Has anyone attached one of the connectors to the camera using a standard arca-swiss plate (not the one that comes with the capture clip)? With no attachment point on the side of the plate or on the bolt, the only other options leave the plate not quite flush with the bottom of the camera.

For those who might be reading this and don't what the letters refer to when it comes to the points of attachment then here you go.

That makes sense to me. I can't think of a single tripod plate that would be able to accommodate these quick release dongles without some sort of modification. Were you expecting otherwise?

Thanks for the headsup on these. The Leash and Capture Clip seem to be the solutions I've been looking for for a while (for climbing photography).

The clip lets me mount the camera securely to my harness but keeps it accessible, and the Leash acts as a safety backup and tether for when I'm holding the camera at height. I also like how you can put the camera back in the capture clip to hold it while changing lenses - lifesaver..!

I ordered a Capture Clip and pre-ordered a Leash, I'm looking forward to trying them out. I can see uses for the Cuff too, so may end up getting one of those too if the system works out well in practice.

Turns out a gripped 7D + 622 + 580exII + 70-200 2.8 IS MK2 is BLOODY HEAVY! Who knew?!!

"Standard" plate from which manufacturer? There isn't, really, a 'standard' for them. My Markins plates have a slot on them for attaching a wrist strap, as do others.

Interesting product. Looks promising for a sling strap.

Just got mine last week and my initial impression is that for me it's not a great fit with the 7D and grip, the weight with a bigger lens makes the Leash cut into my shoulder.

For a smaller camera like my Samsung NX100 it works quite well, was wondering how owners with heavier equipment are liking it?

I have used it with a 5DII-ungripped and a 135 for a couple hours.
It was comfortable, but I had a jacket on. I liked it.
Have not tested with a T-shirt or light clothing.

It's horrible as a standard neck strap with the camera hanging in the center of your chest no matter what gear you have on there. I never carry my camera like that anyway, so I don't care.

The heaviest gear I have used is a 5D II + 70-200 f/2.8 IS and I thought it was perfectly comfortable in sling mode. Strap on one shoulder with camera hanging on the opposite side of my body is how I always carry my camera even with the default Canon straps.

One of the biggest things for me has been the discovery that I can use this as a sling and secure both the camera body AND my 100-400. Because of the way the body hangs, I've had issues in the past with something in my pocket depressing the lens release button and had the lens come loose while walking. With this system, I can catch both items and they don't have anywhere to fall.

I was using it sling style with no jacket on, maybe my shoulders are too wimpy. :D

did anyone else get the Dualplate for their capture? Mine does not fit on my Manfrotto clamps (plate is slightly too big). Wondering if I just got a bad one...

Ordering a set tomorrow. Wish I saw this sooner. Would have got the full deal. Would love another capture but oh well. Need that Manfrotto plate too.

I've been wondering the same thing. I haven't received mine yet, but Canadian customs is sometimes very slow in processing such items at the border.
