I agree that would be useful. I ordered a Big and I'm wondering if I should have ordered the regular. I haven't used it yet but I did try it out on the camera. I have to 'cinch' up the webbing straps as short as they can get for it to sit right. Even then when I bring the camera up to my eye and cinch it tight to help stablize it's not quite tight enough.

It would be really good to know how much smaller the regular one is compared to the Big. I don't want to ask for an exchange only to find out that the regular is too small for my...ahem....portly figure. I guess I should just email Luma and ask. If I know how much shorter it is then I could try folding over the center section of mine to see how the regular would fit. I assume that's where most of the difference in length is.

Duncan at Luma got back to me. For future readers, the length difference between the Big and Regular is 6". Duncan suggested I would be happier with the Regular and he's right. I folded over the padded section to reduce the length by 6" and it made a big difference. I'll be exchanging for a Regular.

Top notch service from Luma.

i just placed an order for the regular size. I looked at the blackrapid and carry speed but to me it looks like the Luma Cinch is better thought out, i really don't like the way the BR and CS have a single point to attach to the camera which seem like it would flop around too munch.

Finally got mine today. Putting it on now. Can't believe the membrane connector can support the camera with a lens attached. It is really thin. The strap and parts are definitely really well made. Looks like it will be well worth the money and I haven't even tried it out yet.

There are a few areas where you can shorten/ lengthen the regular strap

1) the thinner strap sections which connect to the camera lugs
2) the back half of the strap can also be changed

Yes, I had adjusted all of those and it still wasn't right. The regular is what I need to solve it.

I'm definitely glad I got the small. I think the regular would've been too big for sure. I'll post a picture later. I only have the one camera, so it won't be a good picture either. :lol:

Anyone use this with the 200 F2 ? I need a new strap for this lens and I don't think the black rapid sling strap connected to the tripod mount will suffice.

I don't see why not, works fine with my 5DII + Grip + 70-200II

Got my Cinch yesterday. 8.5/10.

Smooth movement in the system
Easy to adjust the fixed portions
Nice, clean attachment at the tripod mount (I did flip the flexible washer so that the cork is against the piece instead of against the camera body)
Good design thought into the neoprene strap setup. It maxes out, due to what I suspect to be an inner mesh/strap of sorts, so that the neoprene doesn't tear.

The pull tab leather is a bit hard for my tender hands (and it is sewed a little off)


I have to figure out some way to cover the buckles. When I toss the setup into my backpack the buckles rest on expensive stuff. I knew it would and thought I'd tolerate it ... but no. lol.
So I'm thinking of taking some scrap leather I have and sew it around the buckle, a sleeve of sorts, so that it travels with the buckle.

How is your strap connected ? Through the tripod mount of the camera or lens ? With the 200 F2, I'm thinking it will have to have both points connected to the lens and not the tripod ring.

Mine is on the lens tripod ring.
