I put off buying something more then the standard neck strap for a while thinking it couldn't make that big of a difference. Finally after a crazy busy season I knew I had to do something or my neck wouldn't make it, I ordered the money maker not at all sure how I'd feel about it and after the first day using it I knew I'd never use anything else again. It exceeded my expectations in balancing the camera or cameras and my back and neck were pain free after the first 10 hour wedding I wore it at. What I hadn't expected is how great it would be to not have to worry about setting my camera down. Even with the old neck strap I'd have to put my camera down to adjust a brides dress, to set up a light, to show a model what I was looking for just to give my neck a rest. With the moneymaker bam, just let go... it took a while to get used to the freedom of it, but it's fabulous. The other unexpected surprise is all the compliments I get on it. From clients, guests at events and even other photographers, it just looks cool. We use the camera leash too, it's a great way to grab and go especially shooting personal work and taking the camera in and out of the camera bag, no more tangled neck straps and everything is all beautiful made in America leather.
