It is very well designed and the crossbody meant the camera didn't feel near as heavy. LOVED IT!
Was it hard to connect your camera On it?

THIS!!! It's amazing. Your hands are free while the camera hangs at the side of your body. It's pefect if you're pushing a stroller/wheelchair. We use this ALL THE TIME with our Nikon D3000.

Nope. It goes into the Tripod screw area

The Rapidfire looks amazing! I think that will be DH's father's day present this year to use with his Nikon D90

DH carries a Nikon D90 and I carry a Nikon L120. I love that the L120 can take HD video which saved the day at Christmas this year when FIL's video camera stopped working.

The CM's with the characters had no trouble using DH's Nikon and the pictures he took were amazing.

Take the best camera you own because you can't go back a retake pictures.

Is it comfortable for women to wear?

I am a woman and bought the model that designed for women. I am 5'4" and just about 20 lbs overweight so you get the idea. It's GREAT! So much better then any strap I have ever used around the neck or even tried to wear cross body.

Really do recommend it!

Our first cruise I took my Canon 40D everywhere with me, but like you said, the DSLR is heavy. Took that and my Canon PS on our next cruise, wore the PS around my neck w/a Mickey strap the entire trip and took a lot MORE pictures this way.

For our upcoming trip, I am taking my Sony NEX. All the advantages of a DSLR w/ about 1/2 the weight. I'm so looking forward to it! I will take my PS too.

Last Alaska cruise - Canon Rebel, Canon Video Camera, daughter's P&S Canon, son's old Olympus, & 2 prs of binoculars.

This trip 2 DSLR's, VC, 2 P&S cams, & 2 prs of binoculars. And still won't take enough pictures. I was looking through the pictures from the last cruise thinking "that's not what it looked like."
