I feel like I need to wait for this. I love my Cinch, but I also love my L bracket. I had planned on ordering the links, but now I'm thinking I should wait and see what is to come since I've gotten used to storing the camera in the bag with the strap attached.

I can see how that might stop someone from upgrading from a Cinch v1 to a v2--but lets assume 1st-time customers here, who use L-brackets. They can still remove the plate and use the v2 as a v1--and still have a spare arca-plate to stick on some other device. Pretty much win/win for $60 shipped.

One thing to know, if it hasn't been explicitly stated yet; the Cinch 2 is futureproof.

Everything in the pipeline here at Luma. Every idea muddling around my thick skull. Every improvement that our user base suggests... Everything about the Cinch from now on will work across the board with every other Cinch.

It is a system, and the system is designed to be 100% backwards compatible going forward.

I agree. The more I look at my Cinch v1, the more I like it. I'm not sure I need to get the v2 or even the upgrade kit just yet. However, for a new buyer, this is a no-brainer. Cinch v2 is a great product at a great price.

I am interested in those split loops though and I wasn't kidding when I asked about them earlier. I'm using my battery grip less these days and am simply using my Cinch v1 attached to the traditional points on my camera. Makes it easier to remove and install the battery grip. I'd love to see the split loops as an alternative to those hard plastic thingies I'm currently using.

Cool! Just pulled the trigger on the Cinch 2! $5 shipping across town to Beaverton OR :) ... I can handle that. I am order # 8390 - for Greg's sake, I hope that started at #001 this morning and for my sake, I hope it didn't.. :lol:

BTW Greg, what is the recommended attachment scheme for a heavy lens like the 100-400? One end to the ARCA plate on the camera and the other to the tripod foot on the lens?

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.

Err, 100-400 is considered heavy? Generally speaking, the camera doesn't flop around when using a cinch, so I'm betting the 100-400 wouldn't bounce around much either way. I just hope the new straps sag less (than the original Cinch) under heavy loads... ie above 10 pounds. Fully loaded for birding (100-400, 1d3, 580exII, betterbeamer, battery pack, teleconverter, L-plate), my cinch strap sagged a bit, and felt uncomfortable.

8250-ish, at 1:35pm EST

This site gets some traffic, but I really doubt they got in 8k+ orders in one day. Maybe an early-bird can post an order number and time of order :)

Perhaps not.. but I kinda remember Greg mentioning a while back (I can go back and dig through the thread) that a bigger lens should have the cinch (revision 1 in this case) attached to the tripod foot.

And while the 100-400 is not heavy in absolute terms, I assume that the reason it ships with a tripod foot as standard is Canon's way of indicating that where possible, the tripod foot should support the weight of the lens. Now that is when the lens is horizontal in normal use on a tripod - maybe this does not apply in the case of the Cinch where the lens essentially hangs vertically.

I've wondered why they add those pricey tripod collars on some of those lighter standard and telephoto lenses. Okay, the 100-400 might be a bit on the heavier side, and fully extended I suppose that could throw off the balance (especially if using a rebel over pro series), but the 400 5.6L and 300 4L? It just seems unnecessary.

Trying to work out in my head how that lens would be oriented with the cinch2. I suppose you would want it pointed down, rather than up? Either way, if you forget to lock the lens in, you could be in for some trouble once you cinch it back!!

one hour before me, 112 orders put in. Absolutely no way they got in 8k orders today :) I'm assuming they started the day somewhere around 7800.

Hmm, The first Luma Cinch look prettier somehow.
I got email from luma early 5am in the morning, I was so excited check their official site, the strap doesn't look as nice as the 1st version. Am I only one seeing this?

1st version the silver hook and logo made it looks really stand out and very classic.
But I love to see the review from ppl here who ordering them.

Thanks
