If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

I agree! Now just to wait for the upgrade kit price.

$55 for the complete cinch 2? I figured it was going to cost MORE than the prior $70 pricing (of the Cinch and Loop models)

Sign up for the mailing list, or follow @lumalabs or find us on the Facebook.

Notice that the May 1 date is "General availability." Orders start in a few hours, shipping ~ 15 April. URL will be out as we get our crusty e-commerce side of the website working again (since we haven't taken orders for a couple of months with it).

And the Mk I upgrade kit, the ARCA plate and Quick Links, will be $20.

I already signed up for mailing list few weeks ago even though I'm not an owner of Luma products in the past. But I'm interested for the Mk II this time. Not a big fan of BR/CS as well, and for now I'm using some Op/Tech slings. So I'm ready to upgrade to Luma Cinch. ;)

the original cinch if i'm not mistaken connected at two different points on the camera, which appeared to give the camera good stability and appeared to dial out the swinging around at the end of the strap as suffered by most other straps.

however, the new strap seems to be fixing to the underside of the camera which will only cause the same issue as other straps?

If I'm not mistaken, it has the same connection points as the original cinch and the OEM neck strap, which means you can choose where to connect it.

Looks like they've thought of that one too. Quoting from the website linked earlier:

"As we went through design iterations, we found that what we really wanted to have was not just one, but two possible mount points on the bottom of a camera. Between this and the two main camera strap mount points already on a camera, this gives you four places to chose from in how to hang your camera."

:)

The Cinch is still a two point strap, and with any two point system (for cameras, at least), it doesn't really matter how far apart the two points are.

If you were to attach both points of the Cinch to one connector, the camera would dangle a bit, about the center of rotation at that single point. Even than, the one strap going across the front of your body and the one going behind you would restrain most of the camera's movement.

This works well because cameras are relatively compact. On a rifle or carbine sling, things work a bit differently because of the length of the weapon. Attach a two point sling close together, and the rifle can rotate around and cause all sorts of twisting issues.

The Cinch II with both points mounted to their own brackets on the ARCA plate is the ideal for the system.

For $55, you get the strap and plate - the QR links are not a part of this $55 kit, correct?

Also, is the original CInch now available for sale again? Nice! Do you plan to continue carrying this or just sell it until your stock is depleted?

If you want to use the QR links on one or more of the original camera body's lug mounts, you can use this:

http://www.amazon.com …r=8-19&keywords=op%2Ftech (external link)

I plan to use a membrane connector and one of these Op/Tech Adapt-Its to attach the strap to the left side of the body.

Yup. But the links are only $10 for the pair.

Like I said earlier, we have as many customers who want a quick release system as we have customers who like the simplicity of standard 3/8" webbing connectors. This keeps everyone happy.

Also, is the original CInch now available for sale again? Nice! Do you plan to continue carrying this or just sell it until your stock is depleted?

No, this is a bug!
The e-commerce system is being brought back up over the next few hours. DO NOT ORDER AN ORIGINAL CINCH. We don't have any to sell. If you order it, we will cancel your order and you will be a sad, sad panda.

If you have the same fetish for CNC milled aluminum as I do, don't worry. We will eventually have an aluminum hardware kit for the MkII. The modular design makes it a field-upgradeable item (like everything else on the II).
