Having something that's customized to the user and upgradeable will go a long way! Looking forward to what Luma will be bringing out over the next few months!

With the amount of activity on here you might need to stock up own that coffee. Haha. I love the upgradability added to the new cinch. It makes the possibilities endless in the future. Keep up the good work

Based on the already posted order numbers and order times, it seems reasonable to assume that order numbers are sequential. Therefor, I was just posting my order number, not time as I think that is irrelevant. But posting my order number gives us an idea of how early the order numbers began. But even that is irrelevant now that someone posted an order number lower than mine. Regardless, you got what you were asking for.

I wouldn't bank on him getting it before he deploys on the 25th, but I also wouldn't rule it out as it is very possible.

Hmm, okay, so May 1st was general availability.

It also makes much more sense to have a modular system. As mentioned, it's easier on production. But also people are more likely to upgrade their current Cinch 2 straps with new components than to replace the straps entirely. Some original Cinch owners have already revealed their reluctancy to replace their original straps. No one wants to replace a strap with every new version, but upgrading one to make is better? Absolutely, lol.

I love to accessorize. :lol:

Pretty sure it was stated that they would email previous mk1 buyers--whether or not they made an effort to sign up for the mailing list.

C'mon, Luma? You should be informing your past customers whether or not they signed up for your mailing list. If I wasn't a member here, I'd continue on my days without ever knowing that there was a new release--and in the end Luma loses my business, which would have been unfortunate.

Haven't I been telling you repeatedly to sign up with Luma for info instead of relying on POTN as their unpaid support site? Get with the program!

image spammer, reported

And thank you so very much for propagating their spam by quoting it verbatim, including the links they wanted in. You only helped them and made our job harder. That's why we say (as in my sig.) "Report SPAM, Don't Answer It".

Sorry for the infraction--I only wanted to help.

The person who posted directly before me responded to that spammer--in fact, it wasn't entirely obvious that it was a spammer. I'm aware of most rules--and I do my best to adhere--but every now and then I make a judgement call. ;) I should have remembered to blank out the quote--but it was late--the rest felt like common sense.

They responded, but without including the offending off-site images (which might even have been edited in later; they do that). It's easy for us to zap all of somebody's posts. But if we have to check every thread they've posted in for people quoting them, it's a lot more work. Best course of action would be to report the quote as well, or mention in reporting the spammer that there has been at least one reply to it.

I have a plan when my cinch gets here if it doesn't work anyone want to buy it LOL I like a strap that will connect to the tripod collar and my plan is to use the Suns-sniper ss ballbearing connector to one end of the cinch and the other to the body

Got it. I'll proceed in that manner in the future.

Why that SS ball bearing instead of the included Luma Arca plate?

Yeah I guess I could use the plate on the lens never gave that a thought but I have always liked the SS connector easy to use just screw it onto the collar, need no tools. I will try both

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

I agree.. the first version looks much better. I like the idea of the new one... but I much prefer my V1.

1- We anticipated that folks would miss the pull tab and machined hardware, which is why why we plan on offering them as optional accessories. The fact is though, making the entire product line depend on CNC time is just a nightmare. Instead of rushing CNC milled parts as we have in the past, we can now sell you a full feature set Cinch and you can order the cool metal bits as they are available or as you decide you want to upgrade. The whole company doesn't come to a screeching halt because Boeing placed a big order at the shop and the Cinch hardware got placed on the back burner.

music to my ears.......

Like has been said, the part you are actually missing is just the machined aluminum bits, which you will be able to buy in a couple of weeks. I would have liked to have launched them as an accessory during the pre-order, but our machine shop is - as ever - bogged down making super high margin medical and aerospace parts and our order slipped.

Every other aspect of the Cinch II is better - the leather is nicer, the sewing is nicer, the webbing is narrower (3/4" versus 1" wide, but the same weave and thickness), the grip is grippier.
