Kickstarter: Alpine Labs Pulse



We were informed of a new Kickstarter project known as Pulse from Alpine Labs. This is Alpine Labs 3rd Kickstarter project. Pulse is the most powerful way to control your camera from your smartphone. Pulse plugs into your DSLR or Mirrorless camera's USB port, so whether you're shooting photos, time lapse, or video, you get complete creative freedom - remotely from your smartphone - with your current camera.


As of this post, there is about two weeks left to the campaign. The Early Bird ($69) has sold out but you can still purchase the Pulse for $74. That's a $25 savings from the retail price. It ships in April 2016. If you want it sooner, you can be a Beta Tester which would get you the Pulse by February 2016. However, this set you back $350. But like any crowdfunding project that shipping time frame can happen or if something happens during production or manufacturing, this can push the deadline back.



Continue reading for more information.

Light & Powerful
Pulse's strength comes from its 100' bluetooth low energy radio, advanced USB control software, and a beautifully designed interface. We wanted a product that could handle your biggest project ideas - from day-long time lapses to your next backpacking trip. Because of its size you can take Pulse anywhere, and thanks to what it can do you'll never want to leave it behind.

Wireless Image Preview
With image preview you can view thumbnails on your phone right after you take a photo, at a range of up to 100 feet. Whether your camera is sticking out a 5th floor window or you're warming up while it braves the cold, Pulse has you covered so you can still get the perfect shot.

Compatible with Canon & Nikon
Pulse plugs into your camera's USB port and is compatible with just about any Canon or Nikon DSLR, and the Pulse app is free for both iPhone and Android devices. Want to confirm that your camera is compatible? Check the FAQ page.

Want Pulse to work with your Sony camera?! So do we! See the FAQ for the full explanation.

Trigger Remotely
Whether you're part of the shot, or not, there are a lot of times where it is just nice not to have to stand behind your camera. With Pulse, you can set up your camera and trigger it from anywhere in the room. Pulse's Bluetooth connection allows you to roam as you need to and gives you a range of up to 100 feet from your camera.

Capture the Night
Shooting in low light requires you to keep your camera absolutely still. Pulse makes it easier than ever to get the shot you want, and allows you to leave your shutter open for up to several hours, or as little as a few seconds. In long exposure mode you can either lock the shutter down manually and then release it, or set the exposure to a timer and just let it count down until it is finished.

And don't worry! The light on Pulse blinks before it takes a photo so that it won't mess up the lighting of your shot, and you can always turn it off or dim it if needed.

Take Better Timelapse
We've spent the last 4 years making the smartest time lapse products on the market. Pulse builds on all of our previous work, and makes time lapse easier than ever for first timers whilst expanding the features and level of control for experienced shooters.

One of the biggest issues with traditional triggers is the inability to know when things have gone wrong. With Pulse's USB control your camera will get every single frame, and the app will let you know about problems (like low battery or buffering time) before they ruin your shoot.

Start & Stop Video
Most remote triggers only let you do one thing - take photos. Because Pulse plugs into your camera's USB port and not the trigger port, it has the ability to let you control video as well.

Control Multiple Cameras
Pulse allows you to control up to three Pulse-equipped cameras at once - all from the same smartphone. This is especially useful for independent film makers or really anyone who has more cameras than they have camera hands. With Pulse, you can be everywhere at once and make sure you get all the right angles for your shot, even if you are just a crew of one.

Timelapse the Sunrise
Pulse's Exposure Ramping features allows you to ramp your ISO and shutter speed so that you can capture day-to-night transitions (the "Holy Grail" of time lapses) without having to touch your camera. We've designed this feature specifically to work with LRTimelapse.

Unlike shooting in Aperture or Shutter Priority, Exposure Ramping keeps your camera in manual so that your photo's EXIF-Data is written properly for LRTimelapse workflows.

Kickstarter: Custom SLR Slim Strap - Minimalist Leather Camera Strap



Our good friends over at Custom SLR has just kicked off their 6th crowdfunding campaign with a versatile camera strap with quick-adjust slider and genuine leather. This strap is called the Slim Strap. It's great for mirrorless, micro four thirds, and compact cameras.

