Peak Design’s Leash and Cuff are Fresh Takes on Camera Straps

Peak Design has a winner of a new camera strap system on its hands with its Leash and Cuff models. Peak Design previously brought us the Capture Camera Clip for packing our DSLRs and mirrorless cameras on our belts and camera bag straps. Now, Peak Design is after the camera neck and wrist straps.

In a nutshell, Leash is a clever and thoughtful re-design of the modern camera neck strap and facilitates a create range of holstering options for any camera and a new patent-pending quick-connect system. For all the new and different designs of camera straps on the market, the Leash looks like it could be the most versatile of them all thanks to a new anchor system that allows you to quickly connect a camera strap to many different points on a camera.

The Cuff offers a similar take on the wrist strap for times when you don’t want or need a strap hanging around your neck. Using the same anchor system, the Cuff quickly converts from an ordinary wrist band to a camera wrist strap.

After just a week, Peak Design blew through its Kickstarter goal of $10,000 and hit the $100,000 mark, but you can still get in on the pre-order action here on Kickstarter. Otherwise, look for the Peak Design Leash and Cuff at photo gear retailers in early 2013 at a price of $40 and $20, respectively.
