There was a thread about this gadget earlier, but I couldn't find it.
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/friidesigns/trilens-the-new-way-of-changing-your-lenses?ref=nav_search

I preordered it. If this works, I'm gonna use this on one hip and a Spider Pro on the other hip and leave the second body and everything else locked in the bag. Except I have yet to find a belt that will hold all my crap up.

I have really high hopes for this.

These things make me smile - they definitely fall into the pocket-protector, Inspector Gadget type of nerd photo accessory. You buy them in high hopes but then grow to hate them.

I prefer a load bearing vest over suspenders these days.

I would be banging that on everything, not to mention that a typical trio (12-24 or 16-35, 24-70/2.8 and 70-200/2.8) would be quite heavy.

Assuming you're being serious, look into a gun belt. There are plenty around and are made to hold up heavy loads.

I am serious. And I do appreciate the tip!

In all honesty I'll be putting two primes and maybe a zoom on the Trilens. Most of the time I will be using just two of the three available sockets.

I don't understand why so many of you guys are pooh poohing this thing. It's not going to protrude out of my hip any more than a DSLR on a Spider Pro, which I already like. The alternatives for carrying lenses around involve an asssortment of mini bags and fanny packs, which I really don't like.

I guess you will need to find out on your own. there is nothing like adding another level of complexity.

I think I prefer the Lowepro lens exchanger although it only carries one at a time but it gives you a place to securely rest the lens you're taking off while you mount the lens in it
