Whether you're shooting sports, weddings or wildlife, there are certain genres and situations that make carrying 2 or more fully-rigged cameras more practical than constantly stopping to swap lenses. That can make for some interesting juggling, precarious balancing and even some serious damage to you and/or your gear if the rig you're using to carry those cameras isn't correctly engineered. Fortunately, we know of a few that are designed and manufactured to hold your gear securely, let you access it easily and make you look good while you're doing your job. Here are our 3 favorite multiple camera rigs for your consideration.
This is one of the classiest multiple camera rigs we've ever seen and it's our first choice for several reasons. Created by a professional photographer and quickly becoming one of the best-known rigs in the business, the MoneyMaker is a full harness, designed for easy accessibility of 2 or 3 cameras, maximum security, and both comfort and good looks for you. You can actually see the quality in the manufacturing and you'll definitely appreciate it when you're trusting your gear and your reputation to it. Here are just a few of the main reasons we think serious photographers need this harness:
Take a look at the impressive looks and beautiful functionality of the MoneyMaker, here. We think you'll agree that it's the number one pick for the professional shooter in any setting.
For photographers who prefer not to "strap themselves in", our number two pick carries 2 outfitted cameras on one shoulder sling. It's also convertible to a single-camera sling with a stability strap. It's engineered to hold your cameras in a way that lets them glide freely along the adjustable straps, throughout a range that you set with easily adjustable limiting bumpers. On the down side, it's not going to look so awesome with your tux and you're going to experience more fatigue during long shoots.
It's a practical choice: Nylon straps and shoulder pad make the Yeti rugged, weatherproof and easy to clean. A patch of rubber mesh under the foam-padded shoulder helps keep it in place when you're active and sliding your cameras. The angled fasteners at the front and back of the shoulder let the straps hang naturally at your sides, without buckling or binding.
The Yeti is lightweight, durable, versatile and a good choice for active photographers that need to switch between two cameras quickly and don't mind a strap with a more utilitarian look. The Yeti Slim is identical in design and function, but features slimmer straps and a narrower shoulder pad for photographers with smaller frames. If you don't need to carry a third camera, prefer the feel of a shoulder sling over a full harness and don't mind a more casual look, take a look at the Black Rapid Yeti.
With the same lightweight, durable construction as the Yeti, our number 3 pick is a more conventional, utlitarian-styled double camera harness. It offers plenty of padding, the same fastening and gliding systems and all the security, in a full harness design. The extra bulk and more tactical approach to styling make it less suitable for formal events. There's also no provision for a third camera.
There you have it; our top 3 picks in multiple-camera carrying solutions.
