In terms of handsfree options, how comfortable are these camera belts from this company when you have 2 cameras on your side?

Just another gadget… I wouldn't go for it.


Light is free… capturing it is not!

The Spyder Holster works very well. You'll see Sue Bryce use one in her classes on Creative Live, for example, and she seems quite comfortable.

The challenge for men, I think, is in the hips. The weight of the camera is going to drag on your belt/pants, so that has to be accounted for. I am still adjusting mine to get an optimal fit; it would certainly help if my waistline were a bit smaller, to be honest. But once I have it on, I like it very much. The camera is quite secure. The locking system is very simple to manage with one hand, so the only real concern is being careful with your camera once free of the holster (which is just business as usual).

The system is not a gimmick, and has many fans.

You might also consider a shoulder strap system like a Cotton Carrier or a Moneymaker.

My gear is too heavy for these things, but a mirrorless system would have me looking closer at the holsters....

Why so serious?

I use with the single camera set up, and it's amazing.  I'll just leave it at that.

As long as your belt is thick, it's comfortable.  When thin, it gets painful fast.
