found this being mentioned on Scott Kelby's blog. pretty interesting especially for event shooters.

wonder if CP is bringing them in. ;p

Yup..... click on the website, under - Dealers

CP bring them in..... A friend of mine is using one. Much better than using normal strap. But all I want is the 'FASTEN R' ..... the rest I can make myself :bsmilie:

Sorry... No. I didn't see it at CP itself, but the Website provided by TS said that CP is their dealer in S'pore. was just at CP's website..... but can't find any info :( Maybe have to go down in personal.

My friend brought his sometime back at the MO selection. I think he paid something like $70-$100 for the whole set. Not sure model 1 or 2 :think: But much more comfortable than those 'around' the neck type strap. Saw & try it in 'action' personally... :bsmilie:

But like I said..... I just want the FastenR. Already have a few Lowepro strap than I could convert into the strap.

I saw it at CP a few days ago near the bags section if I'm not wrong, no idea what's the price though.

CP-M or CP-P?

I know the MO was quite some time ago. Half a year at least?

Question: Won't this make shooting with my battery grip a total frustration / hassle with my right palm constantly having to press against the fastenR?

And the only thing RS2 is different over the RS1 is the pouch and card space, right?
