Sekonic does not play nice with Canon RT so I carry my STE3 around with me when I shoot in M. I use it to fire the flashes by pressing the test button. I can shut the other flashes off and work at one at a time at each location.

I cut up one of the mini stands, used a BR connector and Optech strap. I tried a generic mini stand but it was hard to lock and I did not want to damage the rubber. I just purchased a replacement stand from Canon.

While I take sports photos at soccergames, I tend to shoot a lot of photos. For that matter I want quick access to a second CF card. Often I was searching in which pocket I kept that card. It took too much time to look for it and take it out from my pocket
Then I bought a bag that came with an interesting accessory....and it was perfectly made for holding a CF card AND could be attached to the camera strap.
I wonder why they don't sell it separately. I would buy another one or two.

I think this is a very good idea for any camera that does not have a tilt/flip LCD screen and Surapon as usual is the master of coming up with such gadgetry ... here is a link to his thread on how he did it:

You should go into business and sell those. Designer colours, etc.
