Hi Andy,

I thought the same about how quickly you can bracket by just flicking your thumb
and after a few times it almost can be as quick and easy as a aoto-bracket

But I'll stick with the motors when they become available as not having it on
the R8 is just driving me crazy.

hand-carrying. >>>>

For sure as it has always been a "security blanket" for me the way I charge
around some tmes.  Besides it just gives a very secure feeling when shooting at
slow shutter speeds.

And if anything the strap is an unfortunate loss.
