Is the Quikdraw easy to use?

Yup, it's super easy! The Quikdraw uses that same mechanical connection that your camera uses. If you have ever attached a lens to a camera you are ready to use the Quikdraw.
  • Step one - Get your glass out of your bag and get it ready for action!
  • Step two - Strap on your Quikdraw belt and load your glass. To load your lenses first make sure your Quikdraw is in the upright locked position (the new alignment marks will help with this). Once the lens is in the bayonet mount and you need is a simple twist of the wrist
  • Step three - Go rock your shoot with all your glass around your waist.

Use the Quikdraw Rather than digging through bags - With the Quikdraw all of your glass is ready to be deployed.
  • The Quikdraw is fool proof. Once you insert a lens and rotate it more that 5 degrees it's secure. It's impossible for the lens to become disengaged in the down position.
  • The Quikdraw keeps your lenses in the ready state - Lens cap and back cap off with the light hood attached.
  • With the Quikdraw your next lens change is within arms reach. Just reach down and grab the lens you want.
  • Change glass within 5 seconds and unleash your creativity.
  • Leave your backup camera in your bag and retain all your camera settings.
