Peak Design Relaunches Leash Ultralight Camera Strap and Cuff Wrist Strap



Our good friends over at Peak Design has just relaunched the Leash, Cuff and Anchor Links. The Leash and Cuff not only come in black but it now comes in Ash as well. They also look a lot more stylish and higher quality (slightly more thicker and tighter weave). The predecessors functioned well but didn't fit well with Peak Designs current product line.

The Leash has new hardware, Hypalon quick-adjuster and slides much smoother.

The Cuff also has new hardware, a magnetic clasp and adjuster system. There's three modes:
  1. Open Mode - the loop just stays open so you can easily slide your hand in and out quickly and easily.
  2. Cinched Mode - if you pull on the wrist strap, it will cinch and tighten around your wrist for added security.
  3. Bracelet Mode - there is a magnetic clasp that lets you wear the Cuff like a bracelet. There is a magnet inside the strap that you can slide and adjust accordingly.
New Anchor mounts are included with the Leash and Cuff. It screws directly to the tripod mount on the bottom of the camera but unlike the other Peak Design plates, you can not mount it onto a ball head. It's simply a discreet looking attachment point to attach the Anchor Links.

The new Anchor Links are just as strong as the predecessor but is half the thickness which can fit through the eyelets of smaller cameras. The "pucks" are also slightly more angled for easy connecting. But don't worry, these new Anchors are backwards compatible with all your current Peak Design straps.

The 2017 Leash, Cuff and Anchor Links are available for purchase starting August 15 from any of these retailers:

Leash ($34.95) - Peak Design | AmazonB&H Photo | Adorama
Cuff ($19.95) - Peak Design | Amazon | B&H Photo | Adorama
Anchor Link ($19.95) - Peak Design | AmazonB&H Photo | Adorama

Photobucket Image Hosting Alternatives


Unlimited Photo Storage

A few weeks ago, we posted that Photobucket is no longer allowing users to do 3rd party hosting and hotlinking unless the users purchased an outrageous $399.99/year package or $39.99/month — essentially holding everyones images as "ransom". This has caused an uproar on the internet because images will not be shown on forums and sites unless people paid the "ransom".

Photographers and just users in general have been looking for alternatives to Photobucket. Below, we'll list out a few options and routes you can go with.
  1. SmugMug (PAID) - We have an advertising relationship with SmugMug
    SmugMug is polished, clean, professional and has a modern looking interface. It is filled with photo uploading/sharing features and even supports video hosting. Tons of customization as well as organization options are equally present but they don’t come free.

    SmugMug requires you to purchase one of their monthly or yearly plans to be able to use their services.

    • Basic: $47.88/year ($3.99/month) or $5.99/month
    • Power: $71.88/month ($5.99/month) or $8.99/month
    • Portfolio: $150/month ($12.50/month) or $20/month
    • Business: $300/month ($25/month) or $35/month
  2. Flickr (FREE/PAID)
    To upload an image or a video, you must have an account. It offers three types of account: Free, Flickrpro and Flickrpro+. If you have a free-type account, you are able to get 1TB cloud storage for free, but each photo you upload is limited to 200 MB and each video up to 1GB and no longer than 3 minutes. The Flickrpro and Flickrpro+ account frees you from any ads. With Flickrpro+, instead of paying monthly you save some money by paying for the year upfront.

    • Flickrpro: $5.99/month
    • Flickrpro+: $49.99/year
  3. ImageShack (FREE)
    ImageShack is a platform dedicated for image hosting and sharing. There is a 30 day free trial and after that, you have to pay $2/month to continue using it. You can use it to upload your photos fast and effectively, send it to social networking sites, create direct links to embed images and send pictures via email. But just like Photobucket, it is filled with advertisements and the number of images you can upload per day is limited.
  4. Imgur (FREE)
    Whether you’ve logged in or not, you can always upload pictures as you like. It offers four ways to upload pictures: browse you computer, enter image URLs, drag and drop and paste from your clipboard. Once a picture is uploaded, you will get multiple links to it, which enable you to insert the picture to any forums and blogs.
  5. TinyPic (FREE)
    TinyPic is owned by Photobucket, but you will find it much better to use. You don’t need to have an account to access its uploading function. It provides three file type options for you: Image, Video and Url. But you are only allowed to upload one image or video at a time or in a batch of up to five (5). Image shall not be larger than 1600 pixels, and video not be longer than 15 minutes. Once uploaded, the link to the image will have its own unique link. So the filename is not preserved.
  6. UltraIMG (FREE)
    UltraIMG is a free image hosting platform. UltraIMG supports almost all image formats that are currently operation in the photography industry including JPG, BMP, GIF, PNG and much more. However, UltraIMG only supports of the uploading image of up to 2 MB only.
  7. Web hosting (PAID)
    If you are knowledgeable or prefer more freedom and customizability, web hosting (ie. GoDaddy, 1&1, etc.) is an option. Price depends on the package that you choose. You will also need to purchase a domain (ie. .com, .photography). Both web hosting and domain names are purchased per year. So purchasing both, it will more than likely cost more than all the other options listed but you have the ability to create your own website, sub-domains, your email address and not have to worry about transferring images if the free site stops 3rd party hosting or jacks up the price.
If there are any sites or services that you think can help other photographers, feel free to contact us or leave a comment.

