Your camera smoothly locks into the clip, where it is held rigidly and securely. Press the lockable quick-release button to remove.

The new 3rd gen Capture is smaller, lighter, and smoother than ever before. All machined/anodized aluminum construction.

Kickstarter: Peak Design Newly Redesigned Capture Clip, Slide, Slide Lite Straps



Our great friends over at Peak Design has just launched their 7th Kickstarter campaign. They're launching totally revamped versions of their greatest hits: Capture, Slide, and Slide Lite. These products took Peak Design off the ground, and now they've updated them to new levels of performance and aesthetics.


The new Capture Clip V3 is now 20% narrower, 30% lighter, 20% thinner and 6x smoother. It now comes in black and silver and is machined and anodized. It also has a non-slip grip on the inside and fits straps up to 2.5 inches. You still have the standard thumbscrew to tighten the Capture or you can go with a slightly more secure solution with hex bolt screws. Since it is smaller and lighter, it is a lot more comfier.


For the Slide and Slide Lite straps, it features new angled anchors that were introduced with the 2017 Leash and Cuff redesign. The new anchors are 2x thinner, fits more eyelets and works with tripod plates. The new straps also includes the ultra thin anchor mounts that attaches to the bottom of your camera if you don't have any tripod plates.

The webbing is smoother but offers better grip on the padding. Speaking of padding, it features new internal padding to offer more cushion and the strap has a lower profile.


The new ProPad is slimmer and more comfier and the Capture plates have also been slightly redesigned.

These are the retail prices once it is full available. Back through Kickstarter and there will be a slight discount. Act fast because this is only available for 5 DAYS!

Kickstarter: CAMS Pro Camera Plate and Strap



The creators of Carry And Mount System (CAMS) and the heavily pro-focused CAMS Pro Camera Plate and Strap have returned to Kickstarter seeking funding to expand their lineup of products to better suit the needs of mirrorless and compact DSLR cameras. The last time they were on Kickstarter was back in 2014 and we reviewed their original CAMS Pro. This campaign features two new plates, the CAMS Standard and CAMS Mini, as well as two new straps, the CAMS Minima and the CAMS Pelle leather strap.

  • CAMS Standard and Mini Plates – all the goodness and integrated functionality of the CAMS Pro Camera plate, downsized to fit virtually any camera: Arca-Swiss style quick release clamp compatibility, 1/4"-20 hole for monopods and other accessories, and a locking quick-disconnect fastener for sling strap. Incorporating a few years worth of feedback on the Pro Camera Plate has lead to the inclusion of hex key stowage for plate removal in the field, SD card storage for convenient on-the-go backup, a center indicator on the Arca-Swiss-style dovetail for precise tripod shooting, a hand strap attachment loop, and most importantly, easy access to the battery door without removing the plate attachment all in a sleek, 12mm thin package. The Standard Plate offers a wider body for stability on and off a tripod while the Mini Plate ensures convenient access to the battery on a wide range of cameras.
  • CAMS Minima Strap - This military-grade webbing-based strap folds into a pocket-sized bundle yet offers easy length adjustment and can accommodate pretty much any torso with its unique design. Quickly shorten your strap for on-the-go stability or lengthen it for shooting freedom. This minimalist design works best with lighter cameras but it is strong enough to handle a pro DSLR and lens.
  • CAMS Pelle Strap - Add some missing style and class to the act of carrying your camera. In the same avant-garde spirit as the Minima Strap, this full-grain leather sling with nickel-plated hardware and rivets and embossed CAMS logos is intended to be subtle, bordering on discreet, yet clearly not your ordinary camera strap. Two sizes accommodate most torsos using the simple belt-style adjustment.
