PreOrder: Spider Holster - The SpiderPro Hand Strap

Crowdfunding and hand straps seem to be a hot commodity in the photography world these days. All these great products are launching on Kickstarter or IndieGogo with the help of crowdfunding and everyone is looking for new hand straps that are comfortable. Our good friends over at Spider Holster has just started their own crowdfunding (via tilt) for their new SpiderPro Hand Strap.

We reviewed the Custom SLR Hand Strap and it was comfortable and was our favorite. We also just reviewed the Peak Design Clutch Hand Strap which is also our favorite and took top honors but can the SpiderPro Hand Strap really be better than any other strap (as the claim)? Hopefully, we'll be able to get one and do a full review on the SpiderPro Hand Strap to see if it is any better.

Price for the strap is $55. For a colored strap, it would be $65. Estimated delivery is December 2014. In addition to the hand strap, there are bundles that also includes the BlackWidow, SpiderPro Holster. Both with or without the Spider Monkey. Bundle prices range between $100-200.

You can place your preorder HERE or continue reading for more information.

Indiegogo: SWIVIT PRO 360 Degree Multi-Position GoPro Mounts

We originally posted about the SWIVIT PRO back in April, which started on Kickstarter. Unfortunately, it didn't meet it's goal of being funded.

This time around, it's on Indiegogo and the funding for SWIVIT PRO has met it's goal. Jason's dream will come true and will be available to GoPro owners. In addition to the SWIVIT PRO, there are a few additional options and color.
