Review: Peak Design POV Kit for Capture Camera Clip

Discount: As a follower of 1KIND Photography, you are eligible for a special 10% discount on ALL Peak Design products. Details are at the end of this review!

Overview : The Peak Design P.O.V. Kit turns any Capture Camera Clip into a point-of-view video mount. The kit is made up of three main components: an adapter plate, a J-Arm and a point-and-shoot plate. The adapter plate locks into your Capture camera clip and has a multi-prong hinge connector that is the attachment point for the J-Arm or point-and-shoot plate. The J-arm allows you to attach any GoPro Hero camera and enables the GoPro to be adjusted up-and-down and side-to-side by adjusting the thumb screws.

The point-and-shoot plate connects the adapter plate to any slim bodied point-and-shoot camera with a 1/4"-20 tripod thread. It allows you to shoot point-of-view video or carry your point-and-shoot camera in a low-profile manner by folding it flat against your body.

Note: This item requires the Capture or CapturePRO. It is not a stand-alone product.

Features :
  • Works with all versions of Capture: P.O.V. Kit works best with Capture v2 and CapturePRO, but can also be used with original Capture units.
  • Includes J-Arm for GoPro®: Allows for mounting any GoPro® Hero camera.
  • Includes point-and-shoot adapter: Take P.O.V. video using your point-and-shoot, or carry your point-and-shoot more comfortably with Capture.
  • Lifetime guarantee from Peak Design.

Kickstarter: GoPlug - Powered Bags

Ever been on vacation, at the airport or out in public and don't have access to an outlet or charger? Josh Cross has brought some sweet products to Kickstarter. GoPlug has products ranges from a pouch with USB cables to a computer bag to a camera backpack to a camera roller case. But these aren't your ordinary bags or rollers. They have built-in battery powered outlets! You can charge your camera battery, cellphones, tablets to powering your laptop. It even features a charging pass-through which means you can charge the bag as well as your device at the same time.

It uses a 12v LiPo battery (replaceable) and is waterproof. There's even a extension cord to allow you to charge the battery. He's taken it on to planes and it has passed TSA checks. He is in the process of getting it TSA approved.
GoPlug has redefined what a bag should be. Charge ALL of your devices, CAMERA BATTERIES, LAPTOPS, and more on the go.

GoPlug Redefines The Standard For What Bags Should Be

Smart technology needs to be handled in a smart way, and that is just what GoPlug has done. We have taken the most commonly used bags and enabled them to work with your devices to keep you connected and keep your electronics fully charged. The GoPlug baggage set is the world’s best "smart" bag.


The GoPlug baggage set is not just an ordinary set of bags. It contains its own battery pack that allows you to charge your electronic devices, even if you are not near a power outlet.

The built-in battery has the capacity to charge your smart phone up to six times, and your tablet up to two times, and doubles the life on an average laptop on a single charge (results vary). So, whether you are on the plane, in a car, or sitting in a waiting room, you will never have to worry about losing power.

Whether traveling for business, giving a presentation, or just working and playing from home, the GoPlug bags will make your busy life easier.

"Are GoPlug Bags waterproof?"

Yes! We've taken serious consideration with each component of the bags. From the zippers to the power button, everything is waterproof. Although your electronics will be protected from moisture, I would not use the bags as a floatation device or submerse them in water. Exposure to rain/sleet/snow is not a problem.
