JOBY Introduces UltraFit Hand Strap and DSLR Wrist Strap

JOBY UltraFit Hand Strap with UltraPlate and DSLR Wrist Strap

JOBY has a couple new hand/wrist straps for those of you who aren’t really fans of the plethora of neck/shoulder straps out there. I get questions about hand and wrist straps occasionally, so I know there are plenty of photographers who really dig this kind of strap.

First up, the UltraFit Hand Strap with UltraPlate is a combo of a hand strap and universal quick-release plate allows you to keep a wrist strap attached while using the camera on a tripod. It is compatible with standard or pro DSLRs with or without a battery grip.

The DSLR Wrist Strap is a simple cinching wrist strap designed for DSLRs or mirrorless cameras. It’s a lightweight minimalist solution for those who don’t want a full size strap.

The UltraFit Hand Strap with UltraPlate retails for $49.95. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

The DSLR Wrist Strap is available for $14.95. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

Capture Camera Clip System Review

Capture Camera Clip System by Peak Design

The Capture Camera Clip System by Peak Design is a unique camera clip that will allow you to clip your camera to any belt or backpack strap.  This system has to be one of the most innovative designs I have seen in awhile. It started out as a Kickstarter project, which quickly gained traction and funding.

My initial thoughts when I finally got my hands on the Capture was this is the coolest thing ever. Not only can I clip it to any belt or strap, but the quick-release plate is an Arca Swiss compatible. That means it will connect into my tripod system without any problems. No switching out quick-release plates. [Read more...]
