    I'm going to get one of these soon: http://www.carryspeed.com/products/c...a-sling-system I'm paying for postage only as I pointed out a mistake to them on their website.
    But they're waiting a few weeks as I'm told they're bringing out an update.
    I've always been curious about their attachment plate with the offset attachment.

    Cruising around, waiting for a LR catoloug to backup and came across a OTT camera bag and sling system. Sort of appealed to a gadget geek like me.

    I bought one and ended up not using it for over year and then selling it. Can't deny that it was well made and did what they said and was well designed as a pack, but it was never quite the right bag for the job. Even though it's a bag and not a strap, you could clip the camera onto the shoulder straps and you could comfortably carry a camera with a large lens all day (except that it would be bouncing around and hitting you in a sensitive region).

    I've got some of this stuff now: http://www.thinktankphoto.com/catego...t-systems.aspx which complements it nicely.
    I am with Russ on this (maybe its a D300 thing?). A good neck/shoulder strap and the Think Tank belt system. I have gone with the Skin system and will never go back to a shoulder bag. I am not a large person (5'10", 72kg) but can comfortably carry a combination like 300/4, 180/2.8, 1.4xTC, 85/1.4, 17-50/2.8, 12-24/4 for some hours without getting a sore back/shoulder, sweaty back.
    Nikon D600 and a bag full of prime goodness..

    rjd, I use a cheap Phottix (I think) wrist strap I got at Photofans. Screws in to the tripod thread on the base. It has threads so you can then attach the whole thing to a tripod, but that's not very snug, so I'm always swapping them out.

    Well unimpressed with the capture systems QR plate for general use.

    It didnt seem to be able to hold my 7D and 17-55 in portrait on my tripod without a lot of slipping no matter what I did.

    So its relegated to infrequent hiking use now, and a pain to switch between QR plates. Now have a markins p7d for the 7D works ace.

    Got myself a Blackrapid RS-7 Strap today for $90. Wondering if anyone has gotten the Tripod plate screw and (http://www.blackrapid.com/product/hardware/fr-t1/) and knows if it will fit a Induro quick release plate?

    Any chance you could take a nice close up of the bolt side on?

    I'll try to remember, though not sure what more it will show you than the website.
