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.
CustomSLR’s C-Loop is an alterative camera strap attachment solution to the traditional top mounted camera strap loops that are located on each top side of DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. Instead, the C-Loop attaches to the bottom of the camera in the tripod mount that is found on virtually every camera. [Read more…]
Peak Design has a winner of a new camera strap system on its hands with its Leash and Cuff models.

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…]
