Didier I belong to that group of strange people who find loading a Leica easier than a conventional rear loader. I have the camera on the strap around my neck, I flip it upside down so that the lens is against my body and loading is very easy. I put the base in a trouser pocket while I'm changing the film - If I'm using the Rapidgrip the base hangs in the pocket. On the other hand I find the strap is always getting in the way when I try to change films on a back loader.
