Changing lenses seems to be another plus to capture clip....

Thank you! I never thought of using the capture on my life jacket while kayaking. This may be a game changer lol.

Not sure if being serious or sarcastic.....either way just don't fall in ;)

One thing I loved about the capture when I shot canon was their "capture lens". Made changing lenses a snap. He'll even without it changing lens is pretty easy, just have to worry about caps then.

I'm usually sarcastic but no I was being serious. I'm usually on flat water and use a dry bag but for temporarily holding it while adjusting my composition etc it would be useful.

Can you really get the peak capture out with one hand easily?

Yep you can. I use my little finger to push the red button of the clip and slide the camera out. One word of caution, be careful were you mount the clip as I had my X-E2 pop out and bounce down a flight of steps while shooting a wedding. I crouched down and I think my leg/hip squeezed the camera out somehow. probably I pushed the button a bit. Only happened the once and you can adjust the 'grimness' of the clip.

It's a super little device that mounts almost anywhere and the people in Peak Design are really good to deal with. Now I find I'm using [SUPplied Fuji] straps more if I have to carry a camera out and about when I know I'll need my hands free, just feels a lot safer or I'll bring a small shoulder bag to hold camera when not in use.

For work it's Holdfast all the way.

I got the peak capture and the slide slim whatever strap. I like the idea of strap that quickly disconnects and changes length and as much as it was grossly over priced, if they work reliably and hold my expensive kit soundly then they will have value. We shall see.

LOL, slide lite. Good choice. I actually like Peak's straps even more then their Capture clip. The anchor links that they use as a connector are genius

That is the capture pro, no? It is what I am looking to get I think.

Shame, there are a lot of knock offs which make more sense cost wise for what it is, but are you really going to hang 4 figures on a $20 knockoff system?

so far I used the capture pro to hang my dslr gear and standard zoom lens say about 2.5kg?
still far so good. But I am not sure if that would work on a knockoff system.

:-D

if you are going to hang it on a belt, in my opinion, the spider is a better choice.

For others, I believe the capture is a good choice. :D

This makes me feel good because I sorta impulse bought it because I didn't spend as much as I could have on holster and it did look like a better strap alternative to factory because it isn't like I am going to be clipping this thing all the time. I really liked fast length on fly adjustments and completely removing the strap.

I've used my spider holster pro. I basically put the stainless pin on the bottom of my fuji camera. It does not sit as nice as the dedicated mirrorless spider system. However, the logic is that I can swap back and forth my canon dslr and fuji. I have used both systems at once. This setup for me is slick!!! :)

The versatility is much better than having a dedicated mirrorless holster.

I was browsing for any info about the Think Tank Mirrorless Mover and saw people commenting about the SpiderLight.

I reviewed it and have an overview video - http://www.1kindphotog​raphy.com …em-holster-and-plate.html (external link)




I'm actually in the process of finishing up the review of the SpiderLight Backpacker Kit.

Looking into getting the Peak Design Capture as well. Seems like a cool accessory for $54.

Is the holster actually a spider pro holster? If so I'll consider buying the base.

The SpiderLight is exactly like the Pro holster. Just a smaller version and the plate is ARCA compatible.

If you look at the video, towards the middle or so, I compare size of the Pro, Light and Black Widow.

I just confirmed with Shai (spider holster creator) that the spider light plate is fully compatible with the spider pro holster!!!!

I guess I'll need to start buying some plates :)
