TECH dual harness for these reasons:

(1) There is no concern about putting heavy loads on the tripod sockets.

(2) There is no concern about dropping a camera if any single connector fails.

(3) There is no concern about connectors coming loose.

(4) The cameras are more stable against my body when I'm walking around -- which is really important when shooting in crowded venues.

(5) It's much easier to use this system with a tall flash bracket, as the camera remains upright when not in use. I can drop the camera/flash/bracket rig to my side without having the flash risk hitting the ground.

I find the OP/TECH system very comfortable for extended shoots. It's also very reasonably priced.
