You can probably get a pretty good idea based on the videos on their blog.

I was able to get a rough idea. I just hope the battery door will still open. It will be a little wider than the M for sure, but not too much.

I went ahead and ordered a mk2. I can always get another plate or hook it up another way if it doesn't work out.

Thanks for that but I'm still a little skeptical. How is metal on metal not going to eventually wear the finish off the camera where it is attaches? I like the shrink tubing idea... only if it's necessary. Somebody straighten me out.

There is always Plasti-dip, too.

Wow. I've been gone a day and this thread has taken off again! It's great to see Gen 2 of the Cinch finally here. I'll place my order for the upgrade kit shortly. I see some familiar posts above. :cool:

For those that are interested, the heat shrink tubing was extremely difficult to put on the quick links. If you use soap or wax to help glide the heat shrink along, be careful when you heat it, as the soap or wax tends to bubble up and damage the heat shrink. Ask me how I know. :rolleyes:

The best thing is to muscle the heat shrink on the link dry. It's difficult, but ensures that nothing will start to bubble up between the link and the rubber. It looks nice though....

Plasti Dip seems like a viable solution. It's a spray on synthetic rubber coating (think about the rubber coating on many tools, like pliers).

What about the folks who paid for the luma loop, and the cinch. If we want to upgrade again. There should be a repeat customer discount.

I was already kind of surprised by the lower price of the strap + plate. I figured the price would be somewhere around $80+ for the full setup. I'm quite happy only paying $70 shipped for a strap + quick links.

I did notice the discount code field while ordering--to those of you who've signed up for the email advertising, have any of you ever received coupon codes for Luma purchases?

Nope. I have never received a discount coupon for Luma purchases, but I've only been on the email list since last August, so maybe someone has gotten a coupon before then?

Ratjack, thanks for informing us what you think. I'm sure with all of the time you spent with the V2, it has allowed you to form a solid opinion...:rolleyes:

Never once mentioned having the V2 strap. I was stating an opinion based off of images and videos shown of the V2 along with other information available. Maybe you didn't get the email?

I still say it needs a little pocket on it. Emergency memory card holder.

Design phase is over. Too late for that request. Buy a TT pocket Rocket and strap it to yourself. All of my bags have memory card holders, and I've got several pocket rockets. I really don't need any more holders.

So where is a place to get tiny shrink tubing without spending $15?
