| p.2 #9 · Strap with quick-release? |
You might want to check out https://peakdesignltd.com/. I utilize the Clip and should receive the Leash and Cuff next week. They have a couple videos on their website or on kickstarter.
Yeah, I grabbed that one as well.... and far from happy... The round things just do NOT stay in the clip on the hand strap and they are way too loose on the neck strap - they are just too easy to unattach with a slight tug in the wrong direction.... too bad because it looked like a great idea. I do like the belt clip (capture) for a small body camera - although the arca tripod thing is low tech and should be finished much better (right now I have an RRS plate, so I know that's not totally fair) and much lower profile then the spider.
I wonder if there is some sample variation in the tension of the spring-loaded part of the straps. I got my Leash and Cuff just before Christmas, and I'm pretty happy with the Leash so far. Haven't used the Cuff much. I use mine cross-body like my R-strap. I'd personally never use it as a leash with the Capture. It's actually a bit of a challenge for me to disengage the connectors from the strap, and I couldn't pull it out without depressing the spring part if I tried.
Things I like....
The connectors allow much more variation for attachment. I can leave 2 on a plate, and one in each lug so that it's easy to attach the strap even if I've forgotten the plate.
I can choose to use the wrist-strap as well and it takes seconds to swap.
Much much much less bulk than the R-strap in the bag. Significantly less weight. Material is strong but floppy and gets out of the way when shooting.
Designed to slide when I move the camera. The R-strap shoulder pad never stays in place, and I hate having to attach the armpit fix.
Things I dislike....
The strap is pretty narrow. Comfortable with a D600 and sub-100mm primes or small zooms. Wouldn't want to use the 70-200/2.8 on a D4. Actually, not sure if I'd want to use it for a full day even with a small DSLR setup.
Connector straps are thick and can be tough to install on some smaller cameras (like my Ricoh GXR).
