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.

What's the pricing going to look like on those aluminum replacements?

I have the last version of the Cinch and plan to get the membrane connector - so that I can retain the ability to put the camera on a tripod. The othe option was a quick release - that does not edit as an option for the previous version (?).

If I understand this new strap, it already has a arca compatible plate and so I don't really need a quick release - unless I want to remove the strap for some reason.

I can use the strap and put the camera on a tripod etc etc. is that right?

$20-$25.

CNC shops have gotten busy as the economy has picked up, so the cost for us to make aluminum bits has also risen pretty substantially (20%-30%). We anticipated a lot of folks would miss the machined hardware, but the flip side of the coin is that continuing to offer the Cinch with only machined hardware would have driven the base price up to $80.

So the modularity allows us to split the difference. Buying a Cinch 2 + the machined bits as an accessory will cost the same as what we would have needed to raise the price of the Cinch to in the first place.

Greg,

Did you get any sleep last night? I was up early (on the right coast) and you were posting.

Congrats on the new Cinch 2. I am looking forward to watching the future developments you have planned. I love my Cinch 1 and don't need an upgrade but as time goes on and you get the Cinch "for cameras using a larger lens" out (something mentioned in the past), I'm sure I'll buy one of those.

I wish you continued success and hope the Cinch will become the new standard for camera straps. It's so nice to use a product that keeps my camera from flopping around as I walk.

Will the aluminum parts on my Cinch v1 work if I put them on my new Cinch v2 or do I have to wait for the new ones?

Frankly I love the look of the Cinch v1 --- very "i" like. But if the Cinch v2 works better I will probably just roll with that and sell my v1.

I'd probably sell if for $90. I'm good like that. :mrgreen:

Nope. We moved the Cinch 2 to 3/4" wide webbing instead of 1" webbing. Same soft/loose weave, same manufacturer, same everything - including the strength rating (which I still don't really understand). Only it is 25% lighter and smaller.

The slide is also sewn in, so you would need to cut up your Cinch to install it. The tri-glide on the back has the same modular notch as the Cinch 2 hardware, though we never wound up using it for anything.

Though, if anyone ever wonders if our hardware will fail with the modular notch cuts on it so you can remove the webbing, know that every Cinch sold has (sort of secretly) had the same cutouts on the back, and has never once failed.

I was wondering the same thing!

My sentiments as well!

Hi Greg

I saw someone ask a similar question to this, but didn't see your response so apologies if you have already answered this. The bulk of the time I am using my 70-200 2.8 II and I'm just wondering if you found there is a preferable configuration for longer lenses like this, or just using the tripod mount still works best.

Thanks

When I use my big lens, I attach one point to the camera strap point, and the other to the lens foot. This really distributes the weight evenly.

Thanks, that sounds good. I have the loop, which I like a lot, but it does seem to let my camera swing around a lot with certain lens.

Yes, but sounds like on the v2, Greg is recommending both attachments to the arca plate, so with the big lens, would it be one end to the arca plate and the other to the lens foot?

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 thought about this, but I assume that would carry the camera horizontally which I am not sure is a good idea.

Depends on the lens, I suppose. Those lens and body mounts are designed to support a lot of weight--especially the pro bodies. I wouldn't worry at all about something like a 70-200 II, but a 400 2.8 and up... You don't plan on walking around with any 1200L's, right? :p

I was more thinking about the camera sitting in the horizontal position its more likely to bump into things as it would stick out
