I love the innovative film gear that spawns from Kickstarter projects! I’m such a sucker for’em. So when I stumbled across the new Leash & Cuff project I had to jump on. I’ve been using a Luma sling and I love it, but it doesn’t do what I need it to do…stay safely at my side so that I can enjoy life, live in my surroundings without being sidetracked by my camera’s whereabouts at all times. I like spontaneous photography and documentary clips, but that’s not easy when your camera is a burden.
After upgrading my primary shooting lens to the incredible Zeiss 35mm f2, I was concerned about my luma sling–letting my camera bounce around. Enter the Leash by Peak Designs! It’s absolutely perfect, in every way. It is constructed of thin seatbelt material that glides perfectly over your clothing–to pull quickly for a shot. But the multiple spot configuration options (strap, sling from the bottom, sling on the side & bottom) makes it perfect for getting your camera in the best spot for YOU. You can also stick your foot in it or wrap it around your belt for stabilizing a shot or shooting video. It’s tremendous.
When I throw my camera in a bag, this strap is so soft and slim that I can just let it fall on top…and then she’s ready to grab and go!
I’m concerned that the little bobble clip connectors are going to weaken on the strap…but as long as its not too quickly–I’ll just buy another.
I also grabbed a Capture clip with my pledge…and it’s just as awesome. I haven’t used it as much because the strap is best suited for my usual style, but it’s mounted on my Kata bag in waiting for a good mission…say San Francisco Chinatown!?
Back to 3D photo editing! Wheeee!
