I'm seeing random photos/etc. but I'm wondering if anyone can try to "explain" how they've connected and exactly how they wear the cinch with the camera?

I'm finding it a little awkward to place it properly and also be able to draw it up to use at eye level...

FWIW, I just got my Cinch a week or two ago. I've got one end attached to the strap mount near the mode dial on the left side of the camera and the other end to the strap mount on the bottom right side of my battery grip. What I really like about this arrangement is that I can use or remove my L-bracket without affecting the strap.

I was out shooting for a good 4 hours last Saturday with either my 35mm or 70-200mm + 1.4x on the camera and found it very comfortable to wear/carry in both cases. Also, as the camera obviously hangs differently (different center of gravity, different weights) with different lenses attached, the adjustability of the Cinch was much appreciated. I found that the length that worked best and was most comfortable for the longer lens assembly was not the same length as what worked best for me with the smaller lens. Fortunately with the Cinch, you can adjust it to suit the situation in an instant.

Now if they would just get their quick releases to market I'd be set.

Do you have it connected to both strap loops on the body or one loop on body and the other on a tripod plate or other attachment?

Seems like you can wear it like any other longer strap, 1) on your shoulder, 2) across your body, 3) around your neck.

I have one loop connected to the body (left side, strap mount near mode dial) and one loop connected to the strap mount on the bottom of my batter grip (right side of camera). The connection to the battery grip would be similar to connecting one loop to a tripod plate I suppose.

I think you are right about the 3 positions, but it really seems designed to wear across your body and I found it to be very comfortable when worn that way. I also found it easy to raise the camera into shooting position when the strap is worn across the body.

Sure seems across the body is the way it was designed for. I plan on ordering one this week. The ability to quickly make the strap longer/shorter is just genius and fixes many complaints I have with other straps that are always static short of taking the time to adjust the plastic slip locks.

That's what the quick adjust slider is for I think. Adjust as needed for carrying, adjust as needed for shooting.

I got an email a couple hours ago that LumaLabs has shipped my Luma Cinch! :D


Now how long does it take USPS to deliver from Oregan to Indiana? ? ?


I should at least have it by the end of the week.....

If they used priority, 1-3 days. If first class, 1-5 days depending on distance. I forget what they use but it's probably priority
