Argh. Maybe it'll be here in time for my birthday next month and I won't have to pay for it myself. :D

This is the part we've been waiting on forever (and the new slide in the corner of the shot). The tool is up and running with a couple of tweaks that will be sorted out tomorrow. We are looking to add two small holes for optional set screws to act as slide out safeties and getting the dimensions spot on to work with non-adjustable RRS clamps.

The grain texture on the part (enhanced by using a contrasty B&W filter) is carbon fiber; our parts are (by weight) 60% CF. They are also super long fibers 25-30mm long versus the typical 6-8mm long fiber fills everyone else uses. It is an incredible material (as strong as aluminum) and our supplier is the only one working with it, which is why we waited so patiently to work with him.

Will the new straps work with L Brackets?

It seems like I will not need the parts that you are waiting to finish, so can we start ordering the straps now?

There are other parts, but they all come out of the same big chunk of milled steel.

On top of that, every MkII Cinch will come with the ARCA plate instead of the little CinchMount.

Hmm, what if we use L-brakets and don't need the arca plate.

Stocking stuffers? Executive gift? Coffee table centerpiece? The ideas are endless!

Everyone has been pretty ill of Luma's constant inventory woes for *years*, especially us. What we've decided to do is build a single Cinch with a tremendous number of features (like an ARCA plate) for a very reasonable price, but do so in a modular fashion that you can totally field strip and change to your particular set of needs with a series of system accessories. For the vast majority of photographers, the MkII will be a pretty smokin' deal.

A small number of folks will end up finding that the MkII's base configuration will need an accessory or two to work perfectly with their setup, or will find that they just won't use the ARCA plate. While slightly inconvenient, they will still most likely wind up paying less for a MkII than they did for a MkI.
