    One of the cool things at WPPI was so simple that you wonder why no
    one ever thought of it before. It is a camera strap that is like an R
    Strap, only it holds two cameras, one on each side. It is made by
    Camera Slingers. They were sharing a charity booth at the show and
    sold out all their straps; people constantly asked me where I got
    mine. Camera Slingers has a web site at www.cameraslingers.com, but it
    appears to be a placeholder only with no contact information.

    It looks like two R Straps attached to each other across the back of
    the shoulders. Unfortunately, from the back it looks like you are
    wearing a "mansierre" or "bro." Backwards. Ugh. Definitely high geek,
    not high fashion. You could hang a lens from one side if you do not
    carry two bodies. Like the R Strap, it attaches to the camera tripod
    mount. The camera slides up and down the front strap like a D ring on
    a zip line.

    Still, it was very functional and comfortable. In fact, it was less
    tiring than any single camera strap I have ever worn, as it puts
    absolutely no pressure on the neck and weight is evenly balanced on
    both sides. I was able to carry two bodies around the entire day
    without the usual pain in my shoulders and neck. Now, if someone could
    do something about my poor feet...

    Mine cost $95. I understand that after WPPI the suggested retail price
    will be $150. The only contact I have for them is a phone number:
    1-805-320-0104. They have a trade show discount. I suspect that they
    have completely sold out their inventory, though, so you might have to
    wait if you want one.

    That was my impression as well.
