For me, it's not always easy to move from tripod to device if I have to pull a device out of the bag. Sony becomes part of tripod. D&S might require quick release but it looks much less cumbersome.

BTW it's not that there's a right/wrong better/worse it's important to understand our work style and situation may drive the decision as to which device to purchase. This is why I look at these as categories.

In tummy support I'd compare the El Cheapo vs D&S. BTW the renown Phil Bloom did a promotional a while back for a company with an El Cheapo variant and he said he really liked it.

Basically it seems key difference in this class is
El Cheapo doesn't need the use of a belt.
D&S uses waist instead of tummy to avoid breathing.

I really do miss the equipment trade shows in the north east because I really like to try on things before making a purchasing decision. You just can't tell on the internet.
