I feel like my 5-yr old daughter when we tell her we're driving to Disney World. Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? I gotta go potty. Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

word of mouth is the best marketing imo. or should we say word of forums. def got my attention

gakoenig wrote in post #15466343 (external link)
Honestly, I have no idea how marketing works.

We will of course, make an announcement on our email list when the MkII is available. There will likely be a pre-order, just to give us some more breathing room with the tooling we are waiting on and to help us figure out sizes for the initial production run.

Luma has never done ads, or promotions, or really used Twitter, or sponsored podcasts, or done any promotional work at all. We've always been so far behind with deliveries that it makes little sense to spend money driving customers to our website when most of them are gonna see "2-3 Weeks!" and turn away. Since we've engineered many of the production bottlenecks out of the design (which was the overarching goal of the MkII), the goal is to get out of that hump and actually grow.

Actually word of mouth is nice but advertising is a lot more effective. #Pepsi #CocoCola

It's sort of in there somewhere, behind the 'blad.

IMAGE: http://i.imgur.com/JVRvL.jpg

Actually, this photo's out of date. The 5D2 has been replaced by a 5D3 but I still use the Cinch. I've got the Cinch attached to an RRS QR plate on the bottom instead of the screw/lug that comes with the Cinch.

And, please excuse the poor photo quality. Had to resort to my phone seeing as how all my good gear is in the photo!

This is the best strap ever. It replaced a BR strap last summer, and a couple of months ago I added the membrane connector for use with my L bracket. The Cinch is such a great product!

Why don't you attach it straight to the L-plate? There's a lug on the plate for this purpose.

I have a L plate and a membrane connector. The lug is on the wrong side of the L plate.

Why not attach it to the battery grip?

Not on my plate. I think the RRS L plate for the non-gripped body has a lug but the grip version does not - at least mine doesn't.

I wore it that way on a few occasions when I had an L plate attached and found that it would tend to pull a corner of the camera body into my back, which was uncomfortable compared to when I had the strap attached to the center mounting hole on the camera bottom. The membrane connector did the trick.

That's right. The non-gripped L-plate has a lopphole for a strap. The L-plate for gripped models doesn't have the loophole since the grip has one already.

Got it. How well does the RRS plate fit with the membrane? The RRS plate has some very tight tolerances.

Amazingly, there is no perceptible difference to the fit! The membrane is incredibly thin :)