If you haven't heard about Custom SLR, like most small startup companies, they go to Kickstarter. All five of their previous projects were successfully funded. Custom SLR has made a name for itself in creating comfortable and innovative camera straps, from their Glide One Strap (ranked Best in Test by Advanced Photographer Magazine) to their Air Strap (which reached 880% of its funding goal on Kickstarter).

The Slim Strap is a minimalist leather camera strap. Its features include:
  • Genuine top grain leather on the shoulder pad, strap connectors and thumb loop.
  • Quick-adjust slider: Camera stays cinched securely at your side; to quickly snap a photo, just pull and slide.
  • Lightweight and compact: Its slim design make it perfect for photographers needing a lightweight yet comfortable strap solution.
  • Great for mirrorless, micro four thirds and compact cameras but also compatible with all cameras including DSLRs.


Early Bird special is starts at $27. You can also purchase bundles that include items such as C-Loop Mini for as low as $45 up to $300 which includes Slim Strap, C-Loop, M-Plate Pro, ProDots and dinner.

Bye Bye, Bulky Camera Straps

This one's for the adventurers. The explorers. The ones who dare to do things differently. You don't need another bulky camera strap holding you back. You need a lightweight strap that makes capturing life's moments effortless.

Introducing the Slim Strap, a minimalist sling strap made for mirrorless, micro four thirds, and compact cameras (also works great for DSLRs). Premium leather, low-profile black, and a unique quick-adjust slider make this a classy strap you'll be proud to wear.

Genuine Top Grain Leather

The Slim Strap features genuine top grain leather parts: On the shoulder pad, strap connectors and thumb loop. As time passes, the leather will conform more to the contours of your shoulder. The older it gets, the better it gets.


Quick-Adjust Slider

Never miss a moment. The Slim Strap keeps your camera cinched securely at your side; when you need to take a photo, just pull the leather loop and slide to quickly bring your camera up for the shot. The leather shoulder pad never leaves your shoulder.


Lightweight and compact

On the road and on the go, the Slim Strap is lightweight, compact, and ready for any adventure.

High-Quality Craftsmanship

The Slim Strap webbing is seatbelt grade; the material is smooth and durable. Genuine Duraflex buckles and micro loops quickly and securely attach to any strap mounting point. The Slim Strap is sewn together with the perfect combination of stitches.

Minimal Branding

No flashy logos here. Keep it classy with the sleek black of the Slim Strap.

Review: Peak Design Field Pouch Wearable Accessory Pouch


Review Peak Design Field Pouch

[success headline="DISCOUNT"]As a follower of 1KIND Photography, you are eligible for a special discount. Details are at the end of this review![/success]
Overview : Every good bag needs a wing-bag. The Field Pouch is an expanding pouch for cords, accessories, batteries, hard drives, and even mirrorless cameras and lenses. Keep it in your bag, wear it on your belt or attach any Peak Design strap to turn The Field Pouch into an ultralight sling bag. With an expandable roll-top design, a waxed outer shell and felt inner padding, The Field Pouch can safely hold and organize all of your odds and ends. It also includes an attachment point for Capture, making it an ideal bag for carrying mirrorless setups.

Features :
  • Four internal stretchable pockets
  • Adapts to all sorts of gear
  • Organize items of all sizes
  • Anchor Link attachment points so you can use it with Peak Design straps
  • New zippered pocket to keep valuables secure
  • Double velcro closure
  • Belt loops on the back for hands free carry
  • Attachment point for any Capture Camera Clip
  • Weather resistant

Quality/Usability : Peak Design has entered the bag market with their Everyday Messenger bag which launched on Kickstarter. In that process, the Field Pouch was born as well.


The pouch is a worthy side-kick to The Everyday Messenger or as a stand-alone. It's the perfect size to be your on-the-go ultra-light setup. Nothing else is included other than the Field Pouch and two anchor links that can be used with the Peak Design Slide, Leash or Cuff.

If you're not using the anchor links, you can tuck them inside the Hypalon to hide them. And when you need to use them, just pull them out.


It comes in two colors: Charcoal or Heritage Tan.


The stitching all around the bag are clean and perfectly sewn. No loose threads.


The flap contains two small velcro pieces that attaches to the bag. So no matter how packed your Field Pouch is, it will still close since the velcro is pretty much the entire heigh of the pouch.


This is the view of the interior looking in. Towards the front are two pockets with a zipper enclosure. On the back side of it are four additional pockets; two of which are stretchy mesh pockets.


The images you see above is with the bag flipped inside out. You can see how stretchy the mesh pockets are. I have a GoPro 3+ Black Edition in there and it fits perfectly fine. You can use the field pouch to hold your phone, money, ID/credit cards, mirrorless camera and lenses You can also carry other small stuff: cords, chargers, battery packs, hard drives, chapstick, band-aids, handcuffs...you get the point.


As mentioned in the beginning of the review, you can attach Peak Design straps to the Pouch and it becomes a sling/shoulder bag ideal for a short excursion. With rugged seatbelt style belt/carabiner loops on the back, The Field Pouch can hang from any belt or bag.


You can also attach a Capture on the front Hypalon strap and it becomes the perfect excursion bag for you and a mirrorless/point-and-shoot camera.

Conclusion : Overall, the Peak Design Field Pouch Wearable Accessory Pouch is a nice pouch that takes the same material and quality as the Everyday Messenger bag. If you own or plan on purchasing the Everyday Messenger bag, the Field Pouch goes perfect with it. If not, the Field Pouch is also great as a stand-alone pouch.

The Field Pouch is not only great for holding your camera gear and accessories but even when you want to go light and just want to use it to hold your phone, wallet, keys, etc. whether its for a walk or for a trip/vacation.

I've used the Field Pouch for when I'm on a business trip to hold all my accessories and when I'm out with the family to hold my keys and wallet.

Review: Peak Design The Everyday Messenger 15 Bag


Review Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag

[success headline="DISCOUNT"]As a follower of 1KIND Photography, you are eligible for a special discount. Details are at the end of this review![/success]
Overview : A premium day-to-day essential carry workhorse, The Everyday Messenger is for photographers, travelers, commuters and everyone in-between. It’s more than just an innovative camera bag, it’s a giant leap for bag-kind. Patent-pending MagLatch™ closure. Origami-inspired FlexFold™ dividers. Weather resistant shell expands and contracts to hold a lot or a little. Dedicated Capture clip attachment points and front access panel designed for photography workflow. Hyper-adjusting internally padded seatbelt strap allows use as messenger or shoulder bag.

The Everyday Messenger was launched on Kickstarter in the Summer of 2015 and it quickly became Kickstarter's most successful bag ever (raising over $4.8 MILLION).

Features :
  • Brand new patent-pending MagLatchTM operates blindly, securely and with 1 hand.
  • Origami-inspired FlexFoldTM dividers are made of high-density foam, and fold/flex around camera gear, eliminating dead space found in traditional camera bags.
  • Shell expands and contracts (13.5L to 20.5L) without losing shape.
  • 2 dedicated Capture clip attachment points for fast exterior camera access.
  • Front access panel allows fast external access to smaller accessories.
  • Top zip allows latch-less access to main compartment.
  • Converts from messenger bag to low-slung shoulder bag.
  • Quick adjusting 2-inch padded tubular seatbelt-style strap.
  • Removable waist strap for load distribution and stability.
  • Optimized for all photography kits, up to a full-frame DSLR with 3 lenses and accessories.
  • Equally optimized for everyday carry and use by non-photographers.
  • Dedicated 13-15” laptop pocket with tablet/document sleeve.
  • Color-coded internal pocket layout designed around photography workflow.
  • 2 side pockets for quick access to water bottles and smartphones.
  • Weather resistant waxed shell with high-density padding.
  • Premium water resistant exterior zippers.
  • Hypalon-reinforced and bar-tacked stress points.
  • Lifetime warranty from Peak Design.

Quality/Usability : When Peak Design released their popular Capture Clip, people asked them to make a hand strap. They listened and released the Clutch. But there was one thing missing in their arsenal which was a camera bag and of course, people were asking when Peak Design will release one.

I'm happy to say that Peak Design has FINALLY entered the bag market with their Everyday Messenger bag which launched on Kickstarter (with the help of Trey Ratcliff). Not only is it one of the most popular bags on Kickstarter but it's also the most funded at over $4.8 million.

The Everyday Messenger is not just a camera bag, it's an everyday bag. And since no two days are quite the same, the shell was designed so that it expands greatly to accommodate the perpetual “one last thing,” and also lets the bag maintain its shapely figure when your load is light.

Lastly, it adapts to your activity too. No more switching bags when you travel or hop on your bike—one bag, with straps that let you wear it in a multitude of ways.

But we all know what you're here for so lets get to it!


The Peak Design Everyday Messenger bag comes in a unique packaging. It doesn't come packaged in a clear plastic bag or in a box. It comes in it's own heavy duty paper bag. When I picked up the package from FedEx, even the clerk was impressed with the packaging.


There's stitching on both ends to keep the bag closed. At the top, there is a pull tab that opens the bag. You can see our video below. We did have a little issue pulling open the tab but only because we weren't sure how to but when you get yours, you won't be making the same mistake.

[youtube src="7Np30u-X1jQ" width="640" height="360" /]

Once you've gotten past admiring the unique packaging (at least for me), it's now time to oogle over the actual bag.


The Everyday Messenger bag (EDM) comes in two colors: Charcoal which is what I went with and will be reviewing and the other is the Heritage Tan.

The outside of the bag is made of ultra waxed Kodra synthetic canvas with DWR coating for weatherproofness, poly-spun mixed twill interior, waterproof galaxy foam bottom liner, compression-molded high-density EVA foam dividers and protective panels, die-cast and stamped aluminum hardware with sandblasted finish and protective clear coat. This means that the bag won't absorb any water and will bead off.

To clean the bag, you'll just want to spot clean the area that is dirty. Since there is padding and foam, you don't want to put it in the wash.


The Peak Design logo is on a piece of Hypalon material which is then stitched onto the bag. It doesn't scream or call for attention. As you'll also see, the stitching is flawless and clean throughout the bag.


The bottom of the bag helps maintains its shape and form while the bottom is protected with a rubber like material. This will get scuffed up though but blends in well with the bag. Placing the bag down on the floor will stand up for the most part even if its top heavy.


The MagLatch is a patent pending magnetic latch system that Peak Design came up with. This is one of the most unique latches I've seen. No velcro. No clips. It's attached to an elastic band which allows you to pull on it. So not only does it clip it securely locks it in place.


There are four different catch points depending on your load. This is where the MagLatch catches onto. With the MagLatch, it allows for one-handed operation to open and close. Since it is magnetic, it will automatically lock.

As you can see from the animation, it's very simple. Simply lift up to disengage the magnet and pull down to release the latch. Even though there is no audible sound like velcro to inform you that the bag is being opened like from unsuspecting people, they would need to tug on the bag in order to open it. With that tug, you'll know when someone is trying to gain access.


There's really nothing much on the back. It has a few unique stitching patterns. Don't know if this was a design feature or if there is any benefits to it.


However, there is a water resistant zipper at the top to allow you to insert a 13"-15" laptop. It fit my 15" Macbook Pro Retina easily. There is also a small pocket to hold your tablet. If you're not hauling your laptop, you can carry documents. There is also a pen sleeve off to the side.


The top handle is thick where it offers support and is wrapped in nylon webbing.


On the sides are two pockets. It's big enough to hold your cellphone (Motorola Moto X Pure Edition 2015 with Supcase case as shown). Don't expect to hold anything too much because not only is it slightly small, it's a tight fit as well. There's also two diagonal straps on the side walls, designed for attaching the Capture Camera Clip to it.

The attention to detail is top-notch down to the anodized aluminum hardware.


On the right side of the bag, there is also a strap tethered to the inside of the pocket. This strap has an anchor link and comes with a anchor disk. This allows you to attach your keys/ID.


Also on each side of the bag is a small compartment that hides a strap conveniently. This strap goes around your waist and keeps the bag close to you. No more bouncing around. I walked from Penn Station to the Jacob Javits Convention Center for Photo Plus Expo 2015 and it stayed close to my body. By wrapping it around your waist, it also takes some of the weight off your shoulders.

Tucking the straps back in can take some effort due to its tight space and opening. But once you get the hang of it and use it more, it tends to get easier.


The shoulder strap is a beefed up version of their popular Slide Strap. The strap is slightly wider and the padding is thicker to accommodate the extra weight that will be put into the bag. It also includes the cinch handle so that you can pull the bag closer to you.

The default configuration is for right handed users (shoulder pad on left shoulder and bag on right side). If you're a lefty or want the bag resting on your right shoulder and the bag to your left, you can easily switch it around but rerouting the strap.


So not only can you wear it as a messenger bag, you can also carry it on one shoulder. However, if you take the waist strap with the buckle and attach it to the shoulder strap, you now have a cross-body/underarm support.


If you need quick access or don't have the room to lift up the flap, you can easily unzip the water resistant zipper and it gives you access to the main compartment. When I first tried out the bag, I had a small piece of plastic sticking out of the bag. This caused my arm to get scratched. I ended up cutting it off and it was fine. I was told that it was probably from the end of the zipper material that was a little long.


On the inside of the flap is a small zipped pocket that lets you hold small items such as tools, memory cards, batteries, wallet, money, etc.


But behind the pocket, it allows you to slide a tripod leg between the pocket and flap. Also included with the bag is a rubber band (which you can store in the pocket). This allows you to wrap around the tripod legs and prevents the tripod from falling out. The tripod I used above is the Fotopro C5i.


With the flap lifted open, there is a zippered front access panel with 8 additional pockets. You can hold batteries, memory cards, cellphone, etc. Each pocket is made of stretchable mesh so it expands. With the pocket full open, it doesn't hang where it would cause your items to fall, so there is no need to hold the flap.


In the main compartment, there is a small pocket. This is big enough to hold your cellphone, wallet or money. You won't be able to put a tablet in this pocket.


Another unique feature of the Everyday Messenger bag is the dividers. No more flimsy dividers. The Everyday Messenger bag includes three origami like divider. However, I only use two. I personally think using three at the same time is a bit too much and overcrowded.

As you can see from the images above, you can set up the dividers in multiple ways. You can even use the divider as a "shelf" so you can stack other lenses on top.

The super soft poly-spun twill interior is soft on your photo gear, but will hold up to years of stuffing and re-stuffing your bag with you-name-it.


Here, you can see how the bag looks like with gear loaded into the bag. Left is my Canon 600EX-RT Speedlite flash with MagMod MagGrip. Right side is my Canon 50mm f1.4 lens. And in the center, I have my Canon 5D Mark III with Canon 24-70mm f2.8 L II with and without a grip. The accessories attached the camera is a SpiderHolster Hand Grip and Peak Design Slide Strap.

On the camera, I have a Slide Strap and SpiderHolster Hand Strap.


Here is a side profile of the Everyday Messenger bag with a non-gripped camera inserted into the bag (left) and how the bag looks like with a gripped camera in the bag (right).

If you're looking for an accessories pouch or a small carry bag for your camera that can be carried via the Peak Design Slide Strap or on your belt, take a look at our Peak Design Field Pouch review.


Conclusion : Overall, the Peak Design Everyday Messenger Bag is one of the best camera bag...everday messenger bag I have used. There are so many unique features to this bag. The quality is top-notch, strap is comfortable and the dividers and MagLatch are awesome! I've even used this as a camera bag and diaper bag at the same time. I had my Canon 5D Mark III with my 24-70mm lens along with a few diapers and wipes. I didn't have to carry a diaper bag and a camera bag separately. Everything fit into the EDM without an issue.

One of the things I'm sure people will dislike about the bag is the lack of a pocket to hold a bottle which would of came in handy when I used it as a diaper bag. I could of had a place to put my daughters milk. Don't think that Peak Design completely forgot about it or omitted it. They did think about it but opted not to which was discussed in one of their YouTube Hangout videos. A solution would be to get the SpiderHolster Water Bottle Holder (review) which can be purchased from Amazon, B&H Photo and Adorama ($20) and clip it to the side of the EDM bag.

Oh by the way, it's also backed by a lifetime warranty!
