"RE: Carry Speed FS-Slim strap with F1 foldable plate and D600"

Carry Speed recently came out with a Sling Pouch which looks kinda cool but I already have a Think Tank Digital Holster 20 v2 that I like. Up till now I hadn't actually used it with the sling because of the way the F1 base plate is oriented. In a normal installation the large sling connector would need to get stuffed into the holster and would certainly scratch the camera or lens or both.

Then I go to thinking, what if I reversed the mounting of the F1 Plate?

As you can see above the reversed plate mounts just fine and while it doesn't provide for the signature Carry Speed side hanging of the camera, it works just fine while the camera is a bit less stable on your hip.

So by reversing the F1 plate the connector is sticking out the back of the camera and it allows for the camera to be loaded into the Digital Holster for those times when you want to put the camera away.

Notice that I'm using a dress belt for my Digital Holster. I'm having a hard time deciding which belt to buy...any suggestions will be appreciated.