Press Release: TSA Requires You to Take Out Electronics from Your Carry-On Now



If you're traveling through United States airports, it will become more laborious because you will now have to remove any electronics that are larger than a smartphone from your carry-on bag. Previously, if you were carrying a laptop, you would need to put it on a bin and put it through the X-ray machines. You will now have to physically take out cameras, tablets and other larger electronics our of your bag and put it in a bin which will go through the same screening process.

It's bad enough you have to put your shoes and any items in your pockets into a bin, along with your laptop. Now, these electronics will need to be put into bins as well instead of just passing through the machine inside your carry-on bag.

But for those of you who are part of the TSA's Pre✓® (PreCheck) program, you won’t have to remove your electronics & cameras from carry-on.

Currently, only U.S. airports are already implementing these new screening procedures but more will be doing it soon.

3 Legged Thing Releases Lightweight Universal L-Bracket



UK tripod manufacturer, 3 Legged Thing has introduced a new, lightweight universal L-Bracket that offers full cable port access for a range of Canon and Nikon cameras. These new L-Brackets has a thread on it so users can attach accessories such as clamps, brackets and mics.

L-Brackets are designed to make switching from landscape orientation to portrait quick and easy when using a tripod. The QR11 is made from magnesium alloy, to be lightweight while still being able to hold your gear and protect the camera. It features a large cut-out area that allows you access to the microphone, headphone and USB/HDMI ports located on the camera’s end panel depending on the brand and model of camera.


There are mounting points for strap lugs and each base rail has a Arca Swiss dovetail. The two plates can be taken apart by using the supplied tool for easy storage and transportation.


Since this is a universal L-Bracket instead of the typical L-Brackets on the market that are camera specific, some cameras are fully compatible (access to all ports and battery door), some is partial where it requires some minor adjustments and there are some where it fits but blocks ports and battery door (see list below).

The 3 Legged Thing QR11-L comes in a choice of Orange (LC) or Gray (LG) colors and will cost £49.99/$49.99 when shipping begins on August 1st.

Photobucket Revises 3rd Party Hosting and Breaks Image Links Across the Internet



Embedding images on a website or forum is a very common practice especially when you can upload and link to them for free. Photobucket has been around since 2003 with over 100 million users and over 15 billion images. With Photobucket making changes to its subscription tiers, this means billions of images across the web that are linking to Photobucket will no longer load outside of Photobucket's site. It will now load a Photobucket 3rd party hosting broken image as shown above.

For those who want to continue using the 3rd Party Hosting feature then a Photobucket Plus 500 plan is required. It costs $39.99 per month or $399 per year. This is robbery or as some would call, "ransom", "ransomware", "extorsion", "blackmail" or whatever you feel fit.

Granted, the 3rd party hosting may not generate any revenue but do you really have to charge $39.99/month or $399 per year? Why not allow those who pay for plan be able to have 3rd party hosting? You're generating revenue already from those who purchase a plan.

So all images that are hosted on Photobucket whether it be a free account or a lower tier plan, will eventually begin to have the image show up due to removing 3rd Party Hosting feature. Some accounts will be fine until December 31, 2018, depending on their subscription.

What makes matters worse is that Photobucket users were apparently given no warning of the change. The subscription features simply changed, and images stopped loading without explanation. Users are furious and we hope this is a mistake, or that Photobucket's management will realize the scale of the problem that they have caused. But if Photobucket doesn't revise their TOS to be a little more lenient or reasonable, expect a lot of broken link images in the coming months.
