    I'm debating getting one to replace my backpack for summer event work, I was curious how comfortable they are for long periods of use.

    im thinking about last setup

    thinkthank belt setup is highly recommended by thom hogan. I hate how it looks, but when im covering events there's no way around it, its simply the most convenient way to carry the gear
     



  3. Oh yeah? Well I heard about this flash attachment, if I get one I will always have perfect shots!! It's highly recommended by gary fong! :bowdown:




    But yeah the fannypack belt :mamoru:

    I woudlnt mind the modular setup though. :bigthumb:

    I recently bought the Thinktank rotation 360 and I love it.

    It can be used with just the fanny pack, which I found useful when I was traveling last week.

    The quality of the products is really good, so if you think the belt system is what you need, then I say go for it. I was thinking of picking up the belt and using the modular parts that i bought with my backpack on it.
     

  5. Pics of you wearing the fanny pack? I've never seen it on anyone but heard it's kinda awkward

    I'm guessing you like it then? That's one of the options I was looking at, or the steroid belt with add on pouches.

    Any thoughts on the pixel racing harness? I thought it might help to distribute and stabilize the load.

    yeah cause im sure someone like Thom Hogan who's actually a pretty damn intelligent person who makes some insightful commentary.

    Plus ive also talked to quite a few journalistic photography, modular belts are the way to go

    Dont have any pics of my fanny.

    But, I also thought it would be awkwark and heavy, but the way the pack is designed it was actually comfortable to wear while walking around.

    I kept a d70 with the 18-70, a 50mm and a small point and shoot in the pack. and in the backpack section I had small windbreaker, beanie and room for small things I purchased in japan and Taiwan.

    I throw my lenses in my cargo pockets with no front or rear cap like they're 3$ toys.

    I even put my sigma 100-300 f4 in my pocket once. They're surprisingly deep :eek3:
     
  14. Did that once with my 24-70 and 16-35. Then I found some lint and dirt on my mirror (lucky no dirt on sensor). So I went and found a better solution. :wiggle:
