(also mentioned with praise; The Pentax MX-1 ;) )

And DDTV Episode 42 for the Peak Design Capture Camera Clip System

A versatile, quick connecting camera strap – neck strap, sling strap, safety tether and video stabilizer – all in one

If you’ve ever had to take traditional camera straps on and off your camera, you probably know how annoying the task is. Peak Design, makers of the Capture camera clip system, wants to change the way people think about and use straps. The company has unveiled a new strap called the Leash, a versatile accessory that can take on different configurations and be used for multiple purpose

Peak Design Leash® features a brand new quick-connection system that is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. It’s so fast, secure and unobtrusive that once you use it we think you’ll never want to go back. Here’s how it works:

Key Features

– Leash comes with a set of Anchors (A). Leash comes with 4 anchors, Cuff with 2.

– The Anchors attach to any loop on your camera using a Cow Hitch (B). Capture® quick-release base plates sold separately.

– These Anchor disks slide into clips on the end of Leash and Cuff, locking in with a click (C).

– To unlock the anchors, press the disk down with your thumb and push it out in the reverse direction.

Endlessly configurable strap

The Leash’s simple design allows it to adjust to twice it’s own length. This means that in addition to using it as a neck strap, you can extend it all the way to become a sling strap. We also added an Anchor on the Leash itself, which lets you connect one end of the Leash to your clothing/gear and use it as a fully-adjustable safety strap or video tensioner. For those wanting something even smaller, we created a downsized version of Leash called the Cuff – it uses the same connection system and acts as a minimalist wrist strap.

Rugged, Minimalist Design

The strap of Leash is made of a special seat belt style webbing and its quick-connect clips are made of lightweight glass-filled nylon resin. These materials are ultra-durable (we guarantee them for life) yet compact enough to fit in your pocket. This means that Leash will always be there when you need it, and can be easily stowed away when you don’t. It looks sleek and simple, and glides smoothly against your shoulder and chest.”
